A Package In the Mail...For ME....

Quote for the Day:
“Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them,
 is the true measure of our thanksgiving.”
~W.T. Purkiser

A little over a week ago, Angie over at Sew Scrappy Quilts held a giveaway and I won!  I was so excited because I've never won any of the giveaways that I've entered on quilting sites before.  So imagine my surprise when Angie contacted me and notified me that her dogs, Mr. Cooper and Miss Piper, had chosen MY name from the plastic grocery bag that all the names were put into!  

Okay...I'm really liking Miss Angie already!  First, she is unpretentious and resourceful by using a plastic grocery bag to hold the names of the entrants instead of some fancy-schmancy, high-faluton thing-a-ma-jig!  AND...her dogs are intelligently trained to select a name from the bag!  Okay!  What's not to love about this scenario???  :) the package arrives in the mail!  I don't know about you, but packages in the mail rank right up there with Christmas in my book!  :)

Inside was this nice, neat pile... still my heart...

TWO half-yard panels and EIGHT coordinating fat-quarters!!!  It really IS Christmas!  :)  Or maybe this is a belated birthday present (April 21)!    :O

Panel 1...

Panel 2...

This will make a wonderful, fun baby quilt!  :)  Thank you, Angie for hosting this giveaway!  

BTW, you can reach Angie at!

I was going to show a close-up of the FQ's, but Picassa is telling me that I've reached my limit of "free" photo storage so I'm not sure what I'm going to do to be able to keep uploading pictures to my blog for free.  If anybody out in blogland has any suggestions, please let me know!  :)
