Witch "Wilma"--the Buttermilk Basin Cat Pattern

As promised, I selected a winner for the pattern tonight.  And the winner is Frankie!  Frankie said, "I'd love a chance to win that darling Halloween kitty! Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday and I love making things for it. Your post inspired me to find that owl pattern as well and I'm definitely making it so thanks!"

My rather unscientific method of picking a winner this time was to close my eyes and move my mouse around and around the screen, eventually clicking on something and opening my eyes to see what happened--the email that opened was the winner.  That was kind of fun, but I think my mouse is dizzy now.

Hubby's having carpal tunnel surgery tomorrow (by the time you read this, it will be "today"), so I'll be off with him for a couple days, making sure he can get up and down--with his muscular dystrophy, it's going to be particularly difficult.  Hopefully I'll be able to find some time to spend in the Sweat Shop while I'm home.  I'm also getting a bit itchy to break out the Halloween decorations and get busy in the house.  Maybe it's all that back-to-school rush hour traffic we've had the last week or two that's put me in the mood for fall.  It's always hard, though, to get super excited for Halloween when the temps outside are in the 90s!  So maybe I'll start on that, or maybe I'll put it off for another week or two.

Frankie, please email me your mailing address and I'll get this pattern in the mail to you.  Thanks, everyone, for playing!

I hope your hubby does well with his surgery and the recovery isn't too bad for him. Thanks so much for the chance to win that darling kitty -- I'm excited about that!

My oldest son had carpal surgery and I wish your husband a good recovery with lots of pampering.

Just sandwiched my 16 block Sunday Sew Along churns. I decided on sashing rather than small squares. Am trying to finish up some UFO's as I want to start on the Confetti runner from SET THE TABLE book using similar batiks. You can get a peek inside at Amazon.
Thanks for the Snowmen pattern that arrived safely!
