Monday Morning.......

Here's a quilt that Rebecca from North Carolina sent to me.  She wanted the "Waterfall" (that's what I call it) stitching done.  It is a beautiful quilt with my favorite color - blue!!  Rebecca did  a wonderful job on her piecing and it looks like a great way to use up some of those scraps! Here's a picture...

Life has been busier than busy lately.  I've been checking on blogs but not commenting too often.  Our computer is in the family room and my sewing/quilting space is above the garage.  I don't get much stitching done if I'm gazing into the computer reading all of the fun blogs.  I miss commenting and the fun exchanges that follow.  I am working on getting a laptop to have upstairs with me, so as the HQ is stitching I can be busy "multi-tasking".  That's what I'm telling hubbie anyway.  lol!!  I've got a kid who's laptop is dead, and he's not using it, so I'm going to see if it's worth the money to try to bring it back to life.  Keep your fingers crossed for me!

It's been a while since I've had a fun giveaway, and I've got the wheels spinning in that direction.  I'm thinking something really, really fun for you that would be my blog related.  Care to guess??  Might be worth an extra entry or two, just to see who's paying attention.

Okay, gotta get the sheets on the line, and another load in the washer and eventually head upstairs and get some quilting done.  Don't forget to stop by the other blog to see more pictures of Rebecca's quilt:

Hi Joanne. Blogger has been giving me fits, so haven't visited you in a while.

Great quilt for you to work on, and hope your son's laptop is fixable.

I'm having a giveaway on my blog if you want to enter for a chance to win some fat quarters...fun.

Donna said...

I too love blue. The quilt is pretty.

You will have to surprise me with the giveaway. I am awful at guessing.

Brenda said...

I am guessing that you are going to quilt someone's quilt top as a give away.

Rhonda said...

Wonderful quilt and you're right great way to use up scraps.
As for the give away..... blog related, hummmmm, I'm stumped on that one.... but that's the way my brain is operating these days>

Oh sweetie I LOVE the quilting on this - my fave - gorgeous!! I say yes to the laptop, it's made a huge difference to me - freed up a whole table for me to cut on, instead of blog on. If you can't get that one to come back to life, check into refurbished laptops - that's what mine is, and it looks, acts and seems brand new.

I'm going to guess you'll offer to quilt the winner's quilt!

A giveaway related to your blog? Could it be some leftovers from all your renovations? A free trip to your house to see your quilting for real? Your kid's dead laptop?

Tangos Treasures said...

Beautiful!!!!
Your fun giveaway could be a old furnace?? 300 hot dogs?? A pile of threads?? LOL Maybe some new quilting software??
