A couple of 'Firsts' and some 'progress'

This is my first ever win on a give-away, which also happens to be my first ever parcel from America!!

A set of Perfect Circles and a Fat Quarter of Fabric

Thanks to Cori from 'Creativity Amongst Chaos'.  If you haven't visited Cori before it is worth a trip - she has the cutest designs and works with lovely happy colours......  Pop in over HERE and tell her I say hi .....  I love the turquoise and orange in the fabric..... Thanks Cori.

And this was my first ever outing to the ballet....

A special friend bought tickets and took me out for a treat to the Nutcracker Suite performed by the Imperial Russian Ballet company.
A magical evening and a special treat

Such a lot of first ever happiness
but I did manage to make a little bit of progress

I have cut up my Jelly Roll  for the Quiltalong hosted by Fat Quarterly, so now I am  ready to start pieceing next week

and I have done some stitching on my Quilt as You Go UFO that I am determined to do for Finishing Stitches hosted by Joy's Quilts.  Joy does some lovely stitching and has some great stories - pop on over HERE and join us if you need some motivation to get those blocks and quilt projects finished!

In the meantime, I have some practicing to do....

Have a wonderful weekend

Congrats on your win and I LOVE the ballet! My daughter Ebony used to do ballet and I have been to a few shows. It is so beautiful. Nothing beats going to a lie show at the theatre be it ballet or a play!
Love the quilt as you go you're working on. The colours look great. I've never done one with black and white before but I have a black and white with pink fabric panel of little ladies in Paris I'm collecting fabrics for to make up. After seeing yours I'm hanging to get started now...need to finish a few more things first lol

That jelly roll has some lovely colours in it.

Congrats on your win, you lucky thing! Your black and white quilt is great, good luck with the jelly roll QAL, those fabric colours are lovely.

Congratulations on your win and the ballet looks so interesting , I have never attended a ballet either . I must say I am tempted to do the QAL but I have so much already going on I better control myself ;-0 I am starting a mystery quilt this month with my quilt guild and also a runner workshop which I just cut all the fabrics for so I think maybe I best look the other way ;-)

Congrats on your first win. I am sure you will have many more. How fun to go to the ballet.
Your wall hanging made with Jenny's pattern is so pretty. Well done.
Thanks for coming by my blog and leaving a kind comment about the table my husband made.
