See You In July

Just kidding! .....maybe.  Yesterday, I received an email that blew me out of the water.  Debbie, from Jerusalem Notes, had a give-away for a 6-month subscription to The Quilt Show, with Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims.  And she was emailing me to let me know.....I WON.

Edyta Sitar, Patsy Thompson, Jo Morton, Cheryl Lynch, and a bunch of people who I don't know but will know soon.  Classes - projects - forums - I'm in heaven.  You know, I've never taken a class in my life, and we don't get quilting shows on tv here.  My computer probably won't be off til summer.  I've watched one show, haven't even scratched the surface of what's at this site.  Debbie, I am so very grateful, thank you!  I know I'm going to learn a lot!

I do have a couple of tutorials for you today, as well.  Stephanie from Loft Creations has the most adorable No Bake Cupcakes ever:

aren't they sweet, and no calories!  Thank you Stephanie for sharing these!



And next is Renee, from Goosie Girl; a precious Embroidered Pin Case:

Too cute or what!  I think I need three  - thank you Renee!  She has also put up a darling free quilt pattern, The Ice Cream Quilt, it's making me long for summer!


More tutorials to come - including mine - if there is ever enough light to take pics!  If the sun is shining at your house, say hello to it for me, will you?  I miss it and want it back.  *G*

Hi Allie
You will love the quilt show... I look forward to hearing how it goes. I have too many projects already without being tempted -

So many lovely things to make - quilters are just so generous...

Lots of sunshine here - will try to send some your way...

Congratulations! I'm so happy for you and so envious. I love to watch quilting shows. You'll have to tell us all you learn as you go along. Love your links too. That needle case is so cute!

Oh Wow! Congratulations Allie! What a great prize. It's the gift that keeps on giving ;-)

Debbie said...

It's so nice to see you so excited, Allie. I'm so glad you won! Enjoy!

Cyndi said...

Oh wow, Allie, congratulations! That is so cool. I have no idea who any of those people are, but have seen them on others' blogs so know they are "biggies" in the quilting world! Have fun with that, but do save some time for us! Hee hee!

Great tutes, too. I have so many tutorials saved now that I'll have to live forever to make them all. Hope there is sewing in heaven!

XOXO,

Cyndi

If you do get any extra sun send some up this way. tired of gray and rain.

I'm saying hello to the sun for you . . . a rare sunshiny day here in the upper Midwest, but of course I can hardly keep my eyes open because of snow-blindness! And unfortunately, sunshine in MN in the winter means COLD.

Mama Pea said...

There really is no sun in MI in the winter, is there?!

Love your goodies! I have been a TQS member for three years now (just starting my third year). I love it and so will you!

Kelly@ Charming Chatter said...

Congrats on the big win - sounds like such fun! And, thanks for sharing - both of those projects are so cute!! Can't wait to see yours. Mr. Sun has been gone for a long time here - and I miss him too!

Stephanie said...

Thank you for the link back. I hope everyone enjoys their cupcakes. Congratulations on your win.

What a fun WIN :))) I once took an on-line class to make felt because there are no classes near me. I found it really helpful and I plan on taking one on photography sometime when I have the time.

Love the embroidery needle case ~
