They say winners are grinners and I'm surely that! 

I was lucky to win Ann Hermes Giveaway and my prize has arrived! The Primitive Quilts magazine features a pattern by the wonderfully talented Ann. I also received a beautiful postcard and one of Ann's famous mini quilt decorations.

Look at all those lovely pinwheels!  As it happens I need a new mat for my coffee table and I have some left over half square triangles from my Scrap Baskets quilt.

Thank you so much Ann! 

I wish I could say that during my prolonged absence from blogging that I have been sewing with feverish enthusiasm.

Sadly no...Spring has arrived with a vengeance and with no rain for nearly two months hay fever  and asthma have been my constant companions.  Who needs enemies with friends like those?!

Never fear I shall be making a return to the sewing room soon.
