I won, I won!

Today I received a small package from the UK: I had ordered something from Crafts and Quilts of Southport. I found their name on a page of http://veryberryhandmade.co.uk : a big list of UK fabric shops. I had a look around those shops and ordered these:

32 charm squares a packet of 6 different fabrics: I love 'm!
All orange and yellow, they're called: Oranges & Lemons. Might also be a good name for a quilt too.

Now what did I win?
Well, this:  the kind people of Crafts and Quilts send me something extra:
I know it's all part of customer relations, but it's nice, isn't it? I like it.
 As for now I have to get a move on quilting this baby:
Yes, that's his name!
His parents are so proud!
I just have to finish quilting and binding it and then we can go and see him.

As for our own doggie baby:

Angus got himself a friend as of this morning. We had to separate them for they couldn't stop playing. That is once Angus knew what to do ...
But we couldn't keep them apart.

Have a great week sewing or whatever your plans are.


  1. Oh, that is a nice gift. I love it when they throw in something, especially when it's something I normally wouldn't think to buy and it turns out to be very useful. Discover lots of good things that way, and I suspect it turns out to be the the benefit of the supplier! Happy quilting!

  2. Hey Betty, what a lovely surprise! I cant wait to see what you make out of those charms and I really wanna see the finished baby quilt! I am back home now and should be commenting more frequently ;-)

  3. Yay for fre gifts :o) Love your new doggie friend too

  4. You have another dog, I am SO jealous now! lucky you to get a free gift with your parcel! Always a nice surprise!

  5. well done xx it is SUCH a great feeling to get a prize xx

  6. What will you do with those!?

  7. Super photos! And I like the look of Angus:-)

  8. I'm so far behind reading blogs :) The baby quilt looks beautiful. Though it doesn't look so from your blog picture I am wondering if it is for a grandchild perhaps?
