Lookit, lookit!

Look at this! I won something!

My Pinterest board has lots of inspiration from blogger and quilter, Rita, of Red Pepper Quilts. She puts colors and designs together to make fresh, modern, beautiful quilts, and she generously shares her know-how and processes.

She also offers the occasional give-away, but with thousands of readers, what are the chances of winning? Pretty good, I guess, because these are mine today!
Magical Lands
Saffron Craig Fabrics
Aren't they fun? I hope I come up with a good plan to use them!

But that's not all; this was also delivered to my door today!!
Inside, a present and the sweetest note!

It's so gratifying to get compliments on things I make, and to get responses to what I write here, but there's nothing as precious as friends! Friends are predisposed to like what I do! Friendship makes all sorts of things delightful about each other! I'm thinking that family and friends give life roots and shoots, depth and breadth, tickets to all the amusement parks of life!
Thank you, Cris!
It's too late at night to try to be philosophical, especially since I'm still getting used to Daylight Savings Time. Oh, I miss that hour, and I don't like waking up in the dark again!

Love the fabric and what a treat to actually win something! Thanks for sharing your wonderful talents. Shall I say I have admired your creativity since I was a teen.
