I finished all the little pieces and parts into bow ties from last post. It was such fun to play with all the pieces in different patterns! But the bow ties won out.
A funny thing happened in our neighborhood this morning. I was out walking, and saw an Estate Sale sign. Oh no, I thought...not another one of our elderly neighbors!! So I walked the block and walked into the house...and met a quilter! She was selling lots of her belongings, because she and her husband are moving to Taos, New Mexico! She has a long arm machine and is a scrappy quilter, just like me!! Darn, I sure wish I would have known about her earlier...someone my own age, and a quilter to boot!! She was selling this beautiful basket above. I love it, and it now lives at my house.
Now the most fun thing ever happened this week! I ordered this pattern, from Sue Garman...the OMIGOSH quilt. I have loved it forever, and it is just the right pattern for scraps...the ultimate pattern for scraps!! I ordered two of the pattern, so I could give one away. Guess what? Sue Garman herself e-mailed me and said thank you for ordering!! I wrote back and told her I was going to give away one of the patterns, and she sent another one also to give away!! So...I have two of this pattern to give away. It is such a fun one!! So just comment on this post and I will draw two names next week to win this pattern. Sue was just the nicest, most kind and down to earth lady via our chat. Please see her website HERE...she sells the most beautiful patterns! And her blog HERE. http://suegarman.blogspot.com/
