Catch Up Time

Oh wow!  I have so much to catch up on in my little quilty world!  :o)

First of all, I want to thank everyone for the comments and personal e-mails you've sent me concerning my grandson, Ridge.  For some reason blogger wasn't sending all of the comments on my blog to my e-mail address, so I'm sorry I didn't reply!  :/  Anyway, he's doing GREAT and I know it's because of the love and support and prayers that all of our friends and family offered in his behalf!  A BIG HEART-FELT THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU!!!

Now to the fun stuff!!!  I won this darling mouse (I NEVER EVER thought I'd call a mouse "darling!"  Blick!!!) from Sinta Renee over at Pink Pincushion!

I won the cute little gray guy in front!  He even came with a mouse trap snapped on his tail!  I think I'll keep it there so he doesn't get away from me!  Thanks, Sinta Renee!!! :o)

Next, I won this awesome book from Jo's Country Junction

You should see all the cute projects inside!!!  I can't wait to get started on some of them!!!  Thank you, Jo, for such a great book!!!  :o)

Then I won a Lapel Stick from Debi Quilts!  You can go here to see what they do!  Thanks, Debi!!!  :o)

Next, I won a beautiful pattern called "Triangle-Confusion" from Double Nickel Quilts!  For some reason I can't copy a picture of the quilt so you're going to have to go over to their blog and check it out!  It looks so cool!  Great stash buster!  Thanks, Candace!!!  :o)

Finally, I want to send out a BIG THANK YOU to Gene over at Gene Black: An Alabama Artist and Quilter for helping me with an embroidery question!  You all know I'm fairly new to quilting and I was having trouble with something I'm working on.  After looking online for quite a while I finally gave up and decided to go right to the expert embroidery guy, Gene!  He doesn't even know me, but I sent him an e-mail and about two minutes later (I'm not kidding!) he responded with the answer to my question!!!  I couldn't believe it!!!  You've gotta go check out his blog and see everything he does!  He's awesome!!!  Thanks, Gene!!!  :o)

This is all I'm going to blog about right now.  I have two other things to write about, but I'm leaving bright and early in the morning (Yikes!  In just a few hours!) for several days to go to St. George, Utah, and I've gotta get some sleep.  There's some exciting things brewing in St. George, so if all goes well I'll let you in on it when I get back!

Have fun quilting while I'm gone!  :o)
