Sabado Tarde + The Give Away
Yesterday was one of those crazy running around days. It was supposed to be one of those days where I could catch up on my blog reading, sew and just be in my space...but...oh nooo...it had to be a running around day. After spending an hour in the pool exercising I came home spent just a few minutes on the computer and had to hit the road again. First a stop at Hancock Fabrics ! they are having a huge sale and I needed pillow stuffing for my cute snowman pillow and some other items which will complete a surprise project that I will have on a future blog. I was greeted by Keith, who is such a wonderful manager. The store was hopping and sewers were wanting to show him what they had created! Although he is a seamster??? is the the male form of seamstress??? He currently is in the middle of his first quilt!!!
I finished stitching the top to my cute snowflakes in the star pillow. I really should start and finish a Halloween project but, this has been on the back burner long enough. I love how it turned out and am ready to put the finishing touches. Those finishing touches will have to wait a day since HH and I are heading to Crater Lake! It has been an embarrassing bone of contention that all the years of living with a National Park in our back yard we have never visited.
Since we are taking a break I have decided to extend the Give Away another couple of days...because I really want even more photos. So, you back row people who never put your quilts in a show, send me one photo, your name and state or country you live in...to... firstname.lastname@example.org ! Maybe if I put a photo of the Give Away on Sundays blog you'll be encouraged to send me those photos. The ones I received today are wonderful!!!
