I wanted to talk all day about candy when all the comments started coming in! It seems the majority love Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I would agree with that. I love those too!

Now let’s get to why your here this morning…the drawing! picked #7

Gail Lewis

Lorrie, I couldn’t believe it when I saw you give- away, I was just looking at your Etsy site yesterday and dreaming over the gorgeous fabrics from Anthology. I try to keep my sweet tooth under control so I choose peanut M+M’s because they are so nutritious !!!

Congrats Gail!! Thanks for playing everyone. I enjoyed reading your candy comments!

I’m going to add a disclaimer here. If you don’t want to obsess over ice cream all day, don’t read any further!

If you need something besides candy on a hot summer day, look what I ran across at the grocery store this week.

Ben & Jerry’s Red Velvet Cake. This may just be my new favorite ice cream. Chunks of red velvet and swirls of cream cheese.

And Late Night Snack. Caramel ice cream with chocolate covered potato chip bits. Salty and sweet!

Terrible,  just terrible for a diet.Why was I even down that isle in the store!!

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend. I was finishing up the studio. I gotta tell ya…I love it! Just a few  more things before I show you the pics though.

We have lots more exciting things coming to the Etsy store and we want to share them with you! So today we’re giving away one of the delicious fat quarter sets from Anthology.

Sweet Tooth

So, leave us a comment…tell us what your favorite candy is that makes you have a sweet tooth and you’ll be entered to win!

Mine is  Good & Plenty:)

The giveaway runs from Wednesday, June 1st – Wednesday June 8th and is open to everyone, including our international friends. I’ll post the winner June 9th.

Can you believe…100 posts already! We’ve come a long way and we’d like to thank everyone for their support by having a giveaway.

We’re giving away the Bliss Table Runner. Paige did a great job machine quilting it.

And how about the spring/summer issue of Quilt Samplers Top 10 Shop Hop to go with it. My favorite magazine, which I wait ever so patiently for twice a year. You’ll love it too!

Good luck everyone!


These are wonderful! I LOVE your blog.



Congratulations Margaret!! picked your #!

It must be true about the lucky #7.

I finally have one of my sewing boxes listed on the Etsy store. I actually cut into..I know, say it isn’t so..the unfinished Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt I was working on to make this box.

I hand stitched everything from the flowers, the quilting, and the covering on the underside of the lid and I gotta tell ya that this is hard to part with. I think it turned out just awesome! It’s made from a vintage sewing machine treadle drawer and I’ve attached a lid that doubles as a pincushion. I use mine behind my machine for easy access to my pins, machine needles, and presser feet. It’s one of the things in my sewing room that is unique.

I’ve made several of these over the years. My mom has one out of an orphan block. My Grandma and my Mom-n-Law also have one. This is a pic of mine…

I also made the yellow one on the left. It turned out sooo cute! I machine appliqued the Grandmother’s Flower onto a cute yellow and purple flowered background and hand embroidered a lazy daisy flower in the center.

I’m choosing not to list this cutie on Etsy because it’s not as perfect as I like my things to be. Its flaw is that it doesn’t seem to close as tightly as the other one and I had to move the hardware on it once.  If it were mine, I would love it just the same but I kinda figured that if I’m expecting someone to pay for it, then they expect it to be at least close to perfect. I can’t list something I’m not completely happy with.

I just hate the thought of it not being used and loved by anyone. So I thought I would give it away to anyone who leaves a comment on this post today. I’ll pick the winner and post it tomorrow,  Saturday the 19th.

So if you’re interested please let me know. Remember it’s only for today, Friday the 18th.

Have a great weekend!
