Today was FULL of TONS of good news. First off, as I was checking out all of the blogs that I stalk this morning, I noticed that over at Maureen Cracknell Handmade, she had posted a winner to the Intrepid Thread Giveaway and it was ME!! I just about died! THANK YOU, MAUREEN AND INTREPID THREAD for the AWESOME fat quarter bundle that Julie put together for the QuiltCon Block Challenge.
Secondly, my sweet sister came by for a visit and to pick out the backing for the quilt that I am making for her bedroom. I forgot to take a shot of it, but I should be sewing quilting it on Thursday... I hope... so you can see it then. Today I finished cutting out the cream fabric and sewed the blocks...

|A neat pile of blocks that want to be pressed..|
|Pretty pressed blocks... a little blurry, sorry :(|
Lastly, I went over to my friend, Suzy's house and she taught me how to knit. She taught me continental style and I DID IT!!! I have tried to learn to knit so many times, but the yarn direction always made my crazy and I couldn't do it without someone sitting right next to me :( Here is my first attempt...
Have a GREAT middle of the night and a pleasant tomorrow.... wait, is that from SNL?
