A Quick Post--I won the buttons!

Just a quick post to say thank you to Barb and Gene!  Barb for hosting the button giveaway and Gene for pulling my name with nine others!  This is such a great way to come back to blogging! 

It is suppose to be Spring, however we are expecting snow tomorrow into Thursday--up to six inches!  The 70 degrees we had on Friday was such a tease!  Well, maybe I will be able to work on my Sunflower quilt in the hoop!  That would be fantastic!  I will have to show a sneak peak of it tomorrow!

Have a great night and until tomorrow -- enjoy your time quilting and sewing!

A Blog Link and a quilt with a story!

I am starting off this evening with a link to a new blogger for me!  I visited Bejeweled by Barb and while there discovered a new blog!  I hopped over to Susan's Texas Quilting Adventures and had a wonderful time going through so many wonderful posts!  She is also offering a giveaway for her blogaversary, but you have to hurry--it ends today!

Return to Blogging

It has been a very long time and a long snowy, hard winter.  Today is the first day of Spring, and I can't think of a better day to return to my very neglected blog!  I am hoping that with Spring, I am renewed and can bring about an informative and fun blog!  While I have not started out this year in the same quilting manner as last year--which was such a wonderful beginning of sewing or quilting every day regardless of how long; I have still been involved with some quilting, a quilt show in Somerset, New Jersey already and a couple of quilt classes! 

I have also come back to reading my favorite blogs and one that I visited, Bejeweled by Barb, is having a fantastic giveaway for some very special buttons!  A company called:  ButtonMad which originated in South Africa and empowering women by offering them a craft and employment to better themselves.  Check out their website and see the incredible buttons they are making!  Absolutely awesome! 

An update on the tiny kitty--not so tiny any more:

Until tomorrow then.....quilt more....Barb
