Getting Ready for My Stitching Friends

On Saturday, it's my turn to host our monthly stitchery gathering. I can hardly wait! I've been getting things ready: I've moved furniture (because our home is tiny, it's hard to accommodate six ladies and their projects without some adjustments and space planning. I've done some food prep (I want to spend as little time in the kitchen as I absolutely must). I've put together some little gifty treats (because my friends deserve them). And I've prepped a couple projects of my own to work on. Now I just need to get a good night's sleep and then take care of a few last preparations in the morning. They'll be here at 10 a.m.

I have another little giveaway treat for you too:


This is another of those projects I'm clearing out. At one time, I made a quilt top with nine Mary Engelbreit panels and then decided I needed something smaller, so I removed four of the panels. What's left will need to be taken apart and re-done. There are five panels (two designs) and sashing. If you'd like to adopt this project and you live in the US or Canada, please leave me a comment, letting me know you'd like to be included in the drawing. I'll pick a winner Sunday night to be posted on Monday's blog post. Good luck!

As for me, it's off to bed. It won't be long now until my friends arrive.

I would love to adopt this quilt top. I am a big Mary Engelbreit fan. I used to work in her store in Dallas about 15 years ago and I wish I had gotten more of her fabric. Now that I have a daughter, (I was in my 20's when I worked for her) I have a giant collection of her books, your quilt top would be a nice addition to our collection. MCSQRD29@aol.com

I would so, so love a chance to win this one!! My sister is a HUGE Mary Englegreit fan. I am constantly telling her about another project I need her to make for me (it's amazing that after five years or so she hasn't spit not ONE of those out for me - go figure!!). Anyway, this screams her and I'd love for a chance to surprise her with a project I'd made for her that I know she'd love. Thank you for the chance!!
