Winnings

On Friday, I came home to two special packages in my mailbox! A week or so ago, I made a comment on Pat Sloan's blog about what quilting podcasts I listen to and how long I've been listening. I have been listening to Annie Smith's Quilting Stash podcast almost since it's inception and I said as much to Pat. I didn't realize that I was entering a drawing and I won! I was able to get one of Pat's books autographed by her. Do you listen to Annie Smith's Quilting Stash podcast ? If you do, you would have heard her mention me.

The other package was an absolutely beautiful handknit scarf that I won in a draw from Vicki, at Knitting Dragonflies. I've been looking at the black scarf/hoodie combo I normally wear and thought that it is time to brighten up my look, so this is the perfect accessory. But wait there's more! She included these fantastic refrigerator magnets in my favorite color: blue. I've been wanting to add a bit of color in my outerwear wardrobe and this lovely scarf just fits.

  7. I will have to check out the podcasts - which is a new term to me, lOL. It seems I am always on the left of the learning curve when everyone else is cruising down the other side. Very nice prizes you received. I am going to have to check out that book!

  8. Wow! How wonderful! It's so nice to get things in the mail, and those are REALLY NICE things! I do listen to Annie's podcast. I've really enjoyed her, especially this last long trip she took and we all got to ride along 'virtually' with her!
