Give Away, Day 7 & Winner for Day 5!!

The Day 5 Winner is Quilting Babcia!!!  Send me your mailing address and you'll be sipping some coffee while  dreaming about quilts!

My Sisters Book Group (Bookie Babes) celebrated the final meeting of the year at Latigo an excellent restaurant in Sisters.  We discussed The Nightingale my favorite book for 2015 and we had a Santa exchange where each of us brought a favorite book.  Such an enjoyable evening...then Santa showed up!!! OMG, he knew who had been naughty and who had been nice...and when he saw me he said...that one has been naughty...opps...I've been caught!


I woke up yesterday morning to construction sounds.  Amazing how we can get a house built when there isn't a lot of space to park the  equipment trucks!!!  It is so good to see our little neighborhood grow...keeps the dust down when the wind howls off the mountains, lol.


I had to get my grandson fix and even though Portlandia was flooding...we couldn't risk missing out on the Christmas holiday with them.  This was the parking lot of my sons work!!!  All these paramedic were out helping people not knowing that their cars were getting totaled by the flood waters :(  Luckily for our son it was his day off.   They have set up a Go Fund Me for all the paramedics who cars were totalled.  What I did not know is that for the most part Insurance companies consider this an act of god and so the damage is not covered by Auto insurance. :( 


On with the Give Away!!!  Day 7's Give away is a great publication by Better Homes and Garden.  I love the quilt on the cover!!!  So, if you are interested and are a registered follower of the Woolie blog just leave a comment on this post and we'll see who the dog dish coughs up!  Don't forget you have 24 hours to leave a comment on the Day 6 Give Away!


Have a great Wednesday and enjoy the video...
boy, does this bring back memories!

  1. I wondered when I saw your Instagram post of Enzo in the car if you had headed to Portland, mystery solved.

    Glad to hear your sons vehicle was safe. Floods can be so unpredictable.


    I love Lucy, wish they would run some of her old shows.

    That book looks lovely, enjoy your time away!

  2. Great book, and yes indeed, the quilt on the cover is fabulous. I Love Lucy was the best comedy on TV, and is still funny.

  4. Thanks so much for drawing my name for Day 5! I've sent you a facebook message with my address, probably will be in your "other" message folder. We lived about 50 miles SW of Portland for 13 years, and this last batch of storms look way more severe than anything we experienced while there. So glad your son's vehicle wasn't one of those flooded.

  8. Your book group sounds fun. Earlier in the year you mentioned reading " One Second Later". My husband read it and returned it to the library before I got to it.
    He said it was good - I'll have to check it out again!

  9. Love the quilt on the magazine cover too. Pinks and browns are yummy! Enjoy reading your blog. Interesting that you are selecting a word for the year. I have narrowed down to two words...still deciding.

  13. Stay safe while driving during these nasty wind and rain storms! Thumbing through a quilting book would be much more preferable.

  15. I had forgotten how funny "I Love Lucy" is! I wish you could send some of that rain our way -- California. We are getting some today, but so far not much. Merry Christmas

  16. Lucky for your son but sad for so many others. We have flooding on Van Island as well. I know all about having to get a grand kid fix.

  17. probably being mean, but does that mean they believe in God, because they won't pay out?
    that stinks, end of rant!

    congrats to your winner, I love the Quilts magazine.
