and the Winner is..............

Yes, tax day was give away day.  It's that time of year when those less organized, or those who just plain drag their feet  (me) are under the crunch.  Yes, I was standing in line at the USPS to get my IRS envelop date stamped on the 15th. 

OK onto the fun stuff.  Random Number Generator picked #9 so the lucky winner is Mayleen from Q is for Quilt  Pop over there and see her latest finish, it's spectacular and is on my bucket list! Congratulations Mayleen, please email me your snail mail and I shall get your gift off to you next week.

There has been very little "me" stitching going on.  These stars have been hidden away in a tin for some time, and I finally pulled them out and did a little hand stitching.  I've prepped a lot of these and have no idea what they will become.  I might never know.  :-)


Not only have I been seeing stars, I feel like I've been going in circles due to this move.  With my customer quilts having priority over my own pieces, I like to always have a hand stitching project that is a take along.  Many circles have been prepped over the past few weeks, but very few have been stitched down.  Maybe today a few will make it to the top that they belong to.


Even though we have an amazing location at my guys new place, honestly, we've been too busy to even cross the street, but I'm sure next week will include a few walks out onto the tide flats.  I can see the kitchen counters and the spare bed only has 5 boxes on it now.  I couldn't see it yesterday morning. 

I hope you have some time to stitch this week!

You'll feel more like quilting once all those boxes are unpacked. That will be a job well done and then it will be on to some fun stuff. Kudos to you.

Pretty stars. I have a really hard time keeping my hand piecing from looking wonky, so I am really impressed with how good these look!
