  1. Ack! I got all excited when I saw Bree won, but then it wasn't me. :(

  2. So excited for this cute and colorful tutorial!

    Btw... I clicked on the Pink Penguin link and was taken to a different blog/website (not Ayumi's blog).

  3. Hi Elizabeth,
    I linked over from the Christmas in July links and here I am. I'm your newest follower. It's so nice to meet you!

  4. I have to giggle at Bree above, because I've totally done that when she's won before, too.


Thank you for leaving a comment for me! I appreciate each and every one of them and try to respond when time allows. Your comments totally brighten my day :)


Welcome! I'm Elizabeth, mom to a very busy nine year old boy and a one year old baby girl and I sew for my sanity. Let's get to quilting, shall we?
