No, I didn't forget... 3rd Giveaway Day

Hi Everyone,

I didn't forget! Sundays are just busy around here. So that is why this post is later in the day :) Thanks so much to everyone that has emailed about contributing! I promise I will get back to you all if I haven't already. I was just a bit overwhelmed with the response, so now I am re-thinking how to handle it :)

I have been perusing new fabrics the last few days and I just had to show you this:


It is the apron panel from Serenade (Kate Spain's new fall collection coming in the summer) SO CUTE!

I sewed until after midnight last night but I took 7 hours off in between to visit with friends so it was only about 4 hrs of sewing yesterday. I finished all 34 blocks I wanted to make for my quilt but I am not sure I like them so will wait until I have them laid out to decide :)

The giveaway for today is Something from Kate Spain too a fat eighth pack of Good Fortune.

 Sorry the 2 1/2 charm packs are gone... :)

Gotta run :)

See ya tomorrow!

I am glad you got so much sewing done yesterday. The Kate Spain fabrics look gorgeous too- and I can't believe I am first to comment!

If you finished 34 blocks in one day, you are a machine. Sometimes laying them out is the only way to know how things are going to look. I can't wait to see it!

Happy New Year! I'm impressed that you finished so many blocks.

Mom C said...

Love Kate Spain designs. I tried to sew yesterday but as soon as I would begin someone would drop in or I had to run an errand so I didn't get done all I wanted to. But, tomorrow grandkids start back in school and the last of family visitors leave. I know I will miss them all terribly, this has been an incredible family holiday. But I am tired. So I wouldn't be surprised if I don't get hardly anything done tomorrow, I may sit and listen to the silence.
