WOW - Wednesday

 Look What Arrived in my mail box yesterday.  This is the Erin McMorris Weekends Fat Quarter Bundle
Aren't they just yummy!
I entered the giveaway over at Cat Patches and WON!  Wow, I hardly ever win anything - so this was a Wonderful Surprise.  Thank you to Barbara Stanbro for including this package in her giveaway.
Then I got another email saying I won another prize.  WOW, I can't believe it-two wins in one week.
My second win is a 50.00 gift certificate to the Fat Quarter shop.  I ordered a Timeless Treasure bundle.  I'll share photos with you later when it arrives.  This Giveaway was put on by Sharon Pernes over at Craizee Corners.  Thank you so much Sharon for the great giveaway.

Now for what I've been doing the last few days.
I'm working on Step 5 of the Orca Bay Mystery, put on by Bonnie Hunter over at Quiltville . Here are 300 units sewn together for step 5.  There are suppose to be
350.  How did I lose count?  I thought for sure I had 350 of those half square triangles, and I thought I had 700 of those triangle wings?  How did I do this?  Anyway, I cut and sewed some more yesterday and now I have a few more then I needed.  I decided to make sure I had more because I had a few that were iffy where the wings meet at the center.  Some are probably only an 1/8th inch at best where they cross.  And so I may not be able to use them without re-cutting more triangles to fit properly.  I really tried to cut them accurate, but for some reason I still seem to have problems in this area.  Could it be that my cutting matt is warped?  LOL  It's like cutting over rolling hills.  Today I ordered a new one from Joann's while they had a 50% off coupon.  Even with shipping, it still made it cheaper then running 50 miles to the nearest Joann's and back.

I'm still working on the Heart's Desire corners.  Have three more that need flowers attached, then on to the rest of the border.  I wanted to finish up this weeks clue to Orca Bay first, so that I didn't get behind.  now that it's done, I need to work on Peaceful pathways to catch up on the last BOM that was released last week.  I'll  work on Hearts Desire in the evenings while watching tv.  That is what is so nice about hand applique work.  You can take it to a nice comfy chair and work while you relax.
