It's back.....it's wonderful, it's fun and it's a different pre-cut ..... this time it's the....
at Moose on the Porch Quilts

starting November 2nd and every other Tuesday until May 3rd 2011

I have decided I will make my quilt in the.... which is the October selection for the Layer Cake club at Fat Quarters Shop

Now for the
#4 block....

and I made this table topper last evening for my "little" sister for her Thanksgiving table! She is not a quilter but loves the quilt projects my other sister, Simone, and I make"The Deveau Sisters"
Dianne's wedding 1992

(Always grateful for my two sisters.....)

Next on my agenda is to cut and pack for my workshop in Amherst by Karen Neary

The project is Karen's design, Meadow Song" that was in the Quilter's Connection Spring Issue 2010and I decided to use "In the Pink 11" by Buggy Barn for Henry Glass.

Kelly and I are really excited for the abundance of responses to the...

Just a few pointers to clarify;

#1 No it is not only open to the Charming Girls Quilt club... with so many asking to join the Secret Santa Swap even though they have no blog; Kelly and I felt it is Christmas, after all, and we will help these people connect and display their beautiful projects.

So, yes! everyone is in:)

#2 I need to be able to connect with you via e-mail and there are quite a few of you who have registered but do not have your e-mail address on your blog. I need this by the 10th of October at which time I will be collecting all the names and draw for the partners. (I have notified all of you individually by leaving a message on your last post of your blog about this! ) Your e-mail is what connects you to your Secret Santa so without it there is no way of connecting therefore if I do not receive your e-mail address I will assume you decided not to participate.

#3 I have visited most of the participants blogs and I would encourage you to put the Secret Santa badge on your sideboard so that it makes it official and visible to those who visit, that you are in the swap.

#4 I put the link to the previous post where you can register for the Secret Santa Swap behind the badge on the side board.

So that 's it from me for now but if you have any questions e-mail me...Next time I connect with you I will have the name of your partner to whom you will be the Secret Santa..FUN!
