Lorene sent me the link and I started to drool, thinking of fabrics I would like to use and then it hit me.. it is a swap. I am going to be lucky and make a new quilting friend(s) and exchange beautiful Pretty Pouches too.
If you would like to join in, please email the hostess and I am sure she will be excited to have us all playing.   http://www.lilypatchquilts.com/2013/08/pretty-pouch-swap-sign-up.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+LilyPatchQuilts+%28Lily+Patch+Quilts%29

Good day,
It kinda feels like the moment you are opening your last gift and know its going to be a full year before another xmas morning.  So... we are going to kick it up a notch... See my grandson picked the number 100 and my husband goes thru the numbers and says.... Hunie...ya got two winners...  See Lj and Bonnie Pfrimmer. Imagine 99 and 101 where picked. Yeap smack dab almost kinda in the middle.
I think it will be fun to make another pillow but will need to extend mailing date until Friday.
Ho Ho Ho....snowmen will be in the mail and hope they don't melt... :)
What have I been doing for fun?  I started both grandkids birthday quilts and made a batch of tortillas yesterday. But I believe we have a tortilla bandid...as they are gone. So, I will be making a new batch of tortillas today and enjoying a peaceful day...
congrats to both winners and stop back by to see my simple joys and creations....

Happy Every Holiday to all...

Thank you to both of our great hostesses  as this just couldn't happen without their great love of sharing and caring. I am so thankful that I got to play too!
 I was able to create Amy Bradley's penguin quilt and these lovely penguins live in Las Vegas, so they just had to have a bold border with snowflakes that would not melt. I just love Nancy Halverson's books and was so happy to be able to make Fa La La La and the snowmen pillow from her latest book. My red pillow definitely will reflect our mood as one side reads Naughty and the other side reads Nice. The square snowman pillow has minky for his face and is oh so fun to lay on. I love textures!  The last pillow is a red poinsettia and I found the pattern at http://thecraftyquilter.com/2013/01/christmas-once-a-month-january.

My final quilt is a Sock Quilt.

Thank You for stopping by... I am also doing a drawing... please post under comments and pick a number between 0-200 but we all know that we are number 1 and a perfect 10...so please do not pick 1 or 10. Also do double check that your number was not already posted. I know its a bit of work but well worth it.   My grandson will pick the number and then do the math of who is the closest to the number he picked.  I love to have him use math in real life when ever we can. Oh and to share my drawing gift... it is Nancy Halverson's snowmen pillow. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.

P.S.  You just may see a few of these items on Loveable Lorene's blog alittlebitoflorene.blogspot.com ...at times we can get into a lot of mischief.... but alas.... Santa we can explain.... we love to play with fabric and friends... really!

                           Hope your having  a peaceful day and enjoying surfing the web with Santa..... Hugs  Vicki

Super Heros

Oh my... I have to admit that I have Super Heros... I am in love with Gru from Despeciable me...he just gives so much love to those little girls. Then how could I not idolize Iron Man as in Advengers he was finally ready to give his life for the world. Thor saved earth and still had unconditional love for his brother.  Oh and then there is the FBI agent that gave his life to take on Loki and he had no super powers other than a love for man kind.
Today, Lorene sent me a link to  http://wooliemammoth.blogspot.com/2013/08/i-found-it.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+WoolieMammoth+%28Woolie+Mammoth%29  
I love to sew and some days just can't squeeze it in but.... alas my super hero's know best... I just have to listen to them for now on.....

Happy sewing to all,
