 Over a year ago I joined Nina Lise at Mrs. Moen's blog for a "Pay It Forward" experience.  She sent me this darling wall hanging she titled, " Put on a Happy Face" that she made for me.  Those cute little button eyes have been looking at me every time I go into my sewing room.  Nina Lise even made the Smiley Face fabric.  I offered the chance to everyone to participate with me so I could make something for someone else...but I didn't get any offers because everyone was so busy.  Sooooo.....I decided to have a GIVEAWAY instead.
A long time ago I purchased some wonderful Asian fabrics to make myself a purse.  Well, I bought way too much and had enough to make another bag.  So I am giving away one of these bags to anyone who wants to enter.  All you have to do is leave me a comment.  That's it.....anyone and everyone can enter.  Please leave me a comment by midnight on the 26th.   Ten days from now on February 27th I'll draw a name from those of you who leave me a comment.  (Of course I'll add a few other little surprises too)

Life is good!

 Got the "Friendship" quilt back from the quilter.  I absolutely LOVE it!  Linda at Just Sew quilt shop in Highland did a great job quilting loops and circles in a goldy brown colored thread.
 Here's Tanner holding up his quilt.  He was so surprised and really appreciated that it had fabrics from several other quilts that I have made for the people in our neighborhood.  I even gave him a fabric pen so his friends could sign the light blocks.  I usually forget to put a label on the quilts I make but I actually signed one of the blocks this time.  I know I should always label my quilts but I'm just not good at that part.
 I've been noticing Chevron quilts and really like the way they look.  I drew up one using orange, blue, white, gray and yellow.  Below are some of the blocks sewn into half square triangles.  One set of 40 yet to sew together.  Then the dreaded squaring up before I can sew them together.  I think I'll love this quilt.
The Fall Twister quilt is at the quilter.  Looking forward to getting it back so I can put the binding on and give it away too.  I can't even begin to tell you how great it feels to see the look on the faces of these amazing youth when I show them the quilt I've made for them.  It's the best!
