I Won Again and Another Block of the Month Block

I'm not a person that generally wins very many giveaways, but this month I've actually won two! The first one I featured in my last post. The second was because I entered one of my quilts in Amy's Creative Place spring quilt show and my name was drawn for a $20.00 gift certificate from Pink Chalk Fabrics. Thank you so much Amy and Pink Chalk Fabrics! I was able to choose whatever I wanted so I decided these two fabrics had to be mine.
 I need a new tote bag for quilt guild and classes so this fabric seemed perfect. It is created by Kokka of Japan and was on sale so I was able to get one yard of each with my gift certificate!
If you have been reading my blog very long, you know that I attend a Block of the Month group sponsored by a local quilt shop. Here is the block I finished last night (the meeting was this morning).
Here's the blocks I have finished so far.
 I'm behind I should have nine blocks completed by now, but I only have six and the lower right one I think I will use in the center medallion so I really only have five. I'm hoping to catch up soon!
I have had a hard time getting to my sewing room lately. As I mentioned a couple of posts ago our dear little dog died and left a huge hole in our household. We decided that things were just too quiet and got this little guy.
He is great fun and has so much love to share. He is also very busy and takes so much of my time. I need to figure out how to puppy proof my sewing room so he can spend time with me while I sew. I just haven't quite figured out how to do this yet, so my sewing time is limited. He's worth it!

Oh, I love your new addition, there's nothing better than new "puppy breath" and new baby smells (right after they've had their bath, of course)...He's cute...
