This was my lucky week! First of all, I received a package from Log Cabin Quilter in Florida containing all these darling vintage potholders and other crocheted items! You can see her blog here. Can you believe that she remembered from something on my blog that I collected these and got them for me!! What a sweet lady! Thank you so much.
This little hanging basket was part of the package. I will hang it in my kitchen under a cupboard and maybe I can find something to put in it. Any suggestions?
Then, I was notified that I had won this new magazine! If you are a blogger, you might have known that all the contributors of the 100 blocks had drawings that the Quiltmaker magazine would give away to all the winners. I was very surprised that I won this! There are a lot of neat new block patterns in this. Where do these people come up with new designs all the time?
One day in JoAnn's I was looking at their quilting books and I decided to get this book with iron-on transfers for quilt labels. I think all the books were 40% off. I wasn't sure if I would like it, but I really do! I have several quilts that need labels and I really want to do it. Some of them are quilts by my MIL or owned by her. I found several that I like and I have decided to embroider them.
Here's the first one I'm doing for the new grandbaby (which we just found out will be delivered on Dec. 7). I am waiting until he is born to put in his name and date of birth. I thought this came out really cute. I've got 2 others ready to start work on - one for an antique quilt and one that I made, but never labeled (shame on me).
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! Even with all the problems, we truly do have so much to be thankful for.
