2, yes 2, contests in 1....

UPDATE
Thanks to Pat, I win the Duffous Prize...We won't be announcing the prize winners on Monday!! That is the day we are leaving. duh!! We will announce them here on Thursday or Friday...

Ok, here we go....

Miss Nancy and I went shopping Thursday after Redwork and picked up these.....

The fun part -

For the winner of MY contest....
3 beautiful FQ's that Patches just got in.

For the winner of Miss Nancy's contest....
3 FQ's plucked from the shelves of Patches by Miss Nancy herself....



Here are our lists

My List -
1. red, white and black yellow brick road FOR ME!! I have the first cut done.
2. 30's print quilt top. I have all the pieces cut for all the blocks
3. tote bag
4. tote bag
5. hand embroidery
6. oh, another tote bag...
7. and yet another tote bag...

Miss Nancy's list -
1. finish Sunflower Tic Tac Mo quilt top
2. finish Sunflower table runner
3. start and finish a Christmas table runner
4. start and finish a 5 seam table topper
5. do some redwork

The information part -

Leave a comment on this post and guess how many projects we will each get finished. Please make sure we can tell which Nancy you are guessing for. You can guess for each contest just make sure you use Nancy and Miss Nancy so we can figure out who wins.... Mention in your comment that you posted a link on your blog and earn another entry...

The boring part -

Each of us will have one winner. You can't win both contests, so if you are the correct guesser for both, you will only win one and then we will go to the next closest.... seems only fair to spread that fabric around....
Yes, we will mail overseas..

Want a couple of hints? Miss Nancy's pins EVERYTHING, which of course slows her down a bit.LOL .. I don't pin ANYTHING which means I can go faster. We leave Monday morning and come home Wednesday afternoon.

Winner announced MONDAY!!

I have grandkids this afternoon and overnight, then will finish packing tomorrow.

Happy Sewing,
Nancy
PS to my non-sewing sis - if you guess and win you only get the fabric, I will NOT be making anything for you....

WOW I am not sure on either count.
I know when I have gone on a 3 day ssewing trip i can get a lot done and then other times notheing sooo
nancy 6 done
miss nancy 1.5 done

Pat said...

Hmmmmm for you, Nancy, I was going to guess 5, but now I'm thinking 4 for you. And....for Miss Nancy, I think she will finish 2. Of course, if you get to gabbing too much and spending time eating too many snacks, I'm sure I'll be wrong on my guesses!!! I'm not even hazarding a guess how much I'll finish while in NC this week with my Sloanie pals on our retreat. Have a great time!!! (Hope I win for one of you. :) )

Pat said...

Hey...wait...how can you announce the winner on Monday when that is the day you are leaving???? Are you trying to TRICK us??? :) If so, do I get an extra point for catching the trick?? LOL

I'm going to guess:
Nancy - 5
Miss Nancy 3.5
By the way, I like your names! :)

Hi
Since I know Nancy doesn't snack while sewing, I'll say she'll finish a good 4 items on her list.....Miss Nancy, I don't know but will give her 3!!!!!
Have fun girls....I'll see you all there next year.

Your Sis :)

Nancy said...

Great comments, ladies. This is something new for me being the subject of a giveaway. I am hoping to surprise myself and get lots done. Keep the guesses coming. The great Sewing Guess begins Monday morning. Oh, such pressure. Miss Nancy

Carol said...

O.K. Nancy! I have joined!!! My humble answer is 5, since you are good with everything you do!!! And I would love to win something, anything, soon!!!

Joanna said...

OK, my guess for you, Nancy is 6! Yes I have a lot of faith in you. You could get a lot of tote bags done assembly line style... And for the other Miss Nancy, I will guess 3.

Can't wait to see how you do!

Pat said...

Love the fabrics. For you 3.5 and for Miss Nancy 2. Good luch and have lots of fun.

Brenda said...

OK< so I think you will complete all five projects while Miss N? HMMM... Three runners, that's it...
Now I can't wait to see how many you actually do finish, Hurry back to show us! Have fun!

Carol said...

Well - it is supposed to be fun and relaxing - this sounds like a Marathon Run.

But I bet you get a lot done

Nancy 6 out of the 7

Miss Nancy 4 out of 5

Hope you enjoy - not just power sew

Sharon S said...

Okay Nancy, I am going out on a limb & guess you will get 6 done(I think those tote bags will be "chain sewn"). Miss Nancy 4. Hope you have a great time. Nothing better than being with friends & sewing for 3 days!

Sue said...

I'm guessing 5 for Nancy and 3 for Miss Nancy. I hope you both finish everything you set out to do. But if you're anything like me and my friend. Eating, chatting and procrastinating always gets in the way. Good luck. xx Sue
