We Have a Winner!


Thank you to everyone who participated in my giveaway this week.  I love reading through comments and hearing what everyone is working on.  This morning I got everyone’s names written down and cut and folded.

Here’s the big bowl full of names.  This was definitely my biggest giveaway ever so I was super excited.  After mixing them all very well I pulled the name…..

Janet Wright!  Who said… I was asked to teach a beginners paper piecing class, so i have decided to design my own pattern to go along with it.

Congratulations Janet I will email you right away for your address.  Thank you again to everyone who entered.


Mystery Quilt Progress


I didn’t show my mystery quilt progress last week because it had two steps and wasn’t finished until this week.  So here are the three rows I’ve made so far.

I love the little Minky chickies.  They’re fuzzy and cute.  I can’t quit petting them.  I got my latest kit today.  This week I’ll be making a pink and brown chevron row.  Can’t wait to get started on it.  Then there’s only one more week.  I’m excited to see the finished quilt but I’ll be sad that I won’t be able to look forward to it every weekend.  I did see a new block of the month project in the store though and it was calling my name VERY loudly.

I also saw this pillow made up and had to have the pattern.  I’m kinda a sucker for St. Patrick’s Day.

I also forgot last week in all of my malfunctioning madness to share a giveaway prize that I won from Cat Patches.

She was celebrating her 1000th blog post by hosting a giveaway for these 5 fat quarters.  I was so happy to win.  I think that I will find some great solids to go with them and I might have an idea of what to do with them.  We’ll see though when I actually get around to it.

Speaking of giveaway’s don’t forget to come back next weekend for the …

50th Post Giveaway!!!


This is my 50th blog post.  Wow!!!  To tell the truth I didn’t know I could talk (write) that much.  Before we get to the prize though I wanted to share some of the fun Christmas presents I got.

To start with on the before Christmas I got a package in the mail.  It was a giveaway prize I had won from Carol at Fun Threads.  I was so excited to open the box and see this adorable zipper pouch.  I take handwork around everywhere so I can always use something to hold thread, scissors, etc.

That wasn’t all though.  The pouch was full of sewing goodies.  I love the purple batiks and thread.  I can’t wait to use them.  I just need a great project.  If you have any fun ideas let me know.

On Christmas morning I was pretty surprised to open this present from my mom.  I’ve been eying this Kona Solids Roll-Up for months but just couldn’t justify buying it.  I’m seeing 2″ squares in a gray background.

This present wasn’t a surprise but I was still excited to get it.  I got the book A Touch Of Whimsey… by Abbey Lane Quilts.  It’s full of all kinds of fun pillows.  Anyone who knows me knows that I love to make pillows.  My hubby had bought me the pillow kit on the right a while ago and now I can make it.

So I’m looking forward to starting lots of new sewing projects.  I might even finish some.

Now on to the exciting part.  Everyone who’s been with me for a while knows that one of my favorite quilt stores is My Girlfriends Quilt Shoppe.  It’s full of so many cute and inspirational things.  The owners Kris and Kim are identical twins who also have a TV series called DIY Dish.  They are ridiculously creative and tons of fun.   Anyway, Kim designs great patterns so to finally get to the giveaway…

I’m giving away this pattern for the “Let It Snow” wall hanging by Kim Christopherson of Kimberbell Designs.  I have to admit I’m a little jealous and might have to go back to get me one.  I really love Kim’s quilts. To see more from Kris and Kim go to or
