Goodies Online and Goodies at Home!

Lots to talk about today! Don't forget May Giveaway Day at Sew, Mama, Sew! is this weekend (May 21st).
And Amy at Amy's Creative Side is running her Bloggers' Quilt Festival starting this Friday, the 18th.

Amy's Creative Side

I also wanted to give a shout out to the bloggy friends I have recently won goodies from. I want to make sure you understand that I do this only to call attention to other people's great blogs and let you know just how great they are.
  • A book and scraps from Allegory at Sew Allegorical... (this came yesterday)
She's so sweet! She asked if there were any scraps I needed. I started to say no but I remembered that I've been struggling with finding reds and some blues for my Bottled Rainbows quilt. So here's what she sent me.
I love the blue pickup truck! and the red fabric with the chairs. There was also a larger piece with bugs that I've got to find something cute to do with. Thanks so much Al! Oh, and when I looked at her return address I figured out that she only lives about 45 minutes from me! How cool is that?

Then, just as I was starting to get teased goodnaturedly by my bloggy friends for being on a winning hot streak (you're so funny Julie!), I saw on my email yesterday that I won a copy of 100 Blocks Volume 5 from Mary at Quiltin' Grandma! I'm so pumped!

I'm very appreciative to all my bloggy friends for having giveaways. When I first started staying home and quilting, hubby made the comment that I might have to sell things or do something part time to pay for my hobby. So I started entering giveaways...lots of giveaways. So any and all wins help me keep crafting and staying home so, again, I thank you!
