Leanne is the winner of the table runner pattern by Pieces From My Heart. Keep an eye on her blog and maybe she will pass the pattern on when she is finished with it. It is a simple pattern and once you do it I think that you will remember how. I took a couple of notes and the rest is in my head. ( OM Gosh Leanne I may be calling you.) Just kidding!
Leanne if you will send me your address I will get this pattern off to you.Thanks to everyone who left a comment. I will have another pattern give away soon.
I received my PIF today from Hanne in Norway. I will post a picture of it tomorrow. My PIFs are already to go out in the mail on Monday. I will show pictures after they have been received. Have a great evening. I will chat later.

I also made some block protector rolls. I made some for Debbie(applique) D. no blog. I also made some for myself. I love them and they were so easy to make. When you have completed a block, you untie your ribbon and unroll the roll. Place your block inside roll it up, tie it and it is safe from the light and dirty little fingers. You can keep them in one place. Maybe you are more organized that I am. They sure help me!!
This block is a stitchery from Buttermilk Basin. I will show more of these blocks soon. I am off now to fix dinner. Have a great evening. I will chat soon.

And this is where I am now! But I WILL have both of these runners ready for next year. The pattern is a simple pattern and all I have left to do is sew them together. Deb and I both agreed that the pattern should be passed on. So if anyone would like the pattern leave a comment before Wednesday night and I will draw a name on Thursday and get the pattern off to you. I hope that everyone has a great day. I will chat later.

The Lady Bug was given to me last Christmas as a gift from my friend Debbie( applique) D. no blog. She does beautiful work!!! I love lady bugs. Here is a picture of it opened. She did the cross stitch and made the little pincushion inside. The cross stitch is a needle holder.
Because no one can have too many pincushions ...
I want to make this one In the Spring issue of Quilts and More. It is by designer Anna Maria Horner. I was unable to get her fabric locally, but I was able to get this fun fabric at my LQS. I hope everyone has a great day. Will chat soon.
