"Stars Across the Thumb" Shop Hop 2010

I had fun on a shop hop this weekend.  Check out all my goodies.  I was a good girl and did not over spend or buy.  I went with my mom, good friend, and her mom-in-law.  We had a good time.  We were gone for a total of 10 hours.  

When I returned home and finally sat down to rest I realized I had not looked at my list at our last shop and I forgot to get some things I really needed.  Never fear, I went back Saturday morning and picked them up.  Another visit to the quilt shop is a good thing!

Saturday I got two more boxes done.  One for me and one for a silent Auction.  I almost have one more done for the silent auction.  I have two more frogs I am working on too.

Then....I was checking my email when I found I had one from Pat Sloan telling me I won a set of Aurifl thread!  I was so excited I started yelling!  My children sure were looking at me funny and wondered what was wrong.  I told them I was excited because I won!  Then they wanted to know what I won.  Thread I told them!  They just did not get my excitement.  Then... I went to Pat's blog and she had listed my blog!  I was yelling again.  My children think I am weird!  Thanks,Pat, I can't wait to get the thread.  I wonder how much I will yell when I have the thread in my hand.

  1. I found your blog through Pat Sloan and became a follower. I too love pink. DH doesn't care much for it (we are opposites)so I manage to use it in quilts and embroidery a lot. You have a great talent and are using it well. The thread was a blessing I know you will use it wisely.

  2. Congratulations on winning Pat's thread :) I follow Pat & came on over to say 'hi'. Your blog is really nice, so is your finished projects!
    The Raccoon in your mailbox is too funny!
