Another nice weekend

Karen and I got together Saturday for some fabric shopping and lunch. Karen has kids, I have cats, we have fun trading stories about them, work and life in general. We are two lucky people...

...really, we are lucky. One quilt shop we stopped at was having a holiday open house and I won a door prize raffle.

I got to pick a gift bag of my choice. I didn't open it until after we left the shop. The bag was heavy and I knew it had a ruler in it but I was so surprised on opening it to find a Henry Glass & Co fat quarter bundle of Summertime! Love the fabrics! The ruler is a template ruler to make corner to corner curve squares. I'm not much on curved piecing but I think I'll have to try out this ruler, looks like it would be interesting to use.

The next shop we went to was having an open house also. And had door prizes too. Yup, you guessed right, Karen won! A nice gift certificate which she promptly spent.

Fabric shopping, prizes and friends, nothing could be better.

Wow! What a lucky win that was!

I like the candle mat below and the purse your mom made.

Winning is always a great way to cap off fun with friends. Congrats on the lovely fabric bundle. I have not heard of that ruler but anything to help with curves is a good idea.
