Drum Roll Please......

As Tim hobbled back from the bathroom just a few minutes ago, I asked him to stop and pick the winning number. And it is.......#10 who happens to be Carrie P. She said I didn't have to include her since this was her first time reading her blog, but I'm sure some of the others had never read either. Congratulations, Carrie!

To answer a few questions: Yes, the quilt shown is an x-block; the napkins are doubled, turned right side out and I stitched a square and inch or so inside the outside.

The quilt won a third place ribbon in it's category at the fair so I'll throw in an extra fat quarter (I had promised 2 if it won a blue). My iris wallhanging won a blue ribbon! Whoo hooo! and the wall hanging I made for Tim's office won a white (third). Brittany's quilt didn't place. I haven't seen them yet, but my daughters went to the fair and reported back to me.

Tim is doing okay, but is uncomfortable. The visiting nurses will be here this morning to help him with his therapy.

I was so excited to see that your Iris wall hanging won a blue ribbon! I'm glad you finished and entered it now... I'm sure it was special for that one to win. :)
