Won't He Be Stunned?

Won't he be stunned because here I am already posting (you should read last post if your confused). He also enjoyed your comments to the last post. My husband is a keeper and has always been wonderful about surprising me with flowers "just cause." But I have to tell you that I've always said if I can't have flowers to enjoy while I'm alive than don't bring them to me when I'm dead as I wouldn't get to enjoy them.

Here is my Roundabout. In order to complete this Schnibble on time I would sew in little bits of spare time here and there. The quilting isn't done just yet....in time! (need more of that)

This is one of the newest Schnibble patterns called, "OSO." I started this pattern weeks ago and posted just a peek of the blocks. I finished it just shortly after that posting but neglected to get a photo. I'm sure you'll see this one again once quilted.

How about a give away? Truth be told I've read these two books and don't need to save them. Included in the drawing are three FQ's from my stash. They are older but still worthy.
Leave me a comment with your birthday date. I'll ask my son to select a date. The birthday closest to the date he selects is the winner. Fair enough? Feel free to spread word however not expected! Winner announced a week from today!

Stitched With Prayer said...

Hi Mary...OHHH! I just adore dragonfly prints and I could really use something wonderful to read on our first real vacation (more than 3 days) in 42 years of marriage. We will be gone on my birthday which is April 14th (my big 60, where DID that time go???) Had to get my daughter and her hubby to come stay here while we're gone, to babysit my poor little dogs, lol. Thanks so much for a chance at the treasures, AND "Good Luck to Everyone!" By the way, your newest Schnibbles are beautiful, as always. Have a delightful week. Hugs coming your way.

Salem Stitcher said...

Ohh fun! A giveaway. I'll throw mine in there but I'm betting if he has any randomness in his heart he won't pick January 1st. But then again...how often does the first of anything ever git picked? It could happen!

Quilt Rat said...

You HAVE been busy. LOVE the OSO especially.
I see someone else has already claimed my Birthday date.....Jan 18th
You mean it's not enough that I already have to share it with my twin???

Becky said...

I absolutely love those two books. I'm waiting for the next book in the series. I've read them, but don't have my own copies. Would love to welcome them to my home.

Your Roundabout quilt is stunning. I like that Schnibble's pattern. I'll keep my eye out for it at the local quilt shops.

Take care! I'm still following your blog. I've had trouble posting regularly, too.

Becky said...

Ok. Forgot to leave my birthdate. June 23, 19__ ) Thanks for the fun give-away !

I loved those books! Can't wait for the next one to come out. Don't need to be in the drawing, just wanted to comment.

Vivian said...

Those are two books I've put on my wish list at Amazon but never got around to ordering. Maybe this will be my lucky week.
My birthday is October 14, and I see one other birthday the same day and one the next day. What are the chances that's the date that will be named? Anxiously awaiting the drum roll.

Quilts And Pieces said...

Oh I love that roundabout schnibble. I've got to keep my eyes open for more of them at the chicago show. So are those books good? I"ll have to put them on my list if you liked them.
But I'll try for the "draw" too.
Feb 27.

Stephanie D. said...

Lots of Jan through March birthdays, a few the other months, but I didn't see one August birthday. What, do Leos and Virgos not quilt?

Anyway, mine's July 23--and I already saw a 19, 21, 22, 25 and 26 in there! But the books look like just the thing for a read in the hammock this summer!

cockermom said...

Great books! My birthday is February 9! Thanks for the opportunity.

Heidi said...

Hi Mary! I love your Snibbles. Oh my, they are gloriously scrappy! You know I could hear my grandmother's voice when you said about the flowers. She always said the same thing. My birthday is Feb. 12th. Would love to win but being able to visit you makes me a winner already!

Hugs from Holland ~
Heidi
