Sneak peek at August giveaway

Okay ladies, thanks so much for all the great advice on allergy remedies. I've used a NeilMed rinse pretty religiously for years, just started using the honey and take Claritin every day. Still miserable at times. My latest attempt at relief has been to see a homeopathic allergist. She uses the concept of "the hair of the dog that bit you" plus applied physiology/accupressure. One visit and I'm nearly dancing for joy! My niece has had horrible headaches for years and finally found relief with a sacro/cranial massage therapist and this allergist. I've been to both and love them! Kansas City is three hours away, but I'm dedicated to making the trip once a month until I conquer my headaches. Bio-identical hormones are next on the list.

Enough about my issues (but thanks for listening) and on to the good stuff. Start your list of KT fabric lines for the August giveaway - a fat 1/8 bundle of the new KT Favorites line! The first quilter to email me the 10-years of KT fabrics - at ktquilts@twinvalley.net - wins! There will be 2nd and 3rd place winners, as well. I'm going to give tips each week in August to help out. The first one is: there are 33 collections from #1-Stitches on the Oregon Trail I to the newest #33-KT Favorites Basic line. Good luck and watch for more tips next week!

Lois and I are off to Grand Junction, CO for a visit to Quilter's Corner quilt shop. Come see us Friday night for our program or Sat. for the workshop.

July Giveaway

Sheila Fisher, please send your snail mail address so we can ship your prize for June - a Summer's End pattern booklet and 2 Summer's End Candy Bars.

Time to announce the new giveaway for July. We've just sent the next installation of patterns for the KT Stash Society to the quilt shops - wanna get in on them early??? This month, you will take home all 5 of the latest projects - 2 are pictured at left.

Any advice on allergies? We're living in the middle of a wheat field with a pasture of brome grass next door. My head can't deal with all the pollen flying around in the air. After doctoring through the usual sources for years, I'm seeking some non-traditional sources this week, but would take any help/advice you all can give.
I'll update you later this week.

June's Winner....

Congratulations to sheilafisher@verizon.com! You're the lucky winner of a Summer's End booklet and 2 Candy Bars of Summer's End fabrics. Please email me with your mailing address and we'll send them out next week.

Lois and I have been sewing this week on the new KT Favorites fabric, making a quilt and a couple extra projects for a booklet with the KC Star for fall - Border Garden. Sounds like a long ways away, but it needs to go to the quilter next week with photos on the calendar for the first of August. Whew! I'll post a pic before I send it.

Family coming in this weekend and I don't even have my red/white/blue on yet. Better go load up the car with holiday cheer before the gang arrives. Hope you all have a safe and happy 4th.

Watch for the announcement of our July giveaway next week.
