Happy Tuesday, hope I am not to late!

I have worked on my Super Sized Hexagon Log Cabin, got the block all sewn together.

I went to the store and purchased the fabric, got home and guess what? It is the wrong color. So, later this week I will take my creation with me and find the right shade. Two trips to town in one week because I didn't THINK! Look boo hoo!

Lesson learned to match colors on a project, bring it or a color swatch with you to the store.

Here is an inspirational photo of a great pattern I saw this morning in the kitchen. David picked me this tulip the other day and it was opened this morning. Nature can really inspire me.

The Prize is going to be something really good, I just don't know if I what (It is crazy around my house at Easter time). So, if you will just play along with me I will give a quilting book, jelly roll, or a few charm packs away to the winner on April 7, 2012, at around midnight. Everyone get's one chance to win. If you are a no-reply blogger, please leave your email address, unless you just don't want to win. This giveaway is open to everyone, because my friend across the seas are always so great to me.

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


  1. I'm a happy follower!
    I don't remember all the designers - just the ones I especially like! I wish I could say I was organised enough to keep a written record along with a swatch of fabric but I just don't!!!

  2. I usually keep the selvages to help me remember later. Either that or I have stalked a fabric line (Ruby) and will never forget. I usually can remember the manufacturer so I can search online.

  3. I write them down when I order any fabric and keep a log so I know how much I spend...However when writing blog post I rarely say where the fabric is from! I'll have to remember to do this in future! =D

  4. I'm a follower. :) I sometimes just happen to remember, especially if it's a favorite line. If I don't remember, that's okay. I don't take notes or anything.

  5. I remember some, and give credit when I can, but if it is scrappy then mostly likely I won't know. Especially since I have purchased some fabric at thrift stores. Thank you for the great giveaway - I love mysteries. If I win, some scraps of Backyard baby would be great. :)

    P.S. Look at all those buttons on your blog! Proud of you!
