Veterans Day Giveaway!!!!!!!!!



I just love it when I have a day of. I love this country and I am grateful for all the veterans and their sacrifices for our freedoms. I just hope we continue to deserve their service.

I have spent my day cleaning and sewing. I don't normally get that chance. It seems like I am to tired to do both when I come home and sewing trumps cleaning any day, specificly quilting.

These blocks were done by the city quilt group and I got them to put together. Hawaiian Fabrics with a green Hawaiian floral on the back. I started to quilt it yesterday and my machine bit the dust. It just started to go slower and slower until it just wouldn't go any more. I had just purchased a used janome to put on my quilt frame and it came last week so my husband was fixing it so I could put it on there in place of the other. I guess it was in the nick of time.

I believe it is time for a giveaway. I haven't had one in a long time so here goes. I am giving away an Advent panel called ALPINE WONDERLAND PANEL RED by Sheri Berry Designs from Riley Blake. Along with the backing fabric ALPINE WONDERLAND TREES WHITE.  
The tutorial for the calendar is on my previous post.

Just leave a comment telling me what you are thankful for and leave a comment if you are a follower. I will choose a winner on Saturday. Thanks so much for coming by.
