Happy Thursday ... All Winners Found!

Happy Thursday everyone ... hope you're having a great day. I heard back from Mindy, so all of the packages to the giveaway winners will be mailed out tomorrow. If you would kindly e-mail me when you get yours, I sure would appreciate it. 

On today's agenda ... some sewing and crocheting. I started the recliner cover for Mr. S. using some Vanna yarn I found in my stash that was the perfect color. I'm just making it really simple, as I don't want something too girly or pretty for Mr. S. and his "man cave"  ..... ha ha! 

I am also going to try to work on a quilt ... that is my new sewing "thing" and I am slowly but surely getting into it. I have four, yes FOUR, baby blankets I need to make, and there is no way I could do four crocheted blankets before all of these babies are born. So I decided I would just sew the blankets instead, and am trying my hand at quilting. So far I love the process of putting the quilt top together, but am not so fond of the actual "quilting" part, because I'm not very good at it yet. As with anything else, I'm sure it will get better the more I practice. If you would like to see my first completed quilt, you can check it out on my sewing blog here.

Giveaway winners, I sure hope you enjoy your stitch markers. I use mine for when I crochet in the round, and also use one to hold my place when I put a project away in my bag. It is so much prettier than the safety pin I used to use!

Have a great Thursday  :)

  1. Sandy, can't wait to get my stitch marker, know that it will be put to good use! I did go to your sewing blog and I am drooling. The quilt you made is amazing. I love it and I have to learn how to do this. What beautiful work you do! I did leave a comment there but not sure that it took. I'm hoping this winter to get back into sewing and learning to quilt. Have a wonderful afternoon. Blessings.


Thanks so much for leaving me a comment; I love to hear from you. I will reply directly to your comment right here on my blog.
