Winner and Fabric Friday

20 comments
Sarah's Placemat Blog Party has been great success this week. Don't forget to check her blog to see if you won a prize there. For my giveaway to go along with Sarah's Party I had some really great and thoughtful comments as usual. I didn't attempt to reply to all comments and I apologize for that but I read them and smiled, laughed and blushed. Thank you everyone for participating. I know this sounds really corny but I do wish I could send each of you a bag kit and patterns.
I drew 1 number/name and then because I had another extra kit and I just felt like giving away 2 kits (since your comments touched me so much), I drew another winner. The winners are:

Kit #1 - Brandie, of ABC Quilts, writes: "I love your bag! I hope I'm lucky this year. Luck seems to revolve around every 4 years for me and I don't know what year I'm on. Great place mats. I love the Halloween one the best." Well, Brandie, you are lucky this time! Good for you.

Kit #2 - Susan in NC (reader not a blogger, and that is ok!), writes: "I love all the different variations of your placemats - this looks like a really fun pattern. Great giveaway - I really enjoy your blog and seeing your creativity."

Brandie and Susan please send me your home addresses. I have email addresses for both of you, too so I can get a hold of you as well.

Again, thanks everyone. This was fun.
Today's Fabric Friday is short and sweet. Allison will be going back home very soon since my daughter's foot is doing better. We will miss having her here everyday. Allison's outfit is the theme for Fabric Friday today. Pink, Green and a little bit of yellow. (Just in case you wonder who Allison is smiling at, I'll tell you. ME!)
Recently I met some of my girl friends including my BFF Lori Holt, who helped me pull some fabrics together for a new pattern I'm working on. She and I like many of the same things and Lori has a fantastic eye. It is great to get help from her. She's just so amazing and creative. These fabrics are the green and a little bit of yellow to weigh out the great amount of pink in this new quilt.
I'm really excited about this project. I just haven't had enough time to develop some of the projects rolling around inside my brain so when I get a chance I get really excited and focused.

Next week: More on Lori and the girls as we met at Material Girls Shop with Nadine. Also, who would like to attend a retreat in October in Alpine, Utah? I'll be teaching a class at a fabulous local quilt retreat destination spot. (details pending).

Have a great long weekend everyone. Be safe! I'm helping Natalie with some of her quilt projects and want to spend some solid all day sewing time on Monday.

Allison is so cute in her little tutu. Would love to retreat with you.

I remember reading Brandie's comment and thought "hope she wins" and she did. Congrats to Brandie! Allison is ooooo photogenic. She is just adorable in that tutu! Would be so fun to retreat with you but will have to enjoy photos you post instead. I'll be retreating with friends at the end of September. Need to finalize my details for that right after the 4th. Oh, sooo busy!

I can't stop looking at your sweet little Allison. She's such a delight. I can't imagine how you get anything done. I'd stop every five minutes to scoop her up and snuggle.

Susan said...

Grandma Nan, your heart must be melting to see her smiling at you with that adorable face. She is so cute! Congrats to Brandie and Susan on a great win.

What a cute baby picture -- of course she's smiling at you Grandma! I want to go to go to a quilt retreat! Too bad I'm already signed up for Houston and don't have any more vacation. Boooo for working! Can't wait to hear more though!

Pat said...

Congrats to your winnners. I do believe your granddaughter gets cuter with each passing day...which is amazing since I thought she was super-cute from the beginning. How can she keep getting cuter and cuter like that????

belinda said...

Well, who wouldn't love your placemats....they are FAB and of course who wouldn't LOVE little MS. Allison....yes...CUTE baby with GREEN TUTU included!!!

Jen in NY said...

Rats, how did I miss out on this contest? Those placemats are so, SO nice. I love the Holiday Happy one. I've been wondering what to make with my fabs, this may be what I was looking for! Have a great 4th!

pratima said...

The placemats are so adorable and cheerful! I wouldn't have thought that they were all made from the same pattern :)
The prints for the new pattern are so pretty! Allison is all smiles! I love the soft green on her :)
