PRETTY PETALS BOOK WINNER

I wanted to show you the back of the book because it shows the Kaleidoscope quilt. I told my editor that my goal doing this book was to be able to spell kaleidoscope before I was finished. He sent me an email one day that said, "Maybe this will help.....if I eat kale-i-do-need scope." since then I don't have a problem spelling kaleidoscope. Thanks Kent!
My favorite page in the book is the illustration page of the 12 Pretty Petal blocks shown in Kaleidoscope form. The idea is if you don't want to make an entire queen size quilt, you can take one block and have a smaller quilt, aprox. 52" x 52"
AND THE WINNER OF MY BOOK IS:
Mary on Lake Pulaski
I wanted to post a picture of my husband holding the winning name, but he isn't fond of being on a blog! Thanks everyone for your kind comments! (Mary, send me your address ASAP!)

PRETTY PETALS BOOK GIVE-A-WAY

My box of books came and I am giving one away!
There are 3 quilt projects, an appliqued throw pillow, pillow cases and a market bag project.
Also you will find Euro sized appliqued pillows that match the big Pretty Petals quilt.
All of you that leave a comment on my blog will be in the drawing. If you don't want to dilute the pot, don't tell all your blog friends. I think those of you who follow my blog should have the best advantage! Thanks for all your support and sweet comments over the years.

MOTORCYCLES AND SPRING

I personally don't like to ride motorcycles, but I love to have my windows open and hear them go by. We have a nice long road just a block away, and when the motorcycles ride by....you can hear them for a long time. It just sounds like spring/summer to me!

YARN PROGRESS

Here is the yarn "pool" the place with all the little circles to add.
For those of you who keep asking how my crocheting is going...here is my progress. Great fun to do while watching TV. I think this is about one-third finished, so a few more rows yet to go!
