What I Won, and SIL Retreat Report

I was notified a few weeks ago that I won a blog give-away on Beth’s blog, BZYQLTR.  HOW WONDERFUL!!

My package arrived and here is what she sent…


13 BEAUTIFUL fat quarters, 2 packs of sewing/quilt related note cards, and a tape measure.  You say, “Where is that tape measure?”  See the little tin… it contains a rolled up tape measure.  HOW NEAT!  All of the fat quarters will really expand my collection, and they are beautiful spring-looking fabrics that will go with many different things.

Thanks so much, Beth!!  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE ALL OF IT!! And if YOU have not checked out Beth’s blog, please run over there and do so!!  You will enjoy the visit.

I have just returned from another SIL Spring Retreat at the lake camp.  I’ll give a full report of what all we did in another post, but one of the things I accomplished was to turn my collection of Kaffe Fassett fabrics into 2 jelly rolls (one for me, and one for DD Jenn).  That will probably be used in my next quilt… either a coin quilt or a friendship braid… I’m still pondering this.


I also got the Swanky Friendship Braid quilt hemmed, and now just need to get the label made and attached.  This will be gifted to one of my sisters soon.

I got a quilt top made for the other sister… now to squeeze it into the quilt schedule.  (Pictures will follow later!)

And my art quilt got “blinged” in a big way.  DD Jen came out that day and visited… she was amazed at the process of applying crystals.  Here is a sneak peak at the bling, and I’ll post several other pictures later.


NOW:  Off to quilt, finish returning all my “stuff” I carried to retreat back to their original places, a little housework, etc.  The next post will also feature projects of my SILs… they both accomplished a lot, too.

BE BLESSED TODAY in all you put your hands to!
