For the wretched colds & flu's!!!
Yes, our whole family was down this week with a terrible round of colds, of course this is the byproduct of having children in elementary school isn't it? The upside of this silly cold was I couldn't sleep and yet felt functional and energetic enough to quilt ;)
My next project to get done is the baby quilt, I chose to do a disappearing 16 patch, I agree the colors are muted and darker than standard baby quilts but there is a reason behind my madness, this is going to serve as a background rather than the main focus of the quilt.
The piecing is done, all that is left is a border and the applique itself, I think that I may be able to get this done by the end of the week (cross fingers), I am doing a large applique on this top that my oldest daughter is going to help me with, I am not going to tell you what it is yet, I am going to wait until I can take a picture of the finished piece, as they say a picture is worth a thousand words!
(I have one stocking complete!)
Moving right along....
So I did mention, that my one year of quilting anniversary is coming up right? I thought with all the giveaways happening, I'd jump on the bandwagon and do an anniversary giveaway! However in looking for a random number generator, I discovered that it costs to use the publishable one ($5 per use... seriously?!) and it's difficult to find a free one that's reliable, understandable or allows you to use the print screen function. So sod it! No random number generation here, we are going to go completely out into left field and do an essay question that is completely ridiculous and amusing and I am going to have my children be the judges of the best answer. How much more random can you get? Not to mention, I am not going to require you to "follow" or tweet or do anything to promote my blog ;) Now the only rule is: only one answer please, so make it your best!
So your amusing and ridiculous question is: It's Christmas Eve and you manage to catch Santa stuck in the chimney in your home (or window.. whatever :D), and you have a naughty little thought while chomping on one of your fabulously baked cookies that you had left out for him just hours before... What is Santa going to have to bribe you with so you'll help free him?
My bribe for you to answer the question:
Some of my favorite Kona Bay Asian print fat quarters and one half yard of that absolutely delicious heron fabric!
Winner will be announced on December 16th :)
