Wow have yall ever had one of those weeks that you thought would never end!  I had went through 4 internet providers and finally have one.  After finally getting internet I pull up at my parents house and all my dad's hay is on fire.  So we have been dealing with that, plus the usual running around.  So anyway hello again!!!!

Winner and Finishes

Well it is Sunday and we have winter weather in the forecast again!  Shocker!  Mr Random # has Chosen :

Ohhhh it sounds like so much fun. I would sure enjoy having a chance at the box. It's been below zero here in SD all week. It was -17 yesterday and this morning I went out thinking boy it is warmer today. It was -7, so I guess those few degrees helped. It's supposed to get to a high of 0 today. Maybe next week we'll see the sun and get some warmer (20's) weather. 


Congrats and I have sent you an email.  Everyone be on the lookout I have another box headed my way! 


So I have a couple of finishes in this snow weather:




The turkey quilt is for a dear friend of the family.  The I am calling it a table mat, as it is too small to be a runner is for me.  I practiced some FMQ on it.  I need practice lol!  It was fun to make; a lot of small piecing.  Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Traveling Stash Box #3

I won traveling Stash Box #3 from the lovely Terry!   I have been totally stalking these boxes and this is the very 1st one I have ever won!!  I have been trying for over a year to win one here and there.  I have to say these are great ideas to shop and not feel guilty.  This is the box as I received it (today that is how excited I am):
Not the best picture, but natural light is on hold until above freezing temps, well and it was night time.  None the less you can see it has a lot of lovely items.

These are the items I kept out!

I want to make another jelly roll race quilt and thought these were super cute.  My daughter really wanted me to keep the St Patty fabric so of course I had to oblige. 

This is what I added to the box!  It is super full for the next person let me tell ya!

These are 1/2+ yd cuts, a few FQs, charm packs, and a 10" hexi template I loved so much I accidentally bought 2 so this is brand new never used still had the backing tape on it.  

So if you would love for this box to visit you then please leave me a comment.  How about whats going on in your neck of the woods.  We are having a winter like never before.  I even saw a post on FB from a local friend proclaiming Hell has officially frozen over lol!  We are also having rival school closing announcements with rhymes, songs, and funny stories.  We have missed 15 days of school I believe so far, and it is not looking good anytime soon.  So please if you are in a lovely warm sunny spot a description would be appreciated!  :)  

I will leave this open through Sunday the 9th, since we are expected to get another winter storm on Tuesday I can get it sent out Monday.  Again just a comment will do you don't have to be a follower or anything like that. Make sure I can contact you if you are the winner!  Please see the rules and guidelines.  US shipments only, sorry it is a heavy box and would break a persons bank to send it out of country!
