The Party Games are On!

We're keeping it simple here so everyone can join in on the fun and not feel embarrassed if they can't run a relay without getting hurt, or pin the tail on the donkey. Just a little bit of fun to liven up the PARTY!

I'm sure you know that you can't have a Party with out a few Party Games. . . Right? So here are two simple, yet fun games for you to play. I hope you're all having fun!

Game One: Answer Five Questions
These questions are just to see how observant you all are. I will post the answers to the questions tomorrow when I post the winner of game two.

1. What's my favorite color?

2. What makes me happy?

3. What kind of sewing machine do I own?

4. What other craft do I like to do? Name one.

5. What kind of quilting do I enjoy doing?
a) traditional
b) contemporary
c) paper piecing
d) applique
e) all of the above


Game Two: How many chocolate eggs are in my candy jar?


The person with the closest number will win today's giveaway. If there is a tie I will have to use the Random Number Generator. You have until tomorrow afternoon to decide on a number and make your entry. I get home from work about 3pm so I will be checking your comments and will announce the winner of day two at approximately 4pm or sooner. Keep checking back ;)

Another Surprise!! Here is today's Prize!

I made all three of these items especially for my Party! Hope you like them! Below you will see my "itty bitty ditty bag" that works as a toss in your bag sewing kit and can also be used as a small make-up bag or to carry your cell phone, ipods, blackberries, or jewelry. You decide how you want to use it. I also made a matching tissue holder for your purse and a custom made needle case.



Hope you like it!

Today my favorite color is "red".

I am happy when I am quilting or shopping for Quilt related items....

I sew on a Janome 6600, a Brother 1500 and a Singer FW. Love them all...

I like to do crafty type things....

I like it all and do it all.....not really into the art part so I guess I am more "traditional".
