Fall Into Fall Giveaway

Update October 15, 2010 -- The winner has been selected via and was notifed via email!

**Stay tuned, it's my birthday month and another giveaway is in store soon**

This has been a lot of fun to learn what you enjoy doing in the Fall. I read all of the posts and this talk of football, leaves, pumpkins and baked goods has me ready for all the wonderful things Autumn has to offer.

Thanks again, Debi, for organizing the Fall Into Fall Giveaway.


Welcome! Thankfully Debi arranged this gathering of quilting bloggers to celebrate Fall. Be sure to go here for additional giveaways to enter.

Autumn is my favorite season and I want to celebrate by giving away one yard each of two House coordinates to one lucky winner. You do not need to have a blog to win. So, are you ready?

1. For one chance to win comment on this post about your favorite Fall activity.

2. For a second chance to win become a follower. Then you must leave a comment to let me know.

One winner will be selected from all entries on Friday, October 15.

Sewing Along on Labor Day

It's Labor Day weekend! My plans include sewing for sure. So far I have worked a little on Carolina Christmas, a quilt designed by Bonnie K. Hunter of Quiltville and offered as a mystery quilt last November and December. I chose to use Bonnie's colors: greens, reds, background and tan rather than gold.

If you have not done a mystery, perhaps consider trying one with Bonnie. Have a look at her past mysteries (Carolina Crossroads, Double Delight) and you will find that they come out quite nicely. The bonus is they're meant to be sewn from scraps so for me it means creating a treasure from bits and pieces that I am not quite sure how I will use. I find that the great variety of fabrics makes for beautiful quilts. Hopefully you find some time to sew.
