Tulips, Pea Pods, and the WINNER is...

I am so happy to have participated in The Winter Blues Blog Hop Party! I was really looking to attract some visitors to my new site, and the hop exceeded expectations; my giveaway received 167 entries!
And I did not expect to actually do the hop, but of course I was lured right in by the chance to WIN one of the amazing giveaways, and spent many hours surfing around to admire all the quilting posts and photos. As a result, I did not get a whole lot of sewing done this week, but I am now following some amazing sites, AND I now have followers to help keep me motivated!
I did attend my quilt guild meeting and completed two tulip blocks. The pattern used is from Four Corners, titled Field of Flowers.  I chose to do just two small blocks that I will turn into something or other (wallhangings?) for spring: (That second one is just sitting on the orange stripe fabric)
While surfing, I came across this tutorial for a simple bag by Noodle Head. I found out it was my niece who chose the cute Pea Pod fabric that was included in my Birthday fabrics, and I figure it is a good way to give back to her since her birthday is coming up. I will find something nice to put inside-
So, time to announce the lucky winner of the drawing for my Heather Bailey fabric bundle:
Mama Said Sew said...
"I love your owl mug rug! Thanks for the giveaway. ;)"

 I did not have entry requirements so I was pleasantly surprised that so many quilters chose to follow me on GFC and through email. So pleased in fact, I decided to throw all the followers names into a bowl for an additional giveaway! 
 Couldn't quite part with any more of my Heather Bailey, but thought this is also springtime-ish, and likely to appeal to my new quilting buddies, so I cut 1/4 yard of each:
Two are by Sandy Hendreson for Farmer's Market, and the third is called 'Seedings'.

 And the winner of this 'follower appreciatation' bonus prize is:
Mary, who happens to be from my 'home' state, Washington!
Hope you like it Mary!
Thank you all for participating!


  1. Thanks again for being a part of the blog hop. Like you, I enjoyed hopping around the great blogs so much that I got very little sewing done this past week. Oh well, tomorrow is another day!

  2. Thank you for drawing my name. I enjoyed hopping and finding New blogs to visit.

  3. Thank you so much, Heidi! And thanks for sharing the link to that Noodle Head pouch. Our guild is doing a pouch swap next month and I think that's the one I'll make.

  4. How generous and congrats to both winners! I too spent a ton of time blog hopping and so glad I did! I am a follower of your blog and excited about what is store in the future!

  5. Wow, it was kind of you to draw an extra. You deserve good followers just for that!

  6. Congratualtions to the winners. Thank you for hosting the giveaway.
