Giveaway Winner & Mother's/Grandmother's

Thirty six wonderful comments...36.  All through the week I have enjoyed reading the comments as they have rolled in with descriptions of how you all discovered quilting.  Although the inspiration seems to come from many different sources, the common denominator was mother's and grandmother's and because I'm a total sucker for mother/grandmother connections I had to go with Allegory's comment:

For me, it was all my mother's fault. She would quilt while I was sewing clothes when I was in my teens. Fast forward 7 years and I'm bored sewing clothes so I call mom and ask her what it was she used to work on next to me.
I got a rotary cutter and some handwritten starter notes in the mail that week. ;)


Congratulations to Allegory for winning the $50.00 Fat Quarter Shop Gift Certificate.  Please visit Allegory at her blog {sew}Allegorical to see her quilting/crafting projects and to read about her hunt for Count Chocula cereal.  Too funny.

To continue on with the mother/grandmother theme, sometimes I have tea in the morning with my grandmother:
My grandmother's china cup with a Mr. Hunky Fireman mug rug that my mother would have LOVED.  
Two more tidbits before I attack my crazy busy day: 

Fabric picked out for the Christmas Tree Pants sew along hosted by Sew Mama Sew/Happy Zombie
Holiday Happy fabric by Happy Zombie

Everything else is on the back burner while I work on this project:

Happy Saturday!

  4. Congratulations to Allegory! I loved reading about how everyone was introduced to quilting. It warms my heart to see that you are enjoying your hunky fireman, along with a spot of tea in fancy china.
