A lucky win

I follow Bonnie Hunters blog and one day she had links to lots of sites for a blog hop.. So I started clicking and reading. There was a competition going on to win the latest QUILTMAKERS 100 Blocks magazine. I entered a few times on different sites. There were a lot of entries too.
I was a lucky winner here.
This is the magazine... I'm sure I'll do lots out of it. They are 12" blocks finished. Some great designers too... There are also a few quilt layout suggestions...


I have had some lovely friends visit and help me out while I have been recovering...

  • Kris... Thanks for the cinnamon bun. We ate it for supper and then toasted it for breakfast. So yummy....
  • Nikki... Thanks for washing my hair and making me feel decent again and the other running around you are doing for me...
  • Sue... Thanks for the beautiful, home made corn and asparagus soup and those amazing vanilla slices from Romsey Bakery. They were the best job...
  • Christine & Michael... Thanks for your lovely visit that you squeezed in amongst all your goings on and before your trip. The scones were delicious..
  • Sue...  Thanks for the lunch and afternoon tea supplies and most of all, your company. It's always a pleasure having you stay.. 
  • Kristy.... Thanks Of course to my lovely daughter for the every day help with the horrible cleaning jobs, supermarket runs, bill paying and anything else I need. Getting dinner prepared and cooking the roast...  Really do appreciate it.
  • Tony.... And I can't forget my wonderful husband. Running around with his doctors visits, my hospital/Drs visits, cooking & cleaning, shopping, picking up after me. Lastly, putting up with me at the same time as his recovery. He is doing a great job...
  • Love you all......
