I Would Like to Thank the Academy . . .



Okay, not exactly--EXACTLY would be I would like to thank Donna over at The Calico Horse. As some of you already saw, I was the lucky winner of a FQ bundle of Moda/3 Sisters Sanctuary line. Some of you may have clicked on Donna's name and found that there was no mention of the FQ bundle giveaway on the blog it led you to, so I wanted to set the record straight--if you click on Donna above, you'll get to her shop blog.

Donna also has a personal blog called The Quilted Star. Then her daughter, Michelle, has a blog called Star Hollow Quilters which links to her shop where she sells jelly rolls and charm packs--check out Michelle's blog and enter for a chance to win a charm pack and jelly roll!

What a blogging family! It's a wonder there's any room LEFT on Blogger for the rest of us!

And in case you weren't already aware, Donna is kind enough to employ Cheryl (who just had a birthday, by the way). So Donna does quite a lot to keep Cheryl out of trouble. (But then again, Donna makes Cheryl dress up like a reindeer!)

And you know Sharon (Red Geranium Cottage)? Well, when she's not running around all over the world, taking photos of her husband, Sharon sometimes teaches at Donna's shop. And I'm not saying anything about keeping Sharon out of trouble because I suspect that's not even possible!

So here I am, stuck up here in Northern California while all the fun seems to be going on in SoCal. Not only are those gals I mentioned down there, but Vicky and the infamous (albeit invisible to Blogland) Jane are also down there. And you know what? Now that I think about it, maybe the high concentration of crazy quilters in SoCal goes pretty far to explain why they have all those earthquakes! You think?

So, anyway, there's a photo of the Sanctuary FQ bundle up at the top. I sure am looking forward to getting to fondle and touch it. And, gee, I'm really sorry Upstate Lisa that you didn't claim your prize, but you know the old saying--you snooze, you lose! And now that your time's up and Donna picked me instead, I guess it's okay if I untie you and let you out of the closet, but you have to promise not to tell, alright?!
