update and giveaway

Just popping in to say hi and show that I am still here! I have been busy trying to finish a few projects ,one of which just doesn't want to cooperate. I have remeasured, recut, resewn, ripped out so many times I am surprised the material is still whole. LOL I am determined to get it done though as it is for my grandsons birthday and he picked it out. Funny thing is that it is a simple pattern and I shouldn't be having these problems. I think that is the most frustrating part of all.
I am also working on my red, white and blue block for the blog hop. My day is July 16th so stop by and see it, I think its a cute one.

Here is a great giveaway you can enter at Sew whats cooking. It looks like a really fun one. I won last month and cant wait for it to get here.

2012 Monthly Giveaway – August

For this month’s giveaway, I’m digging into my stash for a big grab bag of kid & critter prints. Some are smaller pieces, some are 1/4-yards, some 1/2 yards. Note – there are a lot of cat fabrics due to the collection I ended up with after making my kitty loving son’s quilt. There are also quite a few not shown – bees, flowers, more critter, ABC-123. Anyway – it’s a good size bag with a good assortment of kid friendly prints! Along with that I have an older special issue of Quilt It – For Kids. All the patterns are still attached inside and it’s packed with kid & baby quilts to give you loads of ideas!
So jump on over there and enter!
Have a great week and good luck in the contest!!
