Cacacacrazy Time for a Give Away!

I think I said I was going to do a Give Away after the Quilt Show and never got around to it...so here we are...the last day of July, hello August!  It is a wee bit nuts-o around the old sewing room...I went into my pattern stash and made sure I did NOT have this pattern before I ordered the kit...then, a few days later I found the pattern. Oye Vey.  Although in a crazy way, maybe it would take having 2 of the same pattern to get the project done, lol...NOT!  So, I am giving away one of the never been used patterns.  It is a beaut of a wall hanging and if you start now you may get it done by next July 4th.  Just leave me a comment that you are interested and if you would be so kind to be a registered follower of the blog...it would make me happy :).  Today is garbage day so lets give it away on next weeks garbage day...kinda like clearing out the clutter, lol.


Here is a peek at the results of the Quilters Affair class that Robin and I took with June Jaeger.  Brim is looking mighty fine...Robin is already quilting.

 Enzo...still doesn't have a head!  I do have his hat done but the photo program was so confused that there was no head that I couldn't get the photo to load upright! LOL...poor Enzo.  His hat is looking mighty fine though.

I am under the wire the next few days...I need to get my BJ's BOM done before Saturday and my sister and her besties are flying in on Friday!!!  Better get busy...on the Weight Watcher side I got a 5 pounds sticker yesterday.  Even though I am not losing by leaps and bounds I still weigh less today that I did at the beginning of summer.  That is something to celebrate!  have a great hump day!

  2. you do keep busy, don't you.. Can't wait to see Enzo finished - he is looking mighty fine so far.

    And whoo hooo to you for losing the weight. Wish I could say that.. but wishing won't make it happen - I need to slow down on the eating part.

    Enjoy your company

  9. I have admired this pattern numerous times, but have not yet given in to the temptation! Thanks for the chance to win. Don't know how you are making Enzo - that is something that I don't think I could ever do, but yours sure looks great! Good job with WW - it is a great program...one that I need to get back on!

  11. Keep up the good work at WW. Here in Michigan we have Routines for each month - July was "Is it worth # many points?" (it probably is the same in Oregon). My favorite hint was to just take 3 bites of something sinful (like pie)! It works!! Good luck on completing you BOM.

  12. I have never tried this technique and I can´t wait to see how Enzo´s face will look like in your quilt. And as I´m really in a kind of blue red white period I would love to win that lovely patriotic quilt pattern. Thanks for your give-away.

  13. Love the materials you used for his hat. Sometimes I spend days trying to find the perfect print for something, well worth it. I am not entering, just visiting.
