Winner, Winner!!

I love my mail lady - she has delivered lots of fun stuff in the last week.  Not squishy packages, but the next best thing!  A few weeks ago I signed up for a giveaway on Mary's Cottage Quilts blog and I actually won!  I never win  - but you know that this is like getting presents, right?  And I LOVE PRESENTS!!!!  The 3 winners got to choose any two of Mary's patterns.  These are the ones I chose...
 Aren't they nice?  Of course, I love basket blocks, and the sampler has lots of awesome blocks in it.  Thanks Mary!

I also received a magazine in the mail from a friend...
I have never had a chance to see Quilt Mania before - they don't seem to sell it anywhere locally.  It is really different from the usual quilt magazines. I haven't gotten all the way through it yet, but so far I really like it!  Thanks Kim!

And last, but certainly not least...
I have been patiently awaiting (NOT!) this brand new magazine.  It is wonderful - all of the designers are great - amazing projects, love the feel of it even.  It's more like a book than a magazine.  My only complaint is that it only comes out quarterly!  Wish it was monthly!!  If you have a chance to pick it up - be sure to do it.  Or, you can get a subscription here.  You won't regret it!

I posted lots of new jewelry on my website yesterday - be sure to check it out!

Have a great day!!


  1. Quiltmania is a favorite of mine and I am looking forward to getting the Primitive Quilts magazine. Lots of inspiration for you to play with.

  2. Ohhhh...what fun mail! I love the patterns you picked! I see Quiltmania once in a while at JoAnns - it has some incredible projects for sure! I'm also so happy to see you got the new magazine, which means mine can't be far behind!

  3. Woo Hoo on the wins!! Both look like their going to be great patterns. I like Quiltmania magazine and pick it up here and there. Didn't find the Primitive Quilts, but maybe the news stands will have it next week. I'm dying to see it.

  4. I love mail goodies!!! What a way to brighten your day!

  5. Joann's carries Quiltmania and their magazines are usually discounted 10% or if not on sale, you can use coupons. This is what I do. Luv Quiltmania but it is a little pricey. Hope this helps.
