Friday the 13th good luck Blogaversary...

I can hardly believe I made it! Took me a long time to get to 50 posts.. so I thought I would have a giveaway for my few loyal readers. What better day to get lucky and win than Friday the 13th! All you have to do is leave a comment and share a quilting tip. I will put all names in a drawing and choose a winner on Sunday morning. This is what you get.. 2 Moda Charm packs "Poetry Collection" by April Cornell... and count them.. 13 spools of thread no two colors the same. Now who can't use thread?? I know many people applique so there is a variety of colors.

Tonight was the brown bag reveal at out Guild meeting. You had to put minimum 5 fat quarters with a holiday theme in a brown bag. You could tell the person what you might like in the way of a project. I got Halloween fabrics and in my last post you saw I made a Happy Jacks table runner with Kim's Big Quilting Adventure tutorial. Carolyn Holcomb was the recipent and she really liked it. I have a picture of the result from fabrics I put into my brown bag. I put fat quarters from a stack I purchased from Miss Geranium Take a Bough for Christmas. I LOVE MY RUNNER made for me by Loretta Frilot.








Last but not least.. I will be the best smelling girl in Havasu and wherever I go for that matter. My blog win from Deb over at Cucaroo arrived today. I will post pics on Saturday when I have more time to arrange the little perfume samples. I am soooo amazed at the very creative packaging these days. Thank you again Deb!!

Now that my brown bag is done I can focus on my summer camp project and my quilts that I will be hanging in my booth at the quilt show this year. Havasu Stitchers is having their quilt show this year. It's a great show and if you are in our town first of November please come by. I will post more details later. Also, we will be having our annual Quilting At the Lake event in January and had to increase it to 5 days. Shar Jorgenson is coming back this year and several other teachers. I will be posting details for that later if you are interested. It's so much fun!! I have been very lucky to move here and have such a great guild to belong to.

Keep Smiling!
Kim :)

Hey, well what do you know. Will I be the lucky first on lucky 13. Happy blogaversary!! A quilting tip - Keep your sewing machine out and at the ready, making it easy to take advantage of every spare minute for a bit of sewing time.

What a great way to celebrate the day, how generous you are.

My tip is to keep both scissors and a seam ripper right next to my sewing machine. It is great to make quick unsewing adjustments when I notice them so I don't have a bigger issue later.

Oops! Silly me--My quilting tip is to work on whatever project you are inspired by at the time... I always have several things going. I do my best work when I am excited about a project.
