Lucky days

 We just got in from a round trip to Moncton (about 2 1/2 hrs one way) to get our car fixed. Despite an iffy weather forecast the roads were good both ways. Once we got within an hour of Bathurst the landscape turned white but the roads were clear.
Last night was our guild Christmas dinner and a lucky night for me. Some of the members were ready to ban me from the draws though. First there was a draw for this lovely Christmas pillow made and donated by a friend of mine. I was so excited when my numbers matched. Then on the very next draw I won again, a bag of matching Christmas fabric.
And just the day before I got an email form The Red Door Studio announcing that I had won her draw for this new book by Janet Clare.


It's been a busy couple of days . All that I have to show is the machine quilting that I got started on my baby quilt.
I was pleasantly surprised by the design taht resulted on the back. It's actually a little deeper yellow. I had trouble getting a picture that showed the stitching. I'm about 3/4 finished, so if it's a snow day tomorrow as they're forecasting I may get it done.

I'm linking to WIP Wednesday.
