Fabric Du Jour & Prizes Too


Midwinter Red is finding lots of projects to be a part of!

Have you seen their sew along???
It's called Countdown to Christmas.
I had to start this one for sure!
I decided to use a little different color choice.

I went to my LQS and looked at my options...
and then decided on the taupe from Fig Tree's Avalon 
collection. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

This one, Debonaire, seems to be screaming out Midwinter Reds!

Of course this one stole my heart.
It's Nantucket, and apparently I am not alone!
Lisa suggested that I make it when I was trying to
decide between the two projects above.
Lisa, aka Stashmaster, wanted to make it too...
so we planned a sew along together.
Then Thelma aka Cupcake n Daisies,
jumped on the band wagon with us after a little convincing... only to be followed up
by Nicole, Ms. Sisters Choice
There is still room on the bandwagon for more!

I have mine cut out... and soon I will be able to begin sewing!

I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to post the winners for the Clover parade over the weekend like I thought I would do.

Here are the winners:

From the wonderful and talented Carrie Nelson,
she will be giving a "surprise package"
of something special... much like grandma going to the cupboard
and always pulling a great treat out of the cookie jar...
I imagine that she has the best stash ever!
However, I don't imagine that she is anywhere near
my age! 

The prize winners are:
From Sherri's parade:

From my parade:

Also, I randomly picked a winner:
I will be sending 2 charm packs of Scrumptious to...
Wendy at It Is What It Is blog!

Sherri picked a winner from her blog...
it will be a surprise something from her trip to Market...
and the winner is:

Congratulations to all of you who won
and to all of you who made Clover...
they were all beautiful!!!

Thank you, Thank you! Today is my birthday (48) so Carrie's prize package will be a perfect gift to look forward to! Her Schnibbles are so much fun to make, we win by just completing them!

Love that Nantucket pattern - it's been on my list of a while now and will need to stay there a little bit longer as I have a lineup the length of my arm that needs finishing, but it's still on my list. I'll look forward to seeing your progress.
