The winner is....

The winner of the Butterfly Garden Charm Pack is..... Melody! Congrats! Please email me your mailing address and we'll get it sent out to you right away. I'll post next month's giveaway right after Thanksgiving.

We're actually getting some light snow here this morning with an inch or two expected by evening. Sounds like a good day to stay home and quilt!

Almost Time!

Okay Ladies,
It's almost time to draw for a Butterfly Garden charm pack. We'll do the drawing Sunday afternoon and post Monday morning.

Lois and I travelled to Emporia, KS to present 2 guild programs on Tuesday. They bought every other precut I had one me, but I saved one of the Butterfly Garden! Too fun! Good bunch of quilters, many had been to our retreats so was fun to see them again.

Finally got a new battery that actually works for my camera so will be posting more pics next week. Why is technology so complicated??? Or is it just me? My son claims I am techo-tarded when it comes to computers or anything electronic. I tell him that's why I keep him around.

See ya Monday,

Win A Butterfly Garden Charm Pack!

It's easy to enter - just comment on my blog during the next couple of weeks and we'll draw a winner on Nov. 15th! Butterfly Garden is the newest KTQ collection to be delivered to quilt shops in February 2010, so be the first on your block to have a piece of each of the new fabrics. Watch here the first of each month for a new drawing.

We had a great time this weekend partying with the big kids and the little kids. On Friday night, my twin sons had a costume party for their 30th birthday. Robert and I were the only ones there over 35, but blended fairly well even if we didn't have elaborate costumes like most of the attendees. There were witches of every description, a headless horseman, Jason with hockey mask and knife, HellBoy, a ninja and even Barney & Betty from the Flintstones. It was good to catch up with some of the boys' friends that we hadn't seen for years.

Then, on Halloween, all the grandkids got together to go trick-or-treating. Cooper was a zombie doctor. The costume had lots of blood and guts - which I was informed is important at age 8. Aleece was a "pretty" witch and Delainey was a pumpkin witch - both too cute. Bronson's Mom had made him a Chewbacca costume from the Star Wars series, but he was sick and opted to stay home. Too much walking, too much candy, too much excitement - a good time was had by all. Oh yes, Robert's dog, Gus, went as a hot dot complete with bun and mustard. He was the hit of the night.

Lois, my trusty piecer/quilter and travel companion, leave Thursday for Grand Island, NE to teach at Nana's Country Quilt Shop. We will share quilts and stories in a trunk show on Thursday evening, then teach a raw edge applique class on Friday. Next Tuesday, we'll be travelling to Emporia, KS to entertain the ladies at the morning and evening quilt guilds. Join us if you're close!

Check our website later in the week for the newest KT Stash Society Newsletter under the KT Stash Society link. Read the newsletter, then sign up to receive the Stash Society projects from one of the participating shops listed. Each month we make a small quilt, table topper, pillow, bag or even a Christmas stocking using KT fabrics. It's fun to use bits of your stash to create a new project and add to your stash with the newest fabrics. There are lots of great things coming next year, too, so join us now!

Back to work.......... Lynne
