Wednesday Giveaway

This week I’m giving away two lovely blue hand-dyed threads! One is a skein of wool/acrylic thread from In the Patch in Robin Egg Blue and the other is a #12 Painter’s Perle cotton thread in Wilhelmina (blue). They are so pretty together!

Leave a comment/reply on this blog post to enter the drawing. A winner will be chosen by the random number generator tomorrow.

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

Jackie J. is this week’s lucky winner! She will receive a wonderful pencil sharpener. I love a super-sharp point on my Blackwing graphite pencils and this 2-step sharpener gives me one. I also use this one for my chalk pencils even though I stop before the point is super-sharp.

If you aren’t Jackie and you would like one of these, click here. Also available in black.

Show and tell…

Here is another block from the virtual Bullseye class that I taught for the Golden Triangle Quilters in Beaumont. this is Jean Aguilar’s finished block. It graphic and stunning—well done, Jean!

I don’t know if the braided chicken mat in the background was use for inspiration, but it definitely could have been. They look very nice together on the table :-).

Thank you, Jean, for sharing your block!

Setting Queenie free…

Queenie, a gift from my DIL, Celia, has been floating in our pool all summer. Sometimes she got out of the pool and sunned herself on the waterfall wall…

But Queenie had outgrown our tiny pool and was yearning for grander spaces. My friend, Helen, came to the rescue and released her into the wild this morning…

Queenie is ecstatic in Helen’s lovely pond with the lily pads, turtles, and little fishes. She is the picture of happiness and I am happy for her!

PMBremer is this week’s lucky winner! She will receive one white General’s Charcoal Pencil and five different Blackwing pencils from my stash. I would use any of these on fabric. the General’s charcoal pencil is the pencil I use most on fabric. I use a light touch with these firm Blackwing pencils on fabric.
