My Fall Into Fall Giveaway!

The winner is..... Jen @ Miss Punkie Pie! Congratulations Jen!

Here it is! My prize in the Fall Into Fall Quilters Blog Giveaway. It is a Lazy Girl Designs Sassy Bag made with my own little hands. I also crafted a coordinating tissue holder to "sweeten the pot".

All you have to do to win is comment on this post and tell me your favorite fall color. I just love all the rich reds, shades of brown, and even the eggplanty purple you see when the leaves start to fall.

I will draw a random winner at 8 pm EST on October 15th. If you do not have a blog, make sure you leave an email address so I can contact you if you are the winner.

Make sure you visit the other participants blogs and enter their giveaways too! You can find them at

Good luck everyone!

Yes, I do remember how to sew. I have been so busy I decided I needed some ME time. I decided to sit down and sew for a bit this week.

Isn't this little bird cute? I found the pattern for it and the bag below in the latest issue of Quilts and More.


On the home front.....check out this visitor to my wind chime. (Yes, it is really a wind chime given to me by my sister in law. Clever idea doncha think?)

I first thought he was a leaf that had somehow made its way upward. On closer inspection - LOL. He comes and goes and mostly stays here in the heat of the day. Click on the picture to get a better view. :o)

Don't forget about the Fall into Fall Quilters Blog Giveaway. I have been photographing my goodies this evening so I will be all ready to post my giveaway on the 1st. We still need more participants so get out a pretty fat quarter or two, tie a ribbon around them and join in.

Back to blogging

Hi everyone! I am slowing starting to get back into the swing of things. We love our new location and are still painting and unpacking. It takes a long time to get 20+ years of stuff squared away.

I probably won't be posting as often as I did before but I am going to try to do a weekly update. Our old house hasn't sold yet so that is consuming a lot of my free time.

I am planning to participate in Debi's Fall into Fall Quilters Blog giveaway. Be sure to check back in on October 1st to see what I plan to give away.
