There's lot's to show and tell tonight--let's see where do I start===What Mrs. Perkins==Oh--she says you always start with this:
SOUNDS and taste good to me!!!!

OK Mrs. Perkins--

It's (past) time to pick our Fall winner--after going over the entries, we decided no body really had done anything really special--so we put all the names on paper --

And we shuffled them up--

and Mrs. Perkins had the fun job of reaching into the pile and picking up a slip--

And she did a very good job of picking out a winner for us--and that is======

ARIANE of Ariane's Crafts---CONGRATULATIONS--ARIANE!!!!  and I know Ariane--you would like to know what it is you won----WELL--Mrs. Perkins and I are still "arguing" over that ?????  But we will see who gets her way soon--so stayed tuned!!!

NOW I GOT TWO PACKAGES IN THE MAIL TODAY--the first one I ordered:

I found some little bird fabrics on esty--and she sent me two little metal bird with it--wasn't that sweet???


Joy of  Joy's quilts and Alice of Alice in Quilterland but of AU--send me this great magaizine from AU--OH what lovely patterns---THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH GIRLS--I TRULY CAN'T DECIDE WHICH ONE TO START FIRST--even little sister found a couple things she liked!!!!!!  these gals were in my Christmas challenge are are good friends themselves and wanted to send me a "thank you"  which was not necessary--but welcomed.

AND I HAVE  A TOTAL FINISH--that is a start and a finish for the month of September--it is our Schnibbles pattern and her is mine in all it's glory--

OPPS--this is the back---

And this is the front--using the Winter Song fabric line and it is all hand quilted---I can't believe I got it all done by the end of the month--have 4 days to rest before the next pattern is announced!!!!!

Weather update---it is now Fall--it is cold and chilly and wet here----oh well--great quilting weather you 'all!!!!!!!

Take care---Hugs, to all--Di
