 I'm a winner!  Last week I entered a give-away during Put A Little Love In Your Quilt hop and won this Tulips quilt pattern from Bejeweled Quilts by Barb.  You can get this pattern and see all of Barb's patterns on her Etsy shop.  You won't want to miss them.  Thank you Barb.  I can't wait to make this quilt that has both piecing and applique!  You know I love applique.
I was also a winner today in another way, because my friend Mary asked me if I was interested in attending her Book Club where Debbie Tenbrink was to speak.  Debbie is a local author who wrote Warped Ambition, a Jo Riskin Mystery.  I loved hearing Debbie's talk today.  She told us about how she got her ideas, how long it took to write her book, and that she is on the third book in this series.

Members of the book club used words of praise, and many said, "She had me hooked from page one."   "I couldn't stop reading.  I had to know what happened next."  "She makes you feel that you are reading about friends."    You can also see many positive reviews of her book on Amazon. 

 Debbie was inspiring and I can't wait for the second book in this series to arrive on the book shelves.  You won't want to miss how she weaves a mystery that will capture you right from the start.  Many of the women today commented about how they liked that the story takes place right here in Grand Rapids.

A special thank you to Mary for inviting me!

NOTICE:  The Happy Scrappers who usually meet the second Saturday of the month, will be meeting on the third Saturday this month due to the Heart of Winter Tour.  The Wednesday group will meet as usual on the second Wednesday of the month, Feb. 14th.

First, I LOVE the postage stamp quilts in your last post - so darling!!! I'm glad you had fun! Congratulations on your win, that's a darling pattern - Barb is such a great designer! I'm going to have to look for Debbie's book, I'm always looking for new authors, especially if they don't contain cussing, lol.....heading over to Amazon!!
