Hi Quilting friends!

I wanted to drop by and update you on a few things. 

The last time I came over and blogged I was telling you about Summer's giveaway on her blog The Easy Quilter

Well it seems that I gifted Summer with some HST and she wanted to pass the rest on like I did to her. So I told you all about it so you could enter. Well she has sense won a few more giveaways and guess what?!!!! I won some giveaways too!

I entered a podcast anniversary over at The Off Kilter Quilt and I won a $25 gift card to the The Fat Quarter Shop 

I have never ordered from them before this was a prefect time to try them out.

And this is what I got! Charm packs and some of them are from Cotton + Steel!
Cotton + Steel .......Eeekkkk
So thank you to Francis for the giveaway and you guy's can visit her at The Off Kilter Quilt

Well then the lovely Donna who blogs over at Donnas Lavender Nest was having a giveaway for some of Aurifil's new thread that matches the new Flower Patch line of fabric by Lori Holt well I entered it, and I won!

When you get a package from Donna it is always packaged beautifully. Donna has her very own web site HERE where she sells beautiful fabric and notions. She also has her very own long arm service and she does wonderful work. 

Imagine my surprise when I opened the package and found these:

That's right Donna included 2 fat quarters with the thread! I was so surprised! She wrote me a little note and told me she just had to send them along. I'm glad she did they are beautiful. 

Donna also has an Etsy shop Here if you prefer to shop there.

I am going to host a giveaway of my own soon. I know that I keep saying that but, things get in the way some times. 

In other news I have been working on the cross quilt so I will leave you a few pictures to see a little progress. 

Sorry for the cruddy pictures. I took them with my cell phone and was in a hurry and as you know when you move a cell phone at all while making pictures this is what you get. I hope you can see a little of what I have been up too. I hope to blog again soon and tell you I have the cross quilt finished. (it is a Christmas gift after all)

Linking up with:

Finish it Up Friday @ Crazy Mom Quilts
Show Off Saturday @ Sew Can She

Have a great weekend.

Hugs and best stitches to you,

a.k.a. Mrs. Sew & Sew
