When I was checking up on a few bloggers tonight, I realized I had missed the March Friday Nite Sew In last night. I've also missed National Quilting Day today. I did go into the Sweat Shop for awhile this evening, but I was so uninspired by what I'd been working on that I decided to completely shift gears on the project--tomorrow. So I just turned off the lights and shut the door. And, if anyone's counting, this is the third or fourth year in a row that I've pretty much missed National Quilting Day! Maybe if I'd known, I would have been a little more motivated. Did you "celebrate"? What did you work on?
At least I can pretend the pincushion giveaway is in honor of National Quilting Day, right? You won't tell anyone that it's just a coincidence, will you? What do you MEAN you won't tell as long as you're one of the winners?! Sheesh!
One of the commenters mentioned she'd been given a pincushion by a neighbor with Eskimo children surrounding the pincushion (no, the neighbor didn't have Eskimo children--the pincushion DID!), so I had to go looking online for one--and they're really cute! Want to see what they look like?
If any of you know my husband, tell him he can get me one the next time there's a gift-giving occasion and he's stumped on what to get, okay?
I guess it's time to announce the randomly selected pincushion winners, isn't it? The three winners are Gwen, Judy in Michigan, and Mary at Quilt Hollow. Ladies, please email me your snail mail addresses and if you have a strong preference between the two colors--a bright yellow and a kind of hot or deep pink--let me know. I actually have two of each, so I'll try to accommodate your choices.
Now I think it's time to go to bed and read a Kate Shugak book by Dana Stabenow--her series is set in Alaska, and seeing that cute Eskimo pincushion put me in the mood.
Thank you all for entering and congrats to the winners!
