October Mission Accomplished

My October UFO finished:
This is the ThimbleCreek Mystery Sew Along from earlier this year. 

It measures 77" x 77".

Curly quilting, bias stripe binding and the perfect backing found on sale--whew! 

 
I am in recovery mode after getting home from the retreat--I think I slept nine hours last night. And there was some damage control to take care of this morning--sometimes leaving your spouse on his own can be a dangerous thing--haha! 
This afternoon I plan to sew Step Three of Pam Buda's Pocket Patchwork Sew Along: Tucker This is my Part Two (thanks to Janet @ Rogue Quilter, I caught my boo-boo before I did any sewing!).
I promised to pick a winner today for the Pam Buda pattern.
I used the random number generator HERE and it came up with Number Nine: Christine Barnsley! Christine has a wonderful blog Patchwork Allsorts and does lovely embroidery--check it out! And what she is doing with the Bunny Hill Snowmen is beyond adorable!
