Blog Hopping along

 
Thanks for visiting.  Are you enjoying the party thus far?

When you check out some of my other posts, you will see that I have a variety of quilting styles that interest me. Right now I'm playing with fabric postcards, getting them ready to send off to some special people. I've been meaning to try my hand at these and what better time than during the holiday season.  They still need a bit more work.
I have to get these out of here soon or I will miss the international deadline. One of them is off to my friend Helen McNaught in AUS. We swapped mug rugs way back through Michelle's Quilting Gallery and it's about time I got in touch with her again. The other is for Evelina in Italy who I also met through the Quilting Gallery. But there are several cards in the picture. Yes that's true, but I don't want to say who they are for, just in case the recipients pop in. I want it to be a surprise!

Oh yes before I forget, here is a giveaway.  A pattern that includes a printed panel and 6 FQs.  Just leave a comment on each day's post from now till December 17.  I'll randomly select from those of you that leave a comment. 

Once again thanks for stopping by and don't forget to make sure that you leave a way for me to contact you in case you are the winner.

Cute cards. How do you come up with these ideas? Just adore quilting. My first try was for our community quilt. You can pick my square out - it was the worst! I have, however, improved since then, thank the gods!
Glad to see someone from my neck of the woods. I live in Agassiz. halfway between Chilliwack and Hope. I enjoy your blog.
