Update on my "Followers" button

So ages ago I turned off my button for "followers" because there were none- and that just looked pathetic! I forgot I did that- because it was quite some time ago, until everyone was mentioning it in their posts for the giveaway! OOPS!

It's back up there now and there (happily!) are way more than zero followers now.
So all of you lovelies who are Following me, or wish to I am sorry and thank you for your patience with my forgetful ways!

Toodles for now.

Spring Activities Giveaway-sign ups closed

Giveaway winner announced!

The lucky winner of this weeks giveaway is.........

email me with your mailing address Pokey
Spring activities
are beginning again around here. My kids are in softball and had the first practice Saturday. It finished right before the rain and snow came. We got about 5" of snow on Saturday and few more Sunday morning. The snow has all melted off now-- that is another thing I love about spring here. When it snows, the snow does not stay long after-and sometimes if you wait a few hours you don't have to shovel it because it is all gone!.

It is sunny again and the birds are chirping. I want these skates back! They are just like the ones I wore when I was 11!

Other things we do in the spring....
Fly kites
Make cookies for the Easter Bunny
start BBQing again Yum!
Play softball
ride bikes
rollerskating may be big here this spring because my oldest wants the "old fashioned kind of skate" like her mom and aunt Kelley had. I will of course need some too--skating is fun and great exercise!
Gardening-we love to plant, but hate weeds!
Sew like crazy
I like to go "junking" at thrift shops and yard sales
smell the blossoms and pick the flowers
take long walks and long drives

And I personally, spend all spring getting ready for Market-the kids help with that too!

Here is what you can win......
1 Layer Cake of Fig Tree Quilts' Fresh Cottons

(simply gorgeous fabric)
2 of my patterns (because I couldn't decide which one, and they both work great with a layer cake or charm squares)
a surprise goody that will be wonderful too!

Giveaway time!

GIVEAWAY!!!! Sign UPs are closed!

The lucky winner is........# 132 Anita In Florida Congratulations! please email me with your mailing address

So last week I promised to do a giveaway.... Well
time has a tendency to get away from me.

In honor of our beautiful Rocky Mountains here in Utah coming alive with spring again, I am going to host a giveaway.

Crocus in bloom, tulips popping up through the soil, snow capped mountains and no snow on the ground, the grass is getting greener, my flowering almonds are budding, and the cats cannot stand to be inside any longer!

All you need to do is leave a comment (and your email addy) telling me what says spring has arrived in your region. Oh and tell all your bloggy friends too because it's open to everyone whether or not spring is spring-ing in your area!

I just want to tell everyone how much I am enjoying reading about spring in every part of the world! It is so much fun to know that we all love spring for so many reasons. And just so you all know there is still plenty of 'brown' and mud here too-but I am always refreshed knowing my favorite season is back.

The lucky winner will get a Layer Cake of Moda's Oddyssea Line and one of my Delectable Cakes patterns
This pattern Delectable Cakes is available through my website So if you don't win it- you can still get it!!!! It is super fun and easier than it looks!

Enter by Saturday March 13th at 9 PM MST. I will announce the winner on Sunday March 14th.

Eva's Sunday Best Schnibble

This is my Schnibble quilt for February. I made it from a Layer Cake I had of Eva fabrics. I love the colors in this line and I used bigger squares and made my quilt 62" square rather than the small version. I also set the blocks a little differently than the instructions on the pattern indicate. The border is just extra strips leftover. I used almost every piece of every Layer Cake square. That always feels like a treat not to have any leftover fabrics.

So my Sunday Best was finished on Sunday!

And Keep Posted-----I am going to run a giveaway this week, in celebration of Spring arriving early for us here in the Rockies!
