I'm Still Here . . . Are You Still There?

Well, there WAS a volcanic eruption in Iceland and a few earthquakes around the world, but nothing particularly apocalyptic in a worldwide sense. I kind of feel sorry for the people who quit their jobs and gave up all their possessions in expectation of leaving the world on May 21st. Yes, I pretty much figure they were awfully gullible, but then most of us have faith in SOMETHING that can't be proven, and WE certainly don't think WE'RE gullible, right? So who can say? It's just kind of sad. But, hey, we're all still here and doing okay, so that's something to be thankful for.

And another thing to be happy about? Gran called me this morning and said the new shop had sold out of my Fireworks! pattern and needed more. Here's the quilt--perhaps you've seen the pattern in my Etsy store?


It makes a nice lap size quilt and the piecing is fairly fast and simple. I thought since the world isn't ending just yet and my patterns are selling, I'd have a little giveaway. If you'd like a chance to win a Fireworks! pattern, please leave me a comment, and I'll enter you in the drawing. I'll pick a winner tomorrow night, so this will be a quick one. Good luck!

COMMENTS CLOSED. WINNER TO BE ANNOUNCED SHORTLY.

Thanks for the chance for the Fireworks pattern. School is almost out for me, so I'm looking forward to some sewing time this summer.

debbie said...

Sounds like Gran's new store is doing well. Glad to hear it. Your pattern reminds me of summer holidays! Thanks for the give away.
What nice thoughts on those who are most likely very disapointed by yesterdays nonevent. My thoughts were less thoughtful, but not cruel.

All is well in NH too! We did have several explosions of fireworks nearby, but I think they were more due to college graduation celebrations than surviving judgement day! LOVE your Fireworks pattern, and also the fabric you used in your sample!!!

Mary said...

We did have a small shake, rattle and roll here about 7 pm last night but we are still here. Love the pattern. Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy of it. I can understand why they are selling.

Marla said...

Even though I bought one from your Etsy Shop recently, would love to win one to give to my sister. I am still here too. I was in the movie theater watching the new Pirates movie in 3D when the time came and went for the predicted Rapture time. I figured what a way to go when watching Johnny Depp's gorgeous face in 3D!

Cathi said...

Me 1 Rapture 0! Very neat pattern

So glad the world didn't end, I still have way to much fabric to use up.

Kim said...

I'd love to win your fireworks pattern. I'm ready for a great pattern that will go together quickly!

Joyce said...

Still here too. And now I need a new project! Thanks for the chance to win one.

Guess I have to go to work tomorrow after all. ;-) On your pattern, does the middle star have y-seams? I love the way it looks.

Heartsdesire said...

Yes, we're still here on Vancouver Island and luckily I had not given away my stash, so let the quilting continue. Love your pattern, thanks for the chance to win.

taylorhw said...

As for the rapture, in Revolations it says that no man can no the end so I figured it wouldn't be the end. And this is one of my favorite patterns. I am so happy for you that it was sold out. Congrats!!

carol fun said...

No one I know is gone, which is pretty much what I expected. I'd love to be in the drawing for your pattern. Love that border -- and thanks for your sarcastic humor - it makes me laugh!

Laura K said...

I love this pattern and would love to give it a good home. Besides we all need blankets to keep us warm since the world isn't ending after all!

Pam said...

Nice pattern. I like your border.

sue said...

I'd love to win this pattern- the stars in the border would be fun to learn! Thanks

Gramma Terry said...

Love the pattern and am glad to still be around to make it. Whew!

AnnieO said...

I'm still here! And glad I didn't bother to shave my legs since there was no chance of me flying up to heaven anyway :)

Congrats on selling out your pattern, that is so GREAT! Sounds like the new shop is popular. I hope it goes gangbusters.

Yes, I would like a chance to win your Fireworks pattern. Count me in, thank you!

Such a sweet quilt, would love the pattern! We are all still here, too...

Quilting_Chris said...

Well, I am in good company then. I have read how much money has been sent in. No doubt to fund more billboards.

Love the quilt and would like to make one up for July fourth celebrations. It is very cute.
