Anniversary pics & My Giveaway

Today was the day for my MIL & FIL's 50th Wedding Anniversary! We all surprised them by taking them to lunch at York Cove (which is just down the road from their house)..... the meal was just beautiful!! Here is the Fraser clan:

At the end of lunch, we all went into the Lounge and opened the big pressie that was sitting on the chair......... yes, we made them wait until AFTER lunch to open the gift!!

And here is my MIL...... This pic was taken straight after it was opened:



Here is my FIL checking out the quilt that Roseanne and Myself made for them to mark their special occasion:


I thought I would share a pic of the quilts new home.. The colours match the bedroom perfectly don't you think??

Now, onto my Giveaway!! Remember this..... After I got home today, I was really in a stitching mood and decided to finish it off. And, it only took about an hour!! Can you believe it lol!! I patched up the hole and added a larger twill tape and it is as good as new!! So, to celebrate my 200th post this will be my Giveaway (minus the scissors - their mine!!)


I have made SO many of these, as they are so handy - I use mine everyday!! I just love these fabrics, they are a Teresa Kogut range:


Now, if you would like to enter my giveaway, please post a message on THIS post and I will draw the winner in a week using the random number generator - 4th April approx 7pm AEST.

If you are a 'no reply' commenter, I will need you to add your email addy to the bottom of your comment...... If you are unsure if you are or not - I try to reply to every comment, and if you have commented on my blog before and have never received a reply, it is because you are no reply!

Congratulations ladies on such a special quilt. I don't know how you managed to keep it a secret for so long then give it after your meal. I would have been busting at the seams. Tell me what is that quilt that the sewing caddy is on? Can we have a look at it one day. Happy days.
