Busy in my little sewing corner!







Well I have spent the last week piecing my nephew Jason and new wifes wedding quilt. I will go to the quilter on friday and I hope to have it ready for them when they return from their honeymoon the following friday. They are going to the big apple for the honeymoon. That is one place I have always wanted to visit but never to live, it is just way to big. I really hope they both have a wonderful time.


The backing on this giveaway is pieced from several different pieces and patterns.


Here are the official rules for my giveaway. Each comment recieves 1 chance and if you mention my giveaway you will recieve an extra chance, post a link to my blog and you will have another totalling 3 chances in all. Giveaway will close at midnight next thursday, the 5th and I will draw the winner around noon on the 6th.


Good luck to one and all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1






We had some cold weather come thru on Mon nite and it has been cold with a little snow for the last two days but it got up to 62 degrees today. I think tuesday nites low was 9 degrees.






Tomorrow I celebrate my first year of blogging and will be doing a giveaway of a childs sized lap quilt. It is done in pinks, light blue and black with a really cute cat print. I hope people will spread the word and I will get lots of visitors. I have posted some pictures with this post. It looks more red in the picture but is actually a raspberry colored pink.

Congrats on your first year of blogging, what a wonderful milestone. I love the pieced back on your quilt, I don't know if I would be brave enough to try that but it is a wonderful idea.
