So how did the weekend go? Super busy on my end.  Saturday I headed over to Holly's early after a healthy dose of coffee.  We needed to get some photos of the finished quilt. I can't wait to share that quilt with you, it's really great. I got to see some of the fun things she's working on and I'm dying over them, and I really can't wait to share them with you. I think working in her new space really has supercharged her creativity.

I had some easy fun sewing too.  I had this little idea for a bag and it worked out pretty good I think.  I remember having a bag like this for my jacks. I loved to play jacks for hours. My mom taught me, and she was awesome at it.  We had those little metal jacks and a red ball.  Now they have the very cheerful plastic jacks, also cute but how the heck to you scoop up all those in one hand?

Anyway, I love the little bag, and I've filled it with some goodies, no jacks though, and have it ready to send off to a friend. It was totally some happy sewing fun. 
Now because I forgot about picking a name on Friday, the winner of the Quiltmaker 100 Blocks magazine is   Blogger Laurie Parrack  who said:
"I love the block. I love all the wonderful things you create. Congrats on being in the magazine. Thanks for a wonderful giveaway."

 Email your mailing address to me Laurie and I'll pass it along to Quiltmaker ! Thanks everyone for your nice comments and of course for the time you spend here with me! You friendship, support and encouragement are wonderful!
