Lootful update

/ Sunday 18 April 2010 /
Spell-check says "lootful" is not a word.  But it should be!
I am not normally a lucky person, in the win-the-lottery, doorprize or giveaway sense.  In the good health, family and career success sense, I have been extraordinarily lucky, and, please G-d, may it continue!  However, in the last week or so, I've also been lucky in loot.  Let me show you!
From Thelma
First, I won this book from the ever-generous Thelma.  I've always been interested in French Braid quilts.  There are some gorgeous ones in here, and they don't look too hard to make.  Thank you, Thelma!
From Sew Mama Sew
Second, you probably know that it's Quilt Month on Sew Mama Sew.  I won this book from them.  Lots to read about and learn in here!
From SewCalGal
And look at these cute greeting cards!  They were made by SewCalGal - she liked the photo of Darla that appeared in this post, and offered to make them up for me, out of the blue.  What a great (sewcal)gal!  I was so touched to receive them!
Finally, I have been getting completed blocks returned from the Modern Tradition Quilt Bee.  These are so fabulous, each one unique - my socks are well and truly knocked off - that they deserve a post of their own.  Once they're all in, I'll do that thing.
ORBC spring swap loot - outgoing
And now for the outgoing portion of this lootful post. I'm just about to send off my package to my mystery partner in the Old Red Barn Co. spring swap.   Here's a look at the secret ingredients.  Because I'm feeling flush after my Quilthome sale order of AMH voiles came in, I'm parting with four of the FQs I've hoarded.  I hope my partner enjoys them, along with the other little goodies I've thrown in.
I'm off to Nashville in a few days - going to the annual meeting of the Council for Exceptional Children. If anyone knows any good LQS that I should visit in the Nashville area, please let me know!

Has your daughter returned home yet? It must be difficult on all those who are traveling, and their families, right now.

Do you know that you'll be only 135 miles from the biggest, best Quilt Show in the World...or at least in these parts in Paducah, KY? Plus the National Quilt Museum is there!

So glad you're happy with the book.

Congratulations on all the goodies.

Lucky you. Fun to see someone "you know" win! Enjoy.

Oh what showers of blessing came your way this week! Truly love hearing about how we are given good gifts through others generosity!

And we in turn, share the spirit of giving. You are an inspiration!
