As Promised . . A Couple of Wieners . . Winners . . .

How's your weekend going? After being out of town the last two weekends, being home this weekend feels great. I just love my regular routine and regular food and regular life. No doubt about it, I'm a homebody.

I have two Carrie Nelson for Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. patterns to giveaway, first up Wild Air . . .

Thanks for sharing what made you giggle, several stories made me giggle too, especially the "marshmallows on the loose" line. The Wild Air winner is Marian, who said,

"I flew all the way to Calgary (I live in Toronto) to take a class on Cracked Pots with Carrie, and I loved every minute of it. I'm still working on the top - there are a zillion pieces!

In the past I would have shied away from a pattern with so many flying geese, but thanks to someone showing how she used the Fit to be Geese ruler on her blog, I purchased one and am now the queen of geese! That is one reason why I read blogs - to learn things from other people without having to try everything myself.

Something that made me smile in the past 10 days was finally watching the movie "The Blind Side" and remembering that there are still a lot of people with good hearts."

Marian, I love Cracked Pots, I sure hope you finish it so you can start on Wild Air!!

When it comes to classes, we are all pretty much in agreement, a going at your own pace class is what suits us. To you folks that have never taken a class or haven't taken a class in years, I hope you get the opportunity to do so, soon. Several folks mentioned something that hadn't occurred to me but I totally agreed with, having a prepared instructor! I may waste time talking and fussing, but that's my choice, I have no patience for someone else wasting my time.

The background fabric I'm using for my Long Tall Sally is Miniatures By Julie Hendricksen for Windham Fabrics, Pattern No 31528, sorry I didn't mention it in my earlier post.

The winner of the second Carrie Nelson for Miss Rosie's Quilt Co pattern, Long Tall Sally, is LynCC of What a Hoot, Quilts from the Heart who said,

"really enjoyed the class I took a few months ago with Judy Niemeyer. It was a hybrid lecture/go at your pace. She did a lecture up front showing the initial technique ideas to get us started, then for the next 4 hours she traveled the room, helping those who had trouble with the paper piecing, and visiting with those who were fine. Then she did another lecture for those who were ready for the next stage, and the next 4 hours were spent with her meandering the room again, doing the same - chatting with the speedy rabbits, and re-showing the next stage to the turtles who got to that point later. It was a lot of fun."

I had two Long Tall Sallies leave comments, I'm sorry you didn't win, but if there was ever a quilt pattern calling your name it 's this one, I hope you make it!

Enjoy what's left of your weekend, I'll be back on Monday with a tour of the Corn Wagon Quilt Company and another pattern giveaway.


  1. oh, cool! Thanks so very much, Thelma :D

  3. Congratulations to the winners! And "hi" to the other Long Tall Sallie! I think you're right, Thelma. This pattern is definitely calling my name. Thanks for giving us chances to win!
