Blog giveaway for CQers

You really want to check out Pat Winters Blog, it is a crazy quilters dream.
And she is having a great giveaway. I am still trying to figure out how to post a link, so you will have to copy and paste, but it will be well worth your time.

I am so excited!!!! I am having a ball in Columbus with all the girls. Spent the first night at Becky`s with her, Donna, and Kathy. Becky is a sweet lady and we had a lot of fun. She took us to two bead stores, and a wonderful thread shop. I got some great threads for CQing, and embroidering. Then I met up with Joyce in our hotel for three more days of good times. We bought some Paintstiks a few weeks ago, and were so anxious to try them out. They really do work so nice, easy to do, but if you are trying them out for the first time, there is a great video that you can get that really explains so much. We played with darker fabrics and the effect was very cool.
I will post pics when I get home. I brought my camera, but don`t have the cord to plug into the computer.
AND now the most exciting part!!! I bought the Janome 6600P!!!! I have wanted this machine, well drooled over it, dreamed about it, and envied everyone that had one for so long, is more accurate then wanting it. I bought it at the quilt show, and am waiting for delivery to my hotel this morning. I can`t wait to play with my new baby.

Been a Month!

Geez, Loueez, I was on my friend Kathy`s blog, and realized it has been a month since I posted anything. So here is an update.
I am getting ready to head to the Columbus quilt show tomorrow. I am staying for a few nights with different friends. First with Becky, Donna, and Kathy, then on to a hotel for a few nights with my best friend Joyce. We have so much planned for that time, we could probably stay a month and not get them all done! rofl
I will post pics as soon as I get back.
