Sew….

…after a short  blogging holiday…I’m happy to say that “I’m baaaack”! 

During my holiday I have kept busy…VERY busy!  Of course I have continued to quilt but I have also been gardening like crazy, moved one daughter into a new condo, gone wedding dress shopping with another, hiked many trails, attended Club and Heritage (a few times) and done the usual everyday things…

But let’s talk QUILTING…I have to tell you, I was OVER THE MOON to win “Harvest Moon by the Lake’s” give away…the sweetest little wool mat!!

Told you…dang cute!!  Yup, she is going to look mighty fine sitting on a table in my house!!  Thank you SEW MUCH, Leanne!!

I also won this little bundle from Renee Nannemen of Andover Fabrics!  (I entered through her monthly Newsletter).  I KNOW…LUCKY ME!!  There must have been a million entries so I was shocked to win the runner up prize..which was this sweet bundle… P1230218

Three Fat Eighths of her newest line of fabric, Chateau Chambray…just enough to get me salivating for more!

P1230219

This sweet wool mat/pillow pattern ‘Garden Bunny’…

P1230221

And this Need’l Love “Garden Gate Threads” Book…

P1230220 

Inside are the sweetest patterns ever…like this tulip quilt…made in those yummy Chateau Chambray fabrics!  Sweet dreams guaranteed when you sleep under this quilt!P1230222

And just LOOK at that bowtie quilt!!  Love it!!P1230223

Yup…I predict another bowtie quilt in my future…AFTER I tackle a few more UFOs…UGH!!

Thank you so much, Renee…just love your very generous Give Away gift! 

Now let’s talk about Blogging…THANK YOU everyone for your very sweet emails!  Such lovely words of encouragement!  FYI..I am going to keep on blogging…just not so often…when the spirit moves me!! :o))  Hey, it might be several times a week or not at all!  If you don’t hear from me it doesn’t mean that something terrible has happened…it just means I am busy sky diving or climbing the Himalayas or wrestling alligators! 

I sure hope this works for you as I really appreciate you and your friendship!  Keep those comments coming…I love hearing from you!

Now…where did I put that parachute?? 

See ya’ later Alligator!  P

  15. What a darling little mat, Paulette!!!
    And I understand about the blogging - some here and some there - because right now it's hard for me to get much blogging in as well. My plate is just full right now so I try to catch up when I can.

    Hugs to you.

  25. Especially this time of year it is nice to not be committed to daily postings.
    Now, if you really want to skydive, you must do it! I've already talked to them again about jumping out alone! lol That's how much I loved it! It was a life changing event for me.
