Christmas Give Away Day 1


This is my favorite time of year...The Woolie 12 Days of Give Aways!  For those of you who are new to the blog I collect patterns or books that have been either made by myself or some of my friends and give them away for the first 12 days of December...actually only post on the week days :).  All you have to do is comment on this blog post each day that you are interested in that particular days Give Away, be a registered follower of the blog and check back to see if you are the winner and email me you snail mail address.  Easy Peasy!

Day One Give Away
Winner announced on Monday!


Life is all about flexibility and my play days with Stacy didn't happen for a variety of reasons but all worked out for a great time in Portland with my oldest son.  I was able to set up the city Christmas Tree, wrap our grandson's Christmas present...and, make a visit to Fabric Depot.  I did a Quilt Roadies Video of  my visit there which G is editing (not the best videographer, lol) and I took some spectacular photos over and back on the mountain pass.

 On the way over

On the way home

Barely any traffic which made for a peaceful journey.  The only truck heading home was one filled with Christmas Trees...which is kinda of a crack up since there are trees everywhere, lol.


Anyhoo, it was a wonderful time is the city but I am happy to be home with G and Enzo...and of course more sewing time in the Command Center!

  26. The Winter Crazy Table Topper would be a treat to win! I would like to know how to join the pieces. I think you have to overlap the pieces. I tried to piece a wool crazy quilt piece without overlapping. It wasn't a good choice. Please put me in the drawing.
