Give Away Post-Read On!


Millie is having a giveaway of the best kind, a beautiful quilt of her own! I can never believe the generosity of some quilters as they give a labor of love from their own hands! The work is beautiful, and look at the embroidery. Not to mention that it is RED, oh, my stars! You have until next Saturday to join in. Better do it now!

I'm doing one of my favorite things today, I'm meeting with my two dear friends Beth and Ginny at the LQS because Ginny is looking for a sewing machine to carry to class with her. Ginny was my teaching partner for five years, and she has decided to join in quilting now that she is no longer teaching. I miss her at school (she is who introduced me to the school where I teach, 22 years ago!) but will enjoy seeing her at our quilt class.

Speaking of friends, I have a few of the bloggy kind that I've met online, and recently have won some of their giveaways:
  • Diane of Life Scraps Diane was parting with some Christmas "leftovers", you know, the fabric kind, that are non-perishable and non-caloric-!
  • Elin's Kreative Side Elin of Norway shared Christmas prints, too. I plan to tackle some Christmas sewing in July this year!
  • Bejeweled Quilts by Barb Barb is a jewel herself of the best kind. She's living in Samoa and finds time to blog and sew, and do volunteer work! She's sending a honeybun my direction, another "yummy" that won't get stale or add calories.
  • Becky of Patchwork Posse drew my name in a new membership giveaway. Membership to the projects she and her team are putting together, to share throughout the year, complete with patterns.
Now, this brings me to my first giveaway! Are you still there? I was not "pokey" about the Patchwork Posse, I had already purchased my own membership. If you have ever visited Becky's original blog, you could see why. This girl has some sweet, very creative projects of her own.



See what I mean? TOO CUTE! Plus, I didn't show what she calls "cranky quilts", pretty cute, but go see for yourself.
I'm asking you to leave a comment if you are interested, but if you are a follower already, you have a name in the hat! So, one chance for followers, and one chance for comments. That's 2 opportunities apiece, people! Join up and join in if interested. Please make sure I can contact you by email. . . .
We'll draw on Saturday, January 16.

Happy Quilting, Pokey
