I'm a winner!!! and I have Boobs to send off!

You will never guess that I'm a winner!!!  I won the prize on Online Quilting, a rotary cutter holder - it came in the mail today... check out the picture below to see it. (I'm going to use it for my sunglasses in my purse.)

She also sent a lovely  flower pin that she'd made, a bag of buttons (I put on some dark fabric so you could see them better), a card of hand sewing needles and one of her fabulous quilted post cards!!!! So much more than I expected when I left a comment.  Thank you so much Lis!!!!!

Found these while cleaning last week. ( I guess there is some value in cleaning.)  They got lost because of cleaning, so I guess they were meant to be found that way, too.  They are paper pieced and I simplified the pattern from the book 365 Foundation Quilt Blocks  by Linda Causee.  I don't know what I'll do with them.  Maybe I can cut one down far enough to use it for Victoria's signature block donation.  We'll see.

Here is the latest batch of Boobs to be sent off.  They are coming your way, Nina.
One is a star from the wall hanging that isn't quite going anywhere.  One is a  paper pieced cardinal leftover from Christmas cards that I never took pictures of. One is a pink flower from the quilt I am working on now. Three of them are  leftover Drunkard's Path blocks used to make a vest - either the one for my Mom, or the one I made for me. Three are quilted. Most are made with scraps from my snippet bags. They are fun to make especially when I don't know what else to do with myself. I use leftover batting and the backs are from larger pieces... mostly from a skirt I got tired of before I finished it. (I have never sewn many of my own clothes, and the things I did make for myself I really never liked to wear.  What is that?)
Anyway, thanks for tuning in... Going to have a giveaway later this week... I just don't know what yet.
So come on back!
Love you all,
