First Tomatoes and Giveaway Day Winner

Two Romas and one Early Girl have decided to be the first tomatoes to ripen in my garden. These are both from my older small plot but I must add that all of the vegetables in my new plot are doing great - everything is showing wonderful growth. More on that in another blogpost. 

My Giveaway Day winner is Strandkorbtraum!

The why is easy: I'm not receiving any radio in some parts of the building I work in and I'm not always home or ready to listen when the program is on ... 
What: well as a way to not forget all my English I usually go for the BBC, Radio Ireland and the Australian National Broadcast, they have some interesting, history and music podcasts. Australia had for a long time audio book podcast though they sadly decided to have almost only copyrighted books read that you can only get the podcasts inside Australia ... I do love the Scottish sports podcast, and I various gardening podcasts ... That's about it. Thanks for the chance! 
Podcast update: I'm just about to take the hammer to my CPU and microphone (actually multiple microphones) as they've somehow just decided to stop working correctly to allow me to record my voice.  I've been ready for a good four days now with tons of material and a new quilting history topic and plenty of time to record...and the hardware is now the problem.  Ugh. 

Hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday,

My newest trial was "melted snowman cookies". They are so cute! Huge hit with the kids!

Congratulations to Anonymous for winning the Hungarian Blue Quilt Kit and the Kate Spain Flurry Charm Pack.  I've just sent out an email and will get that into the mail as soon as I hear back from you.  
Quick update on Christmas presents:

Zip bag for B - back

Working on a drawstring bag from a tutorial from In Color Order:  Lined Drawstring Bag Tutorial.  It's super cute and the tutorial is fairly easy to follow except when you realize.....

That your fabric is upside down.  Bummer.  Guess I have a new bag!  Next one will have the fabric right side up and will be for my niece K.  
Off to feed the family with a new coffee cake cooling on the kitchen counter.  Younger son already commented on how good it smelled.  Love that.  
Enjoy your Sunday,

History Quilter Podcast - The Giveaway Episode

Good Morning everyone,

A favorite listener suggested that I record a podcast with a live announcement of the winner of the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day contest that I participated in this year.  I never expected the amount of traffic or comments that I would receive from this giveaway : 2,300 visits to my website resulted in 498 comments.  I barely had time to enter any of the giveaways of my own - I think I only went to the bloggers that I "knew" (people I follow who also follow me) that were on the list to enter.  Although I did not win anything tangible, I did win over 400 funny, interesting and informative comments from people all around the world.

So here is the winner based on...nothing really.  Her comment taught me something new as I love to learn and I kept thinking about her comment all week.  Thank you to Lesly from Ontario, Canada for entering my giveaway and congratulations to you!

Mt random comment - I just found a YouTube channel that has so many BBC period dramas on it that I will never run out of things to watch while I sew binding on. I'm so excited - as my local video store seems to have lost one DVD from every series ever made.

Have a great Monday everyone!
