I won! I won!

I love blog give-aways - and I love winning. Sandi, over at Crazy 'Bout Quilts had a give-away the other day and I was surprised to win. Check out her blog - they are painting and doing all sorts of fun stuff - and it is all quite interesting.



Buddy E wanted to help unwrap the package. He let me open the mailing envelope, he is afraid of scissors and worries he might cut his long, pretty dancing legs.

This ribbon is tied so tight . . .


Cute wrapping - another vintage fat quarter - and Buddy E just can't seem to get the ribbon undone . . .


There we go - all unwrapped - whew - that was a lot of work for a little frog . . .



These vintage fabrics make a perfect bed - they remind me of something - ummm - oh right, sheets!!!


Uh oh - another muddle - here I am - inside . . .


And here is Buddy E with his new friend, Paula Bear. They are trying to think up a project for me to make with the wonderful vintage fabrics. They both say - Thank You Sandi!!!!

The fabric does look like pillowcases or sheets of the sixties. What will you make with it? Pillowcases?
