Bitsy Says Thank You!

Bitsy says thank you to all of you who may have come to my blog sometime during the past few weeks to see if I’ve posted something new.  Thank you for for being so patient when you saw her photo over and over.  Thank you for understanding how busy her mom is, and how she just nevvvvvver lets her blog go this long unless she’s tethered to the computer.  And well, thank you for looking at Bitsy and not saying “oh it’s still that darn dog”.  If you did she forgives you.  She’s been suffering from attention deprivation too.

Sweet relief is on the way!  This week I can play just a bit and maybe you’ll even hear a few tweets!  I just  finished the last sample for market!  She jumped right off  The Night Before Christmas quilt.

So if you like this quilt…

You just might like my newest pincushion!

Bitty Mouse!

She’s ready to hold your pins, or forget the pincushion base and place her in your Christmas tree.  She’ll be so happy!  Why she could even peek out of a stocking or sit on your mantle.  And best of all?  She’s easy to make!  The pattern will be for sale on my web site Friday!

For all of you who entered my contest oh so long ago, if you guessed the name of my quilt I’ll be picking a winner this week!  Finally!  One of you is going to win a fun prize!  Yeahhhhh!! It’s about time don’t you think?

You’ll also get sneak peeks at new fabric and patterns.  All of this is happening because I’m in such a great mood!  I leave for market a week from Wednesday!

Hugs to each and every one of you!

  • Jackie Ro. - How adorable are Bitty Mouse, The Night Before Christmas Quilt teaser, and your adored Bitsy (Bitsy’s image is still in my head from her birthday blog)?!
    And I am excited that you are so happy/excited about your upcoming market journey. Bless you & yours dear blogger/market lady :)ReplyCancel

  • Louise - I never tire of looking at Bitsy’s sweet little face. Sounds like you are forging ahead with some very wonderful projects.ReplyCancel

  • Linda C - What a terrific pin cushion! The first quilt I made was a mice quilt for my daughter to celebrate her imaginary childhood friend so The Night Before Christmas Quilt will be her next birthday gift. Thanks so much for your delightful patterns. Will you also be at festival?ReplyCancel

  • Linda - No worries. I loved looking a Bitsy each time I came.ReplyCancel

  • Nancy C. in Utah - Anne…Bitty Mouse is tooo cute. I do believe she will be a must have for me…I also need to get the pattern for the adorable ‘Owl’ pin cushion (I apologize I’m in a brain fog and forget it name). I think they could be best friends sitting on a shelf together!!! Since my hubby surprised me a couple of days ago with the news that he is setting up the large extra room downstairs as a sewing room for me, I realized I need to start thinking about how to decorate it. (I’m so excited because I’ve just been shifting from one location to another through the house as I needed and it has been hard to really get going on things.) Yup, I think these two wonderful little ‘critters’ could be a perfect start for turning the room into ‘my very own space’. I should be moved in and ready to sew up a storm within the next month. In the meantime, I’ll be checking for sneak peeks of new fabrics and patterns every day! Sounds like you are ready for market and settling in to relax a bit. Good!!! You deserve it. OH, and tell Bitsy that she put a smile on my face every single time I found her looking at me when I checked your blog! Hugs…ReplyCancel
