THURSDAY GREETINGS EVERYONE – Thanks to everybody for the wonderful Birthday wishes. Even though I spent my day at work, I felt like I was celebrating all day long when I was reading through the comments you left on my blog.

I wanted to take this moment to remind all my readers that the giveaway will officially end at midnight on Friday, July 17, 2009. Just to make it fair to everyone all comments posted after that time will not count. I am just amazed at the great response this has had. And a big WELCOME to all the new members. Make sure you take the opportunity to sign up as many times as you are able!

I know in the announcement I said the winners will be drawn on Friday. However, I’ve decided to draw the winners and post them to the blog on MONDAY, July 20, 2009. I need time to go through all the entries and give everyone the proper credit. Not to mention that I will be doing this drawing on the road. We leave for summer vacation on Friday morning at 8 AM SHARP!! We’ll be in Kitty Hawk, NC beaching it for a week and soaking up the sun.

The sewing machine and selected fabrics from my stash will be coming with me to keep me sane among all the mass confusion that is our normal family vacations. You didn’t think I’d leave the machine behind did you?!? I also found the address of a new fabric shop on the Outer Banks and pledge to visit it at least one day while I’m there!

Happy quilting,
