Aurifil winners and a fantastic Veranda project to share

Hi everyone,
You all have so many great projects to work on this year!  Makes me want to pull out my sewing machine and sew. 
Wait… my sewing machine is out – along with about a hundred yards of fabric ironed and washed on our living room floor.  Yes, I did say “living room”.  Yes, the front room of our house.  Well, what can I say, fabric is important and anyone visiting should know that, right?

Staci, one of this blog’s followers, sent me a beautiful picture of a Veranda sewing machine mat, cover, and pincushion she made for her sister-in-law Emily this week.  She used Veranda and a Thimble Blossom pattern.  Isn’t it beautiful?  (It definitely belongs in the front room of a house, IMO.)

And she made a little iron-cover to match!  And the iron is color coordinated!  LOOOVE IT!

One of them must have a brother with great yaste – he chose a wife who sews like his sister!

And now for the Aurifil giveaway.  The winners, using the Random Number Generator, are:

Regina, who said:
I am collecting 4 patches to make charity quilts for cancer patients – I have been gifted with nearly 2000 patches already, so I have lots of assembling in the months ahead. It is such a great feeling! I cannot wait to make that first delivery.  (Great job, Regina!)

Donna, who said:

Fab! Been hearing lots of good stuff about these threads and read the interview! I am excited about a FMQ challenge I am participating in @ sewcalgal. thanks for the chance to win!

And Kim C, who said:
I would love to try Aurifil! I am signed up for Sew Cal Gals FMQ Challenge and would love to practice with this thread..I want to explore the possibilities with all the different weights and types of thread. Thanks so much for the giveaway.

So many people are trying the Sew Cal Gal FMQ Challenge I had to check it out.  It sounds like fun!
Send me your addresses, ladies, and I’ll send out the thread.

I have used Aurifil thread all this week and I have to say that I think it is the most lint-free cotton thread I’ve every sewn with.  It is amazing.  If you didn’t win this time please be sure to stop back next month, when I have another Aurifil giveaway.

Happy sewing, everyone!

P.S.  I’m excited about speaking to the Forsyth Piecers and Quilters guild in Winston-Salem, NC tomorrow night!
