Thank you Cara

I am a winner! I got a message saying that I won  a copy of  Asian Fabric Magazine! I actually haven't seen this magazine before, so I am excited to have a look.  (I don't know which issue I have won, but they all look amazing!)

More important is the reason for the give away! This was from Cara Quilts and her posting : Basic Charity Challenge . There are so many people that don't have even the basic needs, and we are so fortunate. Cara's challenge was to drop off a donation at the nearest shelter for abused women/children or the homeless. Although it is a sad thing, I think we all have one of these near by. Even though the challenge is finished, it is a good reminder that we can help by small acts of kindness. Pick up some extra shampoo or toothpaste each week with your groceries, and soon you will have a bag of goodies to deliver. 


  1. Congratulations on you win - you are going to love it. Excellent reminder, too. One of the things I like about my quilt guild - they are a yr. long supplier of personal goods as well as quilts to local women's centers.

  2. Congratulations! I found out this morning that I won a dress from Shabby Apple! Who knew that we would win fun stuff when we started blogging?

    As for me quilting? Hahaha! I do love color, so I think all those bright colors on the wooden spools are very pretty. It is about the size of an end table. I'm thinking a small lamp and maybe a cloche filled with some of those beautiful buttons?


Please leave a comment or just say hello....It's nice to know I am not talking to myself!
