A little giveaway

I had a very productive week in my sewing room. Hubby was away for a few days and I was able to devote my full attention to sewing. Not that I don't get a lot done when he's home, he just likes a home cooked meal every night LOL! I don't know about you, but when I'm zipping along sewing it's hard to make myself stop, put on an apron and cook a feast. Noooooo, I ordered pizza one night and ate it for two! Day 3 I drove through Burger King on my way home from the post office, what a multi tasker I am! First of all I finished my quilt (not shown) for Market and sent it off to fabulous Brenda for some of her quilting love. It features the gray & pink fabric I showed you in my last post, all I can say is it's purrrfectly cute!
Then I pulled out my little Annie blocks who have been shoved off to the side for a long time, they were screaming to be finished cause they're so darn cute. Well, I had set them aside because I decided I wanted my block sashings to be a little wider. So I had to do some unsewing (don't you just hate that!) before I could re sew. Much happier with this change. This week I'll add the sashings and borders. Now don't even ask me why there is a golf ball in the picture LOL! See, thats what Hubby does during the winter, practice putting indoors, we have a regular little miniature golf course going on here. Either that or Cleo was batting it around.

I have lots of 2-inch wide fabric strips left from framing my blocks. My Annies are trimmed to
5-1/2" x 6-1/2" and these strips will work for this size block. I felt someone might love these scraps for their Annies, most are reproduction prints and a few vintage. There should be enough to frame all 12 blocks. I also added the January Annie Pattern to start you out.

Cleo will draw a name next Saturday, the 28th! So please leave a comment if these interest you, and hit my follow button if you have not already (it can be lonely talking to yourself over here)!
Until next time!

Well, the first commenter never wins, but I'll give it a whirl anyway! Your Annies are really cute with their vintage sashing.

I am a follower and always enjoy reading your blog. I used to live in Lenexa, so it's nice to hear what's going on in that area!
