Okay, I'm rotten.

I know. I promised a two hundredth post complete with giveaway, and then I disappear for like a week.

I have so much to say. Should we start with some photos? Just a few faves I came across from the past hundred and ninety nine. I had to mosaic them because there were too many!

And has everyone heard of this giant bloggy giveaway carnival going on? I don't know how long they're going on, but go see, There's over a thousand!

And all my squares have been cut, counted, enveloped and posted off. I had so much fun digging through the stash and remembering every project I bought each fabric for. Every now and then while I was sorting them, a pretty colour combo would pop up like this.

Of course, it's sale time at the local quilt shop, so all that cutting made space for a few new things, hehe. I'm thinking spring skirt for that yellow.
And I've started getting squares back! Hooray! I just love getting mail, and getting fabric in the mail is like Christmas everyday! And I joined another swap hosted by Amy at commonplace.

It's almost Valentine's Day, too! I'm already seeing so many great projects around, I don't know if I'll have time to make everything I want! I have to make some of the sweet crochet hearts from Bella Dia again, this time in cotton to be used as washcloths. Little melt-n-pour heart soaps with them would make a nice little party favor for the annual valentine making party. Which I really should schedule....put it on the to-do list.

And then these sweet little heart pockets. And Amy's (at vintage fern) little heart wreaths.

Okay, how about the giveaway, you're thinking? I'm still up in the air for the contents, So I have to say it'll be a mix of fabric, beads, yarn, goodies, trinkets, doodads, and sparkly bits, customized a bit to who it is who wins. It'll be a big surprise. Leave a comment to enter yourself. I'll pick a winner Sunday night.

Okay, I'm off to do my favourite thing lately: Bake to keep the house warm!

(new eight cup pan! thrifted.)

Oh yummy, I made a 1/2 dozen blueberry muffins yesterday... There is only 1 left. JR & I need to start stepping up to this biggest loser competition!

I had everything out to make the Banana Dream Muffins and then decided that it wasn't a good idea the day before weighing and measuring... lmao!!

Casey said...

ooh lots of squares :) my place is too hot to bake today, your muffins look yummy

Amanda said...

Those muffins look delicious! With nice big blueberries, mmmmm. Enter me in your drawing please :D

Amy said...

Kay so I joined that other swap too! I think it's too much fun. I think I might wait for all the squares from both swaps and make one big quilt with them, even though they are different sizes. I like your new muffin tin, I don't think I've ever seen one with eight. Congrats on your 200th post!

Those muffins look very tempting-something fresh from the oven is my favorite way to ward off cold winter days.

I have a great wrap skirt pattern that sews up in about an hour that would be perfect for that yellow!
