A Winner and More Saltboxes

Well, DUH, I forgot on Friday to draw the name for the Saltbox Sampler quilt I talked about earlier in the week! Five people were interested, so I just asked the love of my life to pick a number from one to five and he said "three" which is Frances, who apparently doesn't have a blog. Frances, dear, please send me you mailing address and I'll get the two blocks and the pattern in the mail to you.

As it turns out, while digging around downstairs for something I had misplaced (yes, thank you, I did find it), I found the second saltbox pattern, Saltbox Seasons, pictured to the left. I personally think it is even cuter than the first one and know that I won't make it either. So we drew another number and it turned out to be Gari who quilts in the South and you really should check out her snail's trails. Gari, darlin', if you would like to have the Saltbox Seasons pattern, send me your mailing address and it is yours.

I also found a nice pattern for a checkbook cover that I don't think I'm going to use. At one point I thought I'd make them as gifts, but that point is past. I don't have a picture of it, but I think it is by Lazy Girl (it's downstairs and speaking of lazy girls, that is what I am at the moment). If you think that you might want to make checkbook covers, leave me a comment and on Tuesday (if I remember!) I'll choose a winner if there is more than one person interested.

I found another pattern to give away but I forget what it is called (it is very hot and humid Near Philadelphia today and is impacting my memory, my disposition, and my get-up-and-go). It really needs a picture posted, so perhaps tomorrow.

Hoping it is cooler where you are, and Frances and Gari, let me have your addies!

I am leaving a comment. Yes, Facebook is time consuming and frustrating. Bill will start the BBQ for us in 3 hrs. when it cools down a little - brats and a salad. Lots to drink!!! Diana

Nancy: Forgot to tell you, love your car and definitely the latest quilt. Oh to be that good - you do beautiful work. I am e-mailing with Kim, Julie, and a gal up here they put me in touch with, Carla. Nice people. Love,

I'd love to have the checkbook cover pattern--maybe I could get a start on Christmas early this year.

My weather is not fit for humans. Although, I should say I was just watching the News (always so uplifting) and apparently Texans are really in a desperate situation. At least we have water, no?

Nancy - I love that you are giving away patterns that you just know you won't be making....I keep looking at my ever growing pile of patterns and know that some of the earlier patterns I will NEVER get to - and even have quite a few patterns that I look at and think...."what WAS I thinking when I bought that!"....so I should get organised and have a clean up/out...hope your weather improves soon....I am enjoying every minute of winter here!

Nancy, what a fabulous idea. I take some of my patterns to my quilting guild for give-aways but usually I end up bringing them home, no one is interested. Well if I gave them away by mail I don't think anybody would pay the postage to send them back. I guess I will hae to start a blog and start a little fall cleaning. Pam K
