The winner is........

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! We had our company yesterday on Wonderful Wednesday.

I was all excited to show you some pictures of my newest grandson, but Google has decided this is the day to mess me up. Apparently, I've used up the quota of pictures allowed, and will now have to pay. Today, of all days! I'm really bummed.

So on to the winner... see the Christmas fat quarters as the prize in the previous post - I can't show them to you today.  The chosen winner is................

I wish I could have picked you all......

(insert picture of Zombie Hubby Hands here picking a name out of my hat)

Love of Quilts is the winner - Please email me your name and address, LoQ, and I'll send you package out right away!

So enjoy your turkey and the love of family and friends!

I've got homework to do to see how this works, and if I can afford to blog any more.  It has been fun.

The Prize is...

We went to the River City Quilters' Quilt Show on Saturday - no pictures - I forgot to take the camera...but I did find some pictures for you from the show at Quilt Inspiration

Anywho, it was a very nice show, and I found a nice little prize for our lucky winner...
(We're choosing a winner on Thanksgiving Day.)  Here's the prize ~

Four Fat Quarters of Christmas Fabric.

I would have opened them and shown each larger piece, but they are tucked into a special fold that you might like to analyze.  They are a lot cheerier than shown. So that is the prize.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day.

200th Post!!!

Nothing special planned, so lets have a GIVEAWAY!  This contest is now over! Thanks for participating.

First a look at the finished five blocks for Alycia Quilts' QOV....Done!

 Laid out on the cutting table (above)
 The long view...
And a close up.
So I'm off to find a prize to give away... Your only task for a chance to win is to leave a comment.  Do you think hearts are okay in a QOV quilt?  How about the stars and swirls?  (QOV - for those who don't know - are quilts given to soldiers and sailors - made with love by their countrywomen, (and men I guess), to express their gratitude for their service to our country. QOV stands for Quilts of Valor. Alycia collects donated quilts and gives them out to soldiers in her area of Colorado.)
I'll get the Zombie Hubby Hands to pick a winner in a week... November22, Thanksgiving Day! The prize will be announced next week - probably Monday, November 19.

2 of 5 done for Alycia Quilts

I've got 2 blocks done...
Here they are side by side.
Alycia is having a little contest. I'm in, but need to get these post marked by tomorrow... so short post. The blocks will become QOV quilts... a very worthy cause in my book.

More Palm blocks

They are mounting up! So far:

And really that is all...  two more orange to make it 6 of each and then I'm going to fill in with one of each until it gets quilt shaped.... I do like the two by two view. I thought of white and black around the outside, but I saw a quilt with w&b blocks around the outside and it really drains the color out of the center. We can't have that.

I'm going to show off at A Creative Princess and Confessions of a Fabric Addict. See you there.

Happy Weekend to you~

Clothes (Hubby) Horse

I love to tease my Hubby... but look what I have to work with!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  He just makes it so easy!

He was soooo proud that he can get into his High School Letterman's jacket again. (It had lots of awards on it at one time, but more than 50 years ago his sister (name not given to protect her) removed them so she would have a cool jacket to wear to school.  Spiffy!? LOL!!!!!

Three blocks for Sandy Victims

To help Vesuvius Mom make quilts for the victims of Sandy, go to My Patchwork Life for the directions for this block.

Colors on this block aren't this caustic. Camera added some acid. I'm sending these 3 off tomorrow.
Sorry I didn't know that I had word verification on all these years!  Thanks Sheila for letting me know!  If you find something you don't like about my blog, please let me know.
