I Cannot Beleive it!

I just learned from Cathy at Cathy's Crazy By Design that I won her giveaway! And I had my choice of the Paris theme or the Lace and Fabric theme. It was truly a difficult decision as I love the blues and Paris themed items and can just see using them but I also love the laces and fabrics and can see using them as well. I decided on the Lace and fabrics to give me a starting point with my quilt until I find all of my quilting stash which is packed up in boxes! Thank you Cathy, so very much. I cannot wait to see your gorgeous laces!

Happy Independence Day!

I do hope you are enjoying your weekend! We are getting ready to swim and then we will grill burgers and enjoy the fresh veggies and lemonade! I will be watching my baseball game, of course. Go Braves! It really wouldn't be the 4th of July without baseball after all. And I will be stitching on the model for my newest design which is still on target for an August release.

On the CQ front I want to thank my dear friend Julie for the wonderful package she sent me. It contains lots of *scraps* from her sewing room as well as some beautiful trims and buttons. I think she is getting tired of me saying I am going to start my quilt. She wants me to just DO IT!! So as soon as this model is finished I plan to do just that. I will be pulling out the things I can find and the realtors and house visitors can just *stuff it*. I am so tired of trying to keep everything put away and neat when I want to have my stash and work around me and convenient!! I will try to get something to show you-and Julie- in a few days.

Until next time...

A Wonderful Blog!

Over the last few weeks I have discovered so many new blogs and have received so much inspiration from them. The latest is Cathy Kizerian from Crazy by Design. When you get a chance you must check it out. I will be watching her a lot in the future. And the best thing is that she, too, is having a giveaway. Check out her blog to see how to enter. She has two prizes shown.

A French Theme:

and a Lace Theme:

I now have so many ideas running through my head that I hardly know where to start. I have begun a special notebook just for my CQ ideas! And I hope soon to be able to put them into practice.

Until next time....
