Petunia Bud Fairy Giveaway

I love all my customers and friends.....and I want to say thank you for  almost  a year of  making these little dolls.  I feel so fortunate to have found something in my life that gives me so much pleasure.

The little doll will be a 10" Petunia Bud Fairy made with a soft thick boulce with pink highlights and a little fairy dress/leggings and wool felt fairy wings.

Please just leave me a way to get in touch with you if you would like to enter. Everyone is invited to enter. I will have Brodie eat a name,  pull a name on Wednesday 2/2. LOL  Some of my longtime readers will remember Brodie's way of picking names.
Here are some pictures of my fairies:



Take care,
Cathy

Charmed Whirlygig Quiltalong Fabric Needs

Thank you to Jacque for posting on the flickr page the fabric requirements when my internet connection was being wonky.  
Here is what she posted:
***So...here's what you need to make a whirlygig quilt...
2 charm packs. Yes, two. Of the same fabric collection. Two charms makes one whirlygig. If your charm pack has 42 charms, you'll finish with 42 whirlygigs...for a 6 x 7 square layout.
You'll also need about 1.5 yards of background fabric. 
You'll need more fabric for the borders (if desired), backing, and binding.****


Here is my fabric just waiting to be cut into....I am so excited about using the "Bliss" fabric. 
I have a yard of the blue  for my border and 1/2 of a yard of the red for the binding.  I always say this quilt is a "cheap but cheerful" one to make. :-)
Looking forward to seeing you on the 6th of February,
Cathy

Are you ready for a Quiltalong?

I know that there are football fans that wouldn't miss the Superbowl for love or money , but then there are those of us....who  can take it  or leave it. LOL

So for those who are interested I thought it would be fun to have the Charmed Whirlygig Quiltalong starting Sunday, February the 6th.

I will get back in a few days with fabric requirements, but if you want to see the pattern  now there is a link on the  right side of this blog.  Please feel free to add your name to the flickr group and check out the beautiful Whirlygig quilts that others have made.

Here is a picture of one that I have made:

Take care all and hope to see you soon!
