The Winner for the 200th follower......................

This time I put all the names in a basket and DH chose one this morning. The name chosen was "JANE" of World Embroideries blog. Congratulations Jane. I'm sorry I don't know you however I clicked on your blog to get the link and see you are from IL, a neighbor!!!!! I hope you enjoy your brooch. I will need your address so I can mail this out to you.

Thanks to all who entered. I will be having another giveaway for October, another CQ brooch in pinks in remembrance of summer 2009. (Waiting for battery to charge for picture) I will announce it next Thursday on Oct 1st when I announce the winner of my birthday giveaway. By the way, thanks so much for all the birthday wishes and stories you shared. They just made me look forward to a birthday milestone even more :-)

A few pictures of the class room yesterday...I found some neat alphabet rubber stamps at Michael's so I used my coupon!!!! I stamped several words on the painted shelving unit from Jilly just for fun. The two cane seat chairs(one beside shelves) from Karen were painted white with pink cushions.

 They were green, but you know I must match things ;-) This class room was truly built from friendship and love. I hope the students feel comfortable and enjoy their time here. I am getting anxious and weekend is the first official class. I am collecting pretty glass beaded knobs for the corner unit......that is why some are missing ;-0

 Jilly and Karen are coming by next Thursday to play with stitches and test it out. That should be fun. It was pleasant to sit and play with Leslie last week. I only wished it were more often.

 I displayed my puzzle pieces and various CQ items along the bottom of the design board  to show students how CQ can be made into anything you use cloth for.

 Time to make breakfast. Have a great weekend and if you go to any yard sales, I hope you find special treasures. Thank you for all the sweet comments and hang in there for another giveaway in Oct!
