The Full Pirate Booty Story. . .

I have been requested to show all my booty....especially from Houston, so I have added a new gallery of just my shopping. You can check it out here.

I have so many pictures to share, I might have to post several times today. . .

I'm now officially a guild member (though in our area, most folks belong to 3 or more guilds) of the Four County Quilt Guild. It was the least I could do after winning soo much stuff last night. I got a first time visitor gift (fq) and a door prize drawing (2 fq) and won 3 lots in a brown bag raffle. Talk about BOOTY....(I still claim they didn't shuffle the bags up enough).

Inside the little wooden box was a treasure chest of pins and other collectible items, including the original owner's guild name tag and card. Kinda sad as well. The items were donated by her family to the guild. Also in this booty was four small quilts, a binder full of patterns, rulers/mats, knick-knacks and lots of fabric. I have sorted through it all and have found many gifts I'll give this holiday season and Project Linus donations.

Now pictures from over the weekend at the shop. Picture of my co-workers (Joyce, Carolyn, Sharon, Me, & Juliana):

And the final count of blocks for the Quilt Pink project. I need to make a few more to make a larger quilt.

I'll post more pictures later....I've been sewing this week...sorta.


  1. I'm so pleased for you - you deserve to do a bit of receiving too :O)

  2. I'm happy for you too. I'm so glad you got so many little treasures. I know you'll put it all to good use. I bet it was fun going through everything. Just like Christmas only early! :)
