What a Great Week!

This has been a great week at Troublesome Creek Quilts!  Last Saturday, I came home to find a wonderful package from Dee at Mike and Gabby.   She's been having a series of giveaways, and I was a lucky winner.   Look what was in my package - wonderful spring fabrics!
I just love these pretty Moda fabrics.  The red rickrack will make a wonderful binding.  These are some fabrics I didn't already have in my stash, so I will enjoy using them, and they brought a welcome spot of color to dreary Wisconsin.  I can't wait to start something with them.  Thanks for your generosity, Dee!

And then on Wednesday, I came home to find a package from Buttermilk Basin - I was a winner in her giveaway, too!  This box contained some fantastic goodies...
The pink stripe is a kitchen towel, with a pattern and wool and floss to put the rabbit on it, and some great green rickrack to finish it with.  And this yummy bundle of wools, an Easter pattern, and even a chocolate rabbit.  I was already a big fan of Buttermilk Basin; I love her wool and stitchery patterns and have made quite a few of them over the years.  Thanks, Staci - I'm looking forward to making some fun Easter things, but I'd better get going, hadn't I?  I think it's only about 3 weeks until Easter.

I've been working on my March UFOs, but don't have a lot of new progress to show yet.  Hopefully I'll have a mid-month update.

So that's my week - it was a good one!
