Dog Days of Summer and Creative Pieces of Fabric (GIVEAWAY)

The  Dog Days of Summer.  Do you suppose they were talking about August?  The month where it is hotter than blue blazes and summer is winding down?  Where we almost hang around like the dogs do, in our home they are called fur babies, and just sit on the porch and drink lemonade and iced tea and watch time go by?   I do believe in my humble opinion those days are just a memory in this old gal's eyes.   School starts earlier, and if your child is in fall sports or band that practice starts earlier and we are all so busy with life I am thinking that is indeed a memory.   Now since retiring DH and I do our own thing, whatever it is for the day, just living the moment of the day and we do enjoy our backyard and sitting under the shade tree until it gets toasty warm that you could fry an egg on the patio.

Baseball is gearing up to see who goes for the Pennant race, Professional football players are getting ready for their big opening days and the dragon flies are out.   Looks like it is indeed the ending of the summer to me, well unless we have and Indian summer but we never know about when that one comes to us.  

It is getting close to the end of my class with Pat Winter and the crazy quilting and quilters, but certainly not the end of my playing with this beautiful art.  There are odds and ends of fabric and pretties left over and certainly to pretty to just trash into the abyss of the dumpster.   So, Miss Use What I Have, I will play with these creative pieces of fabric that are left over.  Part of the fun is piecing them together and just see where they take me.   Telling me where to go with the beads and pretties.  Like a little muse  with her wings fluttering around.  My muse has little wings by the way, don't know if every one's does. 

Oh be sure and stop by the new blog and see what others are creating also with Crazy Quilt Passion, it is on my sidebar.  All are invited to follow that blog also but I am only giving away on this blog. 

Soooooooooo here is the deal, I just noticed that I now have over 100 followers YAHOOOOO and I do thank you from the bottom of my heart.   It feels good that y'all do follow me and my random stories.  THANK YOU !!!!    I thought what can I offer to y'all so I did two bookmarks of the Crazy Quilting and will offer them as two giveaways, and knowing me will make some more but so far I have two to give.    They are encrusted with pretties and has Sari silk ribbons on them.  

The rules?   Well, only to be a follower and comment on  this post that you would like to win one and which one in case you fall in love with one over the other.   That is it.    There is a date of  August 31 for the cut off.  Sorry have to do that part of an ending. 


I just found out I am going to be gone the 31st so will do the drawing a little early, just before we leave.   Good luck dear viewers.

August 28th

The winners have been drawn and Terry Daugherty and Introverted Art are the owners of the bookmarks.  Thanks for visiting  and playing.    

Thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world today.

  4. Me, me pick me!!!!! Annette-how lovely of you to offer to give away these beautiful bookmarks. Summer won't end around here until the end of September--what I wouldn't give for some rain. It will only be 90 today though--a big drop from the last couple of months. We were actually able to sit on the porch without feeling like we were in an oven!
