2 Winners!

The winner of the Meadow Waltz charm pack is Dawnmarie;   Brenda can claim the charm pack for Farmyard Friends. Congratulations to both of you ladies and thanks for hanging out at my blog.

Seems the weekends are never long enough. Robert and I made a quick trip to Windsor, CO Friday evening to see some dear friends, Connie & Chuck Huddleson. Connie is the proprietor of The Little Wool Shoppe in Windsor, featured in APQ's Quilt Sampler a couple years ago. While the guys caught up on their fish stories, Connie and I shopped at a wonderful antique/home dec store, Cottage Rose. Inspiration was everywhere from July 4th displays to wonderful hanging lanterns and birdcages for the porch to innovative lighting options. Connie purchased 3 wire baskets to mount on a board and electrify for a delightfully prim fixture over her new kitchen island. Very cool. I would love to find a great old colander or basket to do the same over my kitchen table. Maybe next trip.

I brought home a 3-tier wire basket that will work perfectly at market to display little quilts and a pair of oatmeal linen drapes for summer that are sheer enough to let in light but add a little color with a double red ticking-like stripe. I can't wait for the weekend to get out all my summer patriotic stuff, switch out all the quilts to red/tan/navy and hang my new curtains. Til then, have a fun summer and watch for another Charming Thursday charm pack giveaway this week.


  1. Congratulations to Brenda and Dawnmarie! Glad you found some items to use in your home and booth. Guess I should put binding on my patriotic quilt:)

  2. I drove by The Little Wool Shoppe in Windsor on our last trip to Colorado....just to torment myself as I knew she was closed for the Christmas holidays! Next trip I hope to get inside!!

  3. Congrats to the lucky winners. The Cottage Rose shop sounds lovely. Wish I lived close enough to visit your friends shop as well.

  4. Thank you so much. I've ordered the farmyard friends pattern and can't wait to start on the baby quilt. Thanks again!
