New Ruler and Mini Quilt Progress

Look what I got in the post. My ruler that I won from 'I Have a Notion', during their thirty days of Giveaways. Kelly is such a genuine person and has such wonderful things to buy in her shop.

The ruler came just at the right moment, as I am working on my Mini Quilt Swap for the Quilting Gallery. I have shown you the embroidery already, but I decided I would make another one, so that I could practice for the swap. I bought some reproduction Jane Austen material called 'Winchester', and I am going to make two mini quilts, one for me, one for my partner. Below you can see me using the ruler to cut out the material for the Prairie Points. It was so handy!!
Thankful Thoughts

Yesterday we had sleety rain. Today we had hail showers (see picture of hail storm in progress!), and it is cold!! Thank goodness we are warm and snug indoors.

I must away and do more on the mini.
Till next time.

I Won! I Won! I Won! I Won! I Won!

I wrote about a great Giveaway in my last post, here. More than thirty days of great gifts (and also great posts) from 'I Have a Notion (IHAN)'. The amount of work that went in to organise this event is mind-boggling ... But would you believe it - I won a prize!!! ME!! I WON!! I never win anything, so I am really excited!! I do love rulers, so I am going to have great fun using this. I would like to thank Kelly from IHAN for celebrating her one year celebration of her business in such a fun way, and also Simplicity Studio for being so generous with their great prizes. I had a ball!

I will be off island tomorrow for one day, as my grandchildren are returning home. We have had so much fun with them this holiday, and I will tell you about it next time.
