Life's Little Pleasures

Besides quilting, I think two of life's little pleasures are eating and reading, and my recent giveaway combines both of those into one--Jennifer Chiaverini's cookbook and story The Quilter's Kitchen. And, of course, it's time to announce the winner.

As Hubby was drifting off to sleep tonight, I asked him to pick a number, and he picked Dianne of A Month of Sundays. Here's a photo of Dianne, by the way. You can't help but love a woman who wears pink flamingo slippers!



Congratulations, Dianne! Please email me your mailing address and as soon as I can remember where I put the book, I'll get it in the mail to you! (The house isn't that big, so I should be able to find it by Monday. Of course, I put it in a safe place where I wouldn't lose it!)

Quite a few of you mentioned in your comments that you enjoy the Elm Creek Quilters series. Guess what? If you didn't already know it, there's a new book out! I started reading my copy last night, and I think it's time for another installment.



Thanks to all of you for entering the drawing and for taking time to visit me!

I used to read voraciously, then I discovered quilting and somehow lost reading all together! I always feel like sitting without handwork is wasting my time somehow. I can't read in bed, so I'm trying to read every night to get ready for bed...but I definitely need to make more time for it again!

Well, since I didn't win, I had to order the book from Amazon. I ordered one for a friend for her birthday too, while I was at it. Thanks for making me spend money I don't have!
