I know I am late in posting this....


 I am having to walk around with toothpicks in my eyes.

 No, not because I am sleepy but because

 and I am sure you have all heard of this "Time flies like in the blink of an eye"............................

So I am trying not to blink!


 The Quilt N Queen is the winner of the Happy Town Fabric by Jacquelynne Steves for Henry Glass.


 Thanks so much to Jacquelynne for allowing me to give this wonderful fabric away and to all of you who took the time to come by and comment!


 I am still waiting for Sharon's address....Sharon...

 Come out!

 Come out!

 Where ever you are!!!

I finished this octopus quilt this week.  I know, another one???  I have a customer that likes to give these to her friends that are having baby girls.

I love how I did the bow on this one.


I have started another baby quilt and will show that when it is finished. 

  I went and measured the dog and cat quilts to see if they met the criteria of "Happy Town" Contest and it does not....so if you are thinking of making a quilt, make sure you meet the measurement requirements and have at least 80% of the fabric "Happy Town" fabric.


 Had company for Valentines, made homemade rolls, lasagna, cookies......I am stuffed like a tick. Hope you all had an amazing Valentines Day!!

Let us know if it works!! Love the Octopus!

Hi Barb! Go ahead and send your quilts in to the contest- at the very least they will be donated to hospitalized children! Are your measurements too small? Remember that the measurements in the rules are approximations, so if it is close it may still be OK. Also, we realize that people will have to fill in with neutral white/cream since there is none in the line- Your quilts look great to me!

I love your Octopus, I'm on an octopus kick too, I went to the post office yesterday and saw that they had octopus stamps and just had to buy a few even thought they were only for .03 cents, lol it would take a lot of them to send a letter.

I have been off the blogs for so long that I just want to say that I've missed so much of your life and am now exhausted after reading you!
