A Quilting Cozy Drawing Time!

Hello from a very chilly Wallburg, North Carolina!

I arrived home a few hours ago after a WEEK up at the cabin, and I must say it’s good to be back. 

There is a stack of Christmas cards to be opened on the dining room table.

I haven’t checked what food is available in the fridge – we’ll make do tonight, and I can hit the grocery store in the morning.

There is En Provence Mystery clue #4 to put the finishing touches on tonight, but before I do – it’s time to draw for our one lucky winner of the Quilting Cozy BUNDLE!

I’m so tickled that Carol Dean Jones gifted novels 1, 2 and 3 to one of our readers, and I’m happy to be adding to the box that will soon be on its way.

Will it be you?

Let’s see!  We had 4904 entries, that’s nearly 5,000.  SO exciting for the one person who’s name is drawn!


Who is #991 out of 4904?


Gina Meredith!  Congrats to you!

This will be on it’s way shortly:

It’s a Quilting Cozy Christmas Bundle!

Along with Tie Died, Running Stitches and Sea Bound, I am going to throw in 2 volumes of Quiltmaker’s 100 blocks along with a stitchery complete with floss and needles by French General, a binding tool, and a Fabbie Fridge Magnet!
Merry Christmas, Meredith!
There will be some more goodies up for grabs here on the blog VERY SOON.
If you missed the introductory post to Carol Dean Jones and her wonderful quilt-related mystery novels, you can read all about her and where you can find her books on our original post HERE

Thank you, Carol Dean for sharing your love of quilting with us through your great story lines!
Along the Greenbelt!
Mona and I met up for lunch on my way home from the cabin, and we finished it off with some fun antiquing and a walk for Sadie along the greenbelt.  It was crisp and cold and a bit windy, but the sunlight on the water made the prettiest reflection and I had to stop and take a photo.
What else did we find?
You’ll have to check Saturday morning’s post because tomorrow is En Provence Mystery Day with part 4 going live!
Have a wonderfully warm evening, everyone!
