Whirlwind Weekend Wrap-Up … and Giveaway Winners


I had a crazy-fun and crazy-busy weekend–my 4-year-old and I took a quick trip to Washington, D.C., where we met my mom, sister, and grandma, who were all in from different cities around the country. My grandma has been wanting to see the World War II Memorial, so we decided to get together there. We had beautiful weather, an amazing suite at the Mayflower Hotel, delicious meals, and even better conversation among four generations of chatty ladies—so much fun! Then just a few hours after my plane landed on Sunday, it was my turn to host my book club. By the time I collapsed on the couch at about 10 p.m. Sunday night, I was wiped out.

So obviously I didn’t do any sewing this weekend. But I did finish my Three Generations quilt and present it to the other two generations involved. And yes, I knocked out that binding just in the nick of time! In fact, I had to finish sewing about three-quarters of a side on Friday night in D.C., while we sat around chatting in the hotel suite. Only problem is: With all the craziness of traveling with a 4-year-old, I forgot to take pictures of the completed quilt before it was shipped off to its permanent home! Can you believe it? Oops. But I think I can get my mom to take a picture of it, so hopefully I’ll have a “real” wrap-up on that quilt later in the week.

But enough about me: I’ve got giveaway winners to announce!

Winner #1, who gets the custom-designed blog header (or button, quilt label, whatever she wants) is … #17, Elizabeth D. of Don’t Call Me Betsy!! I love her blog, so I’m happy to be designing something for it! Yay, Elizabeth! : )

Winner #2, the winner of the Mod Charm fat quarters, is #72, Jane P.!

Congrats, ladies! I’ll send you both an email. And thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who entered. Hosting a giveaway is so much fun, I hope I can do it again very soon. And I’ve added many great new blogs to my Reader, so I’m looking forward to hearing more from all of you!
