I won a very nice doorprize given by Viking Says Sew n'Quilt in Greenville, SC and I want to say again THANK YOU! The prize included a sewing box that is just perfect for my applique threads and notions, a pattern, chalk marker, bobbin holder, jelly roll, machine needles, magnet pin holder, mettler silk finish thread and a spray bottle of Mary Ellen's Best Press! What a great prize. Next time I am anywhere near Greenville, I will definitely be checking out this shop and suggest you do the same.
And of course, with all those vendors I just had to do a little shopping. I mostly hit the YLI booth, which is here in Rock Hill, and purchased machine quilting thread to use on my Christmas Beauty quilt. I also purchased a large spool of their new gold metallic thread which is heavier than what has been available in the past. From another vendor I purchased an Add a Quarter and an Add an Eighth rulers. The Add a Quarter is pink! Had not seen the pink ones before. The Add a Eighth is perfect for working with paper piecing the Dear Jane Blocks. Also some silk YLI thread that will be making its way to Norway soon!
All in all a very fun day! When I got home, my hubby had prepared a big pot of vegetable beef soup, I made the cornbread and all the kids, except Ellen, and grandkids were here to have a family supper. I was really pooped by the end of the day and was in bed by 8:00 and slept right through to this morning.
Happy Sunday to you all!
