Schnibbles News!!

Hello again.. and before the weekend! I have some great news. I joined the girls over at " A year of Scnibbles". I thought it would be a great way to meet some new bloggers and stay connected with some bloggers I already know.... I saw they had some quilt shops featured for the progam and wondered if they could use another one. So, I wondered on over and asked.

GUESS WHAT... they said yes. I am honored to be a featured quilt shop for the Schnibbles club.

Winter White is our first project. Every month we are going to have a parade of finished projects. This is going to be so much fun. I believe we have 80 gals. I am looking forward to seeing all the different looks as we won't all use the same fabric. I will be featuring the pattern, kit's with pattern, or just fabric alone each month.

Thank you Sinta and Sherri this is going to be alot of fun!

Keep Smiling!

100th Post .. 2 posts late....

Would you expect anything less.. LOL I just realized it's my 102nd post. I should give you a little history... It all started with this.

June 2008... Miss Geranium. Yes, Miss Sharon, it's all her fault. I was one of the no blog club and just read everyone elses'... now and again I would comment. I decided to join her cupcake swap because it sounded so much fun. Sharon asked about my blog... well, I didn't have one. Of course you must know what came next... yes, she said you can do it and the rest is history. I don't write in it daily and sometimes not even weekly. But, I am trying to turn a new leaf as they say. I plan to update you as much as I can on whatever I am doing.. I hope you will follow along.

So. . . as my DH would say... "With that said"... Let's have a giveaway. Since I just realized I passed my 100th post and this wasn't planned I don't have anything together yet.. I will put something together and post a pic on Monday with the name of the winner. Just leave a message on this post about how you got started blogging.

Have a great weekend!

Keep Smiling!

Fat Quarter Shop Giveaway by P.S. I Quilt...

A few days ago Rachel at P.S. I Quilt had a post asking what would you buy at the Fat Quarter Shop if you had a $50 gift certificate. There were 163 posts of what would be bought at FQS. Today Rachel has a new post for a chance to win a FQS gift certificate. Evidently the Fat Quarter Shop heard about Rachel's post from the other day and they are donating a gift certificate. That's awesome. To get one entry Rachel had us post a message on her blog telling what color combinations we like to use in quilts. We get a second entry if we post this contest on our blog, a third entry if we become a follower of her blog. So go check out Rachel's blog and post a message, you could be a winner.
Pincushion Update: I must announce that almost half of the swappers did NOT send out swaps. I am in the process of Angeling out so that nobody gets left out. Please watch your mail and let me know when you recieve.
Keep Smiling!

Bunches to Blog About....

I have not posted and so much to tell you .. first I want to show you what came in the mail from the F R E I N D S swap I was in... Cailtlin Thank you so much!

I just realized looking at the pic that the book she sent me is missing. There were lots of goodies, some homespun fabrics, embelishments, cute handmade gauze bag, notecards and tablet, a vintage crafted notebook and the book missing is soldered trinket jewelry. A friend of mine has all the tools and we have talked about getting together and she will show me how to do it.

Carol's Crafty Creations had a giveaway.. I won this cute pincushion along with a generous sample of her new favorite filling. Crushed walnut shells. Thank you Carol! I think I will be using these from now on. You can get a bag a Petsmart. Probably at your local feed stores also.

The Pincushion swap deadline was July 18th... there a few I have not heard from. Please email if you haven't sent out. I will be posting all the pincushion picture in one post this week. I have seen some really creative work out there. Everyone did a great job so far.

Also, I have some pictures from Summer Camp. We had alot of fun in Laughlin. there is one week left for the Craft Shuffle. Check it out for some fun.

Keep Smiling!
