TGIF & A Give Away!!!


Let me begin with an announcement that the Woolie will be off line until Monday, March 30th.  I am heading down to Session 3 of the Empty Spools Seminar with 4 other Fabric Stalkers!  We are taking a 5 day class with Sylvia Pippen and I can't wait!!!  If you are an Instagram follower I will be posting some photos there during my travels.  

Today we start off with a movie review!  Finally :)  HH and I went to see The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel...and he was only 1 of 5 guys in the entire theater! LOL  The movie was entertaining but not as good as the first one...and, I still don't quite understand the ending.  The Bollywood dancing was cool...but, the story line was a little convoluted.  I would give it a Woolie 3 which is average...but, it did have Richard Gere in it :)


I have to show you the finished non-woolie Woolie challenge by Marilyn.  Of course she had to add a different border...it is spectacular!!


Now for the Give Away!!!  Somehow I have ended up with 2 of the same pattern...don't say it!!!...I am giving one away.  All you have to do is leave a comment on this blog post you are interested and be a registered Woolie follower.  I will announce the winner when I return on March 31st!


I stopped in at BJ's Quilt Basket and the shop was filled...I mean filled to the brim with all kinds of stuff we need!!!  unfortunately Smilebox was having technical difficulties and so I couldn't post a slide show. But, here are a few of my favorite photos.  You can click on them to enlarge and if you see something you like contact BJ's Quilt Basket!  Have a wonderful week and we'll see you back here on the 30th of March!! 
Don't forget to leave a comment that you are interested in the Give Away!



 Great Gifts for a Special Quilter!





 cool fabric...all the trees are made of bicycles!
