Contest Winner!

Sorry I'm a day late in announcing the winner of the Quilter's Newletter Best of Christmas magazine!  I was hoping for more posts and I did manage to get 3 by tonight, but I can't wait any longer for a winner, so I wrote numbers 1-3 for comments 1st through the last, down on a piece of paper, folded and put them in a bowl and tossed them around.  My husband drew from the bowl and the lucky winner is Sandy!  So Sandy, please send me your address and I will mail your magazine out to you right away!
Thanks all of you for participating!  I know I haven't been able to post as often as I'd like to, but I do really appreciate all of you who visit and read my blog very much.  You are all an inspiration to me, and it is wonderful to be able to share my love of quilting with you.

October is here and it is an exciting month!  So far, we have had HUGE thunderstorms, lots of lighning in the sky and have been awakend in the middle of the night with the heavy rains during the last week.
Here's a quick shot out the front door of what it has been like!  The temps have now dropped too, well at least for us, and we are enjoying the cooler weather!
October means Halloween, Houston Fall Market and the end of daylight savings time.  It also means soon we will have warm homemade soup on the stove and cuddle up under lap quilts in the evening doing stitchery and watching movies!   Quilt projects will be completed this month, and the new season will go into full swing with Christmas decorations up in the stores before Halloween even gets here!  I have just a few sneak peaks for you of new quilts for Market.
This is a Nancy Mahoney line by P&B Textiles.  I seem to really be into doing applique lately. I don't know why, but it has been a fun change.  Just a lot more work!
Robyn Pandolph with her usual beautiful florals in yummy colors.  I've always loved her fabric lines!  Now she is designing for RJR Fabrics!  This quilt will be in an upcoming magazine issue in a few months.
This is a little table topper I'm having fun with for the fall season.  I still have to quilt and bind it, but I can do that in November!  Also in November I plan to do some stitchery, and my favorite new magazine is the Vignette.  I just got my Vol 4 issue! I'm collecting them all, they are really awesome!
It is chock full of goodies, both recipes and stitchery projects that look like so much fun.  Maybe I can work on my stitchery quilt that is in progress and really relax. Relax? I think I'm jumping the gun just a bit right now.  It's only Oct 7th! 
Keep Quilting!
