Party time

I'm huffing and puffing and flexing my fingers after entering tons & tons of giveaways in the latest
I didn't get to participate this time (for the reasons whined about in my last post,) but I've had fun discovering some new blogs!

The theme is Beat the Winter Blues and boy do I have 'em! Yesterday looked like this

 and today it's a winter wonderland again!

Ahh well, it's beautiful at least.

Anyway, here are some of the new blogs I came across in my travels:
Quiltscapes Quilting - she shared a tutorial for "Snippets" - little fabric wallets - I can see getting addicted.

Robin Quilts, etc - she had commenters post sewing tips which I liked and she has some cool tutorials

Seriously..I think it needs stitches. - she had a great giveaway and fantastic blog name, but I also noticed a very cool widget I'd like to try : Shelfari

sew.darn.quilt - another great giveaway and I love how she displays her followers across her header!

The Amateur Quilter - said for the winner of his giveaway to print out the giveaway post and take a picture of it with the project the winner makes - cool idea!

Windsor & Main - I really loved the blog's layout - so organized and inviting - plus an "inspiration" list I liked

There were so many cool giveaways and I really liked Moda's Snap Pop line - makes me feel so "Springy"
Happy Thursday!


  1. Just an FYI, The Amateur Quilter is a guy named Mike. Did you make it to mine? Fairly certain I started following you during a hop.

  2. So funny... I had the same thoughts about most of those blog posts... kind of neat LOL!

  3. I missed the blog hop this time around, too. But it's still fun to visit everyone else's blogs, read all the creative posts, and enter the giveaways, isn't it? Have a super day!

  4. Hi Francine, Congratulations, You are my second runner up in the Blog Hop! Since the scrappy purse is a kind of personal taste thing...If it does not appeal to you I can send you some fat quarters instead?! (state your style preference) Don't be shy, let me know and email me your snail mail to cspoonquilt@yahoo.com. cheers, Claire W.


Thanks so much for leaving a comment! Sure beats talkin' to myself! :-)
