Birthday Give Away

Bob at www.superiorthreads.com is having a giveaway in honor of his birthday this month. If you haven't tried their threads you should give them a look. I have started using them in my sewing machine and on the quilting machine and I especially love their So Fine for that. I have also used the King Tut for machine embroidery. Check them out you won't be sorry.

A Sunny Good Day To You

It has been awhile since my last post. I've been busy working on 4 customer quilts this week and making a list of everything we have to take with us when we head for Idaho the end of the month.

I have a baby quilt to make for a customer and get in the mail before we go. Here are the fabrics I am using. Care to guess what they will turn into?
Tomorrow I am going into town to sit and sew with my sister. She teaches a quilting class for seniors and I thought it would be fun to sew and visit. Hopefully, I will have a picture for you tomorrow so you can see what the fabrics grew into. Okay I am off to the quilt room to finish the last quilt for my customer.

If you have been wanting to help, but didn't know what to do, and you are a quilter you can go to http://ozcountryquiltingmum.blogspot.com/ and get the details on how some of us are helping out.

I Won!

Yesterday I recieved an email from Lise at the Chocolate Cat that I was one of two winners on her recent giveaway. My very first win in blogland. I seldom to never win anything so when I do excitement abounds. Stay tuned for photos.

On another note I quilted this T Shirt quilt for a customer this week.

She used a nice fleece backing. This was the first t-shirt quilt I have done and I'm not sure I want to do another one. I couldn't get enough tension on it to prevent all the wrinkles.

I'm off to get another quilt done so I'll talk to you later.
