200. Wow. I have so much fun creating, and writing, and as a thank you to you for joining me for this, my 200th post on this blog, a little giveaway for you.
But first, tell me what have you been working on this week, the last week before Christmas. I was frantically binding a throw quilt for my in-laws…I had a two week diversion to make my Makers Tote, then I realized I didn’t have time to finish the binding before they arrived on the 17th, but fortunately they left again, a side trip to my brother-in-law’s house (taking my daughter–woohoo, party for mom and dad!).
I originally was going to complete the binding by machine, but while watching the recorded version of Quiltcam by Bonnie Hunter, her words convinced me to hand bind. Four days, that should be enough time, shouldn’t it? Whoops, bad math again, if I want to get it done before they return (this time to the cottage), I only have two days. Ouch, my wrist hurts. Nothing else bothers it like hand binding. So if you peek at my instagram, or here on Flickr, you can see more pics of the Yuma Quilt, and I will share more here next week.
So as my Christmas gift to one of you, I have purchased this yummy bundle of Eden, by Tula Pink. The pixelated tiger is just freaky, isn’t it? To enter, leave me a tale of what last minute finish you completed this week (binding on the car trip?, perhaps a quick tote bag for the friend who took your kids for a day so you could clean house?), and if you leave me a link, I’ll pop by and say hi! (Links are not mandatory). One comment per person, and I will ship anywhere in the world. I will close this giveaway on December 29 at 8 pm EST. **Comments now closed**
Happy Christmas and blessings on you and your household for 2016. (PS, while you’re here you can go back to my previous post to sign up for my 2016 Canadians paper piecing bee).
