Giveaway winner!

Sorry it's taken me a bit to announce the winner of my giveaway, but I have finally stolen a few moments, (I should be quilting) to congratulate Joyzelle for winning the Happy Camper jelly roll. Thank you to everyone for entering my giveaway and thank you so much for all the kind comments. Joyzelle - be sure to email your address to me at and I will get your jelly roll sent out!

I am really excited about my quilt that I am trying frantically to finish by Wednesday, I figure I have already spent about 50 hours quilting and I am about 3/4 done. I can't wait to show you when it is all finished.

And finally-my little girl is 5! She is growing up so fast and I confess I am not excited about sending her to school in the fall. I will miss her so much. Grandma made her this cute dress. It was the best gift for a 5 year old little princess (and believe me she tells me every day that she is a princess). She was so excited to wear her dress to church on Sunday! Thanks Mom!

There is nothing better than a dress that twirls! She absolutely loves it!

Congratulations to Joyzelle! What a nice giveaway!
I adore the picture of your little princess. It brings back memories of the days when my little one was twirling around in her new made dress. Nothing is sweeter!
