Giveaway Glitch....Aaaargh!

>> Thursday, October 23, 2008

Hmmm...for some unknown reason, my blog was not accepting comments. I've just fixed the problem (with DH's assistance, of course, I was stumped). It makes no sense to me, and it has happened to several other people--but not everyone. So the comments stop working on MY blog the day I start a contest. Go figure.

Thanks to everyone who sent me an email alerting me to the problem and requesting to be entered in the contest. I'll make sure your names get in the mix.

Now, all that being said, if you want to enter the contest, please leave a message on the previous post. Thanks, and sorry for the confusion. Aren't computers supposed to make our lives easier?

Apron Giveaway Celebration!

>> Wednesday, October 22, 2008

If you are visiting here via The Nester, welcome! Well, okay, everyone's welcome here, but if today is your first time here, chances are you came from the party over at The Nesting Place.

I've been toying with the idea of selling online for quite a while, and I decided the Handmade Holiday party was just the kick-in-the-pants I needed to get things moving. Since The Nester is so awesomely promoting crafters--and also to kick off the opening of my etsy store, I thought I'd spread the joy by hosting my own giveaway today. (And no, I am not giving away my 5 year old.)

Today's giveaway is for this handmade Child's Apron and Kids Cooking Gift Set, and here's what the set includes:
Adorable size 6 handmade retro apron--gotta love the cupcake fabric!
Kid sized cooking utensils: wooden rolling pin, wire whisk, wooden spatula, and three tin cookie cutters (about 2" across).

I use only high-quality quilt shop fabrics and threads, and have chosen high quality kitchen supplies as well. Be sure to visit my etsy shop for more apron gift sets and other quilty things.

To enter, leave a comment--one entry per person, please. If you put a link to my contest on your blog, you can enter twice. The winner will be chosen on Monday, October 27. Good luck!

Grandmother's Garden in Progress

>> Tuesday, October 21, 2008

I like to have a hand-work project to keep me awake while riding in the car on road trips. And last weekend was quite a road trip as we made the 6 hour trek to and from St. George, plus the all-day trip to the Grand Canyon! Here is my progress so far, and maybe in another 10 years, I'll have enough for a whole quilt :)

Jessi's New Apron

>> Sunday, October 19, 2008

Jessi is my little kitchen helper, and I knew she'd love a little apron that was just her size. So here she is modeling her new favorite kitchen attire. I love the fabric line--Woodland Bloom for Moda Fabrics by Lila Tueller, and I also love the sweet criss-cross tie in the back.

Wall hanging sampler for LQS

"If the Hat Fits" by Buggy Barn for Jayme A.

Baby Quilt for Keri J.

Table topper for Sandra K.

Autumn wall hanging for Bette G.

And the front and back of a nap quilt for Jayme A.

About . . .

Quilting is good therapy. It all started about 18 years ago when I had two little kiddos running around the house in diapers and spent my days as a stay-at-home mom. I soon discovered that I needed something more interesting than sorting laundry to keep me going. That's when I discovered the joy of quilting. Now, years down the road, I've added another kiddo to the mix. We've said goodbye to diapers and hello to driver's licenses and college (yikes!), and I have many quilts behind me. I now have a studio in my basement with a long-arm machine where I keep myself busy quilting for others and for myself, too, when I get the time. I hope you enjoy looking at what I've been working on!
