giveaway times 3!!

not sure why these won't turn for me so you will have a sideway glance on two of them. they are turned in my picture part before i download/upload them and then when they are done they are sideways. oh well....

here is how the giveaway will go. you will have a chance to win one of these purses/bags if you want. you have three chances to win but you only get to win once. does that make sense? the polka dot bag is bag a

this is bag b

and this is bag c. if you like all three let me know in your comment and i will put your name in a bowl with others for that bag. if you only like one or two of them let me know by the letter of the bag and i will then only put your name in the bowl for that purse/bag. if you want to let more people in on this giveaway blog about it and i will put your name in again. but if you want fewer people to know (for a better chance to win) that's fine also. :):) i will pick a winner on wednesday.
i haven't done a giveaway in awhile and you guys are just GREAT!!!! hope you have a FANTASTIC day!!! :)

baby, baby, baby

another baby quilt!! i don't feel like i can get away from these. i feel like i need to do something BIG!!!! :):) i have a friend whose daughter is due at the end of this month so i wipped this up sat, sun and mon. it sure is bright but i like it. it's all fabric that i had which i LOVE!!!
the back is chambray and the red star binding. it's a fun baby quilt!!
hope chambray is spelled right otherwise my critic reader will correct me and tell me how dumb she thinks i am and that i'm better than that. to be honest i'm not better than that because i usually post quickly now a days.:)

like seeing an old friend...

my issue with my machine was a tention issue and it is completely fine now. it's like seeing and old friend that you haven't seen for awhile. you just want to send as much time as you can with them. sad i know but i haven't really quilted for a month and a half almost two months. that's a lifetime for someone like me! :) so i was able to finish my friend's baby quilt.
the stippling went great!!! when you haven't done it for awhile it seems strange at first. then you pick it right up again.

the binding is a GREAT stripe! i just LOVE it!!

these are fabrics that she already used (i added a few) but she already had the basic color scheme. she loved it! i think today i'm going to work on making some totes for some teachers. i'm just so happy to have the day off that i can do some sewing. have a FABULOUS day!!!
