Really great days

While I don't have any sewing progress to show, its been a great few days!

Friday was the first day that the sun came out since...well, I'm not sure when. Park Ranger Boyfriend came to visit this weekend and we were lazy bums all weekend. Lots of watching Community, eating everything (CRAB RAVIOLI!!!), and general shenanigans.

Saturday morning I found out that I won the $50 gift certificate to The Quilting Lodge via the giveaway at SewBittersweet Designs! I was in SHOCK! And very excited! I picked out these fabrics from the Botanica collection from Timeless Treasures (plus a little bit of the olive green marble) as my "prize":

Thank you to Vicki at The Quilting Lodge for sponsoring this giveaway!

I got the email today that I am one of the five finalists for the "Bed Quilt" category for the Blogger's Quilt Festival! I was in even more shock! So thanks to EVERYONE for voting for me during the nomination round! And now if you want to vote my quilt all the way to the top (of the bed quilt category, that is) go here and vote for your favorite in each category!

Hopefully I'll have some actual sewing progress later in the week!
