Winner of Ida's 102nd Post/After Birthday Giveaway!!

Never dwell on what you have lost, only on what you have left. Count your blessings. You'll always find plenty. Your most prized possessions are your unexpired years.   -Author Unknown

The quote above reminded me of many who have started lucrative careers late in life.... It is difficult to think about starting something new at a time when some of us are retiring and "slowing down" but I was reminded of Grandma Moses, Harlan Sanders, Julia Child and others who didn't let their age stop them from starting something new that they wanted to do....I hope that I can remember that as the years continue to pass..........mostly the part about counting my blessings and realizing that the time I have left is precious......

So now anyway............guess who won that gorgeous Pink Windsor by Bunny Hill Designs jelly roll???  Which one?  This one...remember?
Early this morning (while I was working the graveyard shift....check it out....it was at 1:25 this morning!)  that "True Random Number" generating kind of guy, Mr. Random,  picked lucky number 13!

------and our winner is Anita! 


So, congratulations Anita!  I will be contacting you by email shortly to get your mailing information which I will forward on to Judi and Clint at Green Fairy Quilts......
Once they get your address they will have your jelly roll heading it's way to you.........  And, by the way, Green Fairy Quilts is having a free shipping sale right now.....that together with their sale prices is a win-win situation if you ask me............ 

I want to thank you all for celebrating my 102nd post and Belated Birthday with me and ask you to stay tuned because I will be having a 200th follower giveaway soon.....Jodie from Ft. Worth Fabric Studio has already given me a couple of surprises for you.....
I'm at 188 followers right now.....but you know me.....if I don't make it to 200 soon, I'll just have a "188 Followers" or a "Nearly to 200 Followers" Giveaway....lol

And, Wow!.....speaking about winners............I recently entered The
Best Show on Earth -- the 2012 Pets on Quilts Show and had such a fabulous time hopping from blog to blog seeing all the pets and quilts.....


and although I didn't win first prize it sure felt like I did because courtesy of another fabulous sponsor, The Fat Quarter Shop....I won a $100 gift certificate!  I am so flabbergasted that I don't even know what to look at first!  But not to worry........I think I will be able to figure it out.....so thank you, thank you, thank you,  Fat Quarter Shop!  What a great place!
 I guess that's all I'm going to babble about this time...........I will talk to you again for One Flower Wednesday.............TaTa for now...........
