but I do believe I messed it up with the quilting.
Anita, I hope you received your package today! I know Barbara did - thanks for the nice email, Barbara. How did the quilt come out in the wash?
Have a great weekend, everyone. May you bless and be blessed!

http://myblog-nannysplace.blogspot.com/ sent me these four lovely fat quarters, also!!! Wow, what a wonderful surprise! She's quite done with summer and wishes to help fall along by spreading autumnish fabrics around, and I get to be a lucky recipient! Check out her blog, it's fun and she's a grandmother, so there's LOTS going on at Nanny's Place! Thanks again, Debby. We'll be having ourselves a pot of Jamaican Me Crazy Mayberry Coffee tomorrow morning with your breakfast.
First I used the random number generator and it picked 9 (forgot to copy it to show you), so Anita, you won, and then I told my hubs to pick a number between 1 and 16 and he picked 2, so Barbara Woods, you will win something, too. I know you recently said you are "bored" with pink, so we'll "chat."
I'll send you both an email.
Now for the basket of goodies above, the eggs are from my sister and BIL's hens. The four on the very top are all different shades of green. Very pretty and very good! Some of those eggs will be double-yokers, also.
And how about those white eggplants? This is the first year of trying those. They don't get big at all, in fact, you have to pick them quickly or they turn yellow. Hardly any seeds, and they're milder than purple eggplant.
Thanks to all of you who entered my giveaway. I hope you have a marvelous weekend!

I usually pick more than one winner and let them choose what they'd like, but that gets complicated, so one winner this time. Hopefully those who enter really like everything I'm offering and don't just enter because of ONE thing they want, but there's nothing I can do about that. So good luck everyone. I will pick a winner a week from today, so August 17th. Please leave your email address so I can contact you.

a different kind of design, hanging in window,
and the completed quilt top. No big surprise, but all my seams do NOT match up. But it's just for my own couch (finally, a quilt I'm going to keep!) Now to find some backing fabric and quilt it up.
I'm looking for a tutorial on how to square up the top. I've never really worried about that before, but I have to learn. I have an appointment to rent a longarm machine, and I'm told the top has to be square before it is loaded on the machine.
Time for bed!

Oh, and giveaway will be posted on Friday so come back and tarry with me then.

Here's the link to Angela's (most of you have probably already seen this from almost two years ago - I fell in love with it at the time): http://cuttopieces.blogspot.com/2010/09/mug-ruggood-enough-to-drink.html
Isn't it darling? (aww, the link is not working, but if you cut and paste, that should work - and it's worth the look, trust me!)
Here's something similar that I started working on over a year ago: It still needs a lot of work also:
Till next time, take care! ~ Jodi ~
(Oh, and I didn't forget that I promised a giveaway. I'm still ruminating about what to GIVE!)
