Wonderful Wednesday - Back to reality and To the moon

Welcome to this week's edition of Wonderful Wednesday!!  A quick look at last weekend.

Back to reality and to the moon!

What's with the title of this post, Joyful???


Mr. Basket and I went on a Spa Getaway over the weekend (to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary.)  Insert fancy hotel, relaxing couples massage, and one of the most expensive dinners we've ever had here.  I always find it difficult to return home after being away.  This weekend was no exception!

Thus, back to reality.

Grandover Resort:

Still a happy couple... after all these years:

Walking the trails:

Enjoying the grounds:

A (vaguely) heart-shaped omelette upon our return home:

To the moon???

Or make that over the moon!!

Why, Joyful??


Sarah over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict posted the RESULTS for this year's Hand 2 Help challenge.

I was one of 150 quilters to participate.  Those 150 quilters are donating 416 quilts around the globe.  Kudos to Sarah for spurring us on to such great success for her annual charity quilt drive!!

Thanks to all of the wonderful sponsors of the event...

Everyone's a winner!!

My prize is quilt batting from:

Ifu you're anything like me, you're already familiar with The Warm Company, creator of Warm & Natural batting.  The Warm Company has sent us several wonderful quilt batts to be given away as prizes!
Joy M., Melissa G., Beryl R., Vicki S., Kim A.

Thank you, Sarah AND thank you to The Warm Company!!  Goodness knows a quilter ALWAYS needs more batting.  :o))

Until next time...
Lovin' (the quilt) life!!!
