Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

A bit later than expected but here we are. I'm finally cuddled up on my couch late on a Saturday night with my cup of tea. Its pouring buckets outside & I'm finally done reading all of the comments.

I have to tell you that I really, really enjoyed learning about your guys, a bit of your history and what you love. I feel like I know you a tiny bit better! On a more personal note, it was really comforting for me to read so many lovely comments during this particular moment in time. Your words have really encouraged me in an unexpected way, so thank you so much for that!

Our waylay over here has been due to a bit of the following: 4 1/2 Variety Show acts, 3 costume changes, 1 new strobe light as well as 3 soccer championship games in the rain, 4 snack trips for hungry teenage boys, 2 playdates and 1 "hang out" time [because God forbid we call that which 14 year olds do "a play date"] and a lot of chauffering of above participants!

But I know the real reason you are here is not to hear the recap of the social lives of my children but to see about the giveaway!

So for the Bundle:

"Both…I have paint chip colors taped on my walls, I am in the process of changing out one very large room to all fig tree colors and fabrics.  So needless to say I am kinda hoarding yards and yards of different lines to mix and match for cushions.  Of course it is already gonna be loaded with quilts.  Just gotta get the hubs to help me paint.  Misery loves company in that game..hahahaha.

    Congratulations winners! How fun it is to win fabric from Joanna!
    Actually Joanna, I like hearing about life with the kids! How quickly the years go by when they are growing up and you run, and cheer them on and run more. Then they leave for college,or wherever and then you have to follow them on Blogs! Enjoy the run!

    I just finished peicing a pinwheel quilt for my baby girl for her first birthday. I used your California Girl jelly roll, and I can’t stop looking at it. The colors are beautiful together. This is one of your best, along with Dandelion Girl. I guess I really go for your girl lines, ha! I just wanted you to know how much I love your fabric.
