The Basket Comes and so does Hubby

Last week I took my neighbor Patty to a quilt show, her first. She does a lot of different hand work but not much sewing. They had these 4-5 baskets stuffed with giveaways from companies raffling $1 ea. for a yard of tickets for $5. They even had people there to fill them out for you.
Anyway, who should win one but Patty. This is her on the right and the lady from the guild who happens to work at a doctors office in Boonsboro brought it down for her. So on Monday Morning she said she would have it and we went down. WOW what a basket. AND that big blue bag full of books.
Here again I uploaded two of the same picture. so you have to excuse me. Maybe you will see something different in the second one.
This is all of it spread out on her table
This is looking into the basket , An envelope with a $20 gift certificate towards long arm quilting., That one bundle I think was patterns
A roll of pattern for machine quilting, I got that. Lots of fabric. Books, did you say books. All kinds. There was one Thimbleberry book which I didn't think I had and wanted it. But then when I looked at home I did have it . Patty has a friend that likes TB also. I think she is still looking through them. This is the way that the table looked after we got though getting our hands in it. I did come home with quite a bundle
this is it. two different sizes of Thangles., some patterns, a couple books and a box of variegated threads by Coats and Clark and a couple spools of white Mottler thread and a spools of brown variegated Essential thread. The gals on the Juki group talk about it.The best thing though which you might be able to see if you enlarge the picture is a roll of 8 fat quarters in the prettiest bright color wheel colors and hands dyed from India. Several other rather large pieces of plain colors, blues and greens. Be good for setting children's blocks together. All in all it was a fun afternoon and great fun. Maybe have converted a quilter.
Guess I better mention that Hubby is home and in bed now asleep. Don't know for how long as he doesn't sleep that well. My Daughter came up this afternoon and boy did she get a tan on her Cruise last week She will be here for a couple days. At least while I go to town to get my hair done and a little shopping. Then Thurs.. A..M while I go to my Physical Therapy. Then on Friday our son is suppose to arrive for a week. So a nice busy week. But back to cooking.
Also have the Double Delight all sewn together. Just need to trim and add the border. Thanks for stopping. .

What a grand prize for your friend- It is a lovely way to start quilting- And what a grand bag of books too.
How nice for you and hubby to be together again.
I hope your daughter had a fabulous trip to the Bahamas. Will she go back to her old school?
Good for you to continue to get lots of quilting done.
I look forward to seeing your finished Double Delight.
Time for me to press the Star blocks. They are ready to sew together.
Have a good week with your family.

Sounds like you and your friend had a wonderful day, and such a lot of neat things to look through.
I hope your DH does well and that you enjoy visiting with your children. I'm sure that they will be a help getting your husband settled in and hopefully giving you a break at times.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.

You may probably be very interested to know how one can manage to receive high yields on investments.
There is no initial capital needed.
You may commense earning with a sum that usually goes
on daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one project for several years,
and I'm ready to share my secrets at my blog.

Please visit blog and send me private message to get the info.

P.S. I earn 1000-2000 per day now.
