A Freebie?

Wow! I just got word from Kathie over at Inspired By Antique Quilts that I won her giveaway for a mini tumbler kit, Yippee!!!
Thank you so very much, Kathie!

Remember my 4 FQ's?

My four FQ's looked lonely for the giveaway here on August 1st, so I'm adding this  Mettler Silk Finish Cotton Thread to the FQ's.

This thread is special. The $2.69 value of the thread was free to me if I placed an order with an online fabric house. So the free thread only cost me $46.70, LOL! I'm such a sucker for any excuse to buy pretty fabrics.
Enjoy. It's made in Spain and is a 50 weight with 164 yards on the spool in a very pretty buttercream color.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, I sewed my Jacob's Ladders blocks into 5 of the 6 rows needed for my quilt. Then I ran out of steam, so I'm having my afternoon home-made iced coffee in the Chocolate Cappuccino flavor. If this perks me up, (pun intended) maybe I'll mosey back on down cellar to my Quilt Cave to do the last joining of blocks into rows.

That cutting table of mine sure is a disaster area, isn't it? I'm cutting on one sixth the space of the table due to the stacks of fabrics and projects left out on the table. It's a mess and I love it. I know where everything is.

Farm news is that Matthew, my unofficially adopted son who lives with us, has been working on his little car for a month. Finally, all the brakes work perfectly, including the emergency brake!!!! YEAY!

Good for you, Matthew! Matthew did all his own work with very little help from Felix. They both spent hours sourcing parts online and watching mechanical training videos, but Matthew did the work. We couldn't be prouder of him!

Happy sewing!

Well I didn't think the fqs looked lonely, but another friend just makes the party happier, right? Congrats to your unofficial adopted son on his accomplishment.
