This and That

Hi girls. I'm having a contest on my blog right now called Trimmed with Love. Basically you can enter anything you've added trim to -- ric rac, eyelet, etc etc etc. Lots of awesome prizes too!
In other news, I was wondering who wants to continue this group for another year? I understand (believe me I understand) if anyone is too busy. I think I would enjoy another time though. If you want, you can privately e-mail me. I believe we started in September last year, so it's probably time to think about it.

Also, would you like to change it up any way? I know sometimes people start with their own center square and then the quilt is passed to a different person each month who will add a border until the quilt is finished. There can be different border themes each month. Tell me what you think.

And in one personal side note, I plan to sign a contract with a fabric company this week to design fabric for them. (squeal) It's a dream for me and I can't believe it's really happening.

Take care!
Love, Melissa

I hope you continue...I'm just a follower on the blog. I heard about you through Linda at Prairie Flower Farm...another great lady :) :)

I am a beginning quilter...and I like how you post one block a month. it's easy for me to follow...I"m working on my own quilt by hand. It's taking forever, but that's good and that's okay :) :) I will eventually start making some of these blocks here :) :)

So I vote "yes" please..:) :) :) :)

Thank you for running this blog as well as Lilac Farm...I'm now following both :) :) :)

Also, mucho thanks for letting me post a comment here :) Greetings from Oregon,
Heather H :) :) :)

Although I haven't got to experience this fully yet, as my month is Sept, I would like to continue this group. Maybe move me up in the year a bit, Melissa. haha

I'm in too. What ever you decide is okay with me.
Congratulations Melissa, I know it's very exciting for you. I'm looking forward to seeing your designs.

Melissa, although I've been late getting blocks out the past few months (my apologies to all concerned), I would love to continue another year. Congratulations to you on your exciting new venture!

Linda, hubby and I leave later in the week first for my daughter's wedding and then a week-long vacation -- which is so needed. I'll be working on your block during the drive. Can't wait to get started, but right now I've got to get that wedding dress finished!!

I have loved every part of it...although I haven't found my package for last month's square and haven't made it yet...its in a box somewhere. I have a new address, again, so it has been a little crazy. I probably need to bow out since the next year is going to insure that life keeps a little crazy. I am just now getting mine done...and I was from the first month. And it couldn't have come at a better time for me. Can't wait to finish quilting and get it on my bed. I love you gals and you mean the world to me!
