Blogaversary Prize Winner!

I drew a name today from those who entered my blogaversary contest!

Loraine at Sew Be It! has won!!! Yay!
Congratulations Loraine. And thank you to everybody who entered, I wish I had the time to make something for each of you :)
We had a fun Halloween night and the kids managed to get about 300 pounds of candy, I swear! It was great. This week was pretty productive for me on the sewing front. I managed to get 7 placemats sewn. I know... 7 is not an even number, but that was all of the scraps I had, so I've got to figure out how to give them away :D My Grandma gets at least 3 of them! It was her idea.
I also finished 6 blocks for the Victorian Garden quilt pattern. These blocks have been a nightmare for me, and it was all because I can't read instructions. At least they are done, and look pretty good now! I almost threw it all in the trash I got so exasperated. I finally calmed down and chalked up all of that time to gaining experience :)

Congratulations Loraine.
Pretty placemats. Grandma's are clever aren't they.
I can see why you had such
trouble with that block. There are a lot of things that have to go right. Very nice job!

Heather! I can't believe I won your wonderful giveaway. I'm so excited! Thanks so much.
BTW love your Halloween pumpkins and kiddo's. Too much fun.
Take Care, and thank you a million times. I can't wait to get this darling pillow and wonderful patterns.

I absolutely love the Victorian Garden blocks! They might have been fiddly to stitch, but so worth it! I can't wait to see the next step on this quilt!

You have made some great placemats - congrats on the finishes, and lucky recepients :o)
