I WON A GIVEAWAY!!!

I won this fabulous giveaway from Debi at Debi Quilts! Look at all the goodies - a book, Easter socks, FQs, a charm pack and thread! Thank you so much, Debi! These will all be put to good use.
Yesterday I went to JoAnn's to see if I could find some thread for my GD's quilt. I decided to go with the variegated thread in green, yellow and orange. Below you can see some of it on part of the quilt with the backing fabric (the peach). I hope it will look good. GD loves bright colors, so I think she'll like it.
While at JoAnn's, I just happened to notice that Debbie Mum fabric was 60% off - which came to $3.19 per yard!! I purchased about 7 yards. I just couldn't help myself!

Our tax appointment turned out quite well - we'll be getting a refund. Yea!!

Yay for you! The variegated thread seems just right for the quilt, I'm sure it will look great. Any plans for the Debbie Mum, or just stash-building?

Lucky you! Your win is better than a visit from the Easter bunny! *grin* I think that thread will look great; I love that backing! Hope you, and all our friends, have a wonderful Easter as we celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord. ---"Love"

Congratulations Ruth! What a fantastic haul of goodies. That book looks very interesting. I like the thread you have chosen too. 60% off fabric! I think you need to stimulate the economy and by up plenty of fabric. Ann :-)
