First things first. Loud drum roll here..............................The winner of the 2012 Mystery Quilt is judyquilts who started her comment with "I can always be tempted by birds." . Congratulations Judy . If you'll email your shipping info to Tori at firstname.lastname@example.org she'll make sure you get on the list and marked paid. We try to ship the Mystery Quilt blocks around the middle of the month.
Sorry everyone couldn't win but just to console the rest of you we have another big giveaway to mark the 12th day. It's Epiphany - the day the wisemen brought gifts to the child according to church tradition. So we have a gift for one of you.
But we need to back up a little.
This is our oldest granddaughter, Zoie. Zoie never played with dolls like Lilly. Zoie loved and loves animals.
Here she is with Turkey/Surkey (not a whiz at names). She just loves turkeys. And that turkey knew it. She would come running when she saw Zoie heading for the gate of the chicken yard.
When someone dumped a cat and kittens at the farm and the cat disappeared, Zoie jumped right in and fed them all the milk replacer. And eventually took 2 home. Of course when they moved from their duplex to an apartment the cats both had to come to the farm to live. And in the house - not in the barn. Hmmm!
This is Zoie and Afentra - her beloved guinea pig. Afentra had her toenails painted, wore a crown and knew how to work it so that she got lots of green and red peppers - her favorites.
This is Sumo Zoie's Japanese Chin a Christmas present last year. At the moment he's purple - still has on his costume from Halloween.
Zoie occasionally goofs off with people too. Here she is with Quinn & Cullen. Those are their jammies - the bones glow in the dark.
And this is Zoie's Baskets.
It's 102" x 102" and a very special quilt, like Zoie is a very special girl.
It's on sale all day for 20% off. Obviously the shipping is free.
And - - - - we're giving a kit away.
Make a comment, any old comment before the 12th. We'll draw another name then. If you've already bought it, we'll refund your money.
Happy New Year from all of us at Jan Patek Quilts.
