And the winner is.........

Sorry I am a little late on this post. Everything was going along fine, and then ,
"Internet Explorer" encountered a problem and had to close, in the middle of downloading my pictures. Technology is awesome!

I want to thank you for all your helpful comments, and you'll be happy to know that I actually got 12 blocks completed this weekend. I'd like to say it was because of your tips, but it was really because "the boy" was was only here for Saturday night while his mom and dad went out, and I decided to forego housework this weekend. But I am going to try to set up a small machine in the kitchen to sew while he's playing.

And without further ado, the winner of my fabulous goodies is........

Please send me an email or comment on this post with your mailing info, and I will get it on it's way tommorrow. Happy Sewing!

Happy Birthday

Well, today marks our 1 year blog anniversary. I figured we should celebrate by years instead of posts, as it could be a while before we hit "100". I wanted to post this earlier in the week, but the boy takes up most of my time during the day while mommy works. Somehow, every time I think I will have some time to really sew, life gets in the way. Anyhoo, I am giving a birthday present to one random lucky reader. Up for grabs is a 6 piece fat quarter set of Anna Maria Horner's Good Folks fabric, and a set of Orla Kiely dish towels. I would have made you a bag out of them, but I couldn't find the time. Talk to "the boy" about it. Leave a comment with a tip on how to schedule in sewing time, and I will draw a winner on Monday morning at 9am Orlando time, and I promise to post it immediately afterwards. Now I'm going to spend (waste) some more time looking at favorite quilts from the Bloggers Quilt Festival.

I forgot to mention, anyone can enter, I will ship anywhere.

Blogger's Quilt Festival

I had a hard time choosing my favorite quilt, as it seems that all the quilts I finish are favorites. Unfortunately for me, most of the quilts I have made, I have gifted to others. Luckily I have visitation rights. The other problem, I seem to forget about photos until after it has been gifted. (or the computer crashes and you lose all your photos.) This quilt is a quilt I made for my husband, (you never make ME anything) out of a group of my favorite fabrics from Lonnie Rossi. I seem to have a thing for fabrics with numbers, letters, type, and anything that looks used, worn, and stained. One of my favorite pieces of modern art was a framed piece of canvas that had been the top of a painter's table, covered with various layers and colors of paint.

Make sure you head on over to , and check out all the other quilts. There are lots of beautiful quilts to see, and don't forget to comment for some great prizes.

Easter Pimp

Just thought I'd post a quick photo update of the boy. His mommy sent them to me, saying he was all "pimped out" for Easter. So grown up for 14 months. Also note the haircut. It's very stormy here today in Orlando, so hopefully I'll have some pictures tommorrow of the bags I've finished up. Do they count for "Spring to Finish"? I certainly have alot of WIP's like that. See you tommorrow.
