A Little of This…A Lot of That…

Because of Debbie’s (Woodensails) fine detective work we now know that the marking pen that I wrote about yesterday is a  CLOVER Chacopen with Eraser.  There were quite a few of you, myself included, who were interested in getting one.  Thanks Debbie for doing that for us!  Now we can all storm out to our favourite sewing gizmo store!


If you are a member of the Between Charming Friend’s Quilt Along then you need to hustle over to Kelly’s Charming Chatters Blog!


And even if you’re not a member…hurry over to Charming Chatters and download the instructions for the  Between Charmed Friends Small Quilt.  If you are part of the Sew Along then it’s time to START YOUR ENGINES and put the pedal to the metal …wahooo!!  (We get to sew!!)


I love this little guy…don’t you?  Thanks again Kelly and Darlene (Quilting Daze) for doing this!!

Speaking of Darlene and Quilting Daze…I won a prize in her anniversary Give AWAY on Sunday!!!!  Whoopteedoo!!  It is so exciting when you see your name in print after you have read…’and the winner is’…”SCREAM!!”  Yes, I won a Jelly Roll!!!  It’s the one on top…the Cotton Blossoms Jelly Roll…sigh…isn’t she sweet!


Would you believe I am a Jelly Roll virgin…I have never owned a Jelly Roll…I have never taken the wrapper off a Jelly Roll…I have never cut into a Jelly Roll…I have dabbled…once…with a honey bun…but NEVER with a Jelly Roll!  I am so excited!!   What to make with it?  It will have to be something VERY special…something memorable…and sweet..after all it is a Jelly Roll and it’s my first!  Thanks so much Darlene!!

Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Quilting!!


  1. Congratulations on your win! I'm sure you will find lots of patterns for your new jelly roll. :-) I'm using one for Darlene's quilt. ;-) Have a happy day!

  2. Congratulations! I haven't even seen a jelly roll, so I will watch extra carefully what you will do with it. I have something like it, but it is recycled fabrics my daughter brought me from London. Still waiting for the perfect pattern to use it.

  3. You're so sweet - your Jelly Roll will be arriving very soon. :-)

    Jelly Roll Virgin - I'll be snickering about that all day. LOL

  4. Congratulations on your win Paulette!...I love that little quilt!
    Julia ♥

  5. Yea, I saw that win!! I just was shooting for the Schnibble patterns but didn't win.

    p.s. I'm a jelly roll virgin, too!
