I'm Back

It has been awhile since I last posted but seems like yesterday. Time sure gets away from you.

Last time I posted was after the shop hop. DH and I finished the hop on Saturday on our way to Myrtle Beach. We stayed in a really nice condo that was about a mile from the beach. The weather was sunny and in the 80's everyday except one.

The day it rained we drove to a couple quilt shops. It is very interesting the quilts and fabric there compared to here. We are talking about going down for a month this winter and if we do I know I will enjoy visiting their shops.

We got home late Sunday night. All was well with the dogs and house. My daughter and grandkids took very good care of everything.

My LQS called and said I won 2 prizes on the shop hop. That made me very happy. One shop had a jar of candy corn and you had to guess how many were in the jar.

I guessed 356 and there were 357. I just grabbed a number. Did not even look at the jar. I got the jar, candy and a $25.00 gift certificate. That was nice. DH went out and got some peanuts.

I also won a chicken pattern and 5 batik fat quarters from another shop. It was soooo much fun to win something. My GF won something too but didn't like it very much.

The rest of the week I made my doll quilt for the swap on About.com. It has to be mailed by October 31. I did not want to be late because I am the hostess and that wouldn't look very good. It is almost done. I will post a picture tomorrow.
