This and That

Autumn is a difficult time of year for me to begin anything new,
and it's sew hard not to!
But this is when I have to focus on finishing up everything
I started during the summer to get ready to travel south.

Elm Street Quilts is hostessing Bag It!
and I love making bags.
Hop on over and check out all of Patty's tutorials
for some gift giving ideas.
Be sure to scroll through her posts so you don't miss a thing!
Maybe you will even win some excellent prizes!

If you hurry,
you can sign up for EasyPatchwork's
but the deadline is today.

I'd like to congratulate the winners
of my Free Spirit Fabrics solids give away.
The random number generator chose
Sheila, author of Sheila's Quilt World
and The Lueken Family 
to each receive a jelly roll.
Sunny (Quilting Dreams) and Lynn (Hey Boo)
were the lucky recipients of the charm packs.
Everyone has been notified
and some have already received their prizes.
I wish I could have sent a prize to everyone!
That said, it was so much fun, let's do it again soon.

I'll be back, maybe with some pictures!
Although life has gotten in the way, but on a positive note,
I have been sewing a little.

Have a wonderful, funderful day!

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

congratulations to your winners! I find it very hard to focus on finishing projects sometimes - sometimes I just want to start more tops!

Your fall migration ? - where do you go to? I have a vision of you flying off like the swallows with a back pack on

Doesn't it seem like you just traveled north a few days ago? Passage of time is wickedly fast these days.

I sure understand about not wanting to start anything new... or not being able to right now. You do have to look at what is "travelable." Your giveaway was lovely, and I'm happy for the winners who will get to start a new UFO! :-) Take care of yourself!

Good luck getting everything ready for your travel down south. The great thing about online friends is that you're connected no matter where they are. Send warm weather back home!!!
