A Little Of This & A Lot Of That

this is the "a little of this" part of this post
not little in size of meaning but little as in a small part of this post
*******
i WON again!!!!
i could not believe it when i got the email from Mary Hartmann Bowden telling me that i was the winner of EQ7 that was givin away on her blog http://mequilter.blogspot.com/

above is the note that came along with the software & below is the actual software
i was like a giddy little school girl when i found out i won EQ it has been on my wish list for sometime now
*******
because of my crazy schedule these past few weeks i just got it loaded on the laptop yesterday & have plans to spend sometime with it over the 3 day weekend
*******
a HUGE THANK YOU to Mary Hartmann Bowden for hosting the giveaway & to The Electric Quilt Company for doing the giveaway
now for the "a lot of that" part of this post

6. make a new book bag for my niece for her birthday
7. work on my 25 mini pinwheels for my pinwheel sampler quilt along quilt
and many other misc projects to start or work on
*******
now for the major "A LOT OF THAT"
about a month and 1/2 ago i made a large fabric purchase - large for me - i bought yardage of the whole Make Life line & i didn't even feel bad about it, but i made a deal with myself
fabric purchases would be kept to a minimum between then and my annual trip to Sisters
needless to say that did not last long
*******
i went to Spokane this week for meetings and a doc apt and came home with this


2 charm packs, a jelly roll and some yardage - no idea what i am going to do with it but i love it

poked some buttons on my laptop and the yardage above showed up at my house this week
Piece N Quilt was having a sale - what can i say? and some of it is Make Life...

these 2 came from my Spokane trip - plans to make a bag with them

this was in the clearance hall - pj pants

this came from JoAnns - skirt
*******
So during these past few weeks there has been a little winning going on and a LOT of projects to do and purchases made
*******
i hope you all enjoy the long weekend and check back next week to see what i got done on my list of to dos.......
Oh & for anyone else who is a Dave Matthews Band fan
the tour started tonight in Hartford, CT

Hi Ann,
I'm so glad you recieved your copy of EQ7, mine came also. I have done some playing in it but not much, too busy with work. Enjoy and have fun sewing this long weekend, you look like you will be busy.
