Final Day For The Give Away

Today is the last 24 hours to leave a comment on this blog posting with a name for Sandy's rabbit.  All you have to do is be a registered follower and leave a comment with the name.  She doesn't even have to pick your suggestion, you just have to make one.  Tomorrow the dog dish will cough up the winner (much like the sorting hat in Harry Potter) and you will be sent this pattern.  I made this quilt out of Kaffe Fasset's muted woven and prints and it was fantastic...I wish I had a photo to show you but alas the quilt is in Illinois and I am not.  But I can tell you without a doubt it was wonderful!

Yesterday Robin and I finally got our "time off" approval from our manager for our quilting trip to France in September.  We had our hearts set on it but with the way things were going in our department we weren't sure it would happen.  Come September Lori, Robin and I will be heading to France for a Quilt Tour!!!!!!  I laughed out loud when I saw this video from our tour guide Jeanne!

We will fly into Paris and take a train to Strasbourg where our tour will begin.  Robin will be celebrating her 60th birthday and we will be partying with her!

What is not to like about a place like this!  I was there around 2008 and it was charming, beautiful and fun...I kissed a cow there but that is another story for another day when I have nothing to blog about! LOL

Have a wonderful I am heading off to my doctors for a physical...a "Come to Jesus" moment for sure! lol


  1. I can only dream....a quilting trip to France ...making memories with friends....what could be better...Luved the video! Happy Thursday Anna

  2. What a gorgeous village to go to. I would love to go to europe but then I guess I would have to get on a plane, lol.


  3. I'm so excited for you and your friends to do a quilting tour of France - what a wonderful birthday celebration for Robin too - we will all be anxious to see the photos - sounds too good to be true! It will here before you know it!

    Hope your appointment went well - you need to be in great shape for that tour!

    Enjoy your weekend, Anna!

    1. Estou ansioso para setembro a sentir a paixão do vinho, comida país, e ... claro, o quilting!

  5. Anna, how great that you get to go to France. I bet you will see many beautiful quilts. Please include me in your giveaway

  6. I am sooooo jealous that you are getting to go to Europe for the quilt tour! I'd probably never come back, though, if I went. I'd be too busy looking at everything. I just love the photo of that bridge! Your saying for today is a thought provoking one, and so true!
