Ding, ding, ding! We have a winner!!

First of all, I've been overwhelmed with the interest in our seven fat quarter giveaway. Momcat and I, as well as the other warm-blooded household members, have been blessed with many things. It's exciting to see that our crazy little piece of this world is bringing some fun and joy into yours. Thank you all for visiting. I think it really is more fun to give than to receive (although it sure is fun to win occasionally, too!)

For this drawing, Sundance volunteered to pick the name. Notice we needed a bigger bowl this time thanks to all of you lovely people. First she sniffs out the winning slip of paper.

Then she has to give it the taste test. Hmmm, is this person worthy?

Apparently, she's happy with her choice.

I know the picture is really blurry. Sometimes it's hard for the Pi-cam to keep up with Sunny!
So you'll have to trust me when I tell you the name on the paper is Swooze.

Congratulations, Swooze! According to Sundance, your name smells like catnip.

Swooze has a blog also. You can visit her at Swooze's Quilts and Tall Tales.

Don't forget...we'll have another giveaway next week.

Weekend Plans

Although it's a holiday weekend in the US for Labor Day, Momcat has lots of hunting and gathering to do outside the house. Tomorrow is Open House at Best Friends Quilt Shoppe. Right after work she's meeting friends for dinner. Then back to work all day on Sunday. Thankfully, we'll have her at home on Monday. I plan to follow her around all day so that she'll give me some laptime in between catching up on vacuuming, dusting and laundry.

Sometimes We Sew

Most of the posts lately have been of household happenings or promoting giveaways. Momcat spends a minimum of 20 minutes everyday working on some kind of craft project. Sometimes it's quilting, other times it's cross-stitching or needlepoint. Occasionally it's scrapbooking. And she's going to take a knitting class soon.

One of the things we're not so good about doing is taking pictures of projects in process. Especiallly since there are times that Momcat puts her own projects away because it's time to make a sample for the shop.

Although quilting is our primary hobby, I'm thinking we might start to blog about and picture some other creative passions as well.

Always a holiday for me,

You make sure you have loads of lap time over the next few days. While there start nagging your mom for pics of all her different crafts

Love and hugs Gina xxx

Looking forward to seeing Momcat's other artistic endeavors.

Cuddle Piwacket for me.

For a cat, you are not only clever, creative, but quite the comic genius. I must say I laughed hard enough over this blog that I need to go curl up on a quilt and take a bit of a catnap ;)
