A fun thing, and a give-away!

Have you seen these Ricky Tims playing cards? I bought some at Quilters Loft Company, my local quilt shop, where they retail for about $7.

Ricky Tims is well known in the quilting community for his spectacular award-winning quilts, his bigger-than-life personality, and his music. These pretty playing cards feature one of his quilts on the front of each card. The Ace, King, Queen and Jack cards of each suit feature different detail shots of his quilts. Tims, of course, is on the Joker cards, wearing his trademark Stetson.

They'd make a great fun gift or stocking stuffer for your favorite quilter. What quilting-related items do you have on your Christmas/Hanukkah/Al Hijra/Kwanzaa/other holiday wish list this year, quilters? Leave me your response in the comments section for this post. On Dec. 15, I'll pull one name out of a hat, and send the winner the playing cards.

AND THE WINNER IS... MOMID5!!! Please send me your street address, and I'll put the cards in the mail to you. Thanks to everyone for playing! Susan
