I HIT THE "JACKPOT" TODAY--

I surely did and what a surprise---
Little sister came by today and said I had "two" packages down in the office from the mail man---so I flew down stairs and picked them up---I knew I had won something and so I was waiting for that to come--
But along with the Quilt Magazine that I won---I also got some other "goodies"--
See there is the magazine--along with a pretty card and "7" knitted baby hats for me to donate to my local hospital---the hats are sooo pretty and soft and in the right colors--and here is where I took them today--
This is Helen and she live two apartment from me and she volunteers at the Hospital and is always taking my hats up for me--she is always on the go--was actually surprised to find her home today!!!!
Now these "goodies" came by way of--Cape Coral, Fl and from a great blogging friend, Robin at www.rsislandcrafts.com/  so be sure to stop by and visit her--


Then the second package was from another great blogging friend--
This was not a winning---just a random act of love and friendship---wonder what is in that "odd" shaped package---
OH how cute--heart lollipops---see someone did remember me for Valentines Day!!!
let's see what else did she send--
a real pretty spool of embroidery thread and in my very favorite color---pink--and two pieces of fabric--again in my color--pink and a cute cute note pad--with not only pink in color, but with a cat on it---wonder how she know I loved cats????  These gifts are from Alice in VA at: aliceinquilterland.blogspot.com so be sure and stop by and say "Hi" to her tooo!!!
What can I say---it was a truly great day and --

Yippee and --


Some of you asked about the snowman pillow embroidery I did and here is the pattern--
It is a Crabapple pattern---I did one of their designs last year with a snowman--but now I want to redo him to go with this one more than it does now---soooo!!!!



Got alittle applique done this morning with my friend Ann here quilting and for lunch--after she left I did get the rest of the pieces cut for Sunday Best--hopefull---now I said "hopefully" tomorrow I will be ready to "launch" into getting this quilt top off the ground!!!!!
Don't for get today is Tuesday and that Little sister did a post on her site!!!!
