The jacket was given to me by a friend. Thrift store find or other I'm not sure. It will not fit. I could cut it up for a tote bag or something but it is a nice jacket. It was made in India and is of rayon, cotton and acetate. It is a Large but I wear a 18-20w and it is too small for me, especially in the sleeves. While I'm dreaming up some way of choosing a winner, spread the news about my jacket. Maybe someone out there really wants it. I will be posting a quiz. Not today! Stay tuned!!

I won! I won!
Lyn over at QuiltingLion had a blog teaser and I was one of the lucky winners. Follow the links to check it out. She is currently doing a Pay it Forward if you're interested. I'm afraid I'm already commited since I signed up on Lady J's and Amy's blog! Lyn also hosted a mystery photo question. It was Johnny Weissmuller posing with all the bathing beauties. My Mom was a Weissmuller fan. He was her favorite Tarzan! Soooo..... here are photos of what I won. It's a scrumptous stash. Like a brand new box of crayolas in fabric! Thank you Lyn!!

Going Crazy IN Pieces
This is the first step in the current Crazy Quilting lesson on StitchMAP . This block will become a needle roll-up. I love piecing so once I got started I couldn't stop!! So I pieced the circle for the pincushion and needle book, too! I was not completely happy with the needle book and modified it. Then I made a second set. I was having way too much fun! Then , (yep you guessed didn't you, I made a third set!!Now I think I am ready to embellish!
