Giveaway Announced

Before I announce the winner for the 'In Your Words Blog Hop', I wanted to share an email I recently received and some pictures. I love getting pictures of finished Quilt Doodle projects because I think it's so much fun to see them done in various fabrics....

"Dear Cindy:
I made place mats for Christmas instead of the mug mat.  Thank you for your creative patterns.  I have also attached two pictures of where we buy the fabrics - a narrow alleyway with tiny tables and cloth hung everywhere.  It is called "The Beach".  The fabric comes in 6 yard pieces.  They do not cut what you need, you buy the whole piece.  It is heavy cotton cloth, which has been "waxed" to give it a high shine.  I don't think anywhere else in the world uses this fabric except here in Africa, specifically the Congo.  My husband and I are here on a 2 year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  In the evenings, I have time for a little sewing.  This project has been fun to do.
Thanks again, and Happy New Year!
Sister JoAnn Billings"

Happy quilting,


  1. Cindy - Your blog is loaded in for my Grow Your Blog party. You will need to prepare a special post for the party - please reference the guidelines. I will be by to meet you soon after the party starts. I hope you make many new friends - and that you will help to support new bloggers who are just begging this journey~


  2. Hi!!! Congrats to the winner!!!

  3. I'm visiting from the Grow Your Blog Hop at 2BagsFull. I'm your newest follower. My name is Patrice and I have the blog . I hope that you will drop by and visit my blog. Following would be great too. :) I am not a quilter- yet. I've been a major quilting wannabe for a few years. I have sewn since birth- I think! I used to chef in a historic estate where the lady of the house was an avid quilter. She gave me piles of magazines and trash bags full of fabric. So I must open those bags again and get started. I believe it would be less intimidating if I took a class or something. I look forward to more visits to your blog. :)

  4. Awesome pictures and story about Africa! I'd love to have some of that fabric! LOL! Hugs!
