So exciting!  On Monday, when I got back from my brother's wedding in Idaho, my husband brought in a package with the mail.  And for once it was addressed to me!  I actually won a giveaway the other day over at Indigo Threads!  I know.  I can still hardly believe it after all the hundreds of giveaways I've tried for!
Looky, looky, I won!!
Well, maybe not hundreds because I won't follow just to win or jump through a bunch of hoops, and I only try for the ones that I really want or think I could use.  Score!  I won 'Back to Charm School: More Fun Quilts From Country Threads' and Sharon, who is super sweet and generous, also sent me a charm square pack of fabric in some of my favorite colors!  Just because she's really nice that way.  You would know that if you ever went to her blog.*wink
I adore this little quilt, esp. with the cherry red print.
I've been playing around with the idea of making a new table runner for my china hutch for about 2 yrs. now, but other projects always seem to get in the way.  I'm thinking that this book along with that charm square pack will maybe be just the jump start I need!  (The china hutch would most definitely thank me since I made the one that currently graces it about 10 or 12 yrs. ago.....)
I. Am. In. Love. even though YIKES! it requires hand stitching!
I also have a fondness for Country Threads books as they were one of the first applique books I ever bought.  You have to understand that I didn't know how to do any applique whatsoever at that time.  It was sent to me accidentally through a quilting book club and once I opened the book up and looked through it, I was sunk.  There was no returning the book and then I had to justify the money I spent on it!

So, again, THANK YOU SHARON!!  In case you couldn't tell, I'm simply thrilled about this giveaway!
