Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Proverbs 31:30

Give-away winners

Cheery good morning to y'all! I love it when I get fun little gifties in the mail. Don't you? Well three lovely ladies are going to receive some fun in the mail. Shauna, Jo and A Quilters Mission are my give-away winners. One will receive a Schnibbles pattern and some fat quarters, the others will receive Charm packs. Congratulations ladies!

I have been cleaning my sewing room and there is much I need to let go of. How do you feel about receiving some lovely things that another just can not keep? I am thinking of another give-away if there is interest. I have some books, magazines, fabric and notions that I would love to gift to someone else.

Tata for now,

Give away ends on the 21st

It has been a wonderful time to meet new friends on the Grow Your Blog tour. I am closing the extended time for the give-away on the 21st at 9p.m. Pacific time. I will be picking three winners so if you have not entered you still have a bit of time.

I have been busy hand quilting three quilts for the girls in my life. I am getting close to having them all completed. Pics will follow when they are all stitched up. I love to hand quilt and when in the mood to free motion quilt. I wonder how many out there are dual quilters? Or would you rather just send it out to be quilted by someone else?

Those needles and thread are calling me...

Grow Your Blog 2014

                                                 Welcome to Grow Your Blog 2014!

2 Bags Full
 My name is Susan and I am so glad you have stopped by. I love to quilt. I maid my first quilt out of flannel when I was thirteen. It was for my soon to be born baby sister. Oddly, she was born on my fourteenth birthday, an unusual birthday to be sure. I enjoy sharing what I am doing with fabric, my garden, and things I find in blog land. I also share charity work that my quilty friends and I have participated in.

I have been married for forty years to my sweet heart of a hubby. We have three children and five grandchildren and one pup who is really our fourth child. She is an Australian Shepherd named Maddie.

I enjoy making/designing my own patterns. It is rare for me to make a quilt just as the pattern says. That is true for clothes and crafty things as well.

Well I hope you have enjoyed your few moments here. I have a little give-away. Just leave me a little note sharing when you started quilting, or sewing. I will have a drawing on the 31st. Since I can't get my pictures to load it will be a surprise. Will it be a book, or fabric or both? I hope you will join me by following along but the give-away is open to all.

A big Thank You! to Vicki at 2 Bags Full for putting this on.

Until next time,
