I Had Better Buy A Lottery Ticket

I could not believe it Monday morning when I looked at Amber's blog, A Little Bit Biased.  I won her pattern, Twisted!

It is so darn cute - and it will give me an excuse to buy a layer cake to make it!  Thanks Amber!  I just can't believe I have won three giveaways in the last couple of months!  I should probably quilt commenting so that others can have a chance.  LOL.  I am thinking something Christmasy, maybe???

I went shopping last night with my daughter and my granddaughter.  That child is growing like a weed and needed some more clothes!  Anyway, we went to JoAnn's and I got some white Kona cotton that people are raving about.  I had a 50% off coupon so it was quite a bargain.  I'll let you know what I think when I use it.  It feels real nice and not flimsy or thin.

Speaking of Christmas, it is almost time to get out the Christmas books and magazines and start looking through them.  My sister-in-law, Kim, will be starting the music pretty soon!  I love the holidays and I am going to enjoy them this year!  Last year I had knee surgery on Halloween, so I spent much of the holiday time recooperating and did practically NO decorating.  This year I hope to change that!  I don't want to go over the top, but I want to really enjoy it this year.

Progress is being made on the t-shirt quilt.  I only have the top and bottom border to do today.  I hope to get it to my quilter this weekend!  Then I will be getting projects ready for the retreat in November.

I'm looking forward to seeing your T-shirt quilt! I saw two at the quilt show today.

And I need some help decorating this year. I hope you'll have some good ideas to share!
