It has only taken 3 years! ......Plus a secret to tell.

That’s not long is it? 3 years?

YES!!!!!

Well I was in a Row by Row swap on the Craft Forum back in 2008 and got all the completed rows from those who were in the swap and I sent off rows to those in exchange. It was such a thrill getting the rows in the mail and now I have finally put them all together with sashing in between the rows and a border all the way around.

The next step is to quilt it and then of course bind it. I am really pleased with it and my darling hubby loves it! So I am going to surprise him with it as his very own quilt. He doesn't read my blog so it will stay a surprise. *grin*
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My secret……..Have you been excited lately?
I hope you have and well I have…I was contacted by Accuquilt this morning to tell me they are giving me a Go! Baby Fabric Cutter and it’s now on its way to my doorstep for me to play with!! Soooo excited about this *big toothy smile* and I can hardly wait for it to get here to play with it and soon after I will have one to give away too.
Stay tuned for this as I know you would love to win one.
I am doing the happy dance here!


Thank you Accuquilt…can hardly wait to play.
Have a great day everyone
Hugs to all……
