I love Vintage Mondays because I love seeing all the things you love and the things you collect. I also love Sew Night with Kassidy. It's fun to see the things that she likes to make.

I've posted your button on my sidebar a few weeks ago and I won't be able to blog about it because we leave for California in a few hours and I should be in bed instead of blogging. Ha! Ha!

I'm kinda mad at my husband for making me miss your trunk show tonight. But, it's important we go see his mom too. I'm just glad I'll be back for the 7th.

Nanette promised to tell me all about it too! I know you'll do great and they will all LOVE You!!

Julie said...

I love the pattern section of your blog because I really enjoy looking at your quilts and seeing all of the details you have included in each one. I am presently taking your paper doll class at Material Girls and find the pictures you have posted very helpful.

Karen said...

Holy Cow!!! I can't believe that I'm the first comment...My fav post of late would be the one with all of the pictures of your yard. I have a degree in Landscape Design and I thought that your yard was just beautiful! In fact, I'm thinking about a gray/white combo for my fence. There's tons of inspiration in your landscape...Great Job!!!

Sweet P said...

What a wonderful giveaway. I've posted your button and wrote about your giveaway on my blog: http://coffeetimestitches.blogspot.com/2009/06/giveaway.html

My favorite blog entries are you Vintage Mondays. They remind me of my grandmother's house and make me wish my family had saved more of the items she had.

Country Log Cabin Quilter said...

What a neat giveaway! I love flour sack dish towels, so please add me to the drawing. I loved your 6/22/09 post about your vintage pins that you display on the old fashioned shoe pin cushions.

Bev C said...

Hello Lori, Just found your blog will mention it on mine. I loved the tour of your garden. It is lovely and fresh with lots of colour.I will be back for a better look through your blog. Love the header ric-rac and vintage patterns,Yum. Happy days.

Fiesta said...

Lori I am in!
I searched yesterday on the internet for patterns on how to make these lovely towels.
You are already on my side bar.

Bev C said...

Back again Lori, Have added both pictures to my blog. Hope this helps spread the word about your giveaway.

Ky said...

I love...and adore :-) your dish towels, they were so cute. I would love to be entered in this drawing! I also mentioned this giveaway on my group blog. Thanks so much.

Nedra said...

IHi Lori,
I like "Setting The Table" and I've added your button on my sidebar. I can't blog about you because I have my own Give Away going on. Count me for 2.
Have a great time tonight at That Alpine Group. Wish I could join you guys. I asked Nanette to take lots of pictures.

Carrie P. said...

Well, I had to go back and pick my favorite post which was hard because I just love them all. I love the times that you share the Clothesline Club. Always fun. Vintage Monday are so fun to see what you come up next. So I picked a Vintage Monday. It was the one where you showed all the old books about plants and gardening. They are so great.
I just love this giveaway. I will be back after I put the picture on my post for today.

Carrie P. said...

Hey Lori,
Just wanted to let you know that I just added the giveaway to my post for today.

Rosa-Munda said...

Hi Lori, What a beautiful giveaway! I enjoy reading your blog - its really original. I have added your button to my sidebar.

sheddy said...

I love your Clotheline Club posts because I wish we had a quilt shop near me that had a club like that. At least I can live vicariously through yours. Love your work!

Beth said...

Oooooh, what a great giveaway! Pick me, pick me! LOL What a generous giveaway! Ok, I did all 3, here's a link to my blog.

Michele said...

Great giveaway!

I'd choose the Animated Dishware patterns-- I love things with faces. Thought the smiling cherries yesterday were so cute.

free indeed said...

I liked the Spring Garden post because I have many of the same flowers growing here in northern Maine...some I would love to have, but think our area is too cold for them to over winter. I loved the sentiment of the first roses that you put on your grandfather's grave on his birthday. THat was touching. PS I like the music you have in the background too...just my speed! :)

Vanasa said...

I am just starting the comforts of home quilt and am embracing my hidden vintage-ness. I enjoy seeing what the class is doing for better pictures of the blocks even though I am behind.

Ruth B said...

My fav is your tutorial on kitchen towels. I love it! Now the hunt is on for some towels that I can make pretty like yours. I love this giveaway because I learned to embroider stitching dishtowels with my mom. Our dishtowels were always embroidered and stitching them is a great memory!

Paula said...

Hi! I'm new to your blog - popped over through Coffee Time In Stitches' post about your giveaway and completely enjoyed my visit! My favorite post of those I read so far is your garden tour. It's that time of year, and I love to see what others do with their outdoor spaces. Yours is gorgeous! Please enter me into your tea towel drawing. Thanks much!

onlymehere said...

I loved your "Sew Night with Kass" bz this is such a wonderful mother/daughter thing to do. I love sewing with my daughter too. The other who doesn't sew I love doing jewelry with. I also liked your post on the embroidered dish towels bz it took me back in time to doing my own and some that were given to me. You're right too, nothing dries as well as a flour sack towel!! Cindy

Sheri said...

I love your website! And what a great give away. I will really enjoy exporing. I just love how all this vintage stuff in back in style. I embroidered on pillow cases and dishtowels when is was a girl and it really brings back memories. Thanks!

Nancy said...

the most recent favorite post was last Thursday, "Sewing with Kass". It's so important that we teach our youth to sew and do handwork. I am teaching the two kids across the street to do redwork. They are 8 and 10, a boy and a girl. They love it...
What a great giveaway... I love to have handwork on the couch ready to pick up for a few stitches..

Jenny said...

Love these transfers and would love to win the dishtowels

Piecefulafternoon said...

I'm new to your blog and love everything - especially the Vintage Mondays - but another favorite was Applique potluck - oh so many choices.

I especially love hand embroidered dish towels and love making them.

Thanks for the fun blog.

gdyup said...

I love your Vintage Mondays! Love seeing the pins, hankies gloves!!! Thanks for sharing!

Anne said...

Loving all things vintage, I love Vintage Monday posts. But my very favorite postS are the ones with your original work. I don't applique and only wish I had the patience to do it!

Anne said...

I added your button to my side bar. You've been on my blogroll forever.

SewCalGal said...

All your posts are great, but I must admit I think give-aways are sew much fun, that this is your best posting ever. This is an excellent give-away. I also love redwork, so this posting is even more special.

Whom ever wins is certainly going to enjoy these lovely prizes.

Hello Lori - I'm here in hopes of winning this delightful offering! I love this one - right up my alley. I'll be back to visit on a more regular basis and soon I will share a story on my blog about one of your patterns - maybe you'll remember me! Intrigued? :-)

I'm off to post about this on my blog and to cross my fingers!

Mary said...

I commented and now have Posted the picture to my Blog, I don't know how to get your pic on my sidebar, sorry two chances is all I can do today. I'm going to Quilt with my buddy all day. Making quilts for my Grand- children is my fun!

Darlene said...

I've posted on my blog! Like Mary I don't know how to do the pic on my sidebar so I'll be happy with two entries. Thank you!

Lisa said...

I just found your blog and immediately added it to my favorites!! My favorite post would have to be the Vintage Monday embroidered dishtowels, they are adorable.

Amy R said...

I've just learned about your blog from someone else's ("This That and The Other") Your blog is wonderful. The group you are a part of does some wonderful work. And your garden. . . well, I could only dream to have one so beautiful. I love seeing your applique projects in process. . .I'm new to applique using needle turn and I've been trying to find ways that are comfortable and give nice results. Thanks for your blog. It is inspirational!

Poulsen Family said...

I love those towels, they remind me of the ones my Mom had growing up. I love vintage mondays...I'm in love with all things vintage.

Barbara said...

Lori,
I love the Vintage Mondays......so funny that as you were posting the dishtowels yesterday, I was laundering a stack of lovely towels that my mother and grandmother had made......many, many years ago. We have been clearing out my mothers house and there are so many treasures and memories.
Hugs, Barb

See Spot Run said...

I love the post about the quilt class you had in April. If California wasn't so far from Utah I would have signed up in a heartbeat.

Forsythe said...

I have been admiring your comforts of home quilt over at Material Girls in South Jordan. I just found your blog this morning and I am looking forward to going through each and every post. Thanks for sharing your many talents and I love your yard!
www.forsythechelsea.com

Lisa said...

I just wanted to let you know I posted your button on my side bar and I posted the picture of your giveaway and blogged about it. :)

mom2three said...

My favorite post is the one with the vintage shoe pincushions with "bling". I'm totally a bling girl, and there is a little wall space above my jewelry armoire... so this weekend I'll be making some vintage looking shoes and attaching a bunch of grandma's bling. That will remind me of her every day, and I know looking at them will make me smile! Thanks so much for the lovely ideas and great blog!

Anya said...

I love to see the sewing projects with Kass. Thanks for the chance and for having a great blog!

Dawn said...

Hi Lori, I have enjoyed your reunion process because I love family history!! I really enjoy vintage mondays because it reminds me so much of my childhood!!

The Retired Mama said...

I love vintage Monday. I especially loved the Monday where you showed your collection of crochet hot pads. That is how I found you, and I am so glad I did. I only wish I could sew as well as you.

Andrea M. said...

I would have to say Vintage Mondays are my fave. You and I collect some of the same things-but I have to say-vintage kitchen linens are the tops! So, this giveaway seems extra special sweet to me! Thanks for the chance to win. P.S.-Your paper doll quilt blocks were AMAZING!
methvin3@bellsouth.net

Sherri said...

What a fun giveaway! I especially love the first set of patterns with the table settings...since I love dishes so much!

Sherri said...

Oops...forgot to tell you my favorite post...it has to be the one where you shared your Ode to the 1930's quilt...it's so spectacular!

Gayle said...

Lori - I think my favorite post is the one where you taught your daughter to sew and made the twirly skirt. I love that you're passing down the skills to the next generation - sewing girls seem to be dwindling! What a great giveaway!

pigbook1 said...

I am in the process of adding the pic to a new post to direct people here for the contest. I was directed by another great blog :-)
I don't have a favorite blog post yet, but I think your vintage mondays are awesome!
Also flour sack towels are the best, best, best dish towel ever.

Jenna Z said...

I love aprons so I loved the post about your Apron Club pattern and all your apron stories!

Elizabeth said...

I just discovered your blog from a link on This That and the Other. I am so happy to be here because I love vintage things. My favorite page in your blog is the Vintage Monday Embroidered Dishtowels. I remember, as a 10-year old, embroidering these at my aunt's house during the long summer vacations. My aunt was so kind to me when I made a mistake, she would undo it and hand the dishtowel back to me and said, "try again." I still embroider today and I am 69 years old. I've added your blog to my Google Reader and will check it out daily. Thanks so much!

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

Ok, I edited my post today to include the pic of the dishcloths with the bow and include your giveaway when I talked about you coming to Alpine. Check!

What a sweet giveaway. I told you dishtowels are in my future next week. I want to make some up at my sister's ranch. This is just such fun stuff. Be still my heart. Everything you make is so wonderful.

My favorite post of yours? hmmm Let me think a bit. I loved your Easter pics of when you were a kid. I loved the dresden plates that you found - pure jealousy- and I love the vintage pot holders. It is hard to pic a favorite. So please don't make me.

Ohh this is a fun post too!

Rabbit Stitchings said...

Your show and tell post are great! Love seeing all the pictures of things...

of course these give away post are pretty cool too, :O) tee hee

NaDell said...

Those towels are SO super cute! I love to cross-stitch and would love to do something with those nice supplies. Pick me!

Linda said...

Well I have no idea how I missed out on having you in my reader, but that problem is now fixed. Your garden tour has to be at the top of my favorite list at the moment. The colours in your garden are just beautiful. It looks so relaxing and inviting.
Terrific giveaway.

Linda said...

I've added your button to my side bar.

Linda said...

I've just done a quick post about your giveaway.

Andee said...

I just found you due to someone's post about your giveaway so so far this is my favorite post since it helped me to find your blog. I will check out past posts and add you to my reader!

Kat said...

I love anything to do with the quilts you are making. The Comforts of Home pictures are gorgeous. Can't wait to see the Paperdolls one finished :)

Not Lucy said...

This is my first stop at your blog but will come back again. I like this post best right now because I was just thinking I need some new dish towels since all my old ones are pretty much dying!!! So here is my comment, I added the button and I posted the picture. Now I am off to check out more of your blog!

w&v said...

V. here... I saw your Kitchen Stitchin give away on Freda's hive. My favorite post is about Kass sewing the charm squares and the strip pillow and tissue holders. My grandaughter came from Nigeria and it inspired me to help her sew a bag. She really was into it!! I don't have a blog. Thanks so much!v

miniaturequilter said...

I do like seeing all those stitcheries! I like the post with the garden tour, the pics are beautiful! I would love to win one of your giveaways!!

Darlene said...

Wait, wait, I forgot to tell you what my favorite post is - any post of you sewing with your DD (reminds of my DD and I so many years ago - lol)

~D Spack~ said...

I'm sure glad Nanette sent "me" here! I'm so hooked on embroidery, I've loved perusing yours! Sew Night with Kass. That Curly Girl is darling and so is her skirt! This is a wonderful giveaway! I sure enjoyed looking at your 'stuff' on the Wasatch Shop Hop this month. Thanks Lori.

kwiltmakr said...

I didn't get to look too much but there are two posts I enjoyed. The one about your friend Linda I really liked because that is a sign of true friendship and very sweet of you to feature her work. The other was the one with the old Crazy quilt, I just love Crazy quilts. I also put your button on my side bar. I found your site through Simply this and that.

Maria said...

I went WAY back in your blog, and I love your last post. I love dishtowels. I use my embroidery machine. If I hand embroidered them, I'd probably never use them. I could do one set just to touch!

Kelly O. said...

I have never been here before (jodi sent me) and I'm so glad she did.
I stayed awhile and snooped around because your music is so fabulous!
I knew I'd like your blog the minute I heard Doris Day sing "please don't eat the daisies"!!!
I love Doris Day and Rock Hudson (swoon)!!!

My favourite posts have to be your tutorials--I particularly like the binding the dishcloth one.

Brenda said...

Wow! This is my first visit to your blog. I love it. Although I do not have enough time to check everything out right now I have added myself as a follower. I love the Vintage Monday posts. I would have a lot more vintage in my own home if my husband liked it more. I will try and add your button to my blog if I can get instructions on the how to. I have not been able to figure it out yet. Love, love, love the Scottie iron ons. I received a real live Scottie (have always wanted one) for Christmas this past year from husband and grown daughters. She is sorta my blog site mascot. Thanks for a chance to win your blog giveaway!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

My favorite blog was the one on vintage pot holders. I had no idea there were so many cute pot holders. You have a fabulous collection. I like this blog because it gave me a new appreciation of pot holders.

Barbara said...

I would love to be a part of those people who have a chance to get such a lovely gift, but I don't have a blog to put you on, why don't you do a contest that doesn't require us to have a blog.

bubbachenille said...

Ok well it's a bit hard to chose my fave post.. I loved the tour of your gorgeous garden and I loved your curly girl post and the lovely skirt with the pom poms !. Thanks for enetering me in your giveaway.

Cynthia said...

I love every single one of your posts. To pick a favorite is hard, but I especially liked "ode to 1930's quilt". I loved the sampler you made. I still have to make a 30's quilt, have been collecting fat quarters, and that pattern and the prints and colors you used inspired me to make that quilt myself. I also liked that you made it with friends. That makes quilting so much more fun. I have your button on my blog. Your giveaway sure is wonderful!

Cindy said...

I just came across your blog today and the first thing that caught my eye was your lovely blog background and banner! They are very cute. I've added you to my google reader now and will spend some time browsing your blog.

I'll post about your give away on mine.

Cindy

Linda K said...

Wow! Your Garden post is my favorite so far, but I have just found your blog and will keep reading and looking at your wonderful pix. I just LOVE the puppy tea towels! Hope I win!!

DeeRoo said...

Jen O said...

I love your garden post - I have garden envy for sure! Also I enjoyed the post with you and your daughter. My little girl is just 3 months old, but I plan to teach her to sew someday and have girls' sewing nights.

Desiree said...

Okay right off the bat my favorite post is the Sew Night with Kass, the twirly girly skirt. My Mom started teaching me to sew when I was about 10 so this brought back nice memories!!

I love, love, love the animated dishware pattern! I'd love to win because they would go SO well in my kitchen which is done in retro things with black, white and cherries.

Thanks!

quiltmom said...

LORI,
What a great giveaway- My mom used to make tea towels and I remember some of the days of the week patterns. It seems to me that she had ones with bears or bees. I know that she had the sun bonnet sue ones.
It is awhile since I embroidered but I think that I remember how.
Thanks for adding my name to your giveaway list.
Regards from a Western Canadian Quilter,
Anna

I'm so glad I stumbled upon your blog. I love the Scotty Dogs embroidery transfers on this post. So cute

aztel2000 said...

If I have to choose I guess I would say I love seeing the applique blocks for the quilts you are currently working on--it makes me wish I lived closer to where you are so I could attend your classes. I've made the Apron quilt and I'm working on Grandma's Kitchen. I'm also making a mini Apron Quilt for our guild president (at her request). Vintage Monday's are a lot of fun too!

Nancy Mc said...

Your garden was stunningly gorgeous. I enjoy your Vintage Monday posts--I love old linens and needlework. My favorite dishtowel pattern would be "Setting the Table". Thank you for sharing.

What a fabulous prize! I love to do dishtowels. I did 9 of them for Christmas last year for my quilt minigroup gifts. I LOVE your pictures of your yard. I studied them for a long time the other day. Just beautiful.

Sherry said...

Hi Lori. What a wonderful giveaway. Sorry but I can't pick just one favorite post, always enjoy all of them. I especially enjoy when you give us a peek of a current project & your vintage Mondays.

Needled Mom said...

I love the dishtowels. My husband's aunt gave me a dozen when we were married 40 years ago and I loved using them.

Favorite posts would have to be sewing the pink children's skirt as I sew with my grandchildren a lot.

Patty said...

I just now found your blog through Freda’s Hive so currently I do not have a favorite post. However, I did read about your “little apron water bottle covers” and absolutely love them. These would be good for a bar-b-que using small print food fabrics or even a birthday party using cup cake fabric. I just love these little aprons!

Heide said...

Not to sound like a broken record, but the Vintage Monday posts are da bomb. These dish towels always make me think of my grandmothers. I'm going to add a like to your contest over at my blog, www.heideho.wordpress.com Cheers!

Muddling Through said...

What a great blog you have! I just found you from Nanette's.

Love 2 Quilt said...

This reminds me of my grandmother. She probably did all 4 sets along with lots of others! I like the first set, Setting the Table.

kwiltmakr said...

Hello again. I just posted your photo for your give away on my blog.

Love 2 Quilt said...

I have blogged about your give away, but being new at this, I can't figure out how to put the picture of the dish towels there.

Great giveaway! I loved your garden tour!

Marcy said...

I would love to win the table setting pkg. I had to laugh when I seen that picture of the little girl at the table with the hair dryer attached to head. I have the same picture of me when I was little...I had forgotten all about those contraptions. I also love your family reunion quilt you have been working on. Thanks for the inspirations.

Sue H said...

What a lovely give-away. Count me in!

linda shewchuk said...

LOVE the giveaway - love your blog but this giveaway has to be the best as it reminded me right away of my MOM (I lost her a few years ago :( ) I would be honored to have another constant reminder of my mom around, especially in my kitchen. (I am positive I have old material from her that is exactly like this..going to look!!)

Kathy(kjanesmothers@hotmail.com) said...

Since I don't have a blog I can only do one of the three things listed which is leave a comment. I love all your patterns and can't wait to get my project list whittled down so I can start one. Thanks for doing the giveaway!

BJ said...

Hard to choose a favorite - I really thought the hot pads back in March were cute though.

I too do NOT have a blog - but would love to enter anyway!

Linda J. said...

I just found your blog, after finding some of your patterns in one of my favorite local stores. How COOL! I sure have been missing out.

I must admit I got a huge kick out of the picture of you (?) under the dryer in the "Bookshelf" section. I thought I was the only youngster who's mother sat her under the "tent dryer" so the curlers could do their magic.....

I also don't have a blog (will soon) but will enjoy reading yours, now that I've found it.

QuiltChick said...

I love the Ode to the 1930's quilt....because it is gorgeous and I love 1930's prints! Great blog!

Michelle said...

I love the Ode to the 1930's quilt post, especially all the up close pictures of the blocks, but my favorite still our the Vintage Monday blogs, I just love seeing all the treasures.

I dont have a blog yet but when I do, you will be on it for sure.

Blessings

Sue said...

I'm so happy I found your delightful blog! Even if I don't win your fun-packed giveaway, I figure I'm still a winner!

greetingarts said...

Wow, so glad I found your blog, it's amazing! I still have to browse all your archives, but I have to say I think Sew Nights with Kass is my favorite category. I'd like to sew like that with my daughter one day and these give me inspiration and ideas on how to make a sewing night successful.

Sandy Shirley said...

I enjoyed the post showing your Paper Dolls Block Complete because I love what you did and how you showed everything so clearly.

2ne said...

Sewing night with Kass is the one I like very much. Nice when kids sew. I love the pinchucion too, I've just got some pins with harts just like yours :-) Hope to be the lucky ones.

Christy said...

I love the yard ones .. ALL of them. Flowers are my favorite. Fun blog you have here. It would be great to win, that's some cute giveaway stuff :)

Pink-N-Sparkly said...

Wow! This brought back serious memories for me!! My favorite post was the Vintage Monday post on the Embroidered Dish Towels. I used to do these with my grandma when I was a little girl. She also had paints that we used to paint these same designs. Everything 'crafty' about me, I learned from my grandma - quilting, painting and embroidering dishtowels, crocheting, sewing...you name it! When my grandma passed away, I saw the family fighting over items that they deemed to be 'valuable'. It saddened me because it wasn't that they wanted them for memories, but for their monetary worth. Needless to say, I didn't have any competition, when all I asked for were her old dish towels! Thank you for keeping this alive for new generations!

Pink-N-Sparkly said...

I have posted a blog about your contest on my blog - www.pink-n-sparkly.blogspot.com! Thank you!

Pink-N-Sparkly said...

I have added your button to my sidebar - www.pink-n-sparkly.blogspot.com! Thank you!

Kim said...

Happy Sewing

Your embroidered dishtowels are adorable. I remember some of the patterns from when I was a child and made them for relatives for Christmas.

barb's creations said...

Every stitch of your embroidery is the very best posts. PURE ENVY.

Barbara in TN said...

LOVE dishtowels & altho I stitch a lot of them, they are usually for gifts & have very few of my own. How perfect this would be! Thanks for having a giveaway - my favorite design would have to be the Scotty Dogs. And it's a toss up on my favorite part of your blog - your tutorials OR the music. Love the vintage sounds.....
Thanks -

I think my favourite posts are Sew Night with Kass. I am teaching my 12 year old daughter to sew and I love seeing kids learning to sew.
(Love your patterns too!)
Thanks for the chance to win.

Jennifer said...

On what a wonderful site. I'm glad I found your blog. And what a wonderful contest.
I love the Monday Bling post... why My grandmother (we called mamaw) taugh me to sew, crochet and to appreciate the fine craft of needlework. She passed away several years ago and I miss her dearly. The Shoe pincushions remine me of her. She collected little glass shoes. I have most of her collection and look at them everyday. The pincushions would have gone well with her collection.

I'll be posting your button and contest prize on my blog later this morning. And Thankyou for having such a wonderful blog and reminding me of my precious Mamaw.

Sheri said...

I love your Blog! My favorite Post is the one with the Embroidered Dishtowels. Makes me feel young again to see them. I think I've stitched some of the same patterns. I posted on my blog about your great give away. www.thefabriccat.blogspot.com

Lesauri said...

I absolutely love flour sack tea towels, luncheon clothes everything. I was reading your blog and the memories that came flooding back as they are all that my mom used when I was a child. I think I even recognized some of the vegetables lol. Thanks for Vintage Monday- Embroidered Dishtowels and for the wonderful giveaway.

Queen Of The Armchair aka Dzintra Stitcheries said...

Hi this is my first time to your blog...of the ones I have read I really enjoyed Vintage Monday...and love the pink skirt below...Dzintra♥x

Lynn said...

I like the post that goes with the woman's work quilt detailing your cleaning chores when growing up. I also love the picture of you and your sisters from the post that goes with the garden quilt. Just one look at those dresses makes me remember how itchy those dresses were. I really love the music - reminds me of the music my mother listened to in our kitchen. I put the button on my blog and will post about it today!

Gnomemade said...

I love your Monday, May 18th post with all your patterns. They are so clever and creative! If I'm ever actually good enough of an applique-er, I definitely want to make your Quilter's Life one for my sewing room!

Queen Of The Armchair aka Dzintra Stitcheries said...

Hi I'm back...have put both pics on my sidebar...thanks again for this giveaway...Have a lovely Friday♥x

Miss Kaizer said...

My favorite post is the Ode to the 1930's Quilt post. I like it because it shows a wide variety of techniques and fabrics with extensive photography of the fine details that separate amateur from professional quality work. It is a piece that provides ample inspiration, as well!

I have created a post on my site for the giveaway and have added your blog to my blogroll. I will definitely be returning often!

annemarie said...

I love your blog but especially love the vintage monday posts. That is probably because I am pretty vintage!! a.haun@sbcglobal.net

call me crazy said...

Oh my goodness! I just found your blog thru Tozz and can't possibly name a favorite post because I like them all! I'll have to come back and read some more. ;) My first love is quilting, but I love doing embroidery too and have been thinking about doing some towels~ could that be fate? I'm adding you to my favorites and will be back soon! :)

Mariel said...

I am new to your blog but I love the vintage Mondays. I have just recently started doing embroidery on the dish towels and have to admit I'm getting addicted!

Grace said...

Joan said...

Omigosh! I just found you via a link from Tozz, and I absolutely love your quilt photos. Also, your background music is WONDERFUL--so close to my heart, you might say. I have a special fondness for anything from the 30's, 40's and 50's, patterns, movies, music, etc.

My favorite pasttime is quilting, but I also adore vintage hand embroidery. My mom taught me crewel years ago...

I own a set of Kewpie days of the week and would love to win your giveaway. Problem will be deciding between the Scotty Dogs and the Animated Kitchenware. Both are TOO CUTE!!

Thanks for such a super giveaway!! I'm saving your blog in my favorites along with Tozz's!!
=)

Amanda said...

I love the sunbonnet sue pattern. It reminds me alot of the pillowcases my great grandma made for my wedding two and a half years ago. They would be perfect to work on with her for my little girl, and would turn into a five generation thing. Awesome giveaway thanks.

Amanda said...

I added your button to my new crafty blog www.joyfulbirdie.blogspot.com
