It's a Good Day
It's always a good day when you receive a sweet package in the mail - wrapped up with ribbon and everything.
It's even sweeter when you unwrap the package to find a beautiful assortment of fat quarters! This is a bundle I won from The Intrepid Thread through Maureen Cracknell Handmade. I love this color palette And I already know what I'm going to make.
A Lil' Twister quilt! I love that quilt pattern. I wanted to make my daughter a quilt from
that method, but she doesn't care for it, *gasp* - I didn't think there
was anyone out there that didn't like that pattern! So, winning this
set of fat quarters gives me the perfect excuse to try out that ruler
:) I think the color combo will be perfect for that quilt. I might
even add in a little more black, as there is one fabric with black
circles, and I think it would be nice to even it out a bit or else it
might stick out too much. There are three oranges, three turquoises and
two grey and one grey with black. I'm thinking I will add another grey
and two more black/whites.
I believe I told you about the wishing well contest our local bank had at Christmas time to encourage people to shop locally in our little town. We put our local receipts into a wishing well in the bank and they drew several winners, who were then awarded a bank check made out to the winner and the business the receipt was from - so you could spend the identical amount as the receipt you won with at that same store. I won a $65 check to our local quilt shop in that drawing. I don't think I ever blogged about it, but I used some of that credit to buy special rulers and notions I'd had my eye on, as well as a new quilt pattern to go along with one of the specialty rulers. The Lil Twister ruler was one of the things I bought. I still have about $20 credit at the quilt shop because there wasn't anything else I felt like I had to have, and I wanted to keep a credit so I could spend money there when I wanted to :) So maybe I'll try to rush down there after the daycare kids leave today and see what fabrics they have in blacks and greys. I seriously need to do some sewing!!
I'm a born again believer in my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ the Son of God. I am a very happily married wife and a homeschooling mom of five of the greatest kids in the world. We live in a little mountain town in Wyoming, which we love. I enjoy reading and studying God's Word, homeschooling my treasures from Heaven, sewing and doing all sorts of crafts.

Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. Psalm 127:3
Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow... For babies grow up, we've learned to our sorrow... So quiet down cobwebs, dust go to sleep... I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep!!
