The Winner Of My "All About Me" Is.....


CONGRATULATIONS TO....

KatieQ!

I've sent you an email, so once I get an address I'll
be mailing you the fat quarters (the lizard won't be coming.)

Mini Charms In The Making

I bought a variety package of Moda's mini charm packs from Jane at Jane's Fabrics and Quilts, but have just been staring at them (they really are cute!) until I could think of what I wanted to do with them.

I finally grabbed one mini charm pack out of the pile and just started sewing. 
Okay, I moved them around and around and around....etc., until I
figured out what I would do with them. There's only about 40
squares to a package, so it definitely doesn't make a full size
quilt or anything unless you add some fabric. 

I've only recently ventured into using white in quilts and decided
to use lots of white in this little baby (or maybe Spring?) quilt or
wall hanging thing. I'm winging it as I go along, but will
have to decide eventually what I'll be doing with it.


To be continued.....

Have you made anything with those cute mini charms?

It's All About Me, Me, Me....My Day!

Amy Bradley (you can find her blog HERE) created
a fun little character for us to get creative with...
Thanks, Amy!
Madame Samm (you can find her blog HERE

and created a blog hop for us...
It's All About Me

Me, Me, Me
(you can find my blog...oh, uh...you are already HERE)
took that fun little character and made this
sewing machine cover. I started with a pattern,
really I did, but somehow I veered off to do my own thing....
I should have stuck with the pattern. LOL!

I made ME into a matching pin cushion (though my chest size is definitely
not as large as this lady's.)  THANK GOODNESS there was 
no glue gun involved in the making of this pin cushion!

Hugs And Kisses To You From Me - My Day!

I just love all the hugs and kisses going on with
this blog hop. It's really getting me in the spirit
to celebrate Valentine's Day.

I've been missing my blog and all the blogs I follow because I've been sharing the love
with my sisters the last five days while we had a sister vacation in Las Vegas.
You'll get no details from me since "What Happens In Vegas, Stays In Vegas!"
Actually, there wasn't much excitement going on with us
old ladies, but we did have a great time eating, gambling,
and just catching up on sister stuff.

This is my Hugs and Kisses project, a small quilt with a sweet Valentine girl 
designed by Madame Samm (I just love her--the girl AND Madame Samm!) 
My quilt was inspired by a quilt I found at Richocet and Away! Mine's a little
different, but I loved what she did with her pattern.


THEN...

With my posting day quickly approaching, my sister sacrificed some of her party time 
out on the LV Strip to show me how to use the ruffler that I bought ages ago 
for my sewing machine, but could never figure out.
I love it and will certainly be using it again sometime.
Thanks, Linda!


Thanks to Jane for being the hostess and
of course, thanks to Madame Samm for
the inspiring idea to share the love.

There's a giveaway, too!
$20 from here
(that Jane lady is EVERYWHERE):

I've Lost IT...Really I Have!

I just announced the winner of my Follower's Giveaway. Yay!

Uh....wait! 
BIG WHOOPS HERE!
I wasn't supposed to have it end until 
TOMORROW at 6 p.m.
GEEZ! It has been a little crazy around my house lately,
but I didn't think I was that absent minded.
I guess I am.

Here is what it says in my rules:

"The Follower's Giveaway will end on February 7th at 6 p.m. PST"

See, it distinctly says "February 7th", which
is tomorrow, so I've clearly lost any small bit 
of my senior brain that was left.
(Vickie still wins the charm pack)

Hmmm....to fix this silly mistake you can leave another comment
(if you want to) on my Follower's Giveaway post

This time just say something like, "I came back" or "You've lost it for sure!"
or something really short so I know you're
back for the SECOND ROUND of the Follower's Giveaway.
All of those other entries/comments will be thrown back in the pot, too.

I'll think of SOMETHING to send the second winner.

It will FOR SURE, ABSOLUTELY, end tomorrow,
 February 7th, at 6 p.m......hopefully.
