What a winner-- and a GIVE AWay!!!

Despite a trip to the dentist and a large filling that made me feel sorry for myself -- I was cheered up when I received an email to say that I had won a Cratsy class courtesy of  Katie  At Swim, Bike,Quilt.!!!!

She has just launched her yearly drive for quilts for children and has some great prizes to win. I am going to donate  disappearing 9 patch I have just made and just have to finish binding It. You can see her post on her blog.

I already have some crafty classes which I have dipped in and out of but to be given the chance to choose a new one for free!!!  Well I just couldn't make up my mind which one to have - particularly as I get really tempted by the art quilt ones BUT I decided to go for a more traditional class and decided on Quilting Quickly II by Jenny Doan.

  I have watched a lot of her U Tube videos but now I can watch a range of classes which showcase her approach using ready cuts.  I have already watched her class on Drunkards Path and I am itching to start one!

As I have been lucky this week I thought I would have a Give Away!!! BUT it it is only for UK followers as it is  for the Festival of Quilts at Birmingham on the 8th - 11th-August.  I have two spare tickets for any day at the festival so if you can get there just leave a comment telling me what would be the highlight of the show for you.  I will make the  draw on Friday 2 nd August and post them to the winner by first class post.

As we have continued to have such HOT weather I have been machine embroidering this week as well as doing some crocheting.   I made this sweet little birth sampler from a pattern at Kwiwi Kreations for my good friend's daughter who has had her second baby  and also the little boots which
 she loved so much for her first baby.

 I have also made a couple of XMas items but these are for the Santa Sack Swap so I can't show them just yet.

Off on a short break next week to the coast so hope the weather stays warm and will be taking my crocheting and hexis projects with me.
