The Winner & Born To Ride!

The FIRST winner of the FIRST shop Give Away on the Woolie blog is.....drum roll...Jeanne!!! who said,  "am a new follower of your blog. You have stolen my heart, you do wools and I so want to learn to do them too. Thanks for the opportunity to win Farm Fresh Fat Quarters from The Quilt Shop."  The winner was chosen using the Random Number Generator so Enzo's dirty paw wouldn't have get on my computer.  So Jeanne...send me your mailing address and I will send it along...and you had better do it fast cause I am bonding to the fabric!  I hear another shop is thinking of participating so keep checking back!

As for yesterday...I did not sit down in my sewing room once!  Why???  Because I was Born To Ride!

Yep, I am officially a biker chick!  I purchased a used scooter not only because it is sooooo dang cute! But because it gets 100 miles to the gallon!!!  Sure I only can ride it May-Oct around here and sure we had a lady in the OR who fell off hers and broke her arm and sure....yada, yada, yada...I hear all you nay sayers out there who think I am nuts...but...do you see the 1000 watt smile on my face?!  So, yesterday was spent at the DMV, the insurance company (only $75/yr insurance!) purchasing a helmet and decorating it...and then, riding it around and around and around my subdivision.  I started out only being able to go 10 miles/hr and worked my way up to 25 miles/hr.  Today I will hit the open road!  It has a very cute wire basket on the back and I intend to make a quilted insert!
