We have a lucky winner: Joyce! My DS put his hand in the bag and out came this piece of paper.
I will send Joyce some fabric as it seems that she loves them!

I want to thank you all for the nice comments you left on the last post. I hope to keep on sewing, knitting and reading lots of blogs for many years to come!

Last week I went to Ursel´s LQS. It moved to a bigger, brighter, nicer location with lots of big windows. If only I did not have to go to work, I think I could visit the shop everyday!

Anyway, of course I did not leave the shop empty-handed. I plan to make a it-bag (!) out of that lovely fabric.

Tomorrow is our monthly quilt group meeting. I hope to see many nice works there.

If only the snow would stop! You know what, I think I am getting allergic to snow! And in Australia it is much too hot. I wish I could send Carol some snow flakes with her yarn!

I wish you a nice week with mild weather!

Thanks to your husband for picking my name. I can't wait to see my prize!

DS is dear son, DH is dear husband. It's hard to keep them straight sometimes. Congrats to Joyce! :D Happy crafting!

I just love how one little squishy package can inspire so much. I'm currently make a charity quilt from fabrics a friend gave me. Funny she said she doesn't like purple, but she loves what I've done with the Carpenter's Circle I made with the fabs. :D

Happy monthly meeting Gwen!

Congratulations to Joyce!

What fun that quilt shop looks to be - I just love seeing all those colorful bolts of fabric lined up on the shelves *s*

Well, I think your son was cheating!! Why didn't he picked me? Ahh, yes, I wasn't part of the competition!!
Still snowing here, still no school, remind me never to book a skiing holiday, never, ever!! Seen enough snow to last me a life time!!
Love from snowy, slushy, yukky, england...

J'espère qu'un jour j'irai voir ce magasin car j'y trouverai sans doute queques tissus à acheter.
