I Can't Believe My Luck!

I won a raffle quilt last Saturday!!


Susan and I attended the Greater Hartford Annual Gathering.    It was a great event with 2 lectures, raffle baskets, door prizes, lunch and vendors.  Here is the label on the quilt.  I still can't believe it I won it.


Here is the quilt on the guest bed - lovely for Autumn!  Fred T Bear likes it :)


I was able to add to my collection of  Creative Grids rulers.  These are my favorite rulers.  I'm replacing all the sizes I have with these a little at time.  They are pricey - but worth it to me .


I also picked up forked pins.  These pins are terrific.  They don't slip or shift.  I'm the kind of piecer that needs all the help she can get.


And here is some more great luck that came my way.  My blog buddy, Janet, picked me in her recent give away - hooray!  I got the lovely hand quilting book, fun fabric, a lovely card and special halloween candy - from Canada.  Thanks so much Janet I've been enjoying it all so much.
