It's that time again - are you ready to get (and give) your whoop whoops? I hope you're planning to link up this week - because I've got a really good reason for you to do it! Next week, February 25th, there'll be a giveaway (whoop whoop!!!) and if you link up this week, you'll get an extra entry next week! Spread the word this week about the giveaway next Friday, and you'll get another entry! Plus you'll get one when you link up next week - so three chances at some really great loot! I don't have any pictures of the giveaway items to show you, but I will give you a little hint - remember the scene in the forest in the Wizard of Oz? Imagine if Dorothy, the Tin Man, and the Scarecrow were saying, "Yardage and fat quarters and charms, oh my!"
(((I did have one person ask this week if putting the button on their blog was what I meant by linking up - so if you're new to linky parties, here's the skinny - to link up, you write a blog post or post a picture to flickr of your week's accomplishment. If it's a blog post, click on the title of the post, then copy the url address in the internet browser. If it's a flickr pic, click on the pic, then copy the url address from the internet browser. Come over to the linky party, and at the end of my blog post, it will say something like "You're Next" - click on that, and enter your information in the blanks. It will also ask you to choose a picture to put on the linky party, and you can choose one from your blog post or your flickr pic. If any of this doesn't work, e-mail me and I'll try to help you. And remember, the linky party is open from Friday at 12:01 a.m CST until Saturday at 12:00 p.m. CST - so you have two full days to link up!)))
Most of this week, I've been working on the commission quilt - - and as of Thursday evening, it's close to being a finished flimsy....
|Once again, blurry - but I promise|
nice clear pictures next week!!
But I also made two pillows for my husband for Valentine's Day, so the week wasn't a total wash!
This one is called Jazz Nights in the City - named for the outer border fabric, which features lots of instruments and the word "jazz" on it. The patch pieces in the center are architectural prints, so it just seemed to go well with the jazz fabric! My husband's dearest desire is to go to a jazz club in NYC!
And this pillow is called Rock and Roll at the Orange Bowl - growing up in Miami, my hubby was a huge Dolphins fan (their colors are teal and orange!) back when they played in the Orange Bowl - and he once participated in a rock and roll half-time show there!
So those are my accomplishments for the week - - - can I get a whoop whoop??
And now it's your turn - show us what you did this week!!
And don't forget - spread the word about next Friday's giveaway and plan to link up next week, too!
And one more thing - come back here on Sunday to see who's being featured on Surfin' Sunday - it's a great blog, and guess what? The blogger is offering some goodies to give away!! You won't want to miss this one!!
