Heavens to Betsy Wool Give away and Morris update

                                                Cloudy day in California , waiting for my husband!

Today in Southern California were having a cloudy day. Morris just had his breakfast again. I look at this big orange cat a big bundle of gopher, mouse killing machine and I think does he know he is going to bring great joy to some lucky Heavens to Betsy wool lover.It's silly to say for some reason I thought I was the only Heavens to Betsy wool lover out there.  Boy was I wrong! I have been writing everyone’s names and checking Heaven's to Betsy blog daily to make sure I get everyone’s second chance to win in the give away. It is so  wild to think there are so many Rug hookers, quilters and fiber artists that are busy working away on their projects like me.

Don’t forget I need some way to get a hold of you if you win. There can be several people with the same first name.Also don't forget to scroll down to the second posting on how to enter.Cheri

I Finally found the material that I like to finish the sides of my Sew Primitive Quilt!

 Yesterday I went to the Country Loft found the red fabric to complete the sides of my Sew Primitive quilt.I bought a present and then had to return it because the box was unsealed in a corner which  meant   having to make a trip of over 15 miles in the same day.I Stopped a cat fight in the middle of the day which is weird usually the stray cat is around at night . Morris is fine this time it wasn't his fault he was in his yard! Don't worry his paw is fine for choosing the winner.Oh and finally
I hung up the Santa Suit and beard that was in my in Suv.
Geraniums are blooming

New sign I bought yesterday.

 So now I have 3 projects that I am so close to getting completed I am just so wanting to move on .I am stitching the 12 days of Christmas quilt, Sew primitive I just have to finish  everything  Ahhh. Do you ever see the finish line and then for some reason start another project. Maybe it's just me.That's why I like to run out to the garden to play when I need a break.

                                                         Nesting day for me . I am putting the sides on my quilt!

Your primitive quilt is adorable. I love it. A few years ago I had a friend with cancer. All his friends drew their hands on a piece of fabric of their choice, wrote their names on it and his wife turned them into a quilt. It was so special. All your applique pieces reminded me of that.

Hi Kim,What a great idea for your friend! My quilt is from a pattern that quilt artist Cheri Payne creates who makes lots of folk art quilts.I love her quilts. Cheri

Betsy said...

Love the primitive quilt Cheri :)

Thanks Betsy!

Julia said...

Cheri, you sound like me, I have quite a few unfinished projects that are all calling me and I can't seem to find the time to finish anything before I start something else. It must be the creative spirit churning inside.

Your little quilt is adorable. I presume that it's for a wall hanging. I LOVE the little hen.

Don't loose Moris for Heavens to Betsy' sake. I sure would love to win some of her wool. JB

Courtney said...

I really love your quilt. I think applique is so cool. With this quilt, there are so many neat things to find and look closely at! Your ladybug sign is also a great find!

I think the photo of your Mauli and Morris is so cute! My two Bichon Poodles Smokey and Max do the same thing waiting for Dave to come home! They know he is coming even before he turns the corner coming down our street!
LOVE your Sew Primitive quilt and the fabric you chose for finishing!
Are you having fun hosting the give-away? That wool is highly sought after! LOL! Have fun!

Hi Cathy, It has been fun and I am shocked at how many wool lovers are out there but the best is I have started to see so many interesting blogs that I am enjoying looking at. It is a small world!
Don't you just love our animals! Cheri

Joanne said...

Cheri - I also love that pic of your furbabies! They certainly bring smiles to us! Your quilts are wonderful - Love the primness of them! Wish I could do something like that but it certainly wouldn't look so great!

Larkrise garden girl said...

Hi Joanne, Anybody could do Prim quilts their fun because it's wool applique and the stitches can be just a back stitch or just a plain stitch. Wool appique is so fun and not as fussy as cotton applique!No turning under the edges like cotton. Believe me I am a average quilter and that's fine with me . It's fun!

Julia said...

Cheri, thanks for your comment about my sourdough tarter. You would have laughed at me if you saw me carrying my little bowl around the house, putting it in the sun on the table and trying to move it as the sun was moving and finally moving it in the family room not far from the wood stove. I had it in a cardboard box all covered with thick towels. Today is nice and warm temperatures outside and I left it in the family room hoping that it will be fine. I just have to be patient Doris said. I've got my fingers crossed. lol... JB

Hi Julia, I think it is funny how we both had starter on our minds. Good Luck I am going to try to make a starter when it warms up in my kitchen. I ordered some more wool from HTB. Can you believe I ordered the wool to finish my wool project 2 yards and I picked the wrong one.I can always use more wool.I am such a wool piggy...Lol
