My 100th post!!
I felt a bit like this today. Every idea I had seemed to slip right out the back of my head. In one end, out the, um, well, not the other. It took a detour, a bit like Merideth and Tiny Dan here.
Does this not just make you smile? Now that is determination.
I finally did some house cleaning which seemed to sweep a few of the mental cobwebs away. Then an hour doing aerobics (with a little boxing thrown in for good measure) on the Wii. Nothing like exercise to really get the ideas flowing.
I learned something new this weekend. A quilting tip, of which I need all that I can get. This tip came from The Quilt Show. Some very clever person in the UK came up with a way to make a one-seam flying geese block. Oh, it is so, so easy and a treat to make.
Here's a little peek:
Cute, huh? I cannot show all of this to you because it is going to be mailed to someone special in England. But, I can tell you it is a table topper. Not really a runner, but just something sweet to place on the table and set a potted plant upon. Or a cat. Only if you let your cat sleep on your table, do not tell me.
Oh, did I mention something about a giveaway for my 100th post? Well, here it is!! The lucky winner will receive the following:
A Japanese craft book with patterns for some lovely things like place mats, book covers, and tote bags. A table topper in the one-seam flying geese pattern in the colors of your choice, and a few little extra tidbits, which will be a surprise for the winner.
All you have to do to enter is answer the following question:
"How do you clear the mental cobwebs away?"
I will await your answers with great anticipation.
Flora will draw the winning name on Monday, January 19. I think winning a giveaway would be a good way to start a week. Don't you?
