I got on the computer tonight to check emails and write my blog and I was reminded, once again, of how much I enjoy hearing from you. "Talking" with those of you who read my blog enriches my life, and I appreciate it when you take the time to leave me a comment.
Thursday night I finished the second wool project for my class--despite the stomach pains I was experiencing. Really, doing the stitching and seeing my project ever closer to being finished took my mind off feeling ill. Do you find the same thing to be true when you're not feeling well but quilt anyway? I think it's just about the best medicine!
With the snowman, I wanted to offer a winter project that didn't scream "Christmas," and I think this works. I dug into my stash of vintage Thimbleberries fabric for the border, but the project only requires a little, so I decided I could make the sacrifice. I think this really is my favorite Thimbleberries fabric of all time.
Did you know that today's 10-10-10? Kind of cool, huh? It's also Thanksgiving in Canada--also cool, right? So in honor of a couple cool things and just because I like you, I thought I'd have a little giveaway. I ordered a couple of these Halloween panels which would make a pair of vintage-looking Halloween pillows or serve as the inspiration for any number of other ideas, and I thought I'd share by giving one of the panels away. Each of the two squares in the panel measures around 18" to 20"--I haven't measured them but that's my estimate. Here's the first one:
And the second:
If you'd like a chance to win the panel, please leave me a comment on this post telling me you want to be entered and I'll draw a winner Monday night--the winner will be posted on my Tuesday blog post, and you'll need to come back to see if you've won.
COMMENTS CLOSED--WINNER ANNOUNCED SOON!
