My MAJOR Prize Arrived!!

One of my favorite Christmas movies is "The Christmas Story". In the story, the Dad gets a "major prize" which is a lamp with the base in the shape of a woman's leg.  The shade is her skirt.  He loves this since it is a "major prize" that he won, although his wife thinks it is a bit risque, and is happy when it breaks.

Well my "major prize" arrived today.  I won a contest sponsored by Rebecca at Ruby Blue Quilts in which I submitted a name for her longarm machine---Elvis.  She choose it and the prize I chose was a copy of her latest book, "Seems like Scrappy".  I received it today and have just barely looked through it.  I am about to get myself a "blue label" also known as Pepsi, and really give it a "once over".  Just from the little bit I have looked, I love it and know that the cover quilt is one I will definitely make.

Not a very good picture of the book--I can't seem to upload the pictures from my camera and so have to use my phone.  At any rate, you get the idea.

On the quilty front, I have started "ruler work" on my cheater.  It is hard!!!!  I refuse though to give up, I know I can do it!!!!!!  Practice, practice!  Plus, I have purchased several (not too cheap) rulers that I must learn to use.  I have looked on You Tube and really haven't found anything to help me, but I will keep looking.

At any rate, thanks for stopping by....stay cool!
