Polaroids and the winners!!!!!!

Hey yall! Boy, I sure did enjoy reading everyones comments and meeting so many new people during the Sew Mama Sew and my 101st blogpost giveaway! I found so many new and fun blogs to read and so many nice people! You guys are awesome! I also want to say a big huge WELCOME to all my new friends and followers. I am really looking forward to getting to know yall and visiting everyones blogs! I had 6 prizes available for the giveaway! The Aurifil thread packs were by far the most popular request! I recently started using Aurifil and have really enjoyed it so far. The main difference I see in Aurifil to the previous thread I was using is the reduction in the amount of lint. I think my machine seems to really like it too! :)  So lets get right to the giveaways and then I'll show yall what I have been working on this weekend!
The winner of the "Lovely" Charm Pack is:
The winner of the "Emma" 10" stacker is:
The four winners of the Aurifil thread are:

Ladies I will be emailing you shortly for your mailing addresses! Thank you to everyone for participating and I look forward to another 100 posts! I hope yall will stick around for that!
Yall these are Polaroid blocks. I had so much fun making these as part of the Global Scrap bee. Decembers Queen is Nesta of Ella and Nesta. Nesta is making a polaroid quilt for her girls to use when snuggling on the sofa and reading. We used a tutorial from Capitola Quilter. This was the first time I have made these blocks before and they were very easy and fun. So another quilt on my long list of to-do's!  I hope her girls like them!
 Well yall I had so much fun during the giveaway. I hope that yall had a great time too. I wish everyone could win a gift. I love sharing. So congratulations to the winners. I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season and I will see yall soon!

101st Blogpost and Giveaway!

Hey yall! Welcome to my 101st blog post and giveaway! I never dreamed that when I started this blog in February this year that I would be writing this post so soon. At least to me it seems like time has flown by. Without getting too mushy, I want to say thank you to all of you that have been here travelling along on my little sewing and farm adventures. Yall have come to mean sooooo much to me in such a short period of time.! I am truly grateful how yall have accepted me into this community! And have ALWAYS been there to help and guide me along. Things just aren't so quite and lonely on the farm anymore. I know all I have to do is sign in and someone will be there! And the inspiration and knowledge that yall have shared has been wonderful. I have learned so very much and really look forward to spending more time with yall!   Also this is my first time participating in the Sew Mama Sew giveaway! I wanted to have a couple of different items available. So we have a charm pack of "Lovely" by Debbie Beaves for RJR Fabrics, A 10" stacker of "Emma" ( gotta love pink and green) and 4 packages of Aurifil Thread. I am going to keep this short and simple because I know yall have ALOT of giveaways to enter, so to enter this giveaway just leave me a comment stating which item you would like to have. You have 6 to choose from. I will ship internationally.
This is open until Dec 13th at 5 pm. I will announce the winners via a blog post and email you. Please make sure to include an email address if you are a no reply blogger. So thats it , easy peasey!
     Also , I wanted to show yall my December Lucy Boston Block for Alex at She is planning her Patchwork of the Crosses in all red and white! It is going to be adorable!
  I just loved making this block. It will soon be on its way to Japan! Our "I Love Lucy Bee" is turning out to be so much fun. We are a mixed group from the United States, United Kingdom,Japan, Iran, Portugal and Switzerland! 
And I also wanted to give yall an update on Mr. K. He is doing some better. He is still very weak. I wish the weather would improve so he could get outside at least to the porch. And I want to thank all of you for your kind words and prayers. I am sorry I haven't emailed each of you individually. I just haven't had much time. K and AJ are a very special couple, not just to us but to everyone whos lives they have touched. Please continue to keep them in your hearts and prayers.
 Good luck on the giveaways yall!! And Thank yall for being there!
