Here I am in Simpsonville, South Carolina!
A mere 3 1/2 hour drive from home through drizzly rain –who would think a south westerly drive would have the temps climb about 5 degrees higher than it is at home in Wallburg, NC?
Let me tell you – for this cold blooded girl who hates ice and cold and snow with great disdain, 5 degrees warmer is HUGE! Especially if it pushes the temps from 45 to 50! 50 is nearly BALMY! So bring it on, South Carolina!
I am excited to be drawing for the winner of this fabulous issue of Quilt Sampler.
I had a great time visiting with the gals at Happiness is Quilting, and I know you will enjoy reading about their shop in the pages of this issue, and the quilt that they have designed for this issue is also going to knock your socks off!
I’m also SO happy with how the Linky for giveaways is going. The spammers aren’t participating! Your email address is safe, and it doesn’t clutter up the comments section and you don’t have to scroll through everything to get to the bottom before adding your entry. It’s a win win win all the way around.
So let’s do this thing, shall we?
For a 2011 magazine!
I love you guys, you get into the spirit! Ha!
Who is #618??
Wilma, I’ve sent an email to your gmail address given. Get back to me with your snail mail address and I’ll pop this magazine in the mail to you upon my return home from South Carolina! Congrats!
For those of you who love the giveaway anticipation – I’ve got something special going on in the MORNING as well, so be sure to come back and check out what is up for grabs!
This is what I drove through today. Yucky and grey!
Oh, that reminds me – Allison asked how to know when to use the word GRAY or the word GREY –in my book, and the way we were taught as children is that GRAY is a surname, as in Lord John Gray from the Diana Gabaldon series. GREY however is a color. One a NAME, one a color. Anyway, that’s my take on it!
My digs for 4 nights!
This is a driving trip for me, which means I can pack the van and bring what I need. I plan to get loads of work done on some looming deadlines while here.
I packed a folding table!
I love this table with its adjustible legs because it takes up nearly zero space in my car, but I can raise or lower the table based on whether I am sitting to sew, or standing to cut.
You can see I brought my 301 mocha long bed…she was begging to come along for the ride!
More green triangles!
And tumblers as Leaders & Enders this time!
I have one row ready to add on, and who knows, maybe I’ll be able to add a couple rows by the time this 4 nights worth of stitching time is behind me.
I didn't’ stop at Mary Jos today –I got a late start and with the rain I just wanted to push on. But watch out on TUESDAY! I’m planning to stop on my way home.
And with that, I’m off to sew! Have a great evening, everyone!
