What a Gift!

I received the most amazing gift/prize that I won from Handmade by Alissa's Blog.  Alissa held her 2nd annual Action for Kivu Fundraiser this year.  If you have not heard of it check out her blog.  What a great cause she supports.  Anyway, I sent in a contribution and won this fabulous prize.....................
Some of you may ask why this prize is so wonderful???   I love this Erin Michael's count by number fabric.  I have been hoarding Lush for some time much like my Neptune hoarding! I have been able to get my hands on a small piece of the deer fabric but not enough for the quilt I wanted to make and now I have entire yard!  This fabric is OOP and so hard to come by.  I am truly the lucky one and I got to give to a great cause in the process.  The bird fabric is fabulous too.  Not sure where that will go but it will find a home too!!       

Other activities around the sewing cave is this little jewel, Swoon by Camille Roskelly.  Love this pattern and love the Art Gallery fabrics I pulled from the stash to make the quilt.  This is one of the classes I will be teaching at Harper's this session.    I'll tell you about the others next post.  Still working on my class samples and just got my machine out of the hospital yesterday. It was a traumatic time for both of us!!

Keep on stitching!
