A quilt Giveaway and back to my blog!

I discovered a new blog tonight, Banaghaisge and she is giving away a quilt that she has made for her blogaversary!  It is gorgeous, yes go take a look and you may just choose to enter also!  This was a good thing because it has gotten me back to my blog! 

I have been out every night for the last week with work or other commitments and I just haven't fit in my blog very well.  I also have been down to about 5 minutes of daily quilting, but thankfully that will change tomorrow!  Also, my DD has been home from college this week on Spring break--only 6 more weeks and another year of college is finished--where did that year go?  It has been wonderful to get the time with her--she goes back on Sunday...

One fantastic getaway was a trip to the New Jersey Quilt show last Saturday with a bus full of quilters!  We had a blast!  The vendors were first rate and the quilts were excellent!  I will have to get some pictures on this site, I took a few and my friend Pam took many more!  Tomorrow I am getting together with the monthly quilting group--it should be a lot of fun!  So, I should get some pictures there too!

A Win and The Amaryllis

I went to the mailbox today and look what was inside, the three patterns that I won over at Sew Cindy's blog!  Thank you, thank you!  It is so much fun to win something and receive items in the mail--makes me feel like it is Christmas receiving a present!  These are three great patterns, I have always wanted the Patchwork Pumpkin and I just love the birdhouses!  I definitely need to make the sewing kit and keep me organized on the road--yeah!
I also have been working on my Amaryllis--here is how far I have gotten:  I have traced all of the pattern pieces onto Steam-a-Seam Light!  When I finish here, I will be heading upstairs to cut all apart and fuse to the fabric!  Yeah, another step will be completed!

So, without further lingering, off I go to cut and iron!  Until tomorrow, happy quilting!
