One World One Heart

Where did the year go? I didn't realize that the One World One Heart giveaway had started until I saw it on a blog yesterday. Since I don't have time to make anything, I decided to giveaway a fat quarter of my hand-dyed fabric. If you click on the One World - One Heart logo above, you will be taken to a list of all of this years participants. So go have some fun and spend some time looking at other creative blogs.

How do you enter my drawing you ask. Well first this is open to bloggers everywhere. Just leave a comment to this post by midnight February 14 and I will use a random number generator to pick a winner on February 15th. Please make sure there is a link back to your blog so I have a way to contact you or leave your e-mail addy with your comment.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Kara was getting after me the other day about not having anything new on my blog. I told her I didn't have anything new quilt related but I guess I could post a picture of Riley. Riley is the Shih Tsu puppy we are going to be getting. If everything works out we will be getting him this coming weekend. I really hope everything works out! Riley is supposed to be my birthday present but I think that was just the excuse so Gary could get him and Alex keeps saying that Riley is going to be his puppy! We'll see how long the puppy newness lasts when he has to keep getting up in the middle of the night to let Riley pee!!! We'll see how long it is until I'm the one getting up in the middle of the night and how long it is until I'm the one cleaning up the accidents!! We'll see whose puppy it ends up being in the long run!! Gary will just sleep through all the crying puppy nights like he did when the kids were little!

I haven't been really inspired to do much of anything lately. I have gotten my sewing room organized now that Kara is back at Houghton. I did put together a sewing package for her. She asked for some fabric squares, thread, embroidery floss and other things so she could try her hand at hand sewing when she was sitting around with her friends.

After seeing all the posts on Quilt Art about snow dyeing and seeing different posts on blogs, I've wanted to give it a try. Now that I have time, it's too warm and the snow is melting with all the rain. Just have to wait a couple days and it should get colder. Can't go too long in NH without cold winter weather!!
