Look what came in the mail

I came home from school today and found this package in my mailbox. I wasn't sure, but I was hoping, that it was from Donna of Donna's in the Attic. And it WAS!!!

I was the fortunate winner of her yo-yo challenge and she sent me this absolutely lovely quilt. Isn't the label so sweet.
I was having company tonight and I dropped everything I needed to do to get ready and got out my camera to get a picture to share with you all. It is beautiful and has GORGEOUS fall colors.
When my company came over (my knitting group) I was sure to show it to them all!

I just love it Donna. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will treasure this forever!!

take care,
