Saturdays are our Sponsor days..RECAP of our 10th week together ...3 more weeks to go..






Once upon a time this lady , oh let's call her Madame, thought it would be a great idea to invite some wonderful guest bloggers to post on this blog. She thought wouldn't it be nice to have some Sponsors too - for some giveaways . Sh also thought why not invite some WANTOBE  Quilters to the mix and show them how much fun you can have cutting up material and sewing them back together again......YEP that is what she thought in her fairly creative mind... And the story went like this...at least in her 10th  week of memorable moments...
She noted there are 3 more weeks to go...and her room where all the giveaways are stored doesn't seem to be diminishing quite quick  enough.. she may have to give a whole lot more goodies away...a whole lot more...



The week began like this...
on Monday...




Carol featured her LADIES..
she loves applique and color and no mistaken
this lady stitches in high velocity and some
kind of octane we should all be drinking...



OUR giveaway that day was forWANTOBEs....


 and the Winners..
Paula and April..

 Paula won this  Box of 12 large spools of Auriful thread..
 12 of their top selling Aurifil threads for YOU.
.that should keep you in threads for a couple of years anyway..

.1,422 yards (1,300 m) of thread on each spool x 12 =17,604 yards (15,600 m) , which if you used 1/4 of each spool that would mean you could make at least 48 lap quilts or something like that..lol ok, it's a lot of thread

April won this Beam N Read..
you can also order these from 
IHAN with Kelly...

This is my favourite NOTION this year
....I love to stitch
in the evening and even though I have enjoyed
my floor lamps..I always found I got over heated..
not because I was stitching sew fast lol
because of the heat from the bulbs..
not anymore....I have a BEAM N READ..
Biggest problem around here...is my husband always wants
to take it to bed with him...Ü
( not me the BEAM N READ) 

.Big thanks goes out to Carol, Aurifil , Beam N Read, and YOU for making each day as exciting as the last...YOU really do matter-- sew we keep serving up the GREATEST LATEST BEST guests, sponsors and infotainment...Thank YOU!
