Yoo Hoo, Linda!

Announcing my 900th Post Celebration Give-Away Winner!

This little pattern, Crazy Eights, calls for eight fat quarters, binding, backing, and batting. I thought it was very, very cute.  And I just happened to find eight FQs of batiks that seemed to go together and would make up in this pattern very nicely.

So I looked at the 64 comments left on my post, 64 people saying nice things about my blog and telling me why they come to visit.  And, by golly, they made me feel good!  I just loved reading your reasons. 

Then I said to my in-house Random Number Generator, Joe, "Honey, pick a number between one and sixty-four."  "Fifty-five," he said without hesitation.  So I counted back and number fifty-five in my inbox of comments said this:

Hi Nancy. I check your blog every morning to find out what's happening in your part of the world. I enjoy your quilts and your philosophy. Long may you write!!!



Lurking Linda

Lurking Linda!  I love it!  It doesn't seem as though you have a blog that I can refer people to.  Perhaps it is time?  Anyway, Linda, send me your mailing address, and your pattern and FQs will be in the mail at the beginning of the week.  You can pick your own binding, batt, and backing.  Enjoy!

Joe is obviously expanding his repertoire; first resident design wall and now random number generator. The man has talent!

Those fats are such a happy grouping & should brighten Linda's day. You have an eye for color m'dear.

Lurking Linda is a good friend of mine Nancy- She is the lady who taught me to quilt and we are both Alberta prairie girls.. She will love your giveaway prize as she is very fond of batiks. It couldn't happen to a nicer person. A big congratulations to her and to you for celebrating such as significant number of posts.
Warmest regards,
Anna
