Labor Day GiveAway

 Well we have been doing a little labor of our own. In the top photo you see the side view of the 5 foot flower bed that ran the width of our home. Sadly the home was sagging a little. In the bottom photo you see our home with no skirting or flower bed.

The resident handy man (hubby dear) with a teeny tiny bit of my help started digging out the flower bed next to the house. Mind you the bed was 5 feet by 28 feet and probably a couple of feet deep. He was using his handy shovel and wheel barrow because he didn't want to destroy my flower bed.

After a week, I says dear why don't you take the back hoe and dig it out. What about the flowers he asks. It was okay with me to just do it the quickest way. I can always plant more flowers. So this is what we have and a concrete foundation is going under the sides.









So for all of you hard working quilters out there, I am going to have a fat quarter give away. I have two fat quarter bundles with these seven fabrics in them. So a total of 14 fat quarters. Just leave a comment on what you are planning to do on Labor Day. For a second chance be a follower or become a new follower. I will pick a winner next weekend.

Also from Monday the 26 till Monday the 1st of September I will have a promotional 20% off your whole purchase, including sale items from my Inchworm store. It will automaticly be given when you check out, no codes or vouchers to have to remember.

  3. I can't believe Labor Day is soon upon us. My mom is in town visiting from MN for the month, so we will have my daughters family over and have a cookout and great visit.

  4. Good luck with your foundation, you have a great hubby. I have some daisies I'd be so happy to give you, they are over taking all my gardens! We are going exploring on Labor Day, visiting Hole in the Rock at Lake Powell. Then my daughter is helping us make laundry soap. Thanks.

  25. My husband an I spent the last couple of days cleaning up our car port and the backyard with plans to have a BBQ and pool party. Of course the weather was beautiful for the cleaning part but now because its time for the celebrating they are calling for severe thunder storms with terenchal rain! I'm actually the only one that doesn't mind because now I will be celebrating the holiday in my craft room quilting to the sounds of the rain and thunder! Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend.
