Yep, can you believe it? I have done 500 posts (actually this is 502, LOL). I was talking with PTM last night trying to decide what to give away. What should it be? Something amazing, right? You all wouldn't mind something amazing now would you?? When guess what? PTM offered me something I just could not pass on. Now you might want to sit down to hear this one. Many of you do not know PTM as she does not have a blog. She is one of my bestest friends and she is meticulous about her work. METICULOUS, I tell you. Makes my work look like a third grader did it. Fortunately she is a wonderful teacher and I have learned a LOT from her. All this being said she offered to donate for my give away an entire set of the embroidered blocks (NOT the patterns) from the "Rabbits Prefer Embroidery" pattern. She has them all done and her hand work is stunning! Here is what the pattern looks like (photo from Bunny Hill's website)
I will share the next 2 blocks of this that I have done but hers are much better than mine! Here is block 4 and 5, done by me.
So if you want a chance to win these fabulous blocks (all 13 of them) then leave me a comment and tell me why you would like to win and what you will do with them if you do win. I will draw the winner on Monday.
On to news about Matt. I received a text from my son this am and he had received it from Chris, Matt's brother and here is what it said:
"Hey, just letting you know Matt is ok. He's got some scabs on his face and his arm is in a bandage cast deal and his vision is blurry but he's ok".
Now these words came from the brother and I will talk with his mom once they are back home, but this sounds like good news!
I thought I would share the 4 blocks I made last night for Matt's quilt. I put them both ways so you could see the fabric more closely.
Once again, let me say that I appreciate all of you that have volunteered to donate a block(s). I am looking forward to seeing them all!
Now don't forget to let me know if you are playing along in the Jelly roll quilt-a-long and leave a comment for a chance to win here too!!
