Giveaway!

The view outside my patio door
It is COLD here in Laramie!  And snowy.  But it is nice and cozy here in the house and I finally feel like having Christmas music on.  Still working on customer quilts and my new machine is almost set up.  Rudi works on it every evening and it might be all together this evening.  (fingers crossed)


Day Two of setup
But I am excited for my new machine and look forward to finishing up the customer quilts on it.  For now I am using my Prodigy and it is working just fine.  I just got used to computerized quilting with my Avante and the Prodigy is not computerized so my body is not thanking me.  ;)  That and I have to move the couch out of the way so that I can quilt!  LOL!

HQ Fusion (24") with Pro Stitcher
It is too cold to start moving stuff from the garage into the container but we hope to get that done this weekend.  And then the construction will begin for the new Studio!  Since this is my first experience with construction, I am looking forward to the challenge.  But why do people look at me with pity and tell me to *be patient*???  Do they know something I don't?  I have full trust in our contractor and since I have patience by the boatload I do look forward to the experience.  And the end result will be my little piece of HEAVEN!  :)

REMIND ME OF THIS IF THINGS GET TOUGH  ;)
************************************************************************
 
 And now to the Giveaway!!!  How about a Cherry Pit Bag!  This is made of red flannel, is hand washable and can be used hot or cold.  To win, leave a Comment at the bottom of this post and I will draw a winner this Sunday, December 8th. 
 
I just found a great post on how to set your blogger profile so that you can be contacted from your comment.
 

Cherry Pit Bag - neck size 7" x 14"


Good luck...and keep warm!

From there to Texas, California, Washington, Virginia and I'm finally resting in Mississippi. Right now I'm working on some Christmas fairies and red would be a nice touch on them. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family.

I would love to be able to work from home doing long arm quilting and embroidery. Still have a 30 hr a week job to keep food on the table and pay bills...but one can always HOPE and PLAN! This cherry pit bag would be great to try out! Hoping the sun finds you soon.

  92. I would LOVE one of these bags! I want to try it for my eyes. My ophthalmologist wants me to place a warm compress over my eyes every night to help with my dry eyes. A damp/wet washcloth doesn't last very long and I always end up with drips. ;(

    I think the moist heat from the bag will do nicely. Can't wait to see if I win!
