I thought it would be fun to host a little contest as a kind of change of pace . The prize will be a good sized baggie full of fabric ( lots of silk , satin ect ..) maybe some neat buttons , trims , beads ,threads ect... I really need to clean out some of my stash and thought this would be a fun way to do it. I will have y'all post a comment and then on the LAST day of Jan I will put all the names into a bowl and have my daughter draw a name out - maybe a couple of names if I get lots of comments.

Well yesterday I didn't get quite as far as I wanted with my fans. It took forever to hunt through all of my fabric's to find what I thought would be suitable . Then when I laid them all out together it was way to pastel looking so off to Goodwill I went. I was able to find a few silk shirts (yesterday was thier 50 cent sale ) I have decided that I will do 2 blocks for each month , that will give me a total of 24 by the end of the year . If I add sashing it will make a nice sized CQ , now I'm crossing my fingers that I will be able to go through with it and it won't land by the wayside as I would really like to give it to my oldest daughter Cheyenne. Stay tuned for some pic's after I get home tonight y'all

Carol-Anne does the most amazing embroidery I have ever seen , I've just spent the last 45 min reading her blog - so grab yourself a cuppa and get ready for a great read !! Now I really am off to go pull fabric's for that fan block.

This our new baby Sadie girl . I bought her last Saturday , she is a 1/2 pound Chihuahua. Unknown to us she had a really bad case of pnemonia ( spellings probley off on that ! ) I have about lost her a few times now but I think she is finally on the mend. I'll post more pic's of this sweet little baby in a few day's . Y'all just please keep her in your thoughts that she is able to pull through this .
