Bunting and 2 more things...

At our guild sew-in last Saturday, which was also the Fraser Valley Modern Quilt Guild's second anniversary, we had a bunting swap.  I got to take home this fabulous bunting made by the fabulous Amy Dame with some of Cynthia's  Kona Modern Quilts fabric.  I hung it up so I can look at it when I use my iron. Nice!  On a side note, look how dry our back lawn is?  We need some rain.  The Wet Coast is not so wet right now!

I do love to win things.  I was tickled beyond all that is tickled to win this lovely bundle of prints including some Kaffe Fasset and Martha Negley prints.  Woo hoo!   Lysa donated the fabric!  Thank you, Lysa!

And then my little Mendocino needlebook which is now in the hands of my swap partner for the Modern Scrappy Bits Swap.  I entered it into the linky for the My Precious Quilt Along.  And.... drumroll.... I won a yard of Heather Ross Yellow Dog Fabric!  Yahoo!!!!  I was very excited about this.  Very exciting.  I cannot wait for the fabric to arrive in the mail.  Happy dance in action!

So that is my story.  School is going well.  Happy children, happy parents, happy teachers equals happy principal.  Have a super Tuesday!
