Blog Hop Party with Giveaways!

Yay!!!  It's finally here!  It's time for the Blog Hop Party that we've all been waiting for!  I love these because it gives me a chance to see some INCREDIBLE blogs, meet GREAT people, and, of course, enter LOTS of giveaways!  Did I mention there are giveaways???  EVERY blog in this party is having a giveaway for the next week!  How cool is that?!?!?  :o)

To hop along, just go to Quilt Gallery (or click on the cute button on the side of my blog) any time after midnight on March 17th (wear your green for good luck!) to see the list of all the blogs that are participating.  Then visit those blogs, look around a bit, and register for their giveaway!  Simple!!!  :o)

So what am I giving away?  Usually there's a picture in the post for these kinds of things, but today is different.  You see, I don't know what I'm giving away yet because I'm going to let YOU pick your prize!  Yep!  The winner of my giveaway will win two charm packs of their choice!!!  Pretty sweet, huh?!?!?  :o)

You have two chances at winning those charm packs:
1.  Become a follower of my blog and leave me a comment telling me that you are.  If you are already a follower (love ya!) then tell me that in your comment.  Easy.
2.  Leave a comment telling me which two charm packs you'd like if you were picked to be the winner!  NOT so easy.  How will you choose???  :/

The party will be open until March 23rd at 10:00 p.m. (MT).  I'll choose a winner from the comments and notify you by e-mail on March 24th!  Make sure you have an e-mail linked with your comment or I'll have to pick someone else!  :`(

Good luck and have a fantabulous day hopping around!!!  :o)


Gettin' Ready for Easter!

I'm so excited!  My sister, Bonnie, and I went shopping the other day for fabric to make an Easter skirt for her daughter, Breanna.  My sister doesn't sew (yet!) so she asked me to make it.  Because I'm fairly new to this whole quilting/sewing stuff I'm excited to give this a try!!!  :o)  This is the skirt pattern my sister found at Everyday Chaos. Isn't it the CUTEST thing ever?!?!? I think it'll be so darling on my niece!

This is the fabric she chose!  Isn't it so pretty?!?!?! It's called "Verona" from Riley Blake.  The greens and browns work so well together!  I'm lovin' it!!! :o)

So, of course, I couldn't leave the quilt shop without getting some fabric to make my granddaughter a skirt, too!  What kind of grandma would I be if I did that?!?!?  So I picked up some of this for Cambria's skirt . . .

Don't you just LOVE it?!?!?  This fabric is from "Papillon" by 3 Sisters.  I am so in love with these colors and prints!!!  I think it'll make such a sweet little skirt for my sweet little granddaughter!  I'll definitely show you pictures when it's done!

Well I better get busy, busy, busy!  LOVE IT!!!  :o)
