News & Winners

New button on the side bar - most of you know Sarah of Confessions of a Fabric Addict. She is part of a group of bloggers presenting this delightful new book. Check out the listing on her blog for dates and hosts. **if you click the button it will take you to that post**

There are some other new buttons on the side bar, so please drop in and check things out. Maybe you even missed one that's been there a while. I try to keep things over there that might interest you folks - not that I am doing them all - welllllll.......

And I so meant to post this on 'Peek A Boo' - my goal this year is to meet some of blogland's nearby sweeties. I got to meet up with Robbie of Rooee's Confetti. Gosh we conversed for some time between blogs before realizing we are only about 30 miles from each other. She mentioned she would be doing part of her Quilt Guild's program - just a 15 minute drive for me, so I dropped by for a surprise. (see that arm in the photo - green sweater - that's me)

**Almost forgot - check out Barbara at Cat Patches as she is looking to see if there is interest in a mini/doll quilt swap**
