A fun day…

Leap Day 2012

An extra 24 hours in this year.

I had a pretty good day and a little luck.

Early in February, I went to my favorite quilt shop to get zippers.

I go to this quilt shop specifically for their zippers.

They carry tons, in lots of fun colors and they are only a little over a dollar each.

My daughter’s birthday was that coming weekend and we were having a surprise birthday party for her.

I invited 7 of her friends and decided to make each of the girls a goodie bag.

A goodie bag that looked like this.

I made 8 of them in all different colors.

I also got the pattern from the quilt shop.

Well, when I was checking out; they gave me a red envelope as part of their Red Envelope Extravaganza.

The deal was I had to bring the red envelope back on February 29, Leap Day, unopened and inside could be a prize or a discount coupon.

I put it on my calendar and decided that I would go back to see what was in my red envelope.

You just never know.

I also knew I would be needing some more zippers.

When I got there, the first thing I did was have the lady check my red envelope.

Low and behold, I was a winner.

I was so excited, I never win anything.

I figured I would just get a percentage off my purchase, which would have been plenty for me.

Not this time, it was my lucky day.

My mom has one of these and they are so handy to keep in the craft room.

I had been wanting one since I saw hers.

I also got to do a little shopping.

I found another pattern.

I love this one and can’t wait to get started on it.

I got enough material to make 2 of the long ones.

The pattern seems a little more complicated than the bags I made for my daughter and her friends but I’ll just have to take my time.

I can’t wait to see how they turn out.

So, I had a great Leap Day 2012.

How did you spend your day?
