Quilt panel giveaway winners from Carried Away Quilting


Hello everyone!  It's time to announce the winners of the beautiful Santa Claus and Snowman quilt panels from the kind folks at Quilt Girls! Thank you so much for your enthusiastic entries!  I took all of the comments, copied and pasted them into a spreadsheet, sorted and shuffled them around, and then had my husband holler out two numbers.  My highly scientific method yielded these two winners:

Dorothy M. is the winner of the Snowman panel.
Annette is the winner of the Santa Claus panel.

I will contact each of you via email so we can coordinate sending your ...

forwards and backwards . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

Because this post covers a lot of time, current and past!  
I finally finished up Ellie's bicycle embroidery, which was a good thing ... her (8th) birthday was Friday and we celebrated last night! It's a simple finish because I didn't want the fabric or the quilting to take away from the piece it was showcasing.  Mission accomplished!  *smirk*  Ellie had her first slumber party on Friday night, so we did family dinner at a Japanese restaurant called Edo's.  Her choice!
I love the complexity of this sweet girl.  For all that she loves girlie things (check ...

snowflakes and snowmen . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

Last week we had snow overnight . . . this week we had tornadoes.  Weather in North Alabama is always a bit crazy.  We were very lucky and didn't experience any storm damage, and we were able to ride out the warning in the storm shelter under the new cabin in the campground.  It's the first time we've needed to put it to the test since it was build this past spring.  And the first time in the ten years we've lived at the camp that we haven't had to leave the premises to find shelter!  Phew!

I ...

Christmas on the Wall 11, 12, 13, 14 from Virtual Quilter

More bells today, along with a few other seasonal items.

Only one week before Christmas, so I am guessing there are quite a few items being wrapped, though keep in mind that little fingers, and big ones too, can unwrap something much quicker than we can wrap them!

virtual cookie exchange, day two . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

That's MEEEEEE!
I love hops . . . it's such an easy-peasey way to visit other bloggers and gain new ideas on a central theme.  Fresh perspective, if you will!  I especially enjoy participating in blog hops that Carol, over at Just Let Me Quilt organizes.   She does such a great job!  Thanks, Carol!

Our family has always baked our way through the holidays.  We love the tried and true, but we also love to experiment and try new, fun things.  I'm always looking for ways to include the grandgirls so that they grow up appreciating the baking traditions and ...

beginnings and ends . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

I love finishes!  This morning I can share not one, but TWO! Well, perhaps I should clarify. Not two completely finished, ready-to-put-up-and-enjoy-and-never-need-to-be-worked-on-again projects. But two projects on which I've finished the embroidery stitches! I wrapped up my pumpkin piece (by Crabapple Hill Studios):
I just love this sweet stitchery.  I love the character and variety of stitches and colors.  It was truly like painting a scene.  It's so yummy!

And I finished my teapot table topper . . .
I think the last time I shared anything on it, I was still whipping the hexies together! I finished the hexies up ...

dreaming quilts . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

I've been having very vivid dreams over the last several weeks. I think partly because finally, after four or five years of shoulder pain and then surgery recovery, I'm finally able to sleep through the night, pain free!

Whatever the reason, these dreams are ones that I remember when I wake up in the morning ... even days later. Which is unusual for me!  I've dreamed up a lot of stitchery/quilty projects, too.  One of which I felt compelled to act upon!

Last Thursday, I dreamed I created a quilt designed to hold an applique ...

a stitch in time . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

I've really been caught up in hand embroidery of late.  Not sure what has me so enthralled, but I *like* it!  I thought I'd share a few finishes and progress.

I finished the stitching on this little secret project . . .
I'll fill you in later.  Hahaha!

I started and finished this acorn . . .
Stitched by me; pattern from Kathy Schmitz, One Stitch at a Time Embroidery Club
I love this cosmos variegated floss; it's so soft and pretty! I'm not sure exactly what I'm going to do with this stitchery, but I'll figure out something ...
