I had to wait a bit before checking in to my room ---Getting here early, all there was was an ex-smoking room that was now a non-smoking room, and the smell was so bad I told them I’d prefer a different room.
I was told that the room had been cleaned to remove the smoke --- but unless you are a non-smoker, you just don’t realize that you can’t get the smoke out of mattresses, out of the carpet, the draperies, the walls ---it just never goes away, not ever.
In that case, I was told -- I needed to wait until some more rooms were cleaned so they could put me in a wing that had always been non-smoking. I was happy to wait!
And that is when I headed out for some lunch – and then down to the river. Photos of that to come!
Second time around, my new room is lovely with no smell of smoke anywhere, and I’m on the ground floor which is really nice with the amount of stuff I travel with!
So the point of this email is ----LET’S DRAW THE WINNERS!
3rd place goes to Denise!
Bonnie, I totally LOVE this block! It's so fun! Something about me . . . I'm having screws taken out of my foot tomorrow. It's my pedal foot, so I won't be able to use my machine for a couple of days, but then I'll be good to go! It'd be really nice to have a copy of the new 100 Blocks while I'm off my feet (the whole 'toes about your nose' thing). That way I'd be ready to start constructing all my favorites when I was back up and at 'em!!
Denise, your copy will be coming directly from Quiltmaker Magazine. Can you please send me your snail mail address so I can get it on to them? Congrats!
2nd place winner is MTN MAMA!
Big Bang Block is a great collision of shape and color!! Something about me....well I am a first generation Physician's Assistant which means I did it when it was brand new in the 70's before anyone knew what a PA was...I am a little older than you. I love to quilt, embroidery, and cook. I just lost my dear hubby of 31 1/2 years to a long battle with Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and MDS so life is full of changes and challenges. I am slowly getting my creative spirit back so BIG BANG BLOCK is just what I needed!!
Congrats! Please send along your snail mail address and I’ll be sending you a signed copy of 100 blocks vol 6, and a Summer Breeze charm pack!
Our grand prize winner is Christie!
Please send me your snail mail address and your signed copies of vol 5 and vol 6 will be on their way to you along with a Moda Summer Breeze charm pack!I'm married to a Puerto Rican ...and his loud & crazy family is visiting us for 2 weeks...my solace is my sewing room when we're not cooking, laughing, and eating!!! :)
Thank you so much for playing along everyone ---it’s been a lot of fun!
