The winner is....

Drum roll please... or trumpets blaring...

The winner of my first giveaway that had only 10 entries. That is puzzling that only 10 people wanted a free gift!!

I digress. The winner is Mary of I Itch to Stitch.

If Mary will send her snail mail addy, the prize will be on its way soon.

Thank everyone who took the time to read my blog and leave humorous and interesting comments.

I did use the random number generator. And soon I hope to be able to post pictures and make my blog more interesting.

It is cool here in Georgia this morning. So not ready for winter. I am definitely not a cold weather person. We have been here for two years and I don't like the winter weather here. Before that we traveled around the country in a fifth wheel. Spent the winters in Florida where it was nice and toasty. Hope to do that again some day.

Time to go to my sewing room and look for things to take to our quilt guild's Chinese Auction coming up soon.

Everyone have a good day!

Last Chance to Enter!!

Tomorrow is the deadline for my giveaway. So come on over to my blog for Nov. 1 and leave a comment. I will draw a name on Wednesday and send a surprise gift to the winner!!

Just wondering how many of you are getting the flu shot - swine or seasonal. I got my first flu shot last year and was sick for months. Aches, sniffles, etc. Totally not the norm for me. So I won't get another flu shot. And it seemed to affect my nervous system. Made me anxious and feeling just plain weird. Wondering if anybody else out there has had this experience.

Now to quilty matters. I have to stop shopping online. Such bargains out there everywhere. Hard to resist. And I love Moda. So when I see a sale on new lines I have to order. Don't I?

Keep your family close and never leave without saying I Love You!!!

Two giveaways!!!

OK. First things first. You all need to go to: and check the fabric they are giving away. Beautiful!

And second you need to go to my post yesterday and leave me a comment. Don't know what I'm giving away yet but it'll be nice, I promise.

Lastly I need to tell the rest of the story regarding the ironing.

You see my husband usually does ALL the ironing here. He says I don't get all the wrinkles out. Well, who am I to argue. Right!

So while he is recovering from total knee replacement, I'm having to iron. He's laying on the bed watching and telling me I am ironing wrong.

So tell me if you agree or not.

And I guess being new to this I forgot to say - giveaway mailed only to U.S. addresses.

I leave you with this thought - isn't life wonderful!! Dance like nobody's watching and love like you've never been hurt!!!

How do you iron?

I was ironing my clothes this morning and my husband is laying on the bed watching. All of a sudden he says - You're ironing backwards. Huh? How can you iron backwards.

Well he says I'm on the wrong side of the ironing board.

So I thought I would open a discussion with you folks. Which side of the ironing board do you stand on?

Now I stand on the side where my left hand would be towards the small end of the ironing board and my right hand is towards the wide end of the ironing board. And I iron with my right hand.

So I'd like you all to comment on which way you stand. And also if you're right or left handed.

I don't have a picture to put up here but I'll use the random number generator and one of you lucky commenters will win a prize as yet to be determined. It'll be a surprise!!

Don't you all love surprises!

So let me know and maybe this will encourage me to post more often as I get to know more of you.

All comments should be left by Wednesday, Nov. 4th. I will draw soon after that.
