...and the winner is...

Wow, thanks for all the comments! I have drawn a name from all those who left comments. And the winner is........... oh, first I will post a picture or two. Teehee, how's that for forcing you to slog your way through my whole posting?!

Remember a while back I showed you this table runner? I finally got the binding on it (with one or two maladjusted corners, but what's a girl to do?). And I decided to put it and the little basket quilt in the small quilt auction at our store. The show opens on Feb 6 and then anyone who wants to can come bid on our small quilts (as well as enjoy gazing at all the gorgeous quilts in our show)! Come on, folks. One person is coming all the way from California! So can't you hop on a plane, too, and come from Australia, Japan, Norway, Iowa or wherever you happen to be at the moment? I promise our show will be worth it!



I got the binding on this giant quilt that Darcie quilted for me. What a big piece of fabric to be pushing around and through my little machine. But I was happy to get the binding on. It always adds so much to it to get a quilt completely done... all I have left now is a label.



Oh, I almost forgot. The reason I'm showing you this picture of the quilt that Darcie quilted for me... well, yes, to brag that I got the binding done on it. But the other reason is that Darcie won my drawing!!! I get to send her a prize of some kind. So watch out, Darcie. I don't know what it is yet so I can't even tell you that it is something cool. I'll put my thinking cap on and let you know when it's on its merry way.

Thanks for helping me celebrate my two-year Blogiversary!

the table runner is wonderfully bright as Darcie says -- looking like jewels pilled on a table. Its sure to cheer even the most dreary winter day :-)

How big is that little basket quilt? What will the opening bid be for it? Something about it is calling to me!
