WIP Wednesday - 12/19/2011

The only thing I have worked on this week is my Supernova.  It is so close to being done I can taste it!

I made my November Quilting NewBees block:

I also won a prize!  Woo hoo!

This jelly roll of Summer House by Lily Ashbury was given away by Tristan at C & T Publishing.

Pardon my unquilty stuff...

I tried a new recipe that I want to share with you.  I made Red Velvet Crackles!  Aren't they pretty?  Tasty too!

You can get the recipe at for Mommy.

I spent the week at work pulling all of the old computer equipment and getting it to the loading dock for removal.  Wanna see?  Too bad.  Here it is anyway.  :)

Giveaway Day - 12/12/2011

*** Giveaway Closed ***
 Winner will be announced tomorrow at 6am.

Hello! {waves frantically} Welcome to all the hoppers from Sew Mama Sew!  If you didn't come from there, you should go there to check out all the giveaways on the blogiverse.  It's a smashing good time! (now imagine I just said that in an Austin Powers voice...better, right?)

First, a little about me.  :)  I am a wife of a firefighter with no kids.  I work full time and I love to quilt.  I have (in just the past few years) discovered that quilting is my creative passion.  I started my blog last year on order to share with friends and family.

Okay, okay.  On to the fun stuff.  The giveaway!

Today, you have a chance to win enough fleece(?) squares to make a baby quilt.  There are 90 squares and they are each 4.5 inches square.  They could be flannel.  I've never been good at remembering the fuzzy ones.  LOL.

I will not require that you become a follower, but it sure would be nice!

All you have to do to win is comment on this post with your favorite quote of all time.  No quote, no entry.  Simple as that.  The giveaway closes on December 16th at 5pm EST.  I will draw a winner at that time and post about it on the 17th.  The winner will have 48 hours to reply to the email or I will have to draw a new winner so that the prize can be shipped by the 24th.

This giveaway is open to ALL people.  I don't care where you live...except for the moon.  That could get expensive.

Good luck to all!
