Win a pattern and Fat 8ths!

Good morning, cyber friends!

It's time for another "thanks for following me" drawing!

This week it's Thimbleberries Scrap Patch Paddlewheel Quilt pattern(including wall quilt) and 5 fat eighths to get you started! The booklet has 6 pages of directions!

EACH of these is worth an entry into the drawing:
1. Leave a comment below and tell us one thing you look forward to doing know that spring is (MAYBE???) coming.
2. Follow this blog! (if you already do, remind me in the comment - if you are new, just let me know in the comment)
3. Mention it on your blog, Facebook and/or Twitter (Just let me know which ones you did! One entry for each!)

The drawing will be on Sunday!

Thanks for being a part of my blogging world!


  1. I'm looking forward to sewing up a storm this spring to get ready for the craft fair season. I'm also looking forward to being able to open my windows and listening to the birds while I sew!! Ah, fresh air, bring it on.
    I just love your blog and the craft ideas that you come up with help to refresh my mind.
    Thanks, Colleen

  2. I feel so guilty doing this since I won the last contest, but I am. I am a follower of your blog. And I will be so glad when spring finally arrives to stay! I love spring. It's pretty. Right now all my fruit trees are blooming, there are violets blooming all over my lawn and the neighbors tulips are up and putting on a show. The azaleas are ready to burst open and will make my house look all dressed up for a couple of weeks. And the weather is so agreeable in the spring. Cool but not cold. Warm without being hot. The grass is green, but it doesn't grow really fast like it does in the summer, so you don't have to mow so often. I like to get my front porch all cleaned up and take my embroidery out there and sit in a rocker or on the swing and play with needlework and watch people go by. You get to see all the friends you've missed all winter. Well, I could go on, but you get the picture. Hugs, Prissy

  3. Gee,Prissy! Thanks so very much for that incredible image of spring! We are all excited because it got just warm enough for the sap to run today! Woot woot! There is syrup in our future!

  4. I have just in the last few years started enjoying playing with flowers......

  5. I am hoping to get a lot of my projects finished this Spring. I will feel more like sewing with the warmer weather. I would love to win the pattern.

  6. I am looking forward to building up to a 28 mile bike ride on the Rails to Trails section called Tammany Trace in South Louisiana, doing some quilting and getting the corner of my quilting room (the one with all the UFOs) cleared up.

  7. I'm a nature photographer so I look forward to planting flowers and taking pics of all the beautiful butterflies and bugs that come my way.

  8. I am looking forward to Peeper Frogs! think I'll put that idea into a quilt for a little boy. Who doesn't love frogs!! I also want to get working on my veggie garden! can't wait for fresh veggies!
    I never thought I would like a blog but yours is awesome! thank you so much!

  9. Elaine, you are so kind! Thanks! I am participating in a CSA out of Fitzwilliam this spring/summer and I just can't wait for yummy veggies! I will have to do ANOTHER Blog activity with veggies in honor! :o)
