Is it Christmas already? ...

... I think I must have fallen asleep for a few weeks and woken up to find Christmas has arrived.  "Why?" some of you are asking. "What on earth is she on about now?" the rest of you are wondering.

Well, you remember I won a giveaway from Heather at Creative Confessions?  The parcel arrived a few days ago, and just see all these gorgeous fabrics in it? The ones on the left are all lovely brushed cottons, which I keep stroking, and which are going to become a lap quilt one day soon.  Some of the others will look great in the Drunkards' Path quilt I have planned, and I have ideas for most of the others too. Thank you once again Heather.

Then Leona at Leona's Quilting Adventure sent me a great Christmas panel to say thanks for some blocks I sent her.  That was so unexpected, and I want to say thank you so much Leona, that was a lovely thought and this panel is going to become a lap quilt very quickly I think.

Then I woke up yesterday to find I had won two more giveaways!  Woww, this is me!  I am the person who never wins anything.  Well I can't say that anymore can I?  I have won some fabric from Ruth at Country Log Cabin.  There is a charm pack of "Happy" plus some coordinating fabrics.  I am thrilled about this, and already know exactly what I am going to do with it, but I can't say anything yet.  Thank you Ruth, I can hardly wait to receive this.  In addition, I won a very generous prize from Abbe at Copper Patch.  She recently celebrated her 30th birthday and decided to give away $30 to someone, with the proviso it must be spent on something the winner really wants for herself. I'll have no problems with that then, thanks Abs.

So now you see why I thought it might be Christmas  already?

Now thinking of winning giveaways, you are probably all wondering when I'm going to announce who won that lovely book I was giving as a trick or treat prize?  Well, the answer is now.  I used Random.org as usual to draw the winner, and it is
and lucky number 13 is ..................... Sandie, from crazy'boutquilts  who, like me, specially liked the cover quilt.  OK, so here's the deal Sandie.  I let you have the book, then you make that quilt and give it to me.  That's fair isn't it?

Don't forget, the next Christmas Quiltalong day is on Saturday.  Come and join us everyone.
