Colorwash Heart made in 2002- owned by family friends
I am happy to announce my two winners from the OWOH blogging festival. First I want to thank Lisa from a Whimsical Bohemian for creating and hosting this wonderful artisan festival for the past 5 years. It has been a wonderful event! She has some new plans ahead that will continue the spirit of OWOH but you need to read her post for information about it.
The past two weeks have been busy on many fronts - at home, at school and on the blog front...There were 870 different posts in OWOH and I attempted to visit them all- and I did manage to stop at almost all of them. Perhaps some of you stopped at some and made a new blog friend. I know that I met some new blogging friends on my journey.
And now to my two winners of the bracelets. I want to congratulate
Singtatter from Singapore
Electra from Calgary Alberta
I will get their bracelets finished off and in the mail in the next few days.
These two lovely ladies were drawn randomly using the random generator from 151 entrants. Thanks to all of you who stopped by - I want to go back and stop in on some of you who were so kind to leave a comment on my post now that the festival is completed.
This weekend is a long weekend here in Alberta as it is Family Day Weekend. I am looking forward to an extra day to get some sewing done- I have some curtains to make for downstairs so I am off to buy fabric tomorrow. The local Fabricland is having its Ultimate Sale so hopefully we will find some fabric that will work for a good price. I would like to get some baby quilt wraps made that I cut a couple of weeks ago. Those babies will soon be arriving and be needing those wraps. Perhaps I will get a start on the panel quilt... Lots to do and not enough time... Report cards loom on the horizon...
All in all it looks to be a busy weekend - seems like the weekends are pretty full these days- We have Melissa Etheridge concert tickets on Sunday evening with Serena Ryder as the opening act. We saw Melissa many years ago now and loved her concert. The tickets were a Valentine's gift from my husband.
Recently my friend Micki contacted me and asked me to be her Valentine star of the month. She sent me a set of interview questions and I sent back to her my responses. You can read the lovely piece by clicking on her name above. Thanks Micki for your gift of friendship and kind words.
We hope that the weather warms up too- the last few days, the thermometer has plummeted into the deep freeze... Will it soon be spring???? Rose taken by sister Denise in the summer of 2010
Stay warm and Happy quilting! I will return to regular blogging soon... LOL
