And what a surprise!!

Back in September, Angie from A Quilting Reader's Garden asked us a question with  "An envelope of goodies to who guesses right. What in the envelope?  That's a an incentive.  Well I was the lucky winner and what a surprise it is!! Just a little envelope but she managed to stuff it with a lot of goodies. Like ...

An astronaut quilt kit. Very blue, very beautiful fabric, very much in love and so are the boys. (I will keep this one and bring it on the retreat in May 2015, since it is already cut and packed!)

A fat quarter of lovely yummy candy fabric and a stencil. As a hand quilter, I love these. But that's not all. 

I also got another kit to make a sunflower. Look at the lovely fabric. I am so happy. (You might see this one again as an embellishment on a bag I would like to make. I think it will go well with the fabric I've picked.)

Thank you, thank you, Angie. So generous. I love it all.

As for me, well, this week I finished machine quilting the charity quilt called "A speck of colours".  I am binding it today between loads of laundry and some pumpkin baking. I did the embroidery on the label for my son's flannel quilt. I know the first picture was the reader's favorite but I went with the last one. I wanted to see it with the embroidery and ... I like it.

It looks pretty good, wouldn't you say? For those of you who do hexies, no I didn't fussy cut this one. It just happened by chance. Isn't that fun? Only his name is missing and then to stitch it to the quilt. And that will be two quilts completely done! Yeah!

Hope you too find some time to whip stitch something together.

Until next time. ...


  1. you are busy... there is lots to keep you going with the lovely prize envelope...

  2. What a wonderful coincidence that your little hexies all lined up so nicely! They certainly look as if they've been fussy cut.

    Congratulations on the awesome win! What cool stuff!

Yes, you've heard me complain about how hot it is at the moment in Canada but I want to finish the flannel quilt for my son.  Our emblem...
