THANK YOU to everyone who joined in the Sew Mama Sew giveaway party last week. I was so excited by the response to the patterns and charm packs I am giving away – there were 277 comments! Thank so much to Meadow Mist Designs for sponsoring the patterns – if you did not win here you can get your own copy from Cheryl’s shop.

And now on to what you want to know! The winner of the 3 PDF patterns and two charm packs is #173 Linda!


Congratulations to Linda – I have emailed you!  I appreciate everyone who took the time to comment and welcome all new followers.  It’s a pleasure to have you visit the blog and comment – I hope you enjoy hanging out here.

As promised on Monday I have made some progress this week in the sewing room. One of the quilts I’m making uses flying geese to create a pinwheel block. This is the first time I have made flying geese and I really like the way the blocks look. Here is a progress shot of the trimming and an assembled block:

Flying Geese Pinwheels

Hopefully I will have this top assembled tomorrow and have a finished flimsy to share on Friday. “Lord willing and the creek don’t rise.” Have you heard this saying? This is something my Dad used to say all the time and it always makes me think of him. Okay, sorry for the sidetrack.
