Three Happies in One Day!

The first happy came when I opened my email and found that I had won a giveaway from Laura over at Needles, Pins and Baking Tins.  She writes the most fantastic blog about quilting, knitting and baking that I have ever found.  I just know that in 20 years time, when Pokey retires, I'm going to find her in my travels across the UK and we'll spend the day gabbing and crafting!  So Laura's email said that I won the fat quarters and notions case from her giveaway which just tickled me to no end.

Just as soon as I finished reading my email and responding to it, my phone rang.  It was my mama telling me that according to the GPS (which they call "Thomas Thomas".. lol), that she and Daddy will be here just before 4 p.m. which is about three hours earlier than her previous estimation from the night prior.

The third happy comes from Laura again - she is just that fabulous.  I had left a comment on her blog thanking her for the prize and sharing about how I wanted to make a Union Jack pillow with my winnings.  Welp, Laura emailed me back with a link to a pattern/tutorial on how to make a Union Jack mini quilt!  This woman has made me tickled to death and it's barely past 10 a.m... some days are just perfect.

Now, with all this good luck, I'm going to get off here and go tackle my graduation dress - best to strike while the mojo is good... wish me luck!
