A Patchworl Angel and A Giveaway!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Ours was very quiet and uneventful. Dinner was wonderful - I think I get better at this every year! We'll be eating turkey, dressing and mashed potatoes a myriad of ways for days to come!

Today's mail came with a most unexpected surprise! Terri sent me this adorable patchwork angel! It's made from a vintage quilt. I love it, Terri! Thank you so much, it was so very thoughtful and I'm just blown away! She will take a special place in my sewing studio and she might even find her way to the top of our tree this year - a girl needs a change of scenery every so often!


Here is something else that came in the mail today. The Fat Quarter Shop is carrying Lynette Anderson's patterns! I really love her designs and can't wait to get started stiching this adorable pillow! I'm going to use stash for the pillow itself.

Earlier today I talked my husband into taking a ride with me to Country Village to visit Keepsake Cottage Fabrics . I was looking for some fabric for another stichery I'm doing (hey - a quilter can't have just ONE project at a time!). I came away with a Bunny Hill pattern for Bitty Bird Pincushion and this flying geese ruler. I've heard this ruler is a great way to make flying geese and I have an upcoming project that has lots of them!

Finally, I have a new giveaway - the 2009 Quilter's Block-A-Day Calendar! I have one on my desk at work and really enjoy seeing a different block each day. It folds out into an easel style and is perpetual, so you can use it from year to year! Leave me a comment and tell me about an angel in your life. I'll pick a lucky winner at random on Monday, December 1st!

i'm so thrilled you like the angel...i thought the vintage quilt part made it special and perfect for some of my dear sewing-blog-friends...=)...can this comment count as an entry in your giveaway as well? i'd be embarrassed if i won again, but i have three real life angels in my life - my grandbabies! =)

I love that pillow for you. Too cute.

Kanga-Roni-Bucket-'O-Cute is an angel in my life. She's just come down to earth to make me laugh all the time. I'll nominate cat #3 for an angel today since you didn't specify human/animal/spirit being! hee.

I love Lynette's patterns and Bunny Hill. They both make such great patterns.
My angel is my husband. He is so good to me.

Oh I would love to make a block a day my angel is my mom in heaven!

I just received those same rulers for my birthday from my sister. I too have a border coming up that requires quite a few geese. I also have a collection of pincushion which includes that cute little bird. Louise

Our family angel is our closest friend John. More precious than gold, sweeter than honey and an amazing man. As a bachelor, he opened his home to our family for Thanksgiving...3 kids & a dog. He drives 2 hours to babysit for us when asked to do so & he is just always there with hugs and smiles.
John is a God send!

I like that vintage quilt angel! I've seen heart ornaments made from old quilts, but never an angel.

My angel-a certain red-haired offspring whose nickname from me was Sunshine when she was a baby.

I love the angel too. What a fun prize to giveaway - the calendar would be fun.
