Thank you so much ladies.
Do you see this wonderful stack of presents. This is why I love having a birthday give away. Many of those presents were made this month because I had a reason to take the time and make them. I can only use so many notebook covers but I love to make them so much. I loved the process of making a throw pillow cover but really only needed two. Since I had a reason, I joyously made two more for you. The same goes for a zipper pouch and a couple of pin cushions. Oh, and the quilt; that top had been completed for months. I fell out of love with it and was ready to find it a new home. Because I had a reason to quilt it up, I took the time to try a new technic for me that is time consuming and laborious. I fell in love again with that wonderful line of fabric as I sat sewing for long early morning or late night sessions, inspiring me to make a few items for myself that I really didn’t need but have added joy my life.
I am so thankful for your lovely words of support this month. While I didn’t explore a ton creatively with my camera, I learned a lot just taking photos of my gifts. All month it was off automatic and I am feeling much more comfortable with my camera and my editing software. OK, OK, I will get on with the winners, but thank you so much for making this a wonderful month. I have improved my sewing and photography skills and learned a ton. Thank You.
The Quilt –
When I finished quilting I counted up all my quilting lines and I had 189. This number surprised me; I was expecting it to be less than the projected 176 lines. So the winner of extra 10 entries is Jane with her guess of 192; the closest one. When figuring out winners I first added Julie’s extra 20 entries into the mix then I added Jane’s. Next I, headed over to the Random Number Generator and come up with a winner…..
Winning the quilt with one of her extra entries. Congratulation!
