Saturdays are our Sponsor days..RECAP of our 3rd week of 13 weeks Wantobe Quilters Campaign

3 weeks down 10 more to go...
What was I thinking????

I will tell you---I was thinking wouldn't it be nice
for many around our world to see what amazing companies
 out there have the GREATEST LATEST BEST
everything  and have them as sponsors..
( and you have to agree they are the BEST)

I was thinking what JOY will come into YOUR lives
to know that quilters are pretty amazing people.
I was thinking I wish I had known all about YOU 
before now..
I am thinking  wait till you see what I have been thinking about
for after our campaign...
I am thinking I better stop now...

Ok, now to highlight our Sponsored Giveaways this week!

I had a lot of things laying around from projects I did for my daughters wedding. Her colors were purple and orange. Had a lot of this lovely orange ribbon left we used on the bouquets and while I was rolling it up to put it away I thought of you. Orange you glad? Have a great weekend.
