Toddlerless Tuesday #21! Good Things on the Horizon!!

Hi, all!!

Don't you love that little face?  I miss her on Tuesdays, but I do get much more done when she's in school than when she's here with me - she really wants to help and that usually means being right in the middle of everything!!

There was lots of little sewing today at my house during the toddlerless hours - it's amazing that it takes just as long to make fifty little blocks as it does to make fifty big blocks!  But I finally finished the blocks for the commission quilt, and tomorrow I start arranging them in the final design......

Small and out of focus just in case....

I also want to show you two baby quilts that we delivered this week for the quilt ministry...  The pretty little pink one, made by my friend Sharia, is called "New Kid On The Block".  The blocks are stacked raw edge applique, and it's backed with warm, cuddly fleece.

The one to the right, made by my friend Connie, is a wonderful, soft, crinkly cotton that makes me think of sunshine and blue skies.  It's backed in a pretty blue, yellow and white floral print.

And now, some news about upcoming stuff!!

Pay attention, this is good!!

Anybody out there like giveaways?

Here's the skinny - first, it's all about "Can I Get A Whoop Whoop" Fridays.  I've got some really great loot for a giveaway - you won't want to miss this.  But you need to start planning now - because even though the giveaway won't be until Friday, February 25th, if you link up this week, you'll get an extra chance at winning!  Remember, you don't have to actually finish something, you can link up anything crafty you're proud of having done this week!  The guidelines can be found in the bar at the top of my blog, but it's really simple - if you wanted to do a happy dance this week, tell us about it!!

And here's another giveaway - this one will be this Sunday, February 20th!  I've got a great blog to share with you on Surfin' Sunday's feature, and the blogger is offering some fabulous goodies!!  So be sure to check in on Sunday to see what I've got for you!!
