The Hopping is Done
It is sad to see it done - but the Ghastlie Hop is over. Such a wonderful display of creativity by my Ghastlie Sisters. You must know, none of us knew what the other was working on - all a secret. Secrets such as this are hard. BUT oh, the fun and the different projects that evolved where fantastic with the use of the same fabric.
There was not a rocket scientist here - so I pulled the random winner of my give away by calling two people and asking them to pick a number from 1-128 and then I used the random generator. Thinking I would have three names that I would then pull from a hat. Well my number and one of the callers were the same - Fate? I think so - so that is my winner. SO Marie of Hummingbird Treasures is the winner of the unfinished runner and Ghastlie fabric bundle - and a surprise. I will send seperate e-mail to her. Thank you all for your lovely comments and for participating in the Ghastlie Blog Hop - 2011.
RUBY MARKET TOTE
As you can see, I'm not using 'Ruby' - but rather what I had in my stash and something that is more ME. Love earthy tones and country scenes, plaids and stripes, and muslin. And went thru my never ending boxes of floss and picked out 'possible' colors - they could change.
12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS SAMPLER
And I finished the block #4 of the sampler. Just working out of that Christmas fabric tote. This block would look so cute done up all scrappy with thin sashing and cornerstones! Ah, another time.
Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it. - - - Greg Anderson
