Tell Me Tuesday #2

Hooray, I'm back home from Portland, Oregon just in time for another installment of Tell Me Tuesday. Last week's question got three responses - maybe we can double the responses this week.

Today's question is inspired by the November Minneapolis Modern Quilt Guild meeting.

What's the best thing you've ever won?

Check out what I won at the last MMQG meeting!

The idea was for each of us to make a Maverick/Wonky Star block with a rainbow theme with a gray background (shade of our choice) and bring it to the meeting. Then we had a drawing for the blocks. Winner takes all!

I was delighted to win. Aren't they beautiful?

Here's my block - 

I'll be sure to share a photo of my finished project.

Happy crafting,

Tell Me Tuesday #1

Today I'm starting a new feature called Tell Me Tuesday. It gets boring just writing about myself and my sewing. I want to hear about you, so please, please, please pretty please leave a comment with your answer to my fascinating question.

What are you planning to do this Friday after Thanksgiving (a.k.a. Black Friday)?

Tomorrow I'm flying to Portland, Oregon with my daughter, Gwen, to visit my mom and celebrate her milestone birthday (which is on Friday). I would tell you how old she is but she might not like that ;) We're having dinner at The Chart House with her friends that night, but I'm not sure what we'll do during the day. Probably not shopping (unless we just happen to drive by a fabric store, of course!!). I haven't seen my mom in about 18 months, so whatever we do and wherever we go is fine with me.

Finally, a shameless plug for my Etsy shop. I've been listing items all week in preparation for heavy shopping days. I've got bunting banners, mini quilts, pin cushions, and more. Please check it out if you have time and spread the word. I'm offering 15% off for the next 5 days. Simply enter BLOGNOV2011 upon check out.

I can't wait to hear about your Friday plans or special traditions! Don't forget to leave a comment.

Happy crafting,
