A winner, and a little procrastination…

Thanks for all the comments on the last giveaway post! It looks like there are a lot of people out there who are pregnant or know someone who is! I’m not, and I don’t even know anyone who is (how about it, Kim?!), so I’m not sure why I was busy making baby blankets!

The random number generator selected number 39, Jody, who’s indicated that this blanket will be going to her 8 month old daughter. I’m glad to hear there’s a little one out there who will enjoy it!

I hope you’ll all check back – I’m sure there will be another little giveaway in the future… though maybe not until after the New Year… December really snuck up on me and now I’m feeling a bit behind!

And here’s what happens when I don’t feel like doing what I’m supposed to do…

I start a new quilt!

My to do list is quite long, but as per usual, I tend to dawdle when there are things I have to do… We’re thinking about picking up our tree this weekend, and I’m afraid it might have to go skirt-less, at least for a while.

In any case, I’m already thinking of this quilt as ‘a field of flowers’. Perhaps it will remind me of the nicer Vermont days during the long months of winter.

    I’m curious about your border too. I really love saturated colors but I realize not everyone shares this view so I like how you combine them with a white border that allows them to shine without being overwhelming.

    Your quilts are so fun! Can you tell me what white fabric you use on your quilts? I’ve been looking into making us a king size (yikes!) quilt and I like the idea of squares in the white fabric but have no idea what would be ideal for bedding. Thanks!

    I really like the idea of flowers now. Especially today, brrrr.
    I do the same thing. I feel that I need to take advantage while I like to do something. That’s is why I have so many quilts in works.
