TA DA...A Winner!!

#200

First,  let me thank all of you who have commented on my blog! I have enjoyed your comments and learned so much about my fellow quilting bloggers....we have some of the same concerns about quilting and quilters are so willing to share ideas and techniques. I have also had the chance to follow new blogs and have enjoyed learning about you.


The winner is someone I have learned to love just by her posts!  Her posts are thoughtful and humorous...she has set some great goals for herself and is embarking on a new career after raising her three children...she finished grad school and now has a special education classroom....just starting this fall....isn't that great!!!
As a retired educator, I really wish her well....


So without any more words, I'd like to announce that

Shelia C whose blog is My Empty Nest is Full of Cat Hair is my giveaway winner....Shelia - Please email me with your preferences for color and/or theme of fabric you would like me to buy  for you at the Quilt Show! If you  haven't visited her blog, be sure to stop by!


So after all that, I should talk a little about my quilting day....first, I went to my guild to see Gylene Fitzgerald.  If you haven't seen Gylene, be sure to check out her website. She is entertaining and works wonders with color.  She exemplifies the idea that you should enjoy your quilting and not be afraid to just sew!

Then I came home to find that my hubby had hooked up a new Hi Def TV in my sewing room....my old tv was really bad  and it had an annoying hum/hiss that interfered with the sound.....and I do love to listen to Turner Classic Movies while I am sewing....wasn't he a dear!!

So, here I sit, computer on my lap, tv going in the background...and planning what to do next on my quilting~

Happy quilting.

Congratulations to your winner! I also love to listen to Turner Classic Movies while I sew. I seldom watch, since the tv is behind me as I sew, but I enjoy the company.

Congratulations to your winner.

How lovely to have a TV in your sewing room. Does it stop or slow down your sewing though?
