I'm a winner and a finisher!


One of our beautiful granddaughters is on her high school dance team and they performed extremely well at a competition yesterday.  As a fundraiser there were many wonderful raffle baskets that one could win.  I put in several tickets on a loaded Trader Joe's basket and lo and behold, I was the winner!!  I am thrilled with my winnings!
 After coming home from the dance competition, I finished hand sewing the black binding on this quilt that I have depicted before when it was in the WIP stage.  I'm liking this one a lot!
