Giveaway Contest Begins Today!

This quilt was made from my newest line of fabric out called "Eden". It's a really fun, textural flouncy thing that I have talked myself into parting with as the GRAND PRIZE for this contest!
Here's a few closeups for you.

Now...let's talk about the rules.
It's an easy one. All you have to do is leave a comment here...tell me why you want the quilt, leave me your blog or email address, and then post about it on your blog if you have one, and add a link back to my blog for your readers.

Please don't leave me multiple comments, unless you forget to add your email or something.
Commenting more than once will only decrease your chances of winning.

I'll let this run for about a week, and then I'm going to randomly choose the winner.

The winner will receive this grand prize quilt with a retail value of about $200+!!!
There will also be second and third prizes of pattern 3 packs.

OK. That's it! I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

Busy Days and Busy Nights

Sorry for the dearth of posts...not that you've been holding your breath.
I've just been really busy. You know how it is sometimes, when you don't even get your bed made, certainly not your more-important-than-that chores one knows what a home cooked meal is anymore, and your kids think there must be company coming if you put your makeup on.

So I'm going to show you a few little clips of what I've been up to, among other things, if for no other reason than so you won't think I'm just a lazy old couch potato. Computer chair potato, yes. But not couch potato.

This is just a hint of some of the designs I've been working on for Spring 2011. It's clearly way out there in the future, but not for me. I feel like I've already lived through this spring, summer, fall and winter, and I'm knocking at 2011's doors.
It's a really weird reality that's not really reality. As if that makes any sense.

Anyhoo...This is just a snippet for fun, and not meant to be a full reveal. I'm sure these will not appeal to everyone, but that's OK and to be expected. You can even tell me if you don't like.

Also...I'm gearing up for a giveaway! I have been working hard on these designs, and working on three new patterns, possibly four, and I'm sorta in the mood to take a little break and splurge on something fun for keep checking back for the giveaway coming up soon.

PS: I've been very troubled about Haiti. some of my dear friends are from Haiti, and their family and home have been devastated. I'm going to find a way to help out...maybe we can do something together?

This is a picture of us at Christmas, with our friend Sophia from Haiti. She is here going to school, living with her sister. She stayed with our family over Christmas, which was tons of fun. That was all before the earthquake happened. It's been really hard for her to be here, watching all of the news coverage, and the heartbreaking scenes of her home and her fellow Haitians in so much pain and turmoil. and not be able to do anything to really help. I'm not from Haiti, but knowing her and seeing her and her sister grieve for their country has really been upsetting for me. It has made the whole thing much more personal somehow.
I just wanted to share that with you.

Please pray for Haiti.
