A Giveaway!, My Life

Classic Metal Company Light Winners

How was your Thanksgiving?

I had just enough turkey, pie & black Friday shopping to be content!

Today I’m putting away fall &

carrying down boxes Christmas decorations.

It’s so nice out today.

So nice in fact, that when I took a package to our mailbox

I decided to start there with the Christmas decorating.

So far I have the greenery on our mailbox & my parents’ mailbox

(they live down the street)

and a couple of wooden lollipops outside as well.

When Clare gets home from work we will start making the house festive!

I hope your Thanksgiving weekend has been enjoyable too.

It’s about to get even more enjoyable for two of you!


It’s time for a drawing…

Sew, 3 Lucky Winners!!!

I’m impressed with all of your comments on the quantity of baby quilts you have made and so many of them for babies other than your own,


Charity, friends, friends of friends, co-workers…

Quilters are definitely some of the most kind-hearted and generous of all people.

That just makes me smile!

I’m happy to be able to share in giving 3 lucky winners more inspiration to work with, so here they are.

First, the lucky winner of 100 Blocks Vol. 6 to inspire,

Becky in Georgia, congratulations!

Next, the two lucky winners of a Suzn Quilts Pattern of choice,


who likes my Wheels & Dashes pattern.

This pattern starts with a bunch of charm squares so a lot of the cutting is done for you.

Next Scarlette,

who likes my In Season for Christmas pattern.

This is part of my “In Season” series.  There is one quilt for each month.

It includes a little bit of applique, a bit of hand stitching with perle cotton and just a bit of quilting.

It’s quick & easy enough that Scarlette will have time to make and hang it this Christmas!

Thanks for all of the great responses to my new “Baby” block.

There is more blogging fun with opportunities to win more prizes the rest of this week.

Check over at Quiltmaker for the list of participants.

For those of you that don’t win an issue of 100 Blocks,

look for them on newsstands starting next week.

Until next time,
