Here is the giveaway I promised. 
It is an over-the-arm pincushion I made.  It fits nicely over the arm of your chair or sofa with a couple of pockets for a small pair of scissors and thread.  Since I have company in town for a while, I won't be drawing the winner until Sunday, August 4, 2013.  To enter just leave a comment on what you are currently working on, or how you are spending your summer (or winter). And, please make sure I have a way of contacting you. 

Enjoy your week and

Quilt happy,

Oh, wow! I'd love to win that! I am working on at least 5 projects at the moment. But there is not much time right now. I want to finish at least one of them soon.

Mimi said...

That would be so handy!!! Thanks for the chance. At the moment I am handquilting a lap quilt that I made for my SIL... it's only one and a half months late (eek!) but when it is done and she sees it, late won't mean a thing!!!

That is very clever and so practical!

Our summer has been spent with lots of fun grandchildren time.

Lovely pincushion. I am spending my summer helping granny keep house and working on hand quilting.

Enjoy your company! I have gotten caught up on one BOM I am doing and hope to get caught up on the second. Knew I shouldn't have tried to do two at one time! :P

I am currently working on a wallhanging for our fall bazaar, a block for a Wounded Warrior quilt, and a crib quilt for our great granddaughter

Terrific and useful idea! I'm mainly still getting to know Cambridge MA - having so much fun seeing all the new sites. We return to home and San Diego the middle of August. Then after settling back in will be more able to quilt! I do have one quilt that I'm working on for my DH but probably will finish that on the west coast. Thanks for putting my name in the hat for your drawing!

Hi Marilyn...(miss wacky women!!)

This summer I worked on my tan in Hawaii. I sew every Tuesday with a group of friends...many of which you know!!

I have been working on pillow cases, a quilt (wacky women kit) which is donated to OK residents, some dresses and night gowns for my granddaughters and much much more!!

I could so use your darling armchair pin cushion!!

love you blog!!
