It's All About Me!

But then, since this is my blog, isn't it always about me?! LOL!

Well, what I mean by the title, though, is that it's MY blogiversary--two years here in Blogland--and if you had a chance to check in over the weekend, then you know I had a little giveway of a pattern by Donna Yackey called Spring is Here. And you also know that I promised to announce the winner.

So as Hubby was coming out of the bathroom tonight, I said, "Honey, pick a number between 1 and 72." (By now, he's become quite used to me tracking him down and asking him to pick numbers.) "72," he said. And I thought that was rather clever of him because it seems like the first people and the last people who comment never get picked! So, Chocolate Cat, come on down! Well, no, not literally. But please DO email me your mailing address so I can get this pattern in the mail to you. At least you gals in Oz have about seven more months until Spring arrives, so you have a chance of completing the quilt by then!

And speaking of completing quilts, Jane in Ohio sent me a photo of the St. Patrick's Day quilt she finished using my pattern tutorial! She was also quite kind in allowing me to share a photo with you--

Isn't it great? I love what she did in the corners--now why didn't I think of that?! Wonderful job, Jane!

The weekend's almost over and it's back to work tomorrow. And while I'd really just love nothing better than to go back into the Sweat Shop and play around with the variation on Bucky Bunny I was working on earlier today, I think I'll try to at least start the week by getting to bed at a reasonable hour. I hope your weekend was a great one!

Our weekend was good on the "back 40" lots of work to still get done before our almost 3 year old grandson comes to visit with his family... in a couple of weeks. Bucky Bunny sounds like s great name. Boy Jane quilt looks very well done Received your Spring pattern - THANK YOU VERY MUCH. It is calling my name along with the others that have found a home with me. In fact they are practicing and are going to have a haulaluloia choir routine ready by this next week if I do not get them organized as part of my homework for the Fabric Economic 101 with Carol.

Wonderful class you taught!

I am finally getting started on my St. Patrick's Day table topper today. I wanted to have it done by now but have had lots of interruptions.

Jane did a great job on hers - very cute corners!
