I'm Back and I Won!

I've spent the last week in Las Vegas and no I didn't win at the slot machines but I did win a kit for this adorable little valentines quilt from Daisy Cottage Quilting. Isn't it just the sweetest little quilt, I can't wait for it to land in my mailbox. If you haven't seen Sharon's online shop it's worth a visit she has some wonderful kits, patterns and BOM's, all the things we quilters can't resist.

I didn't gamble much more than a few dollars, just wanted to try out a few machines for fun. DH had a business trip to Vegas and I went along for a little shopping, shows and sight seeing. We visited with some family and friends while there as well. I always forget how much walking is involved and boy my feet were sore but it's fun to see all the excitement of it all.

Yesterday I spent a few hours in my sewing room and finished a little heart table runner. While away I've been watching the "Be Mine Blog Tour". Each day designers posted a Valentines Day project with a tutorial. I just loved Sherri's table runner and got to work on it as soon as I got home. I'll show a picture as soon as it's quilted.

Happy Quilting.

Oh lucky you. That is adorable!
Las Vegas is my old stomping grounds. Lived there for over 10 years. Did you make it to any quilt shops there?

That's so awesome Wendy that you won Sharon's cute table topper or it could be a little wall hanging. Glad you had fun in Vegas. I also want to make Sherri's table runner.

Great win, Wendy! I haven't been blogging much the last year until recently, because my husband died and my life changed entirely, but I'm getting back to it now, and thought I'd check out what you were doing!

Oooh Vegas! Too bad you didn't win a little extra cash. That would be great fabric money!! Looking forward to seeing your table runner.
