May~Spring to Finish

Something really good came to pass!
Jacquie really motivated me to get those works in progress finished. For April I had 12 finishes, 5 for May. My name was chosen as the winner for May! Yeah, I'm so excited! I told my guy, "see, now all that sewing paid off!" Yesterday I received a very fun package in the mail all the way from Tallgrass Prairie Studio in the great state of Kansas. My camera is in Alaska with my guys for 10 days, so I can't take a picture of the lovely little table topper, the awesome hot pad and the lucious fabrics I received from Jacquie. (just so happens to be some DS fabric contained therein!)I will post a picture asap. It's was a little odd how I kept feeling and touching these precious things, knowing that it was all created by the quilter extrodinaire that Jacquie is. I feel very fortunate to have some of Jacquie adorning my home. Thank you very much Jacquie, you are wonderful!
Edited to add: DS fabric is Denyse Schmidt fabric. Denyse has designed 2 or 3 lines of fabrics that I'm aware of, I love it all, many others do too. I've heard that Denyse will not be designing anymore. Shucks.

Isn't Jacquie one of the best of the best. She really is fabulous and she inspires so many.

How can it be that I just got back from two days of quilt shop hopping, and I don't know what DS fabric is? I thought I was learning good. Wanting to see a picture. Good thing your guy was gone, so you really got to touch the fabric without anyone eyeing you.

Can't wait to see the goodies. I'm not sure that I know what DS fabric is either.
