Whooping It Up Week! A Give Away to Celebrate!

This week there were a couple of little surprises for me that gave rise to whooping it up!! It wasn't due to anything I did or accomplished much in the way of sewing or quilting because I was steep into taking care of client's stuff, stuff being reports and budgets this past week.

Karen from Charlotte Modern Quilt Guild asked if she could feature the Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls that I shared during "Share and Tell." Practically jumping up and down I said of course! Want to read more about it you can find the story here by clicking on the button below. 

Charlotte Modern Quilt Guild

On the sidebar there are buttons that link to various progress
blog messages about the Rag Dolls.

Woohoo!! I won, I won!

 Lily Pad Quilting hosted Pets On Quilts in August and I was 1 out of 26 who won in their drawing of many sponsored quilting goodies.  

What did I win?



A Stack of 40 precut 10" squares of Bali Crackers - Rum Raisin by Hoffman

Isn't this gorgeous batik fabric?

I am still waiting for delivery. I was contacted earlier in the week by a Hoffman representative letting me know it was being mailed this week.

Maybe today I hope?

This morning I finished the modern Andy Outfits for the 15 inch  and 20" dolls. Below are photos of  the companion clothing for 15" and 20" Raggedy Ann and Andy.



Adorable? Yes!



I managed to add the frames to the star blocks during my busy, busy week! More whooping!



On my dog tired days when I was too tired to sew I pinned an assortment of quilts on display. Inspiration set in. I took a few of the quilts made and displayed across the stair banner. A friend of mine has been asking, "How many quilts have you made? not once but twice. Both times I stated, I don't know I have lost count! Need some ideas on how to display? If so check out my "Quilt Board Display" on Pinterest.





Since it has been a Whooping Up week I thought I would celebrate with a giveaway!

What am I giving away?



Simple Vintage Jellies from JoAnn Fabrics.
There are 20 pieces of pastel florals, stripes and other designs in this roll.

And because it is the reason for the season

  18. I follow you thru LinkIn but now I see other ways too. I really loved your Cuddle Quilt but then I love cats so it caught my eye. I also checked out the Guild and think its awesome that you are all making bags for Red Cross volunteers...something I hadn't thought of that they might need. And I took your survey too!
