Hello Friends, and Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful Veterans Day weekend.
1. Day in Life.
So, what’s on your plate this week — as we head into Thanksgiving? My little family actually left town for Thanksgiving getaways the last couple of years because it was nice for once or twice to not have to go into all the preparations for a big meal. And I think two years ago, I was out of time three separate times in three weeks in between the end of October and Thanksgiving. By the time I got home from the third trip, I most certainly didn’t have enough time to prep for Thanksgiving.
But this year, we will be staying at home and enjoying our Thanksgiving with a couple of friends. I still need to go to the craft store to find flowers to fill my cornucopia. I am hoping Hobby Lobby still has their autumn stuff out.
SO, NOSY MIND DESPERATELY WANTS TO KNOW IF YOU ARE TRYING SOME NEW FOR THANKSGIVING THIS YEAR! I WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU FIRST BEFORE I TELL YOU WHAT I AM CONSIDERING DOING… :)
2. Market Giveaway Winners.
Thank you for being so patient with me. The winners following are to receive:
#1. Fabric Bundle #1 (Anthology Batiks) — billiemick
#2. Fabric Bundle #2 (Anthology Batiks) — janicekholton
#3. My New Book Stitching Pathways — Joanne Reiser
Please email me your address so that I can mail the goodies to you. Each winner will also receive a copy of the latest Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks (Volume 16)! I have a Christmas wreath block in there (Block #1587)!
3. De-stash news and more Giveaways!
This is my official announcement that my de-stash project is complete. HOWEVER (read on)…
I will also be giving away fabrics to keep my stash from accumulating again! These will mainly be leftover fabrics from the quilts I piece. And instead of a format where interested quilters signing up and getting fabrics in the order they sign up, I am going with a “giveaway” format. So, I have these two piles to offer.
#1. Pioneer Bride by RJR Fabrics – these fabrics have gone into this upcoming and a personal epic quilt! Most are at least 1/4y.
#2. We Share One World by Windham Fabrics – I have used these to make my “back to school” geography wallhanging a couple of months ago. Many are FQ’s with a few being less than 1/4y because I have cut from them.
SO — with these giveaways, you will have to be willing to pay $9 for shipping/handing. Enter a comment in the comment section and indicate which pile you would like. For example, if you want to be entered in the giveaway, write in the comment as follows:
“Giveaway – Pile #1” or “Giveaway – Pile #2”
If you don’t want to be entered in the giveaway, just comment as usual. I will pick and announce the giveaway winners in my Wednesday post. Remember, if you win the giveaway, you will have to foot the shipping cost…. because I have more giveaways coming, and simple can’t cover the shipping costs for all the upcoming giveaways. I hope you will understand.
Alrightie – Friends, that’s all for now! I need to look in the fridge and dream up what I can serve for dinner tonight. Cooking isn’t quite my forte even though I love to dish and tablescapes!
Have a lovely rest of your week!
