WOW!!

Hello, If you have not signed up for my 100 post 'Birthday' giveaway and wish to, please do so here. The response has just been overwhelming with about 100 names as some have 2 chances!! I have tried to message you all personally, I am sorry if I have missed you but please be assured that you ARE in the draw!! I still have not quite finished the gift, it will be finished tomorrow. I will say it is Red, and there are some Bumble Bee's on it.

This week, I will be posting off Bec's Xmas In July swap gift, cant say what it is, but here it is all wrapped up ready to go. Now Bec, once you receive it, please DO NOT open it until the 25th July!! lol!! I hope you like it.

As some of you will know, I have joined Peg's quilting challange - Finish 5 Quilts, I decided that MY challange will be to hand quilt my Journey of a Quilter. I have NEVER hand quilted anything bigger than a small table throw. I think I am going ok. I am using the Thimblelady technique for this and am really enjoing it. Here is a sneek peek at Block 4..... yes, I am now quilting my 4th block!!

I will keep you posted on my progress with this challange. And, dont forget to join my giveaway

Well Done on the quilting!! I have almost finished my Xmas Ornament, will finish tonight and then I can send it off, I think it can be number 1 finish for Pegs challenge. Any finish is a bonus for me!!! Cathyxx

Oh my.
I was scrolling through your latest post and saw the lovely gift all wrapped up, then I started reading and THE PRESENT IS MINE! wow. Talk about making me feel really special. Thankyou Sarah! I AM getting excited now!

Yes, Sarah I will be good and not open it. My children will see to it. These are the children that are always pulling me up for not holding my hands correctly when I machine quilt, so I won't get away with peeking at the present. *grin*
