First of all, thank you, each one of you, for telling me about your cleaning tips!! I really appreciate your time...and have taken many of them and incorporated them into my plan of housekeeping. This many seem a little silly, but my mom passed away when I was very young and I had a houseful of nothing but guys, so I really never learned all those secrets a mom could tell her daughter about housekeeping...so thank you so much from my heart to yours!! I have been doing pretty good all these years, but it is heartwarming for me to hear how you do your housework!
I am so happy to announce the winners from yesterday's impromptu giveaway! Loris and Mary from Quilt Hollow! You were chosen by Rosie the poodle, who has her nose in every quilting business there is around here...she pulled out some slips from the bowl I had them all cut up into and ran away with the slips! So, I had to chase her down and dig them out of her mouth...all good fun for her! Please let me know your snail mail addresses and I will send your your gifts. Above are some blocks I am playing with...I like them! I bought the fabric for the setting squares when I visited Karen Diane in Florida, a lotta moons back. Only takes me a few years to get stuff done!!
Now, I am having another giveaway!! You might giggle at this one...but I think if I can't finish something, maybe it is time to give it away. I would like to thank Konda at Moosequilts for making this wonderful pattern, and...that's right...I am giving away a UFO!!! You will recognize this as the lovely Jelly Roll sampler...so the first person who responds that they want this, can have it to finish, along with the rest of the Jelly Roll. The patterns are still available at her website, last time I checked. I have four blocks done of the twelve block quilt. I love the pattern, and I love the work and love that went into doing this for all of us in quilting blogland...and I also know that I am up to my tootie in alligators and projects and will not finish this anytime soon. It is kind of bad for me to just keep this when someone will finish it quickly and enjoy it. So, if this person is you...just say the word and I will send it to you! Is it cheating to give away a UFO?? Hee!!!
I am cleaning, can't you tell? This is a jacket pattern, and the two muslin foundation pieced stars are to be given away to someone drawn tomorrow at 3 PM. so another quick giveaway, if anyone if interested. These are kind of dated colors, but still nice foundation piecing if you are into that.
My quilting books are next...a ton of them and just ridiculous, how can I ever get around to that many projects? Even for inspiration, I have too many...stay tuned for them! Especially when you bloggers out there have so many gorgeous projects for me to drool over...
Have a great day!!
