Jeanne in Ohio has won the Traveling Stash Box!  She will be out of town RETREATING for a few days, but will ship it to her soon.  Loved looking at all of your blogs, keep an eye on hers if you want to try again.

I wish I could send all of you the box, oh well, keep trying!  Just another fun thing quilters do.

The Traveling Stash Box is SOOO cool!

I was recently the winner of the Traveling Stash Box #5.  What fun this is!  I posted a message to Nann's blog ( and was the winner.  This large box ended up on my front porch, and it was a bit like Christmas to sort through it.

So it's time for a new winner.  This box contains at least 18 yards of fabric, some patterns, notions, etc.  I've taken a few things I really like and replaced them with items out of my stash.

If you want a chance to win, post a comment to my blog about someone in your life, past or present, that has been a hugely positive influence on you and how.  No need to write a book, just a couple or few sentences.  On the evening of Sunday, March 2, I will randomly draw a winner, notify you and the box will come to you.  NOTE:  you MUST have a blog to qualify for the box.  Please be sure to let me know how to contact you also.

Note that the box ships to US residents only. In order to win you must have a blog. If you live in another country and/or you do not have a blog, you are welcome to leave a comment anyway.

Happy blogging!

Hand quilting challenge with Bonnie Hunter!

Bonnie Hunter issued a challenge to do one hour of hand sewing each day.  I guess many of her followers requested something like that so we could all be more productive on our hand projects sitting in the closet.

My grandma died over 2 years ago.  When she was a little bit sick (lung cancer) she told me she was bored and needed a hand quilting project to work on.  I got right on that!  I ordered a small whole cloth throw for her.  She complained, but secretly was thrilled (that's how she was) and got to work.

When she passed away, she was about 90% done.  So I've had this piece sitting around to finish since then.  I am not a hand quilter, but am willing to work on it.  So I'm going to get this finished up ASAP and throw it on the back of the sofa.

And I apologize for this photo, it was hard to get any real detail for white on white.  I'll work on a better shot when I get it done.

No worries, there is a KING sized quilt I pieced waiting for me to hand quilt when this is done, so this is just a warm up.
