I have just had amazing luck. Not only did I win one of Sweet Myrtle's really beautiful brooches, but much to my surprise I've also just won a bundle of Backstitch's Sea Hurricane Solids, which was Betty's incredibly generous giveaway over at Anything Goes. I'm already planning the stunning (of course) quilt I'm going to make (after a lot more practice).
Sweet Myrtle and Betty: I am very grateful to both of you, and feeling very happy with life!
It's just as well I'm basking in this warm glow, as I'm going to have a houseful of small children this afternoon. The schools are closing in anticipation of very high winds later today. It's going to be interesting.
