One more thing for today.........

Last Monday evening I was at the meeting of the Prior Lake Quilters and their 20th Anniversary party. I won a couple of prizes and I never got around to posting the picture of what I won so here it is............
I still can't believe I won three prizes that evening. And the nice thing is that you only put your name in the drawing for the items you want. My odds of winning were good on the purse kit with pattern (on the left) and the ziploc filled bag of scraps (on the right) as there weren't many names in the drawing bags for these items. However, there were lots of names in the bag for the Loon basket you see in the photo so I was very lucky to win that!! The Loon is the state bird of Minnesota so I thought the basket was really cool. I love Mary E. books and the candle that's in the basket smells so good!
I have some plans for the pile of scraps but right now that idea is still just "a thought". I also have plans for the Salsa fabric in the Loon basket. Again, it's just "a thought". I have plenty of projects in my "to do" pile and don't need to add any more. I am currently working on blocks in my Seasons BOM and tracing the Snowmen designs so I can do them in Redwork. Won't be long before cool weather comes to Minnesota so I'll have plenty of projects to keep me busy when the snow falls! No danger of that anytime soon, though. And thank goodness for that, as the Minnesota State Fair opens this Thursday for twelve days of fun in the sun!! Not sure if we will go or not. I'm still not quite "up to par" with my back pain issues so I am thinking we might not get there this year. There will be thousands who will be attending so we won't be missed. :-)
Later friends........

Very nice prizes. I'm sorry your back will cause you to miss the State Fair, but let's hope you are able to go next time.
