About Becky Goldsmith

I am a wife, mother, grandmother, quilter, teacher, and author and I do my best to sprinkle happiness wherever I can.

Wednesday Giveaway

This week’s winner is Lisa G Benson. She will receive 3 scissor charms that are mostly red and white. There’s a ladybug, a cupcake, and a bird that you can use to dress up your scissor, rotary cutter, a zipper, and more!

If you are not Lisa, you can find more scissor charms, plus a movie that shows how you can use them especially with serrated scissors, here.

I’ll be back with another Giveaway next Wednesday. Until then you can shop for all sorts of sewing notions, books, and other fun stuff at pieceocake.com!

Wednesday Giveaway

Kay is this week’s Giveaway winner! She will receive this Clover Pendant Thread Cutter. You can wear it as a pendant and use it to cut threads or turn it upside-down and insert the stem into a spool. It’s the fastest way I’ve found to cut apart chain-pieced units!

If you are not Kay and would like to have a Pendant Thread Cutter of your own, click here.

Kathy Swanteck sent me this photo of her Searching for Beauty Quilt. I love it! Thank you, Kathy, for sharing it with us :-).

Making this quilt brought me joy during a challenging time. It will live in California.
The day after I started this quilt I was talking to my son in California. He said he and his girlfriend would like a quilt with viruses all over it. I laughed since I just started one. So it is going to live with him 😃.

Kathy said she followed my freezer paper appliqué technique, using a glue pen and that it worked great. Yay!

Wednesday Giveaway

Allison Church Bird is this week’s winner! She will receive a wonderful 2-Step Pencil Sharpener which creates a perfect point using a two-step sharpening process. Sharpen the wood in the first step and then sharpen the graphite core to a long, fine point in step 2. The clear lid opens for cleaning. The sharpener comes with two replacement blades and an automatic brake that prevents over-sharpening.

Kim Jasko sent this photo of a quilt she recently finished (for an anniversary milestone) using what she calls ‘Becky’s Birds’, designs from our book, ‘My Whimsical Quilt Garden‘. Truth be told, the birds are more Linda’s birds than mine :-).

Kim plans on displaying her quilt every May.

The base design is from Amanda Murphy. I think this is an excellent mash-up of two different quilt patterns. Well done, Kim, and thank you for sharing!

Wednesday Giveaway

Gayle W. S. is this week’s giveaway winner! She will receive a set of three #12 hand-dyed Painters Pearl cotton thread packs. This thread now comes on spools and these are the last of the packs I have that are skeins.
