Welcome to another edition of Wonderful Wednesday!! Today I'm here to share the contents of the TWO Guild prizes that I won in recent months. I mentioned them and showed a photo, but you never got to see the nitty gritty of the contents.
Last month, I won the Bernina World of Sewing door prize:
Here's a better look at the contents:
Beautiful cork and coordinating fabrics...
... Along with a cork tassel to complete a fun project:
The accompanying gift certificate required a shopping trip...
... Which I finally braved after last week's Quilt Bee meeting:
That gift certificate went toward the purchase of the two items in the foreground of the photo below:
Yay! Fancy new snips to try a different design and an adjustable "hump jumper" which turned out to be even better than the one that I had originally hoped to purchase.
Thank you to Sona @ Bernina World of Sewing for your support of Durham Orange Quilt Guild! It was a pleasure to be back in your beautiful store. The staff couldn't have been any more helpful and made for a pleasant shopping experience.
That was wonderful and oh-SEW-good, but back at the December Guild meeting...
I won the Membership Basket from among the members who prepaid their 2021 dues:While I shared the contents of the basket with LeeAnn @ Not Afraid of Color shortly after my win, I never got around to showing YOU...
Let's have a little explore, shall we??? In the basket, I found the following items...
A selection of quilt magazines:
Some journals and a variety of storage containers:
A few notions, including the pack of needles that I made use of recently when I managed to bend the one in my "piecing" machine:
Several yards of batiks on cardboard "mini bolts" for easy storage:
Pins, a magnetic pin holder, and a fun selection of precut fabrics, along with some fancy thread and a bottle of scent-free Best Press:
Sorry this is taking SEW long, but the basket was chock full of sewing items that I thought you might want see...
... Like a collection of Judy Niemeyer paper piecing patterns:
Spooky Halloween fun with a pattern, buttons, thread...
... And a darling little spider quilt hanger, too:
Sticky stuff that I've already used in a number of projects:
Templates, rulers, a needle holder, a notions holder, and (lucky me!) a replacement for my favorite seam ripper which has been getting a workout lately:
A selection of embellishments...
... Along with Cable Cuffs, a pack of quilt greeting cards, and of course the basket, which I plan to use for storing MORE fabric scraps:
Thank you to Ella K. for putting together such a fabulous prize basket. It was filled with a wonderful selection of usable quilting items! I'm enjoying pulling out something new with each project that needs "a little something", whether that means some sticky stuff to hold down an applique for stitching, an errant line of quilting that needs removing with a sharp new seam ripper, or if I want a challenging new project to stretch my skills as a quilt maker, it's ALL in the basket!!
Until next time...
