MY LUCKY DAY! THANKS BREN!

I've been busy all morning working on mini quilts. I was delighted when I opened my mail and found a note from Bren http://piecesfromme.blogspot.com/ telling me I had won her Whirl into Winter give-away.
I've been so caught up in making gifts for people who have helped me out in 2008 that some how I missed out on this give away, I was a Johnny come lately for sure! While visiting the blogs in my side bar I came across Bren's offer of a wonderful Amish table runner and coasters.

I think I've expressed in the past how much I long to be back home in Lancaster, Pa. Bren's offer just pulled me in. I've seen this pattern and colors so often on the tables of my Amish friends in Lancaster. This gift just wrapped itself around my heart and called out..take a chance.

Thank You Bren for giving me a piece of home to look at everyday.

I cut out 2 more pillow cases for Con Kerr Cancer. I used the Debbie Mum Polar Bear fabric and red for the border.

And here's a look at our weather..Snow, Snow, go away...

Holee, I checked my settings to make sure I didn't do something to block my blog from being linked to, but from what I can tell everything looks the same. The only thing I changed was my layout and background.
