Angels on Earth

Do you have those special people in your lives, that do the RIGHT thing at the most perfect moment?

Thursday, I came home to a box on my doorstep. was stamped on it.  I was not expecting it at all.  I was stumped. Did I order something and forget?  Did I have something missing in my last order?  Am I TRULY losing my mind with all of these boys in my house.  Are they slowly driving me crazy?

Of course, I ripped the box open! I found this fabric jelly roll in it.

Lucy's Crab Shack.

I recognized the jelly roll from a few weeks earlier.  I had entered William's Quilt at the Quilting Gallery in the "Quilts for the Little Ones" contest and the Lucy's Crab Shack jelly roll was the first place prize.  

I actually did manage to get votes for third place!  I also received BEAUTIFUL emails from bloggers/passerby's who had such wonderful and nice to things to say about the quilt and the work I do for Butterfly Kisses.

However, I was still a bit confused.
 I didn't order it.  Did I win it?  I clicked back to double check the votes.

Nope...still third place?!?!?!
Then I had my ah-ha moment. My friend Brandi had sent me a message earlier in the week to keep my eye out for the mail. I was having a rough few weeks and I thought she was sending me a card or something!

Cheeky girl!  She said that she had read that I could make 2-3 donation infant quilts for Butterfly Kisses with one jelly roll.  Sweet girl, she felt I should have won the contest, so she sent me the prize.


 It is currently sitting in my stash, waiting for the frenetic holidays to end and for me to find a bit of time to make a few donation quilts that I can offer to my babyloss parents that don't have anything for me to embroider.

Thanks Brandi!  I love it!!!!!   You are the best!

Anyone else have great friends like that!??!?

Pssst.  Don't forget to check out the Blogger's Quilt Festival at Amy's Creative Side.

I have received so many comments on my entry and am trying my best to answer them!  In the meantime, I am also trying to go through all the other entries.  I have already figured out that I am already following 250+ out of the 395 entries (as of midnight).  Not to mention a few that I recognize from seeing here and there.   I am so glad to be a part of such an amazing and talented group of quilters!!!!!
