A girlfriend from Colorado stopped by for a visit and brought me these flowers! I thought I would share them with you.
I forget how much I enjoy cut flowers until I'm around them. They sure liven up a dreary fall day.
I won a giveaway, without even trying!!! Just by doing something that comes natural to me.....chewin' the fat or in blog speak, leaving comments. I left the most!!
Rene from Rene Creates had a clever little giveaway for folks who had been visiting her blog. She came up with several ways to win, but didn't tell anyone, just folks stopping by qualified in different ways. I won these fabrics and a pattern from Quilters Quarters. I love the colors, plus batiks are my favorites. If I only had a nickel for every time my report card said, "talks too much in class". Well it finally got me something!!
Rene is a very artistic and creative quilter and photographer. She made this card which came with my goodies. She also has the most adorable blog, cute colors and pretty blue buttons everywhere, go stop by and say "Hi", maybe she's having another secret giveaway!

Rene also sent this Breast Cancer Awareness guitar pin from Hard Rock Cafe! I think I'm going to keep it here on this little batch of fabrics that I keep on my shelves.
Here it is, next to my Lessons Learned Journal, pink weights, and pretty tea cup.
I love collecting little sewing things and whatnots and setting them on these shelves in my sewing room. Several things are from my daughter.
I got these pins right after I decided on my blog name.
There's one daisy in the middle. They set on the shelves too.
A little while back I bought some fabric from Stashmaster who was cleaning out her stash and I bought a kit that came with this purse, with fabric inside!! Isn't it cute. Now you folks who are lucky enough to have access to quilt shops have probably seen this many times, but it's new to me!! I don't know if I'll ever use that fabric, it looks too cute in that purse to take out!!
I did do some sewing today, I made a sampler block of block #2 for my Faceted Jewels quilt. But you're just going to have to come back tomorrow if you want to see it. I'm at my daily picture limit.
