Saturday's Sweet Surprise...

August marks the fifth anniversary for Sandy's Quilt Shop in Harbour Heights, Florida. It's owned by my friends, Kathy Webb and her sister, Nora Baker. (They named the shop in honor of their sister, Sandy, who succumbed to cancer a number of years ago. She always wanted to own a quilt shop.)

To celebrate their anniversary, they have been having regular giveaways at the shop during the month.
On Saturday when we got together for our weekly coffee group, Kathy and Nora told me that I won one of their drawings! Oh, my...I was shocked when I saw all the goodies in my bag...
There was the Clothworks five fat quarter assortment in children's designs. It reminded me of "snips and snails and puppy dog tails". I think they'd be perfect for a quilt for a little one.

I also received a deck of cards with crazy quilt designs on them, and two charm packs from Andover Fabrics' lines, a free pattern and information sheets from Sulky threads.
I was really tickled to see the beautiful fabrics in the fat quarter assortment from Red Rooster fabrics, and everything came in an insulated tote from Kona fabrics.

We've been abstaining from donuts on our Saturday mornings, but I can tell you that I got a whole tote-full of sweet surprises from my friends at the shop. I can't wait to make a quilt with the fabrics.

Thanks, Kathy and Nora for picking my name...and for being good friends. Thanks and thanks again.
