The Random # Generator picked #5 - which is .......Wendy, Quilts by the Sea. Wendy, if you will send your shipping information to Tori at firstname.lastname@example.org, she will ship you your Zoie's Baskets kit when she gets back from Mexico, poor dear. :)
Congratulations to Wendy and lots of thanks to all of you for your very nice comments about my lovely granddaughter and about my quilt. Wish you all could have won.
And while Tori and her husband are basking in the sun in Mexico, it finally decided to be winter here. Which brings to mind one of my favorite quilts "The Winter Quilt". It's one of my more complex quilts, to say the least. Helen Williams, bless her soul, pieced all of those star blocks and three of us worked on the applique - Helen, Barbara Dunaway and me. People always ask me how long it took and I really don't know but it was awhile :).
It's on the back cover of The Winter Book. And to celebrate the arrival of winter, I'll put the book on special over the weekend for $10.00 off.
Happy winter. I just love winter ---- as long as it doesn't get carried away with itself.
When Spike and I headed for the barn to feed the cats and let the chickens out we found a little lady cardinal sitting on the sidewalk. There are drawbacks to very clean windows. I was pretty sure that she was just stunned so I scooped her up and took her to the barn. We have an old bird cage there that's a good hospital bed. She just sat on the floor when I put her in. After feeding the cats and letting the chickens out and giving them food and water I went back and checked on her. She was flying around the cage trying to get out. I opened the window and the cage. Out she flew!
Probably over the garden and back to the feeders :) Stay away from windows, this time dear.
Just maybe sit awhile and bask in the sun.
Have a good weekend all.
