Winnings and a Flimsy

I've been a lucky giveaway winner lately and thought I'd share some pictures today. Cindy from Tops to Treasures drew my comment for 8(!!) candy charm packs of Midwinter Reds which is a line I have been admiring all fall.  Let's just say that when I'm done using UFOs as leader/ender projects I'm going to start making adorable 9 patches with these - thanks again Cindy!

Kristy who blogs at Quiet Play had a giveaway from Kate Spain's new line Daydream which hasn't even been released yet in the US (Kristy lives in Australia) - so what a treat this is as I adore all things Kate Spain. I'm thinking a table topper in 2014... thanks a bunch Kristy!
I was also the lucky winner of 2 gift certificates to The Fat Quarter Shop - one from Elizabeth@Such a Sew and Sew and the other from Kate who blogs at Swim Bike Quilt. Elizabeth sponsors a monthly finishing linky party called A Stitch in Time and I was chosen as her September winner. Kate heads up a wonderful event called 100 Quilts for Kids and I was lucky enough to be selected for one of my Project Linus quilts.

After several days of decision making I selected a fat quarter bundle of yummy Pearl Bracelets, two adorable Boo Crew charm packs and this month's Schnibble pattern "Morning Joe". I've missed out on the last few months since I got behind... but now that all of my Schnibble WIPs are finished I'm joining in again. Thanks again Elizabeth and Kate!
I ended up adding another column of blocks to Primary D9P yesterday and assembled the top last night. Still loving those pops of yellow across the top!  
This UFO is on my Q4 goal list so if it doesn't get quilted this month it will go on my December list. I'm thinking yellow binding will be the perfect finishing touch.
Quilting or paper piecing is on my agenda today... hopefully both actually as I've got a pretty open day ahead!


  1. super envious of that DayDream charmpack -- I can't wait to see it when it comes to the US

  2. Wow - you have some very cool winnings this month. Lucky ducky! The 8 candy packs will give you enough for something pretty substantial with those gorgeous reds.

    I'm actually hoping that my husband decided to go to the state football playoffs so that my house will be quiet when I get home from work tonight and I can do some guilt-free sewing. But in the meantime I'm glad I can do some blog reading during a little break in a long busy day. Eye candy was just what I needed!

  3. Oh my look at how lucky you are! Congratulations on all of your winnings!
    Your quilt looks like it will be a cozy one to snuggle with!

  4. congrats on all those awesome wins. I really want some of the midwinter reds.

  5. wow - so lucky :-) Enjoy all your new fabric.

  6. Lucky girl! The quilt is beautiful!

  7. Well, how fun is that! I think you should buy a lottery ticket ; )

  8. I have been looking at the Midwinter Red also but since I have a huge stack of fabric I am trying to be good and not buy. I just recently read about the Schnibbles that several people are doing. I like that Morning Joe. I may have to try and get that pattern.
