My fingers REALLY aren’t working this morning. Instead of typing “Giveaway Winners” , I typed“Gimpaway Winders”
Good thing I caught that because the Giveaway Winners might feel insulted instead of happy.
The winner of the “Snow” Penny rug is the new blogger Roberta English from Ohio.
The winner of the Lacey Heart Pinkeep is
Barb of A Corgi to Quilt By.
Congratulations ladies! Send me your address and I’ll pop your things in the mail!
In other news…..
for all those who’ve ordered my newest pattern, “CatTails of Love” I’ll be mailing those out to you today. Thank you all for such a terrific response. I really appreciate the kindness and your orders. :)
Brenda, at Pumpkin Patch Primitives, has the “Scarecrow Jack in the Pumpkin Patch” candle mat, kitted up with all the materials needed to make this candle mat. Just go to her website and click on the pattern picture to order.
Here’s what I’ve been working on the last few days. ….
I don’t intend to make this into a pattern. It’s just something that’s been in my head to make. I’m really in this neutral tone on tone mood, again. I get this urge every year to do taupes.
I decided to try quilting the wool by adding a layer of soft cotton batting under it. It needs some leaves, and I dyed some wool a nice taupey greenish color, but I’m just not really liking how it looks. Perhaps the green isn’t the right color or perhaps the leaves are too small … or perhaps I just need to just look at it for a while and hope an idea comes to me. I’ll keep this sitting on the dining room table for a while and I’m sure I’ll figure it out.
I plan to keep this one for myself, btw. I’ll be sure to show it once it’s completely finished.
The grandson is feeling much better now. He still has coughing fits because it’s really difficult to get a 3 year old to understand that running, jumping and tumbling are not good therapy for lungs that are trying to heal. But at least he’s breathing better and not feverish. Thank you all for the well wishes.
Happy Day everyone!
