Put your foot down #51

What’s under my foot?

Not much I can share as you’ll soon find out. Remember waaaay back in April when I began working on For the love of geese as an inventory quilt? Well, I promised a giveaway when it was over and although I had all the names written down I never actually drew a name because everything has been so wacked out, until yesterday. In addition to  the drawing  I’m giving away a second gift (no drawing for it).

Winner 1 from the drawing is Rosanne from Home Sewn by Us. 

The bonus winner is Anne-Marie from Stories from the Sewing Room.

Why the bonus winner you ask? Well, Anne-Marie participated in my Inventory Quilt SAL and she shared her progress in Put your foot down.

Both of these lovely ladies will be receiving a Stash Builders pack. Stash builders by Island Batik contain 5 rolls of 4 different prints 5″ x wof. Approximately 3 yards per pack. I’ll be sending you two an email requesting your addresses.  Congrats!

You’ll have to wait till next week to see what I am doing with the AccuQuilt GO!

See here to enter the Island Batik raffecopter for a chance to win one of two fq bundles this week and view the Hop Schedule.

The patchwork quilt using vintage fabric I was gifted is still waiting for binding. It’s up in the air because I have an abundance of the yellow and small scraps of the other colors.  I can’t decide if the binding will be yellow or yellow with a splash of the other colors.

Your shares from #50

If you don’t follow Turid from Den syende himmel  you really should. I am always fascinated with her unique projects, and owls. She shared one of her book pages last week.

Quilt Schmilt For The Love of Fabric (I love her blog name) shared her Irish Chain quilt. Isn’t this fabric so very elegant?

  1. Hi Denise, your patchwork quilt is going to be really lovely! Thanks for sharing your drive with us. We’re all getting used to doing virtual travelling 🙂 Take care,

    1. It is officially finished and I do love it. I thought the virtual tour might be a little refreshing.

    1. Yay. I have been so busy I’ve not looked at any of the linkups or my usual blog reading. I’ll catch up soon.

  2. Hi Denise! Aww, thanks so much for picking me as a winner. Congrats to Anne-Marie as well. That is so nice of you! Aww, Enzo thought the ride and treats were a fabulous way to spend a Saturday!! Wow, those flood waters were really high!! And, you’re making me jealous with all the donut munching! HAHA! Love, love, LOVE all the photos you shared. And a nap for sweet Enzo. Duly earned for sure. Thanks for the fun ride. ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Glad you enjoyed it. It’s nice to get a little more personal once in a while but a struggle considering I am a private person. Enzo was just so darned cute. We were on our way to town and talking to him as usual (smh) he started licking when I was talking about donuts so I snapped a picture and wondered how I would fit that into a post.

  3. Enzo is so cute. My Yorkshire Terrier Ginger would love him. We don’t get out much ourselves either. Groceries and the bank, our 4 big trips each month. Can’t say that groceries are in the day time. Our local stores offer senior hours on Tuesday and Thursday, at 6am to 7am. Seems like the middle of the night. Husband has been baking though.

    1. Pretty much the only thing I leave home for is the grocery store and lately its been every 2 weeks. Living so far from town we hit all the stops on our list while we are there. If we gorget something that isn’t urgent it gets pushed off to the next outing. Saturday though, we went out just for the pie. 6-7am is a little early for my husband to be out and about, he has to wake up and read the paper, eat his breakfast … Me, I can climb out of bed, dress and brush my teeth and I am ready to go.

  4. Thanks for picking me as a winner! 😀 I also really enjoyed the tour around your town. I have not left my neighborhood in six weeks, so the change of scenery is very much appreciated!

    1. It’s always interesting to see someone else’s view. I’ll snap some photos of Grafton when I mail your package.

  5. Thanks for the tour of your world, its so pretty. Mine has become so small, last weeks visit to the Bernina dealer was my big adventure. Wish I could have a donut too.

    1. It was a pretty big adventure for us too. Normally I only go to town once a week pre virus, now its every 2 weeks and it would be longer if milk and eggs lasted longer. We left early to avoid as many people as possible and as you could see from roads we succeeded.
