My Lucky Week

I was a winner on two fronts this week.   Firstly my name was drawn as the winner of OPAM for February month which Kris from Tag Along Teddies hosts each month.   My  prize of one of Kris'  lovely designs landed in my in-box the other day.

I have already mentally chosen the fabrics which will hopefully compliment the design.

My second win was an envelope which arrived in the mail today all the way from WA from the very generous Maria from Life on the block blog who saw my very small  collection of aqua scraps and sent me this lovely variety of aqua fabrics.     Once these are made up I will have the prettiest aqua log cabin blocks.

During the week I did manage to sew  the Velcro tabs on  twenty bibs.   This is what a stack of 20 bibs looks like.

I mentioned in an earlier post that my sewing partners and I had reached our goal of 60 size 6 dresses  and they can be seen all lined up below.    The 35 library bags in front of the dresses were also made by me.

Back soon and in the meantime

Happy sewing all

Well, who's the lucky girl? I just love the little bag from 'Tagalong Teddies' - Congratulations! I will wait with baited breath to see what you come up with when creating something from the aqua fabrics. You certainly have been extremely busy.
