Today’s post is not about any of my quilt works but instead a little fun! First off I would like to mention a couple of really awesome giveaways! I tell you these are wonderful!
First head on over to Camille’s blog Simplify
to enter to win a wonderful set of her first fabric line (designed by her and her mum for MODA -lucky girl!) You need to leave a comment by Monday!
The next cool giveaway is over on Lynette Anderson’s
blog and you can leave a comment to win a set of her newest redwork patterns, called “A Trio Of Greetings” -beautiful work! It also ends Monday but in Aussie time so hurry on over!
Thanks to both of you for your generous giveaways! We blogger’s are lucky quilters!
The next bit of fun is a 5 Things Meme that one of my newest blog gal pals, Dawn
at Sew-ritzy-titzy tagged me with. So to honor her tag….
5 Things Meme~~~~
Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.
1. What I was doing 10 years ago:
Hmmm, I believe I had been an RN for a year and could not find a job at home (Canada) so I accepted a Registered Nurse position in England to work at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading for a year. I believe I was on my way that month (absolutely amazing experience BTW!).
2. What 5 things are on on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):
Hem the curtains, wash the floors, work on DJ blocks, finish the last of the binding on Organized Chaos and ‘quiltify’ it, swim with the kids.
3. Snacks I enjoy:
CHOCOLATE! of course and also cheddar Cheerios mix, scones or other pastries, veggies with dip and so on…. LOL!
4. Things I would do if I was a billionaire:
This one is a hard one… but I probably would start some sort of children’s charity/foundation and open a quilt shop, set our parents up for life, travel and ….well I could go on and on! Fun! If only…
5. Places I have lived:
WOW! I have moved a lot! My dad was a banker and therefore we moved every few years as a child then I moved on my own. Then when I married my husband (who is a Marine pilot) we moved more! But I will try to remember all!… Ontario, Canada (Clinton, Elmira, Dunnville, Simcoe, Brantford, Belle River, Windsor, Barrie and back to Windsor), Reading England, North Carolina (Greenville, then Havelock), Virginia, Mississippi and now Maryland.
So there you have it…a little about me! Thanks to Dawn for tagging me….I am definitely going to tag Stefanie (the Quilt Buddy) and Stina (Kvitstina) if they would like to play ( participation is strictly optionl especially if this is not your thing or you have been recently tagged!), otherwise I am not sure who else to tag so anyone who would like to play consider yourself tagged by me and let me know when you post! Also please stop by and check out Dawn, Stefanie, Mar and Stina’s blogs-I tell ya these are some very talented and creative ladies!
Well, I am off to complete my ‘to do ‘ list for the day and get some quilting done! So until next time…
Have a little fun!
