How Cool is This?

I always thought that all my quilting buddies lived in my computer. But yesterday afternoon I had a real, live blogging friend come over! How cool is that? It was Vicki of Felines and Fibre Arts. She had a give-away last week and I won one of the prizes. Again - how cool is that? Since Vicki lives in Toronto, she brought my winnings over in person! Now I ask you, how cool is that? Tres, cool = no?

Look at what I won! Eight fat quarters of black and white fabrics! Cool - right? And two meters of Amy Butler fabrics in pink and turquoise. More cool, - yeah! And also a box of Nestle's dark chocolate delicacies! It just doesn't get any cooler than that folks!

Vicki also showed me the quilt she has been working on over the past few weeks. It is all quilted and she is giving it to her friend today. I was so happy that I was able to see it before she gave it away. I have been following her progress with this quilt on her blog for weeks. It looks good in her photos, but I have to tell you..... it looks absolutely amazing in real life! The colours are fantastic! The fabrics are beautiful and the quilting is totally unique and awesome! She used a friend's embroidery machine to download outlines of dinosaurs and then quilted those shapes with the embroidery machine! I didn't know this was possible. The outcome was stunning! Go check it out! Now how cool is that?

What fun to meet a blogging buddy in person. Wouldn't it be nice if we could ALL receive our prizes in person instead of in the mail??? :)

Look at you! Fabric and chocolates. The chocolate will give you a little kick of energy while working on your quilt made with your new fabrics!

Can't wait to see what you decide to make with them.

What a lucky lady and hand delivery, too.

Oh Hetty, I went and looked and you're right. That quilting of hers is fantastical magical. I left a comment as well.

I love the fabrics you won, especially the Amy Butler. A trip since I'm not really into that but I do like what you've got there. Now, as to the chocolate...I can't speak to that else I might get the munchies!
