Is it worth putting binding on? And giveaway!

I quilted a top over the weekend and have to say that I think that is one ugly quilt!  I am considering not even putting a binding on it.  I wonder if a nice dog would like it to sleep with.  Maybe it would make a good chew toy for some nice doggie!


Just think if this adorable dog had that quilt to chew on instead of those shoes.  Don’t you think he would have had more fun, after all, shoes do correspond with foot odor!


Maybe that quilt would have saved that chair!

Anyway, I thought I would let my readers vote!  Is this quilt worth binding?  You be the judge! 


I will do what ever my readers choose for me to do! 

To place your vote, just look to the right side of my blog and place your vote in the poll.  Then leave a comment telling me you voted.  Why do you ask?  Because that will get you in the drawing to win a prize.  What is the prize you ask? 

This is the prize!  I was looking for something in my sewing room today and found this tablerunner I made.  So why not give it to someone to use because I won’t.  You really need to live with neat people to use tablerunners and placemats and I don’t see this family changing anytime soon.  LOL  And before I forget, anyone can enter but please only enter once!


Hope you are having a great day!

Late Valentine’s Day Gifts

I don’t know about you but I just can’t see paying so much for those pretty red boxes of chocolates for Valentine’s Day.  So it has kind of become a tradition in our house that we celebrate the occasion on February 15th.  I hit the Walgreens this afternoon and got all my kids and of course the granddaughter, those nice boxes of chocolates.  All at 50% off!  I even got the granddaughter a stuffed dog at 50% off.  So instead of paying $72 for those items I paid $36.  So that is $36 that I can purchase fabric with and do you think the kids care.  Not a bit!  LOL


So next year think about hitting the Valentine’s Day aisle a day late.  Even the flowers were 50% off.  In previous years, there was a larger selection to choose from.  Today I was still able to get some nice things but not like I had in the past.


So I hope you had a great Valentine’s Day!

Back Again!

I was talking with my dear friend Joanne on Friday and again on Saturday.  Joanne was nice enough to remind me that I hadn’t posted to my blog for a while.  So here I am again!

There hasn’t been much going on around here except snow, then a little more snow, then even more snow and a little ice too.  I have been working on using up some of my many scraps.  That sure will take a while!

I have complete 3 quilt tops but I haven’t gotten them quilted yet.  Still waiting on backing fabric to arrive.  As soon as it does, they will be loaded on the quilting frame and quilted.  So in the next couple of weeks I should have some finished quilts to show you.

Until I have some quilts to show you, head over to Joanne’s blog and check out what she has been up to! 

Hope you are having a great weekend!
