 Yesterday's class was a lot of fun and my students were great. When I got
home, there was a package waiting for me from Kathy Schmitz (the designer
of those "Sweet Stitches" kits I've been working on lately), and I was excited!
 I knew what was inside. I had entered and won Kathy's giveaway for her
newest fabric line for Moda called "Piecemakers". I had seen this line in
Moda's catalog a couple of weeks ago and told Kathy and Nora at Sandy's
Quilt Shop that I really loved it. Imagine my delight when Kathy Schmitz
contacted me to tell me that my name was one of those drawn to win some
of her preview assortments! I was anxious to see what she'd chosen for me.

When I opened the box, I found a layer cake and a jelly roll of this fabulous
line. Even Handsome was impressed. I did a happy dance all over our kitchen!!
 I also received one of Kathy's quilt patterns..."Acorns to Oaks" and one
of her pieces of art (a heart-in-hand and tomato pincushion) mounted into a
pendant for a necklace. I'm actually going to wear that to teach today's class.

As soon as I get home today, I'll be writing a "thank you" note for Kathy's
generosity. Her new line won't be available in shops until January, so I'll
have between now and then to add to a little yardage to this assortment. 
I can't wait to sew it into something truly wonderful. If you'd like to visit 
Kathy's website, here is the link. I'm sure you'll have fun visiting and 
checking out what's next from her creative and imaginative mind.

I know. I'm such a Lucky Girl!! I'll be back tomorrow. Gotta get to class!
