One thing that happened is that when cleaning out my gmail inbox, I discovered a flagged email from a ways back from Becca at Sew Me a Song congratulating me on winning a prize, a gift certificate for Scraptastic Tuesday. I could not recall using said gc, so I emailed Becca to ask if she could check her records if I had...apparently I had not. Yay! So this is what I got!! And yes, I followed Helen of Midget Gem's "rule to be cool" (my moniker for her fair is fair attitude towards fabric purchasing/winning): I spent some of my own dollars as well as the gift certificate, as, it would be rude not to, right?!
Damask from Tiny Dancers by Melimba for Kokka Fabrics (a fabric company whose fabrics I own none of, and wow, are they ever nice)
Three 1/2 yard cuts from Minimalista for Art Gallery Fabrics:
Prisma in Honeycomb, Flora in both Watermelon and Honeycomb
Sausalito Cottage by Holly Holderman and Lakehouse Dry Goods, probably headed into something for Dayna (hmm, don't think I own any of their fabrics either!)
Beaded Stripe from Tiny Dancers by Melimba for Kokka Fabrics
Grey Floral from StudioE
Becca's prices are very good, and be sure to check out her sale and clearance sections! She has excellent customer service and wow, does she ship FAST! I know I plan to increase my selection of Stof, Kokka, and Yuwa fabrics for sure through her.
If you're wondering just what is the quilt these lovelies are posed upon, it is Dayna's grad quilt, Shoot For the Moon. I think we could take another look at it right?! I had the pleasure of sleeping under it last night, and man, that wool batting has lovely warmth. I was concerned because I like weight upon me; there was no need to be.
She had some fun with our doggies...
Hard to believe that I took this just yesterday at a darling friend's house. Over the past few months I have been completely overwhelmed by the kindnesses (many) of my friends. I am so blessed.
Speaking of true friends, I got together with a whole bunch of Alberta ones this past week, such a treat. Here is a finished pyramid pouch that my friend Janis made. You saw it in progress a little while ago.
