Our 9 year old says he wants to be a preacher......

This is our son Cody. He is preparing to give a message at our church. Cody says he wants to be a preacher when he grows up.  Isn't that so sweet.  This was back in April of 2010.  Our little preacher boy. He had just turned 9 years old here. 

Here is Cody giving his message.

Giveaway Update with Pictures!!

Lee's name was drawn for the giveaway of getting her fabric cut with the GO!

Here is her fabric choice that she sent to me for me to cut for her.

She chose the Tumbler Block.

Got a large stack of Tumblers to mail to her.  I can't wait for her to get them. 

I did ask her permission before posting these pictures. :0)

Thank you Lee.

I want to have a Giveaway!! See inside!

Ok, for anyone that has read my blog within the last month you know that I won an Accuquilt GO!  So, since I cannot give away a GO! I can do the next best thing......I can giveaway some cutting from the GO! So, I will have the winner mail me their fabric (within a reasonable size-LOL!) and I will cut it out for them and mail it back.  Sounds easy...right? Very accurate and a quick turn of events. I'll get it and be able to cut it out and send it right back. 

Just food for thought.....I don't have any pets and nor do I smoke....so you shouldn't have any worries about your fabric with those concerns.  :0)

So, If you are interested then leave me a comment for 1 entry, follow me for the 2nd entry and for the 3rd entry tell me if you want the 6 1/2" Tumbler Die for your cuts or the Apple Core for your cuts.  I will announce the winner of the free cuts on Nov. 17th. This way maybe you can get the fabric to me by the weekend and I can put it back in the mail on the following Monday so you will get it before Thanksgiving. :0) 

I just thought this would be something nice to do for someone that hasn't gotten the GO! yet.  Hope you all like the idea. I actually read this on another blog and thought that it was really neat for someone to do so......thanks for the idea.  :0)

So, get commenting......   :0)

10 Minute Block, 3-D Pinwheel and Tube Block!

I am still waiting on my dies before I can tell you what I am planning on doing about my little giveaway.  So.....keep checking back/watching.  :-)      I will tell  you as soon as I can.  :-)

We had a ballgame last night. Our oldest son did really really well! I was so proud of him!  He stole the ball away from the other team at least 6 or 7 times! I had a sore throat by the time I left there! WHOOO HOOO!  Very exciting games. 

I have been working on some new quilt blocks to see how they turn out.  I have done the 10 minute block and the 3-D Pinwheel. I really like both of these but would have to say that I just love the pinwheel one!  I am hoping to do the Tube block over the weekend if I can squeeze in time.  It is so neat! 

If you are interested in any of these I will post the places so you can see how to make them too.

I hope that if you look at these you will tell me what you think. I really like all 3 of them. I can't wait to get to try out the Tube block.  I will be posting some pictures of my blocks. If you make them let me know so I can check out your blocks too.  Very simple, easy blocks......lets do some quilting!!       :^)

Picture update on quilt for Cory!

Cory's quilt with the blocks together. Not near finished. I have more red/white/blue fabric
to put around it. Just had to share!

I am wanting to get this quilt done as quick as I can because it has just taken me so long to do. Not that it was difficult in anyway but just because of the lack of time.  It needs to be pressed but I just had to share it.  :0)  I hope that he likes it when it is done.  :0)
