The Tale of Mr. Winkie + A Give Away

The tray I ordered from Buttermilk Basin arrived while I was at retreat!  It is especially made for the Vintage Truck Series.  I am going to take it to the local glass shop and get a tempered glass oval cut to lay on top of stitchery to protect it and then I can actually use it as a serving tray :)



As I promised...a Give Away sponsored by Buttermilk Basin!!!  
I have 2 patterns, the Snowman truck...


...and the Pumpkin Truck

I have made reference since retreat about Mr. Winkie...I made up a little slide show to introduce you to our roommate at Quilt Retreat!  I have a lots of last minute things to do before we hit the road and I will be blogging from the road...if I need a day off I'll let you know :)  Have a great Wednesday and I'll see you tomorrow!

  2. I have to as, how did he get the name Mr. Winkie? That is a great picture show of his antics.

    Those vintage truck mats are great, your looks great on the tray. It would be hard to choose one!

  14. I do love that truck series, would love to be entered. Fun having a mascot and I was thinking that I need one to take on trips so I can use it for photos, lol. I usually have Bill and Bean get in the picture, but they can't sit still;)

  34. What a prize...Stacy's vintage truck series. Every time you mention you're Getting ready to hit the road Willie Nelson singing 'On the road again' pops into my head.....I'm so jealous. I can hardly wait to retire (giggle)

  35. thank you for offering such great patterns. not just now but always.the tray from buttermilk sure does compliment your truck pattern. traveling around is always such fun especially when you have such great companions. the trucks remind me of an old truck my husband had and wouldn't get rid of. you could see the road passing you by as he drove down the long island expressway in new York. those were the days.
