Last Giveaway in Birthday Celebration!

Giveaway #7

Thanks to everyone for helping me celebrate my birthday. Are you ready to participate in my final drawing? Remember, you're still eligible to enter the drawing even if you won one of the previous six prizes.

I think I saved the best for last.  I'm giving away this jelly roll friendly quilt pattern, a Garden Inspirations jelly roll by Moda, and a packet of Christmas applique designs!









To be eligible for the drawing (which will be held on Wednesday, October 21, 2009 at noon EST):

  • Leave a comment on this post for 1 entry.
  • Be a follower for a second entry.
  • Post on your blog for a third entry.
  • Link back to me for a fourth entry.
I wish all of you good luck!



CONFETTI

Here's what we're working on.




This quilt is called Confetti and is from a terrific book called Four Patch Frolic.  The quilt calls for 98 four-patch blocks. You can see all of them in strips here on the sewing table. The next step is to even up the strips, then put long sashing strips between the rows.

I'm trying to get Momcat over here to iron. I've found that the ironing board provides me an excellent strategic supervisory advantage. Plus, it keeps me away from you-know-who (picture below mine, also in the sewing room.)







Staying in Shape

I may have mentioned before that Maggie is half-boxer (her other half is black lab, which makes her a full mutt).  We all know that boxers do all kinds of things to maintain their physique. Running (Maggie is great at that), jumping rope (she's an expert at jumping on people and her doghouse), and using the punching bag (named Philip). Here's how Maggie does her push-ups. She's developed her own clever way of getting that upper body strength just so.


 


(Note from Momcat: Piwacket is high on catnip again. This is just Maggie's funny way of getting off the couch. She drags her upper body down to the floor and looks almost boneless in the rear as her back legs follow her to the floor.)

Have you created for 15 minutes today? If not, get to it!

Hugs,
Piwacket and Linda

Thanks Pi for letting Momcat save the best gift for last on her birthday giveaway.

I have been a follower of you for a long time, and would love a chance to win these great items.

Happy Birthday. It's nice to see someone else who celebrates birthdays for a long, long time. My celebration usually lasts between a week to a month, depending on the energy I have. And this happens to be my month as well (the 31st). So keep it up - someone has to lead the celebration!

arlette said...

I must say, Piwacket, Fluffy and Grey liked the ironing board when they were alive. Seven simply can't get up there with only 3 legs.
