I can't believe it....

but its true! The UPS guy just dropped it off - I won a FQ Bundle of the new Ruby line by Bonnie & Camille ... Oh my goodness! I was stunned when I got an email from Stephanie at I had left a comment on the Jolly Jabber blog the other day and my comment was the one chosen. Isn't this beauuuuuuutiful???

(Wow that is one BIG picture -- I took if from FQS site and I don't know how to get it smaller - sorry!)

I have never treated myself to a FQ Bundle but I definitely will in the future. I love this fabric and I know I will want to make a large queen size quilt from it. I just need to pick the right pattern. Any suggestions? According to FQS,this line won't be released till October. That will give me plenty of time to decide on a border fabric - LOL! I love FQS and not just because I won this giveaway. They are one of my favorite places to shop. Always the latest stuff and fast fast delivery. Thank you, thank you, thank you FatQuarterShop from the bottom of my fabric covered heart!

And since the sun is out.... pictures of my newest finished pair of socks.

This is the Pyroclastic pattern done in Fiber Optic Kashmir in the Tequila Sunrise colorway.

I will definitely knit this pattern again and I definitely need more of this yarn. It is so squooshy and soft and the stitch definition is wonderful.

So to revel in the sunny day I am blessed with, I am going to sit out on my screen porch and do a little cross stitching. I just picked up the new Mystery Sampler by Brenda Gervais at With Thy Needle from my LNS, Keepsakes. I got the package with the linen and the floss and I can't wait to put some stitches in this on.

Hope you are having a great day and have a wonderful weekend ahead of you.
Happy stitching-
carol fun


  1. Very lucky you on your win. I'm really enjoying all of the handmade socks. They must be cozy especially since it hasn't gotten warm in Ohio yet!
