Dear Santa

Dear Santa, First I'm being a good girl and letting friends know where to go for a fun giveaway. Go to www.fatquartershop.com and find their blog for the details of the giveaway.

Now down to the nitty gritty, Santa. I would like a Figgy Pudding jelly roll for Christmas. Yes, yes, I know that I have lots of fabric keeping my sewing room insulated, but there is always a small space somewhere that I can stuff more fabric, I mean insulation, into. I have been a good girl most of the year. Some things we just don't need to discuss in a public forum, OK?? I eat my vegetables, and keep my sewing room clean. (OK....I TRY to keep my sewing room clean). I promise to do better in the new year. I will leave you a shot & a beer, oops I mean some milk and cookies. Love, Patty

PIF giveaway

Have you ever been in a PIF (pay it forward) giveaway? I found one at Kim's blog http://createandsew.blogspot.com/ and decided to join her. So now I am going to do one also. The first 3 people who want to join in, leave me a comment with an email so I can contact you. The idea is I send you something and you in turn "Pay it Forward" to three people. This is where acts of kindness are done without expecting something in return. When you get my gift you in turn pass on a gift to 3 others. Your gifts can be homemade or purchased, from your stash, a tool, or whatever! Thanks for stopping by!

A Pocket Full Of Buttons: Carolina Pad Review & Giveaway

A Pocket Full Of Buttons: Carolina Pad Review & Giveaway

American girl dolls

I had 2 granddaughters over for 2 days to sew for their American girl dolls. I forgot how small the pieces are for doll clothes. They were such fun tho. We made matching skirts for each girl and her doll. We had so much fun. We went to have a picnic lunch with papa where he works and played in the park. When we got home the girls giggled and splashed in the whirlpool and we had ice cream with sprinkles for dessert after supper. They were so much fun to have for a couple days. Now I need to get busy sorting fabric and finishing up UFO's before they take over my sewing room.

My Blogoversary Candy
As promised I am posting my candy to celebrate my blog being one year old recently on 24th March. I can't believe that a year has passed so quickly! I am so glad that I took the step way back then to start a blog. I was a little cautious - who would want to visit me? A year later I have come into contact with so many wonderful people and have met some great friends as a result.
