It's a New Year so let's try something new
I turned 48 on March 29, so it is a new year, for me that is, so I am going to try new things in April. I already have a button for Festival of Half Square Triangles, Novelty and Solid Layer Cake Swap and I think I will try this it looks interesting and I always wanted to learn to do paper piece, so I am jumping in with my needle,thread and a piece of paper.

I had such a wonderful birthday and I want to THANK my husband, Randy, and our daughter, Kristin, for my new Ipad 2. It is a awesome piece of technology. Also, I want everyone to know Kristin did a lot to help me with her grandparents 50th Wedding Anniversary Party, I really appreciate all her help! Thank you to all my friends and family for such a wonderful time. I am so blessed to have all of you.

Thank you for reading, Tell your friends about the Mystery Giveaway. Blog about it.


  1. Hey Lisa
    I always write down the fabric I buy some have it on hand in reference when I make a quilt up.....mind you I haven't made many quilts so this hasn't been an issue too much for me.
    Thanks for hosting a great giveaway! I'll have to pop over and see the Amy Butler one! =D

  2. I usually search if I don't remember. Usually I can at least narrow it down to manufacturer and designer. Happy Birthday!

  3. I am really bad. I hardly ever pay any attention to the name or designer of fabrics. I just always buy what I like. If you wanted to know what fabric I used, I would have to take it to Melissa at the LQS for her to tell me.

  4. I often buy FQ's because I like them without any idea what designer/fabric line they are! I don't write anything down but I do know about my favourite fabrics!!!

  5. I usually buy my fabric because there is something that I like about
    it in the first place...either color,
    design, etc. There are a few designers that I do keep up with, and will try & make note of their new
    fabric lines. I have started taking a small swatch of each of my fabrics, placing them in a notebook, and writing the pattern & designer by each. This does help a lot, especially when I take part in charm
    square swaps, and you need to identify the fabrics. A lot of my favorite fabrics are now out of print, and this system seems to work
    for me. Thanks for the chance to win!!
