Blogger’s Choice Bundle

Katy/Imagingermonkey has teamed up with Pink Castle Fabric for a  contest to create a bundle of fabrics.  The winning bundle will be sold in the shop and the creator also gets the bundle.  Oh, pick me!

Could be Summer

I called my bundle “Could be Summer” because of the unusually warm weather we’re having here in Wisconsin.  Is it Spring?  Or is it Summer?

The palate covers my favorite flower colors as well as some neutral greys for inevitable summer rainy days.

An oldie but a goodie

The folks over at are offering a contest with all kinds of neat goodies.  For my entry I present one of my all-time favorite quilts:

It’s the Kitchen Window quilt from The Practical Guide to Patchwork by Elizabeth Hartman.  It showcases various Anna Maria Horner prints.  I still love how beautifully (and quickly!) the pattern came together.  The directions are simple and her organization techniques are really helpful.

UPDATE:  I had a heck of a time getting this entered at the craftbuds website last night but I’m glad I persevered!

I AM a winner!

Yep, it’s confirmed:  I won a pattern from one of my all-time favorite blogger/stitchers, Elizabeth at Oh, Fransson! 

Yea – thanks Elizabeth!!  I am so very grateful.

She actually picked me the day after my birthday so I am a bit pokey about posting.

Procrastination Wednesday

Actually, every day is a procrastination day for me. 🙂  I just can’t help myself.  The web is such a font of knowledge and inspiration I just can’t help spending my free time here.  I know you know what I mean.  After this, I’m going to get some real work done.  But for now…

Today I entered a little contest at 44th Street Fabrics.  In addition to tossing my name in the ring for 6 yeards of Hushabye fabric (!), I found a great etsy store and an awesome blog.  Check it out.

In a family with busy weekends, this past weekend was really crazy hectic.  Between soccer games (played and watched), a musical, an Oscar Party, a tap dance performance and fundraiser, and the first meeting of the Milwaukee-Madison Modern Quilt Guild…whew!  I hardly had time to catch my breath.

I also didn’t have time to pick a winner, or at least I didn’t have time to blog about it.  So, I’m happy to announce that the winner of  my little it’s-my-birthday-and-I’m-glad-my-dog-is-back drawing is…

DUFF!  I’m happy to say that I scored some fresh Flea Market Fancy late last week, so I’m replacing the piece that was previously washed with a brand new one.  But because she asked, I’ll make sure she gets a little bonus dog hair with it.  Um, not really.

Thank you to everyone who shared their lost pet stories with me and wished me a happy birthday.  Kristen, if you’re reading this, you still have to tell me about the blue crabs!
