And the Winner is.....

We picked the winner for our Breast Cancer 3-Day raffle quilt. The winner is Alicen B. from Norwalk, Ohio. YEAH!!! I have yet to reach Alicen to tell her the good news, but I'll keep trying. The raffle was a great success and I want to thank everyone who purchased a ticket or stopped to chat while I was selling the tickets at the various festivals, etc.

I have been very busy the last couple of weeks. I have worked quite a few hours and I have also been "stomping the pavement" asking for donations to "Girls Night Out" which is a fundraiser for Cancer Services sponsored by Curves and a slew of other businesses. The event takes place on Wednesday, October 29th and I have been told it is very fun. There is entertainment, food, a silent auction, and lots of other fun things.

I haven't gotten near as much quilting done as I had hoped, but maybe that will change soon. I need to finish the guild blocks and get them to Karen ASAP and I want to finish quilting my Pineapple Blossom and get it bound. Of course, there are other UFO's that need work, but I've been sketching and I want to get busy on those. I have also been checking out some blogs that have some awesome quilts that I want to do. Oh, there just isn't enough time.....

My "Quinn Update" includes that fact that she is now mobile! She can crawl pretty well but I think she really wants to walk. Nothing is safe now and I guess that means that I had better keep the pins off the floor!

Dang it Aunt Joanne, you were supposed to draw my name, then I would finally have a quilt from you! I guess I have to try again next year. I can't believe how mobile Quinn is already! She's so cute, wish I could see her in person before she gets much bigger, but I don't see that happening very soon. Can you believe that it's been a year since Sean was the one crawling around on your floor?

Lots of love, Sarah and the boys

Joanne,
Thanks for visiting my blog and signing up for a chance for the pickle kit. What a lovely idea to make the pincushions and give them to friends. I plan to post a page of designs next week that can be used instead of the pickle. You can probably come up with many on your own but check back and see what I come up with. I have so many ideas and fun things to share and there are just not enough hours in the day to do it all!!!
