Exciting Days

I have had a few exciting quilting days and I have not had to do any of the work! Saturday I went to a beautiful quilt guild show. Unfortunately, my memory stick got left in my computer at home.The quilts were gorgeous and there were great vendors too. Just for a lark, I decided to see if I could find an EZ Easy Dresden Ruler. I had been looking for one locally 2 years ago, when I was in the Bee Beautiful Bee, but couldn't find one so I used another ruler instead. At one of the booths, they had one hanging on a rack all by itself. I was so excited. I just found out yesterday too that there is an EZ Dresden Challenge starting June 1. There are some amazing prizes to be won!

The guild had a really neat door prize. They had collected all the spools the guild had used for a year, put them into a huge raffle cage and had you guess the number. I guessed my daughter's favourite number and on Sunday evening I got a call to say I had won the basket. I have no idea what is in the basket because I was doing it to keep my kids busy.

Yesterday when I got home, I had the most beautiful parcel package I had ever seen.


 It was the swap quilt from Cheryl of Polka Dots & Rick Rack. The quilt is stunning.


She also had made me this really cool journal and a mug rug. It will go perfectly with my Jelly Roll Swap quilt once it is done. I can sip hot chocolate put my mug on my mug rug, lie under the quilt and watch a movie.

The winner of my Sew Mama Sew Giveaway is  #14, Jennie P. who would love to visit Hogwarts. I read all of the amazing places everyone would like to visit, and I have to say I now have quite a bit more added to my list.
