Let's see what do I want to begin with tonight---
Old news--but hopefully some exciting news for about 10 of you out there????
Here is a basket and it has slips of paper in it--with names on the slips--my sister and I went back over the 3 posts I did on the paper piecing and each time someone commented your name went in the basket--some of you where in there 3 times--then we pulled out two names and they are:
the winners are: Joy McDonald of Joy's Quilts and Alice of Alice in quiltland--
OH YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOU WON---
well--each of you will get one of the paper piecing patterns that caused me such a mess in my sewing room!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
also in old news:
My thank you gifts for those of you who joined me in the August Christmas Challenge-- yep they are finally wrapped, addressed, and ready for postage--OH DEAR----Postage--I must go out in the back yard and do this--first:
Pick some money off the "money tree" only I think I forgot to water it---OPPS!!!!
And to Joy and Alice--I slipped your pattern into the thank you package--so you have two winnings in yours---surprise--surprised me when my sister pulled out your names and I realized I already had packages headed your way!!!!!
Now for something NEW--
I had read about a new needle that Clover had out--so in one of my orders I seen that the company carried them so I purchased a package of different sizes of Quilting needles--some of the larger ones for my friend to try and some with the smaller sizes I like to use and today I was working on some quilting so I got them out and tried them:
These have a very dark gold eye and you can really see it to thread it--much better than any I have used so far--the needle part is black and it does seem to glide through the fabric easier--so will i order more--answer is yes--(if i can remember where I got them in the first place--good thing i keep receipts)!!!!!
Ok I guess I have bored or entertained you enough for tonight--sweet dreams--or if you are just getting up GOOD MORNIN TO YA----Hugs, n blessings, Di
