Tuesday and tons to talk about. The last month of my House Sampler is Complete and the quilt is entirely piece, just no photo opts.
Maybe this afternoon. As soon as my Christmas sewing is complete, we’ll get this baby quilted.
Chelsey sent me this dishtowel from school. She said is looked like me. I think it’s almost too nice to use.

I won!!! I did, I won a complete quilt kit from Carrie Nelson at Miss Rosie’s Quilt Company.
The Pattern, Fabric and Even borders fabrics came. I even brought it to work one day to wish on. Made a tough day easier to get through. OK--- I just wish I had hand writing like this lady…Another thing to put on the “to do” list… practice penmanship.


Lastly, My latest Purchase, The Crow napkin rings. Perfect for anytime of the year. They were mail-ordered from Farmhouse Woolens.
Even though I’m on a budget, some things you just can’t live without.

I’m off Thursday for a long weekend to visit my folks in Louisiana. Don and Ransom will be “Bachelors” roughing it without me. I can’t wait to see my folks.

The link for the crow napkin rings didn't work for me - maybe it is my computer.

I love your quilt - sooo cute and that dish towel - well I think some towels jobs are just to look pretty and not be put to work - that's one of them. Congrats on your win - such pretty fabric and your crow napkin rings look wonderful :) Have a wonderful and safe trip.

Lucky you winning the quilt kit. I like most all of the Miss Rosie patterns.
Your houses are wonderful! I told you on the previous post that I like those patterns and have made one of the house pattern quilts up. Just not what you are working on.
Those crow napkin rings are calling to me!

The fabric you go is gorgeous. I bet you can't wait to get going on that one. That is one of my favorite fabrics the soft florals. Show us the finished product. Good Luck.
