Not One, but Two Winners!

Thanks to everyone who suggested names for my new bicycle! There were actually two names that I really liked and couldn’t decide between the two, so I decided to give her a first and a middle name - TRIXIE JANE.

Karen will be receiving the Swatches Kit,

and Daphne (not blogging yet) will receive a really great quilt pattern,

Hip to Be Square by Busy Bee Designs.

Karen, please email me with your mailing address so I can get your prize right out to you - Daphne, I’ll bring your prize with us on Sunday!

I also want to thank everyone for the wonderful comments that have been left so far! I have been hesitant to do a blog; I don’t know if it’s a “shy” thing or what, but I’m so glad I did! This is a lot of fun! Special thanks to Pam,who left a comment on my last post - it means a lot to me to have heard from you!

Today I had great intentions of showing you some progress on my Christmas Cottage Block Exchange. When I got home from work yesterday at 4:30, there was a repairman in the house who had come to blow out our dryer vent. He didn’t leave until nearly 8:00!! I guess I shouldn’t complain - he did a very thorough job of cleaning out the vent, and also noticed that the flexible vent tubing that went from the back of the dryer to the vent itself was not up to code, so he replaced that as well. Since we will be selling our house next spring, we were glad that he caught something a home inspector would definitely have made us fix! One less thing we will have to worry about now! If you’ve never had your dryer vent blown free of lint, please think about doing it - your clothes will dry faster, your home will be less “linty”, you’ll save on energy, and you won’t risk a fire starting from clogged vents. We had it done about 4 years ago and the build-up between now and then was horrendous! So, obviously, I did not have time to work on the Christmas Cottage blocks last night - stay tuned for Monday's post, however, when I hope to have some great progress.

Have a wonderful Fall weekend!

Love the bike.. makes me want to get my pink one out, its a similar classic style. No gears though and the old fashioned kind of brakes.

Love the cottage blocks. Nice work!

I just found your blog and I have to say that I love your profile description. It makes me want to cheer you on and say "You go girl!" I've been dreaming about learning how to fly fish. And my husband is from Spokane. Keep on enjoying life!
