My Auction Winnings...

...were nada, zero, zip! As LindaJ predicted, all of my luggage tags were sold and I didn't win any bids!

I didn't come away empty handed though. Here is the loot from my Secret Pal. August was the next month to do an exchange and look at all my goodies! Fabric, quilty stickers, a quilty pin, some ruler grabber dots and a cute flower pincushion! I can hardly wait for the reveal on this one so I can learn to make the pincushions, too.

In August, I was also one of the winners of the Fat Quarter Show and Tell Drawing. To play, one put a fat quarter *into the pot* then every time you had a show and tell---you placed your name in a bucket. And I was one of the lucky winners! It is such a fun assortment of fat quarters!

Nancy finished this Patriotic Warm Wishes quilt for the Quilt of Valor quilt drive. Since it was my turn in the rotation, I brought it home and quilted it up. I was thinking about Trailing Vine but didn't want the quilt to look overly feminine. Popcorn won again.

I also made up a few square in a square labels for the donation quilts that are hanging around the house. I hope to get the labels sewn on and the quilts ready to ship this week.

Generous secret pal there---love that cutie pincushion you got especially!

Lucky you getting the fat quarter draw too.

Did you use that hint I gave you for the Sq n Sq? Clever idea to use them for the donation labels!

Nice haul! Love the pincushion!

What do you do with the clear fabric grippers?
