Day 4 Give Away & The Winner from Day 2!!!

I know I am not alone when it comes to the emotional ups and downs of the holidays.  But, the number one, numero uno, numero un,  nummer et,  reason I make it through the holidays is girlfriends.  Their kindness and friendships are a soft spot to take a rest from the reminders...and, hustle and bustle of the holiday season.  Thank you to all the friends near and far who brighten my life!

Let's get to it...the Winner for the Day 2 Give away is....Bonnie58!!!  You still have 24 hours to leave a comment on the Day 3 Give Away!!  Also, if Elaine doesn't contact the Woolie by Monday...that Give Away goes back in the dog dish. Remember if you are a "no reply" commenter then I have no way to contact you and so it will be up to you to check back.  If I have your email I will give you a heads up :)  I would appreciate if all participants be a registered follower of the Woolie Blog by clicking on the "Join this site"  button...but you do not have to include your email if you don't want too :).

The Day 4 Give Away was donated by a Material Girl and is a historic type book of the Quilt Blocks that were published in the Kansas City Star.  If you are interested leave a comment on this blog post :)


And, yesterday I found out that I won...yes!!! doing the happy dance...a pattern from Debby Busby of Wooden Spools Designs...I am going to have fun stitching this one!

Yesterday the Juniperberries had their Christmas party and pincushion exchange.  So much fun...so many kind, kind women.  I made this pinchusion for Lynda...bringing a little Woolie into her life :)


I put together a pincushion slide show so you could check out the wonderful creations!  We missed you Lori and Ginn!

  2. Congratulations on your win! That is a cute pattern. I like the old newspaper patterns and how cool would it be to have a book with some of them in it.

  6. Congratulations on your oattern win. When I first looked at it I thought of pretty Christmas party dresses with bows on mannequins and then I realized they were Christmas trees!

    After seeing all the red and white quilts in Houston this year I would love to win that book. Yes I'm a follower/stalker of yours.
