Discounts Galore and Honey's Choice...

Mr. Squash just called to tell me how proud he is of himself! He was doing some online shopping and has heard if you Google “promotional code” and the store you’re shopping in, you can find all sorts of good deals like 25% off, free shipping, etc. Turns out my Christmas gifts may even benefit from this! Way to go, Mr. Squash!

I also want to remind you all of a couple of giveaways! Nanette over at Freda’s Hive is on Day 6 of her 7 days of give-aways. She has a lot of great gifts, so please go over and leave a comment! Also Eileen over at My Quilting Porch is giving away a pattern for a terrific holiday tree quilt that she and Kim made! Eileen really wants a lot of people to enter, so please check it out and leave her a comment!

When I turned over my perpetual quilting calendar to today’s date, I found this block. It looks great next to some of my vintage Shawnee pieces that I keep at my desk!


I think a quilt using this block in Christmas fabrics would be terrific! And since the block is called Honey’s Choice, perhaps I should have Mr. Squash choose the fabrics for it!

We’re expecting snow here in the Pacific Northwest, so for all of you still sweating in hot climates, I may have a “cool” post for you tomorrow or Sunday!

Always pretty at the Squash House. I love that block.

And way to go Mr. Squash. Way to keep the effort in the gift.

Thoughtful effort and Joy Love, *karendianne.

Thanks for the tip, Mr. Squash! I do a lot of online shopping and this will definitely come in handy.

Mr. Squash is a savvy shopper. I would like to see what fabrics Mr. Squash picks out for the block. I still have the hardest time doing that.
