It’s September 5th and if you read my newsletter today you know that we have 2 winners in the “I Love My Pet” contest! What an exciting end to a wonderful month!
Congratulations Franklin & Terry!
Terry give Franklin a hug. He won you a great first prize!
Then, drum roll please….
We also gave out a second prize!
Chelsea loves kids and she thought this picture was the cutest ever! So we added a second place prize for Ronnie and his best friend Jack! Alyssa, Ronnie’s mom, submitted this photo and I think you’ll agree it’s a winner!
Speaking of winners, I had a dickens of a time trying to get Chelsea to pick one. Truth be told I think she was a bit intimidated by the rabbit. She was not about to put her paws up on that bunny. The star of Bunny Hill has a mind of her own!
I even tried Bitsy and Mooch. No luck at all!
I’m surrounded by pets at Bunny Hill and not one would co-operate!
Life is never dull around here! I had to go to a a random number drawing instead!
And now to bring our pet contest to a close, I have one more photo for you. Meet “Sis” who belongs to Bernice, a special customer. She sent us this darling photo in the mail. Thank you Bernice for taking the time to share Sis with us! She is adorable! Love that little pink tongue!
This Pet contest been so much fun! Thank you again to each and everyone!
And now are you ready for a bit more quilting?
It’s Snowbound Time!
Block Eight of Snowbound is ready to go!
If you’ve been keeping up with the Snowbound blocks, your quilt should be looking something like this:
Don’t jump ahead and look at block number ten! You didn’t really think I’d show it to you did you? You’ll have to wait until October!. Three more blocks to go! It’s not too late if you haven’t already started!
I love notions and I love to share my favorite ones with you. I tried this Omnigrid little rotary cutter when I was preparing the templates for my new block of the month. Smooth templates mean smooth applique! I fell in love with it.
Any drawing with a straight line, or a slightly curved edge can be cut accurate and smoothly with this little cutter. It gives you great control and the blade is pressure sensitive. It retracts when you lift up the cutter!
Try it when cutting templates for houses, doors, windows, presents, etc. Use a ruler to guide you and cut away! Then try cutting a curved piece by pressing down on the ruler and turning the template. You’ll find it here on my web site and I think you’ll love it!
Tiny Town on Sale!
And don’t forget, Tiny Town is on sale this month for 25% off. This applies to my wholesale customers also! If you haven’t purchased this quilt, now is the time to do it!
Have a great weekend everyone! Hope you get a lot of sewing done!
