shazzam!

the last time my quilty pal M and i went to a door prize event, she won a gorgeous Patrick Lose book....today it was my turn....we ventured to the local quilty emporium to hear Alex Veronelli give his Aurifil presentation....and my ticket was drawn for the top prize....a luscious box of thread eye candy!



pretty terrific i'd say...it's 12 weight, good for hand quilting and embroidery....i had to pinch myself as i was totally shocked.....thank you, aurifil, for making such a terrific thread that makes all my old machines happy....and me too!

and the 12 days of christmas wagon train rolls on and on!  here is the list again and be sure and leave comments to be eligible for one of the tula pink fabric prizes!  sarah has all the details....

weekend report

so far it's been a fun weekend....friday the senior center quilty gals had a picnic and taught me how to eat maryland crab....


and once i'd mastered the task of finding the yummy crabmeat, they pronounced me an expert and presented me with my very own mallet....lol


how great is that???   in maine, there is atlantic crabmeat, which is very sweet and briny, but i wasn't sure i'd like the old bay seasoning....but it's delish!  easy to see (and taste) why crabs are a big deal here in maryland....i sure do feel like a native now!

and saturday fired up the old viking for some sewing fun and made these darling baby bibs....aren't they cute?  all from stash--just happened to have a small piece of those baby footprints fabric left and they were perfect.


now i've sunday to get back to a UFO project....and don't forget the 12 days of christmas hop!  below you will find the upcoming days' blog posts with lots of christmasy ideas....and then visit sarah for giveaway details.....
