#34 Lots of Fun Things to Share.....

First I usually write a new post every  Sunday or Monday, but with the storms and high wind passing through our internet has been down for 2 days, and my iPhone decided to crash at the same time. Which compared to the devastation in the US and Philippines is a minor inconvenience! My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone touched by the latest storm systems!!

Internet is now up and the battery in my iPhone replaced, so lets get to some of the good stuff!!

I have joined the Kona Solids Blog Hop taking place January 7-17, 2014. I'm very excited about it and working hard to come up with a fantastic project to feature!! Maybe even a tutorial! For sure a give away, Mad About Patchwork is donating a prize, so make sure you stop by!! I thought it was going to be the first time I participated in a Blog Hop as a contributor...


But, I got an invitation to join another Blog Hop!!!
So December 2-6 is my first official Blog Hop as a participant! I'm over the top excited now! There is going to be a lot of fun and prizes for you too! So check back and join in! More information to come!!

What I've Been Up To:

Some Happy Mail!! I won a prize through Modern Blocks QAL


I won a Modern Patchwork magazine, posting a comment on The Charming Needle, fantastic! So many wonderful projects inside including Josee's Petals and Patchwork pot holders!!

I received my Art Gallery Fabric bundle that I won, on Instagram!! 

















I finished my nephew's quilt!! And added a label!! Don't forget the coupon code for labels if you are looking to buy some. Top right corner of blog page.





















  I have 3 of 13 (baker's dozen) placemats done for my mother-in-law for Christmas! Last post for these! The back is Fall/Thanksgiving, front is Christmas! They were done quilt as you go.

























  I made a casserole carrier. Though I think it would be better called a Pie Carrier! Too small to be for a casserole. (pictures just to show how it works! It would not close around that casserole dish!! lol) Love the fabric though!! (ps. red polk a dot fabric added, because the fabric in the kit was so out of square, I had to add it to make it the size it called for! If only I had understood that it was way too small I would have added more all the way around!! Oh well)

    1. Thanks Samantha!! It was crazy lucky!! lol. The casserole carrier is a great quick gift, but the pattern calls for an 18" square and I say it should be a minimum of 22" square to get around a casserole dish!!

  2. Wow! Congratulations on all the prizes! And all the finishes! The variation of blue zigzags is lovely, also where did you find the pattern for the casserole carrier? I think it could be a great gift for some of my in laws who enjoy doing potluck meals every weekend!

    1. Thanks! It was crazy to be winning so many things so close together, but fun!! Casserole carrier was a kit, with instructions included, but I think it came from online, so I will type it out and post it here. Just remember it is ment for smaller items like a pie plate or cake pan. If you want it for a casserole carrier make it larger!!

    1. That's awesome!! Lol!! I thought it sounded like a fun Idea!! I even have found a few prize sponsors for a give away!! I bought the kit specifically because of the material!! Love it!! Just make sure you make it larger if you want it to carry more than a pie plate. I put the instructions up! right sidebar!
