Sweet P

Well, yesterday I blogged about some of the many blogs I read and what my RVer friends are doing and where they're going. Today's blog has a little bit different twist.

I am not a quilter but I wanabe. One of the blogs I read is Paulette's Quilting blog. She calls it Sweet P Quilting and Creations. She is a very experienced quilter and has lots of photos on her blog. She also has a whole list of other blogs that other blogging friends write. Now I have been around quilts all my life and have seen many hand stitched from beginning to end but I have never seen as many in the same place!

She writes a very interesting story as well as great photos. I love to hear about her trips to garage sales. She always does something interesting with her finds. She is very creative. Here is a quilt she made from used shirts from thrift stores.

Recently she had a photo of a yo yo quilt. I remember my grandmother making one of those by hand. It took a long time. My favorite quilt my grandmother made was grandmother's flower garden. That was some 55 years ago. I wonder whatever happened to it.

She is having a Giveaway with a book, pattern and fabric to make a wall hanging. I left her a comment, added my name to her list of followers (she doesn't know I have been following her from day one) and now I have mentioned her in my current blog. That gets me three chances to win the prize. It would be a great start to a "Quilting Habit" -- I hope I win!!

If you get a chance check out her blog --- Tell her Jenny sent ya!
That's it for today!

Hey Jenny, it's a small, small world! Paulette is my wife and she was just delighted to see your blog tonight! Her quilting blog sure does a lot better than my RV Blog - who'd have guessed that there are way more quilters around than RV'ers!!
