Down to business. I'm going to add to the post as the day goes along. Well, that's my plan anyway.
True Up is having an incredible giveaway of 10, yummy, half-yard cuts (yup, read it again...10) of a line called "My Favorite".
Sew...head on over for a chance to win!
"Button. Button. Who's got the button?"
A Fish in the Water is having a buttonlicious giveaway.
Loot! I'm not sure which ones she's gifting away...but aren't these lovely. Buttons and marbles are the coolest toys in the world. Not the safest, but the coolest!
Giddy for Paisley is giving away one of the darndest, cutest patterns. KT, you know I'd love this one! OOPS, maybe I'm not supposed to read through the other comments? One in there from KT...I think about me? LOL
Sew, check this blogs out for chances to win fun fabric and fooferall.
Chapter one of the blog done.
Check back later for chapter two!

This is my Friday Finish. Amy hosts a weekly "kick yerself in the pants and get something done" motivational button...it's on the side under "Sew and Tell Fridays". There is a talented group of women who participate and each week they wow me with what they have managed to accomplish above and beyond surviving the week.
Check it out and make sure to visit these ladies and let them know you visited!
Mine is a bit of a disappointment. Well, half of a disappointment. .5 of a disappointment.
I really like the front of my STUD (you should've seen the look on hubby buns face when he heard KT and I discussing this!).
Not much changed since the last picture, but I added the small, white binding. I had a hard time finding a fabric that didn't take away from the busyness of the quilt itself and so settled on white. I quilted Tuesday and Wednesday and put the binding on last night.
It's just a swirly, stipple quilting pattern. Hubby dove calls this one "Aztec" and wonders why I'm only making quilts and things to give away...he wants to keep them all for us! Wah ha ha!
Here's the problem:
Wonky. Big time wonky on the back. When I pin basted the blasted thing, it was perfectly straight. When I flipped the sucker over to add the binding...wonkiness supreme. The quilt is supposed to go out November 1st. Would you send it as is? Email my swap bud with pictures and offer to do another one for her? Take all your savings, hubby (maybe kids if they're not fussin') snookums and fly to Tahiti and pretend the rest of the world doesn't exist?
So glad we're done with this:
but so happy to have spent time with
the cutest keeper in the world!
