It's Time to Announce ALL of the Winners....
Thank you for all of your wonderful comments during the tour. I went through and re-read them, and it so warmed my heart that you all had such kind things to say. Your support has meant so much to me. I really wish that I could send a book to every single one of you!I have really enjoyed sharing this little journey with you..... But boy am I tired! It's kind of like coming home from a whirlwind vacation- you had a great time and you have wonderful memories, but you are pooped out!
So I know you are thinking, yeah yeah, blah blah blah, WHO WON???? I have sent emails to all of the winners. So without further ado, the winners, chosen at random, are:
Day 1- Quiltma
Day 2- Heather R.
Day 3- Ramona
Day 4- Barb
Day 5- Katie M.
Winners from other giveaways were:
Pat Sloan's winner- Cathie L.

I haven't received the names for the winners on the other blogs yet. As I mentioned, the winners have been sent emails. If you didn't get one, I'm so sorry! But thanks for touring with us!
If you didn't win and you'd like to purchase a copy of the book, there are several places where it is available:
Kansas City Star Website
And of course- it is available in your favorite local quilt shop! (If it isn't, be sure to ask them to order it.....)
If you are a shop owner, the book is available through Checker, Moda (United Notions), or directly from Kansas City Star (email me and I'll send you the contact information).
So now that the HOOPLA has died down, I am spending some time today working on a project for my next book. (I will let you in on a little secret- I just submitted the proposal a few days ago, and I haven't heard back yet.... but I am so excited about this little project that I'm working on it on faith that it will be in the next book....) This morning I went through my stash for some fabrics:
orange.... guess I'll have to go to the quilt shop this week.... don't you just HATE when that happens?....
This weekend, I started doing some embroidery for the project:
After years of denial and eye strain, and with my birthday approaching next week, I finally broke down and wore these:
Yep, the magnifiers have been in my desk drawer for 2 years... but I have managed to talk myself out of wearing them. But finally, this weekend, I could resist no longer. I did a little stitching Saturday night and my eyes were just so out of focus, I couldn't see what I was doing. The next night, I put on the glasses.... and I could see how terrible my stitching was from the night before! I guess I just have to accept it, that these are now a necessary tool in my everyday life! Blech!
