A winner & some class info

Thursday, November 11, 2010

I apologize that I have not got around sooner to announcing the winner of the Square Root pattern giveaway.  Here are the TOP TEN things that have been keeping me busy:

1.) First and foremost - being my kids mom.
2.) Getting my polka dot quilt off to the quilter.
3.) Getting ready to teach my fabric pincushion classes for the Quilter's Harvest (which is tomorrow).
4.) Getting things lined up for my first Gigi's Thimble teaching debut (see below).
5.) Taking an unusual amount of naps (which is sooo not like me & NO - I'm not pregnant:)
6.) Enjoying old friends while they stayed the weekend with us.
7.) Working on my Lori Holt applique project.
8.) Being a room mom to 26 kindergartners and seeing way too much spit, drool and bubbles in one day(and from one child in particular), than I'm comfortable with.
9.) Enjoying my second grader's championship win in football!


10.) Procrastinating writing the instructions for my new pattern (really, that makes me feel SO busy, because it is always LURKING (!) in the back of my mind.)

 Anyways.  Onto our winner.

True Random Number Generator chose Gail as our winner!

Gail said... I absolutely love this quilt and the fabric isn't bad either!!
I'd love to win a copy of this pattern. Thanks for the chance.

Thanks for your sweet words Gail!  Send me your mailing address and I'll get that right off to you!

For those of you who are sad you didn't win, you can hop, skip or jump on over to my etsy shop to get your own copy.

If you really love this pattern and/or you really love me J/K :) you can sign up for a retreat/class/trunk show at Alpine Retreats.  I'll be teaching on two different weekends this spring (click HERE for more details).  In my classes, we'll be making Square Root, experimenting with design layout options, learning basic piecing, applique and simply ~ having a ball!  Grab your girlfriends, daughters or mothers and enjoy a fabulous weekend with me in the beautiful town of Alpine, Utah.

You won't be disappointed!

  6. Congrats to the winner!

    Amber, you look like a busy busy mom! Isn't it fun? Nothing is better than being a mom (I can even say that as a mom on the other side - my kids are adults).

    The retreat looks great! I've never been to Utah but the pictures you show from time to time show me that it's beautiful.

  7. Woo! Woo! I'm so impressed with all you're doing (I always am). Ambs...it looks like you're in high demand - teaching a lot of fun things! Way to go!
