Sunday evening I received an email from Deanne Fitzpatrick with the subject line "You Won".
I won...? It couldn't be........Must be some kind of early April Fools joke, eh? Well it was no joke. I had won Deanne's monthly basket!!
I could hardly contain my excitement. I wasn't able to pick it up until today at lunch time and the wait was brutal. I couldn't wait to see what little goodies she had selected this month. Here is the basket she had all done up for me. The urge was to tear through it right there in the studio, but again I showed great restraint as I wanted to take a picture for all of you before I started rifling through it.

OK - enough with the restraint! There is a great hoodie sweatshirt with one of Deanne's patterns printed on the back, some wool, note cards, a book, a dvd and even a fancy felted bar of soap!!!
WOW - All treasures! I don't even know where to begin with the thanks. But thank you Deanne for your generosity, for the warm welcoming atmosphere whenever anyone enters your studio, for sharing your talents and thoughts with us, and for just being you!


  1. Looks like some very yummy things! Congratulations on your win! Doesn't it just make the day great?!! Esp. coming from Deanne! Cathy G

  3. congratulations, it couldn't have happened to a nicer person.

  5. What a lot of stuff, even the basket is nice to fill with wool.
