I love contests with giveaways
and this one gives away a beautiful quilt! Look at the beautiful colors in that quilt . The rules are that you leave a post at this blog and link it and post a thingy on your sidebar. You can also make a video and post on you tube but that it too much for me! I found out about this at Karen's blog .
I hope I win! The odds are high but I feel a win coming on for something. Maybe it's the Bose Radio that my singing group is auctioning off - we didn't sell alot of tickets so since the odds are low I bought a ton for my nieces and nephews (and ME).
Regarding the quilt again. I just love pink - not bubblegum pink but rose, and dusty rose and all other delicate, subtle shades of pink. Why? Well my mom was a redhead and she tended to dress me as if I was a redhead (when she did dress me a million years ago). So I wore alot of tan and "classic" colors. And oh boy - I hated it. When it came time to choose my first dress - totally on my own - it was for my Bat Mitzvah and I chose a pink chiffon with pink sequins. Someday...if you're all good, I'll post a picture of that magnificent dress - which of course, had matching shoes. I really don't wear alot of pink, but I still love it. I love to sew with it and make girly quilts.
The lip is looking alot better - surprisingly fast! It the stitches were out it would just look like I had a fat lip. DH is worried that my mom will think he punched me, since I'm not telling her about this latest issue. But the rest of the family wouldn't worry about that, they'd know that if DH tried a punch, he'd be flattened by his tough Brooklyn girlfriend. He'd definitely look worse!!!!
By the way - I love pug dogs and thru Mariannes site found this site - another pug lover. Of course I immediatly went to her Etsy site and bought a few things..for Christmas presents of course, NOT for myself.
Time to get ready for my first spinning class in a year. 55 minutes of torture. Wish me luck
