Saturdays are our Sponsor days..RECAP of our 12th week 1 more week 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 least in her 11th week of memorable moments...
She noted there are 2more weeks to go...and her room where all the giveaways are stored is finally looking like a sewing room again. There are still some amazing giveaways still yet
to find homes...Will they find it in YOURS? Do you need a machine, an iron,
some fabric...well stay tuned for the next 2 weeks---you might find an email
with "take a peek" very soon....
