Quilting Gallery Winner

Like many others I participated in the Quilting Gallery Blog Hop.  I didn' t know how to do Mr. Random, and thus did it the old fashioned way.  I wrote all the names out on pieces of paper, and had my son pull a name from the bowl.  The winner of my giveaway is   NEEDLED MOM.  She has been emailed, and has responded with her address.  I will post pics of my methods tomorrow, along with a Canadian giveaway.....  Keep reading, and keep blogging!

Quilting Gallery blog hop

Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways

Yes, I have bitten this time to participate in a blog hop. It's how I got started writing my own. Last spring I read all the blogs that Michelle from the Quilting Gallery had for that hop, and I thought I could do the same. Writing on a continual basis was too much for me, and so the posts have been sparse. But I am enjoying seeing all the wonderful things that people make. Lots of quilts, bags, and other goodies are displayed among all. I've just finished participating in a swap thru fb, and even there, the groups have lots of new things I want to explore.

I basically do alterations and the making of new clothes as a business. Just last week I started and finished a skating dress for my 16 yr old. She didn't have a dress to wear for her dance test, or so she claimed. It was a simple dress made with some of the material I already had in my sewing room.  I've also included some pictures of things I've made the last couple of months

The skating dress: simple, but elegant on her!
Love making pj's of any size for family

A totebag made quite a while ago

I am also giving away some fat quarters for this hop.  This giveaway is open till the 15 of December and I will ship internationally. I would really prefer it if you also became a follower. However, it is not a prerequisite! Thanks for your visit on my blog, and have fun hopping the other ones.
