a friday giveaway!

in honor of april being almost over, spring being finally here and today being a very fine maine friday, decided to have a little giveaway.  the pattern came home with me from retreat last october and the selvedge needlecase was made by me.  if you wouldn't mind receiving these 2 frugal gifts, leave a comment and i will draw a name on sunday morning.  the wallhanging is 30.5" square and is paper pieced if you want to know.  ****  yesterday was the first time i was outside without a jacket, always a good thing!  doing some cleaning today, getting out my little window fan and some sewing of course!  am prepping the binding for autumn change in anticipation of a soon finish.  then i think i will finish quilting the last border of the amish center diamond before putting big quilts aside for warmer weather unless i can squeeze one more in before it gets too uncomfortable.  **** in the interest of full disclosure have spent just over $700 on fabric, workshop costs and all quilt/sewing related items so far this year.  if i didn't count the workshops, it would be frugal indeed, so not bad at all!

  1. Throwing my name in the hat! Love reading about your UFO progress. Did you see Judy Ls parade of UFOs? I need to post for that.

  2. Thanks for the opportunity to win. I have been admiring the selvedge projects quilters are making and wishing I had saved some to make my own. Maybe I won't have too, if I am lucky.
    I love visiting you in the morning, getting my day started in Maine, so to speak.
    Make it a good day.

  4. You don't need to include me in the giveaway, Grace (I have the needle case, which I love), and I don't need the temptation of the pattern, though it is very pretty.
    Just wanted to say that I am impressed that you have kept track of all your quilting expenditures for the year. That is something I try not to think about, though I doubt I have spent much more than you. I just don't like to ponder the amount and guilt myself with what I "should" have done with the money. I'm good at the guilt game. : )

  6. Please enter me in Sunday's drawing. I remember these wonderful days from when I lived in Belfast, ME, and oh, how I miss it. My blog header is a photo of Belfast bay.I would move back in a heartbeat if only i had the funds. Even though born and raised in PA, my time in Maine was like being in Heaven. Maybe some day it will be in the cards for me to move back.

  10. Hi Grace, Glad it's finally warming up in Maine. We're supposed to have a warm weekend in Upstate NY for which I'm happy about. Going to get out and do some yard work today so don't know how much sewing I'll get it. I enjoy reading your Blog and thanks for the chance to win in your giveaway.
