I Spy….with my little cutter…..

Yesterday I cut up my I Spy fabric for the I Spy Fabric Swap which Karen from Sew Many Ways is hosting.  Forty bloggers will be sending her packages of 120  five inches squares.  I don’t envy Karen as she has to sort them out into groups of forty and mail them back to us.  What a lot of work….BUT we really appreciate it!   WE REALLY DO!  I can’t wait to see my 120 squares of different I Spy fabric!  What a great idea……Thanks, Karen!

P1030134 Is it just me or are there lots of Give-Aways this month?  I am NOT complaining as I love a good Give-Away..FREE is a good thing!

Janice, one of my best blogging friends, is having a wonderful give-away in memory of her dear mother.  What a nice way to remember your mom.  You must go to her blog and find out more about Janice and her mom…it will touch your heart!

The Flannel Queen and  The Dizzy Daizy are two online fabric shops and they are both having fantastic grand opening give-aways!  Go over to their blogs and check it out….

My Cookie Jar is full of entries for my first ever Give-Away which closes on Wednesday (Sept 30th)….I have had so much fun meeting new people and visiting other blogs.  I just KNOW that I am going to have to do this again!  AND soon! (For details go to last Thursdays posting called “My first Give-Away!).

ALSO Firecracker Kid is also having a give-away (you’d think it was Christmas around here!!)  Their prize is a gorgeous Primitive One of a Kind Rolling Pin Dough Bowl Keep.  You have to see it to appreciate it- a work of art!

Have a marvelous Monday (wow, it’s Monday already….guess we had a weekend!) and Happy Quilting!


  1. it's been forever since I visited... but I love your new blog header :) so pretty!

    You will have a lot of fun with your I Spy blocks that you get back. It amazes me at how many different fabrics there really are! And good luck setting them together. There are thousands of ideas for I Spy quilts. I just finished my daughters earlier this year and she loves it ;) she calls it her happy quilt.

    Love from Texas! ~bonnie

  2. Ah! Close your rotary cutter! You are making me nervous! My Home Ec teacher is rolling in her grave.
    I Spy blocks are such fun to trade, aren't they?

  3. I'm in the same swap...if I see your fabrics...I'll know they are from you. How fun.


  4. Humph. There's far too many people in your giveaway - how on earth am I supposed to win it? Think I'll contact everyone who's entered and tell them it's been cancelled - that should do it!

  5. Hi Paulette,
    I can't wait to get your squares, they are too cute. A few packages have arrived already and we are going to get a great selection of fabric!! I'll keep you posted.
