One loss, but many chances to win

I'm in a hotel room outside Cleveland. Good thing, too, because if I were at home, I would be so tempted to start a new project that I just found online -

Isn't it lovely? There is a tutorial here.

So, why am I in Cleveland, you ask? My husband's basketball team is playing in a tournament at Case Western Reserve University this weekend. We lost last night's game quite badly, but still, I found reason to smile. Jason dressed up so he could help out the trainer with water bottles for the players and sit on the bench. Doesn't he look tiny next to these guys?

Anyway, losing depresses me, so I came online to see if there were any giveaways I could try to win. Here's what I have found:

a $25 gift certificate for FABRIC here

five patterns here

2 fat quarters here

A beautiful shadow trapunto mini quilt here

The pattern for this beautiful quilt which includes embroidery (which those who follow me know is my latest craze!) here

Oh, and I am supposed to share a quote about my beautiful life. I chose a quote by John Burroughs: 'I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see." Of course, I would amend it to add "all the quilts I want to make"!

Coordinating fabrics OR a Christmas table topper here

a 2010 Artbra calendar here

Hand dyed fabric here

And a conglomeration of stuff - fabric, books, patterns, etc. here

OK, that's enough, right. No need to be greedy. Now, to catch up up what you all have been doing.
