Whoohoo!

I need to walk, clean and sew - to get the sugar cleared from my head and to come down from my Christmas High! The mister is back at work, the kids have flown home and it's just me and the dog - time to sew up something wonderful - or unsew - which will probably be the case but I'm ready to get to work! Congrats to all the winners and thanks to Madame Samm for her gracious hospitality - as always! xoxo, Nan

  106. Congratulations to the winners~ and to Jane too! Great new look! I agree that we are all winners, the friendships we share as well as our love of quilting make for a wonderful combination. Thanks for the fun Samm!

  107. Congratulations to all of you lucky ducky winners! What a wonderful way to extend the holiday season. And a huge debt of gratitude to the amazing sponsors who make such giveaways possible to all of us fabric and pattern hungry crafters out here in blogland. And to Madame Samm for giving us all a little gift (almost) each and every day to get the creativity flying!

  108. I started sewing almost 60 years ago (in case you're wondering, I'm 64). I made clothes for myself, clothes for my kids, curtains, etc, etc, etc! I only dabbled a teeny bit in quilting. Now that I am widowed, with 11 grandbabies and one grandpuppy, I have turned to quilting....well, more fabric hoarding than quilting so far, but I'm taking a stab at it. I don't have many friends in "real" life, but I feel like I have so many friends in the blogs I follow. They are supportive, funny, teach me things, encourage me, and many more things that I imagine all of you know already. Even though I still go to work every day, I am disabled and in constant, chronic, horrible pain. I can only go to places that have those scooter carts, so, basically, I am limited to the grocery store and Walmart. My blog friends have widened my world, and I don't feel so lonely when I'm with them.

    Thank you, Samm, for bringing more people into my life! I wouldn't have found them without you. 8-)

  109. Way to go winnahs! I know Carol and Felicity...maybe they'll share!?!

  110. Congratulations to all the winners, and a big THANK YOU to you and the sponsors for making it all happen. It was fun to participate.

  111. Congrats to the winners, nice the winners are from Europe, Canada and US, and a warm welcome back to you, in the hawaiian style I'll give to you a flowers collar (not sure if the name's leile, if not I'm totally wrong, lol) and I'll say aloha to you!!!!. Oh myyyyyyy... you weren't totally MIA, you were taking a well deserved rest, hope you had bunches and bunches of it!!!
    Hope you have the happiest holidays ever (need to delete routine word from our brain, lol)

  112. Congratulations to the very lucky winners!
    Good thing we all win with Stash Manicure, Madame Samm and the everyday guest bloggers. See you tomorrow!

  113. I am so waiting to go home to get to my machine and start. I have a quilt pieced and done (only to be hand quilted) for one nephew, another quilt which has to be done for the other nephew fast otherwise they will quarrel if I give only one of them!!! and so many itty bits to sew like the mug rugs that I cant wait.

  114. Such lovely prizes for such lucky quilters! Thanks to Madame Samm and all the sponsors!

  115. Congrats to all the winners! And just visited Jane's new blog...looks fantastic, Sam. Great job.

  116. Congratulations to ALL the winners! Thanks Madame Samm for all you do for us.
