Okie dokie then ... how excited am I???
Boogetie, boogetie, boogetie ...
Look what the mail lady brought to me today:
Yes, indeedy ... my Cuppa Cozy and Little Quilts book which I won from Madam Samm of Sew I Quilt ... words ... LOVE IT!! :) scwheeet! Thank you so very much Samm!! (((bonus Pure fabric on the Cozy -- you all know I adore Sweetwater fabric ... okay so I drool now and then ... seriously ))) and the Little Quilts book by Alice Berg, Mary Ellen Von Holt and Sylvia Johnson very, very nice. And, if that wasn't sweet enough ...
well, I took some time this evening to read some blogs and discovered this most fantastic news ~
The Moda Pillow Talk Blog Hop recently ended and during the hop we were asked to leave comments on each post for that designer's designated day. Some of the designers had giveaways ...
In fact, two of my ultimate favorites are Kansas Troubles Quilters ...
The KT giveaway is a Perennials fat 1/8 bundle, which goes to Wendy from Florence, MT. Congrats Wendy!
And, Sweetwater Fabrics ...
The winner will win an entire collection of fat eights (from Sunkissed of course!). And the winner is....WendyMT
Yes, I feel as if I won the quilter's lottery ... Thank you Moda, Kansas Troubles Quilters and Sweetwater Fabrics!!!
Yes ... I humbly thank you!
And as for the my finishes for Charming Girls Quilt Club ....
Kelly you are awesome!! You work so very hard, even in your down time, and you inspire me ... I'm grateful to be included in your club. So ... I am proud to report that while I did not finish all I set out to accomplish way back here ... I did accomplish this:
1. Bind my Sunday Squares wallhanging
3. Gift Shawl for dear friend
4. Ritzy Cracker Quilt for daughter's friend
5. Quilted 2 quilts on Gammie
8. M'Grug for SewIQuilt contest
9. POSTAGE STAMP QUILT TOP ... Yay Me!!
10. Totally up-to-date with my Block-a-palooza Blocks ... Score!!
I'm sure there are a few tidbits here or there I'm forgetting, but I'm sure you'all will forgive me in my brain's excited fever tonight ;)
And besides ... being as this is post 99 ... I am working on some very "Sweet" ideas for my 100th post giveaway. ... though I have to say it'll be more of a giveaway in thanks to all my supporters than for my posts as I've deleted several quick notice posts that would have put me over the 100 mark long ago, so I'd rather show my gratitude to all of you that follow my gibberish blogging than anything else .... I'm grateful for you!
Heads up ... no-reply bloggers ... not good. Please check your status. This doesn't help either of us, especially if you win....
Oh yeah, one more picture to this long winded post ...
This is my Gammie, in my studio, looking out towards the back of my house ... with the quilt that I just about gave it all up on ... not mine, a friend's ... a story for another day, but lucky for me, a very dear, wise friend called at the right moment, talked me down from my stress-high and I recovered :) Thanks Missy!! I pray I am the wiser for this event and I may have to post this picture on my inspiration wall as a reminder! I'll say this, newbie long-armers and perfectionists DO NOT mix!!! Enough said.
Quilted blessings to each of you! Check back for my Supporter Appreciation Giveaway soon :) Trust me, I think it'll be worth it!
