 100 Blocks Surprise Giveaway!  

I have had a rotten bout of cluster Migraines lately and this wonderful win has cheered me no end. While I have not managed to get much sewing done it has been wonderful to look and fondle and have a quiet read. There is so much inspiration in the quilt world out there.

Cheers Lynne

Congratulations! You are going to have sew much fun with all of your goodies. I love the reds and blues and I saw several things that would be fun to look thru. Hope the migraines get better. Just lay back in a dark room, and stroke your new fabric. Hope that helps.

wonderful mug, cluster migraines is something a friend suffers from and he is often up all night for weeks on end.
Not sure how long he can take it as not much is helping.
