Finally Done! And a Winner too!

I want to thank those that participated in my LINKY PARTY this weekend!ย  Deb and Michele have both taken time to make lists and have LOTS accomplished now!ย  Yippee ๐Ÿ™‚

Deb linked up on Black Friday for my special giveaway and chose the pretty RED tape measure…

Then she shared this would be a gift to go along with a SEWING MACHINE she is getting her 5 year old daughter for CHRISTMAS!!!!ย  What??? Well guess who won the Linky Loot for the weekend link ups??? Deb did… so I am gifting her LINKY LOOT to her dd!ย  I have a cute little package all together…

ย just to make it squishy & get it all to the post office to mail it now! lol

But for me the BIG NEWS IS….

I finished the Byrum Family Quilt yesterday and washed and dried and photographed it today!ย  My honey did the photography and figured out a set up…

The quilt was 96″ square before washing… it is now 91″ square after washing and it is soft and sweet smelling and ready for it’s new home forever to be loved… I hope ๐Ÿ™‚

My brother and sis in law and their 4 kids are the lucky recipients if you don’t usually follow me ๐Ÿ™‚

ย I will be posting my finish officially over the weekend to give time for mailing!

Here is a fun windy shot that may be a facebook header once the quilt has been received!

ย So now I am back at my cutting table preparing parts for more sewing on my Wish Upon a Vintage Star wallhanging I started a while back.. hope you are having a crafty week too!
Congrats again to Deb’s daughter!!!
Until my next post… happy stitching and…

Happy Hump Day & a WINNER!

Each month I so look forward to seeing progress posted for those that link up to my LINKY PARTY!ย  It is so inspiring for me to see what everyone is up to but the progress THEY make inspires me just by reading the posts ๐Ÿ™‚ย  And I did finish my block!

Another fun part is picking out LINKY LOOT! for a lucky linker at my LINKY PARTY… this months winner was Michele in Maryland with her post.ย  I am hoping to hear back from her winning email to fill her stash with some linky loot ๐Ÿ™‚

Novembers Linky Party is slated for Thanksgiving weekend.. and I am planning something extra fun for early linkers!!!ย  So plan ahead and spend some of Black Friday planning a blog post good for linking up with me & see what happens ๐Ÿ™‚

In the meantime I am stitching on this cute school house block…

Which signifies I have quilted all the sides and only have the top, bottom, corners, and outer border left to quilt on this baby.

I had a really nice chat with my brother this morning … we rarely get to chat these days… and as this quilt if for him and his beautiful family…

I am now motivated more than ever to meet my Thanksgiving deadline for being done with this project ๐Ÿ™‚

I am quilting outside that red square now ๐Ÿ™‚

Please keep my quilting in your prayers as this deadline is only a month away.. Hopefully I will have a finished quilt to share with you by the next LINKY PARTY! lol

Have a Quilty Hump Day!

July Linky Loot winner!

Thanks to Deb A. for linking this month to the LINKY PARTY I have each month… end of the month…August dates are the 29th to the 31st that the Linky will be open.ย  Linky Loot will be chosen after the random draw of linkers is drawn… catered to their goals for the month!ย  Yippee ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is July’s Linky Loot… on it’s way to Deb A already!!!

Deb linked this choc full of goals completed and future goals in her post HERE!ย  She blogs at VTQuilter.blogspot.com if you want to view her lovely blog with inspirational header on your own and not through the link I provided ๐Ÿ™‚

I fell in love with one of her current projects and found something I think she will enjoy adding to her quilting… or it may find a home in another future project maybe… look at this quilt top in progress she is making!

Congrats Deb!!!!

In the meantime, I am still working on the Byrum Family Quilt … in the piecing phase… Me and my vintage machine Fiona are getting along great but life keeps getting in the way so today I voted for a “no driving” day for me… as I play taxi service to my teen daughter (better me than her driving yet I figure )… so today she will spend her day as a pedestrian and I hopefully will have some progress to share with you on Wednesday ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a blessed day…
