I went to my sewing group last week (which I always look forward to immensely because it is such a fun bunch of people) and my friend Kristin had this wonderful gift for me! She had it made for me by a talented woman she knows named Cindy. I was so excited to receive it. I told her it was so much less narcisistic to have if I didn't make it myself. Though I am not above that! I love it!! I should also tell you that Elizabeth of Oh Fransson! had a copy of her book that will be released very soon and it is FANTASTIC! I already had my copy ordered on amazon but now I am ordering more for gifts. It has a ton of great info and several beautiful quilt patterns.
On to the winners! I asked my kids in the car today on the way home from soccer to each pick a number and my son picked #16 which just happened to be sweet sweet Joan! and my daughter picked 32 who is Allison, who does not have a blog but will be getting some fabric to play with! I will email you both to work out the details!
So I have to tell you that when I went outside to take the picture of my lovely pin cushion I was sitting beneath a tree that has good size glass jars hanging from it. I usually have candles in them but we have had a lot of rain and they are full of water. Slimy green water. I sat down to take the picture and told myself to mind the jars on my way up but in the 30 seconds it took to have that thought , take the picture and stand up again, I had forgotten and I stood up, bonked my head on one got a bunch of slimy green water down my back. Ewww! I did manage to keep the pin cushion dry though.
