HI folks...I would have posted this as a WIP with Monika, but since there is a giveaway...decided not to.
This week I am really crazy busy with quilts and things. I am also working hard at hauling and piling hard wood for the next few winters. So, on with this post, eh!!!!!!!
I am planning to put this customer quilt in the frames today...to be hand quilted. This lady has had me quilt 3or4 quilts in these colours in the last couple of years. Guess she loves them...lol
It is roughly 92x100 inches. And this next one is from a new customer...making it larger for starters.
Her grandmother hand pieced the grandmothers flower garden, but Its too small. I am adding borders to fit a king size bed then will hand quilt it.
One more outside border to add...darker print from same line. And I have this one ready to machine quilt...jelly roll quilt.
This lady has 5 or 6 for me....this next one is finished. She will bind them.
Now, for the fun!!!! I have two giveaways for you today...sponsored by a couple of fantastic quilt shops that we all love.
In alphabetical order.....
Pam is generously sponsoring with a $30.00 gift certificate for one lucky winner.
JUdy is giving one lucky winner a $25.00 gift certificate. How much more could we ask for???
Don't you love our sponsors people!!!!!! I know I appreciate them very much... thanks to both shops.
Now...to enter, you have to follow my blog, so in the comments, tell me how you follow, please.
Monday, October 31st, I will draw the 2 winners in respective order. Then send your email to our sponsors. So....make sure I am able to reach you, please!!!!!!!
Thank you all for following, and to Carols and Pam for sponsoring...love you girls!!!!!!

It is Sunday evening, and quite windy here in Shepody...but has been a very nice weekend.
I have a couple of finishes for you tonight...first is the wedding memory quilt. This is not easy for you to really see, I don't take great pics. It is made from the girls wedding gown, and her bouquet.
This piece measures 30"x36" and she plans on framing it in a shadow box.
I always feel so thrilled when they see their quilts for the first time. Now the second finish is a quilt that I hand quilted for a customer...Lovers Knot.
Tomorrow brings a new day, and probably a new quilt to hand quilt will be started. I have three waiting to hand quilt, and two right now, to machine quilt...three on the way.
I am working on your giveaway too....soon!
Have a great week my friends.

I was just looking through things, and realized that Sept. Was my blogging anniversary...6 years.
I am so happy that my daughter-in-law clued me in to it. So....keep watching my blog, please, because I am going to have a nice giveaway before long. I need a little time to figure out just what I want to do...so, be aware...ok?
I miss all the little giveaways we used to have. It is overdue people!!!! Lol
Now....what's going on here In my busy corner??? Well...we are not idle, that's for sure!
I am halfway through hand quilting this "lovers knot".
This quilt is king size....a wedding gift from my customer to her daughter.
I am about halfway through this memory quilt....remember the bridal gown???
It is on my design wall right now...I have added some peach coloured petals since this pic was taken.
I have three large quilts waiting to be hand quilted for customers, and three of five quilts waiting to be machine quilted for Christmas. That's because only three have arrived yet.
Besides all the quilting, I got the last of my potatoes in for the winter!!!! Now to start on next years hard wood....lol. But it keeps me outside on nice days, which I like.
Well friends, I think I have said enough for now. Stay tuned for the giveaway coming very soon!!!!
