Popping in to say thank-you!

What a great weekend as I was able to stay on track with my Christmas Cafe club project.  I'm the only one with a Bernina embroidery machine as the other gals have Husqvarna's and because my machine is such a big gal I don't take her to any of the classes but just take notes and inspiration.  Therefore I do all the stitch outs by myself which means I learn along the way with quick emails to Natasha our fearless leader who explains my fears away.

I just need to trim the threads and remove the stabilizer from the back and tuck them away until next months project.  These designs are from Embroidery Library and wow if you want some good deals check them out and see if you can leave without buying some great designs at great prices.
I've been fortunate to win some great giveaways this past couple of months and here is my loot!
Here is a cute quilt kit from Wake Up Susie aka Jamie Wood in little boy fabrics.
A sweet Chickadee fabric kit from Holly McLean which is a bird that I will always remember from my childhood days in the winter time on the Saskatchewan prairie.
From Primitives Gatherings a cute sheep wool project.
The Jelly Roll is from Hayley aka Mrs. Pickles and it is a cute Bear Country School via Green Fairy Quilts.  I can see a sweet child's quilt from that one day, can't you.
This is a great big bundle of light blue fabric from Ellie Quilter, the gal from  This win will surely help out my tiny stash of blue fabrics.  Thank-you everyone for your generosity and I will do my best at working them into my quilty projects.
