Calling California and a Quilt Update...

 Remember that there are three panels for the "Over The River" quilt I'm
teaching at Crazy Quilters. The first one (on the top of the quilt) is the actual 
"Over The River" section. The center is designed with the words, "Over the river 
and through the woods, to Grandmother's house we go", and the third panel, 
located at the bottom of the quilt, is the "Through The Woods" section.

I'm planning to create an applique' design for the center panel. I want mine to 
be unique, so I've decided that's where I'm going to make my alteration to the 
original design. I frequently do this, and you really shouldn't be afraid to put your 
own touch on anything that you create either. The other thing I like to tell my
students is that, when you show your family and friends your final creation,
they will almost never see the original pattern next to it. They will only
appreciate what they're looking at and have nothing else with which to
compare it. That will really free you up to let your imagination carry you away.
You can see here that I'm nearly finished with the "Over The River" panel.
I'll start on the "Through The Woods" panel as soon as I finish the applique'
block for our guild quilt. I'm hoping that I'll have that finished by the weekend.
Fourth Blog Birthday Giveaway Update...
When I post my giveaways, I always ask that you PULEEEEZ make sure that
I have a way to contact you if you win. Well, I've been trying since I announced
the winners to reach the winner of the first giveaway package...without success.

Subsequently, I have not yet mailed any of the packages so that I can give
the second place winner a chance to change her selection, and so on for the
rest of the winners. I really don't like having to take away a gift, but this is

If I don't hear from you by the end of the day today, I'll be contacting the other 
winners and then picking one more name for the fourth giveaway set. Please put
"GIVEAWAY WINNER" in the subject line if you send an email, so I'll know it's 
from you. (Send the email to dliljegren (at) brynwoodneedleworks (dot) com)

If I don't hear from the winner by the end of today, I'll send another email to 
the other winners so they can have a chance to change their minds on their prizes.

Thanks to everyone else for your patience and understanding. I can't think of a
better reason to go to your "settings" and amend your "No Comment Blogger" status.

Your stitching on this panel is such perfection that I had to look really closely to see that it was your stitching. Your teaching about putting your own stamp on a project is wonderful. That is the creativity of creating! Wednesday Smiles...
