we will have a winner....

20- the number of you that sent me copies of congrats emails to Kristin. Thanks to all of you. Yesterday I overheard her telling someone that all these "weird people she didn't know" were sending her emails saying congrats on her new job. :- )
Her sister clued her in....

I thought it only fair that she get to pick the winner, so I have sent her an email and as soon as she picks a number I will announce the winner.

Yesterday was a fun filled day with a wonderful Baby Shower for my niece. We played games and had great food. We were handed a blue ribbon bracelet with a blue Binky charm. The most fun was watching my oldest granddaughter run around trying to get people to say "baby" which was the magic word. If you said the word, you lost the bracelet. The one with the most bracelets at the end won a prize. She was relentless. She would run over to a baby and say "Grandma, what IS THIS?" I would say "oh, a b-infant?"....she would stomp her foot... At the end she won another one of the games and I ended up with the most bracelets (thanks to Kristin, who walked up to me, said BABY and handed me her 4 or 5). What did I win? A set of candle holders...UGH! I don't do candles, so they will be regifted during a Christmas game...sshhh....don't tell anyone.

I can finally show the quilt I made for the new baby (due in January)....



I thought I got some closeups, but can't seem to find them...dang it...

The tutorial for this is at the Moda Bake Shop. It's a great tute by AmandaJean at Crazy Mom Quilts. Check out her blog for loads of other great tutes on her side bar...

I love this fabric, Wee Play by American Jane...I wish I still had a whole set of FQ's ....

Need to start packing for retreat today. I have it on good authority that my ride will be here at 2pm...and I better be ready to go...

Back later tonight with a winner...

That quilt is darling. Thanks for the link. I may just try one similar to that.
The "don't say baby" game sounds like fun.

love the coin quilt you made for the baby!
Its the perfect baby quilt in mho.
Easy to make from the stash OR just buy a few charm packs and you have enough for a few baby quilts!
