I know I was to post the winner on Monday. But I got delayed!!! First, I thought I would read all of the comments. That was a lot of fun. All of your are lovely! Barb and I are very lucky to belong to this stitching community. We couldn't find nicer people anywhere! I didn't think to use the huswif for my jewelry. I'm always trying to figure out where to put my earrings when I travel. Thank you for the idea!
To top it off I get distracted. Stacks of magazines can be bad. Major time can be spent on deciding what to do with them. Should I give them to Goodwill or keep them? Do you have that problem too? Hopefully I'm not the only one. The pictures are so nice....and what if I get rid of just the one that has the idea I might need? Finally, I had to quit looking at them and just boxed them up for Goodwill. I just couldn't deal with it anymore.
Next I ran into some of my journals while dusting. I used to keep one every year. I wrote about projects, family, nature and recipes. So I had to sit down again and read about what I did years ago. I found some pressed flowers, a picture of the Kansas City Quilt Guild's raffle quilt I helped design years ago. It was fun to see it again after all of these years. I wonder who purchased it?
Found a picture of Barb and I at our first quilt market in Houston, TX. We looked so young! The picture was taken in 1999. Do we look nervous? We sure were at first!!! We didn't know how our book would do. We did win a prize for the booth..."Best New Exhibitor." That helped ease our fears!
This clipping from a magazine gave me the idea of how to label the container gardens in our quilt book, Quilting the Garden. The food shot was saved because those cut-out stars in the soup were just too cute. (I might have to take a look at that picture again!)
I saved some copies of drawings we worked on for our fabric line Sweet Romance for Moda fabrics.
Saved in the journal was a color copy of the sampler I stitched in memory of my grandmother. I make color copies of each sampler when completed. I then use the images in my journals to record when they were completed ....but I digress. I've got to get back on task.....We need to find out the winner of the contest!
The winner is:quilt cookie said...
