First, if you are looking for the Giveaway click HERE!. Welcome to all the new followers and thank you all for sharing about your favorite birthday presents! I will say we have a lot of iPads and Kindles out there! I am still trying to get threw all the comments! The best thing for a blogger is a full inbox! I had a giveaway once with only 5 people, so this is really Awesome! Yippee! (I am jumping and kicking my heels together).

I really haven't posted anything lately because I have been grieving! Yesterday, I decided I had better do something (to pull myself out of this) so I cut up the Lorax panel and a few strips to sew a boarder on then sewed the background to the main fabric on the first block for the Skill Builder BOM. The lesson is excellent, I followed the step-by-step instructions with no problems at all. The hardest part was choosing the colors I would use. I finished the block this morning, it is called "Soundwave" and I am sooo happy with it! The Ombre …

Traveling Stash Pass It On Giveaway

Image
The Pass It on Traveling Stash Box is jam packed with fabric, patterns, and notions! The best part is opening the box and finding so much stuff with the feeling you could remove everything and repack it with any thing you want for the next person. Only problem with that is it could be quite "costly", a whole lot of things fit into this box. So, my cousin and I careful looked at each item, which was fun. Their family came for Thanksgiving and deer season. Which means our husbands and kids where all out hunting when this box arrived the day after Thanksgiving. This was in the box! Yippee! I really love this stash box concept! I fell hard for these things! And this pattern - not the kid's mess on the table! I am adding these patterns and notions to the box! I pulled these fabrics from my stash to replace the stash I wanted to take out.

Hawthorne Threads Pre-cut Sale

Image
Hi Everyone, I hope your all doing well. I have been busy shopping at Hawthorne Threads They have the latest and greatest fabric, a blog, a weekly giveaway, and terrific sales! I got everything you see here for less than $50.00. Enough to keep me busy for a little while. So, next time you are looking for a great deal head over there and look in the pre-cut sale section and clearance section. Oh, this is just my opinion, nobody sponsors me. I just like beautiful designer fabric and don't have a lot of money. I look for good bargains where I can find them and I consistently find them at Hawthorne Threads. Thought I would pass this along to my friends out in blogland. Have a good week! Later I will show you my progress on Miss Sophie's quilt. Later Lisa
