Better Late than Never

I know I mentioned a giveaway last month....but health issues got in the way.   Then we visited my son up north and I got involved in other things.  Enough with the excuses, right?

Well here it is.  As usual I forget what patterns I have and end up buying another and now I have 2 copies of a couple of patterns.  Your gain.


I must really love these patterns because I have 2 copies of each.  I will be gifting a pattern to 2 people. 

To enter leave a comment letting me know you are a follower and which pattern you would like to receive.  I will pick the winners next Wednesday.  Good Luck.


Each day I am feeling better and have more energy.  I prepped another block for the Old Voices quilt.  I'm also getting a couple of Christmas gift quilts ready for quilting.  I'm also testing some blocks for a magazine...can't say much more.  And am trying to clean my sewing room.  So it's good my energy levels are on the rise.


I got a new camera.  A Sony Cyber Shot.  It is very small.  I do have a bigger camera but I needed something smaller I can keep in the sewing room to take pictures of projects.  So I started playing with it.  In the corner of my living room I have an old wooden ladder.  I have some antique quilt tops hanging on it and some of my stuffed animals and dolls.


It's a little fuzzy...so I need to practice more.

In my sewing room I came across some scraps left over from an Accuquilt project.  I need to trim them up but I put them up on my portable design board. 


I think this will make a cute Doll Quilt.

Today the sun is out and it's 52 out...with no rain in site.  I think I will try and get out and take a walk.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day.

Hugs, Cathy

I'm glad to hear that you're feeling better. Your leftover scraps make a cute scrappy doll quilt. I have more patterns than I could possibly make in my lifetime, so I'll pass on the giveaway and let someone else have a chance to be the lucky winner. ;-)

Such good news that you are feeling better! I would love to win the Gathering Baskets pattern! Let me know how you like your new camera, we have been thinking about getting a smaller one, so much handier to carry around. Very cute quilt display!

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who likes some patterns so much, she buys them twice. ;-) I love the Spencer Museum Quilt. Thanks for the chance to win!

I'm glad you are feeling better! No need to put me in the drawing although both patterns are great!

Blessings and hugs!

I'm really glad you're starting to feel better hon, mine is still hanging on all these weeks later - just an annoying cough and drainage, but so tired of it! Mum and my oldest son are pretty sick, been over a week now, and I think they're going to need antibiotics - my aunt said most folks are getting Cipro for this. YUCK.

Congrats on your new camera, I love your ladder! And your pretty scraps. And those patterns, wow....those baskets are too darling!!! That's my favorite!

Have followed you for ages! I'd love to win the basket pattern - makes me feel good to know that I'm not the only one who buys duplicates! LOL

Glad to hear you are feeling better. Being able to work on some projects always makes me happier. Love the picture of the quilts and dolls, they are all so cute. Thanks for a chance in your giveaway, the baskets pattern is my favorite. I love baskets on quilts.
