400th Blog Post Prizes

The wheels sometimes turn oh-so-slowly, but they still turn.  The prizes for commenting on the 400th blog post are finally ready.  These will be a limited edition--limited to just these eight; this combination of fabrics will not be used for this purpose again.

The tops are hand pieced and the ornaments are finished both by machine and hand.  Each is signed and dated on the back.

Which one will be yours?  Even I don't know!  I will address the envelopes, turn the ornaments face down and add one to each envelope!  Luck of the draw.  They will go in the mail on Monday.  I hope you will enjoy them.

Deb G. in VA, I still need your snail mail address; I promise not to share it with anyone.  Email me privately at   And, Cindy O.?  You only get one prize even though you commented twice!  Nice try....

Windy and cold here.  Gusts up to 35 miles an hour, but I think they may be more than 35 mph.  

I have the Candy Cane sweater started again and am making good progress.  Have hand pieced three blocks from the new Monthly Bliss 3 sample.  Finished the binding on a friend's tablerunner.  A little of this and a little of that.

That's it for tonight.  Keep warm!


P.S.  I am listening to Comfort Food by Kate Jacobs.
