No, I'm not Hiding :)

I know it seems like forever since I've posted, I've been so busy I don't know weather to scratch my watch or wind my butt....honestly.  Yesterday was Zach's 7th Birthday.
Lots of planning and preparations for a Pokemon Birthday party for a few of his friends on Sunday.  What do I know about Pokemon?  Nothing....I've been doing my research....I'm so grateful for Google :)

I've also been preparing for the Cub Scout Cross Over on Saturday and below is a little Tiger I've been working on for the flag.  Researching good scissors has always been fun....and while cutting out this little orange Tiger....I was extremely grateful I own some of the best applique scissors on the market. 

Oh and you know what else is a life saver?  Robert Kaufman's Boy Scout Fabric line.    I am telling you, Robert Kaufman Fabrics totally Rocks!!!!  Check out how neat the fabrics are that I get to make the flag with.....aren't these just so perfect? I will post photos of the flag when it is done.
Yesterday a package arrived in the mail, Girls World by Jennifer Paganelli.  I won an on-line class and this book with patterns from SewCalGal's blog a few weeks ago.  Now I have something Girlie to look forward to after the Cub Scout Flag is finished :)
Part of my brain is in Salt Lake City today.  Today is Schoolhouse and you know how much I love to run from room to room seeing all the new designs and getting a sneak peak at all the latest gadgets.  I am missing some of my friends who are there....and sad I won't be seeing the same time  I also know a Momma can't be missing her son's 7th birthday and Cub Scout Crossover....if she can at all help it....and thankfully I can....but I'm still thinking about Spring Quilt Market.

Robert Kaufman and Quilts for Kids - A Giveaway too!!!

Thank you for the kind words for my son...he is feeling much better.  His illness was brief....and I am very grateful for that.  There are children who are not so fortunate....some are seriously ill and some are in great need of comfort due to a tragedy.  As I was thinking about this I remembered a wonderful presentation in Houston for Fall Quilt Market.  It was a School House Presentation given by Linda Arye for Robert Kaufman Fabric Company

Linda is the founder of Quilts for Kids.  Their mission is, "Transforming discontinued, unwanted and other fabrics into patchwork quilts that comfort children with life-threatening illnesses and children of abuse". 

P&G and Downy  and Robert Kaufman Fabrics are just two sponsors of the Quilts for Kids project.  There are many more and you can read all about their wonderful program the Quilts for Kids website. Please take the time to go over and read about their program. 

Since I promised TWO Giveaways today, I thought it was apropos to offer some Animal Party Too! charm packs. 

Robert Kaufman Fabric Company has a line of 33 fabrics by Amy Schimler that benefit Quilts for Kids.   How incredibly wonderful is that?  The talent of Amy Schimler coupled with the generosity of Robert Kaufman that is something to smile about, right? Right! 

Look how cheerful the fabrics are in the Animal Party Too! line.  I never understood what folks do with one charm pack.  Am I alone here?  I'm always thinking two is  good start and then you can add some fabric for borders, right?  Tell me what your thoughts are on the subject.

Since it's my blog....for today....I'm saying ya need two charm packs and there will be two winners chosen.  Do you have that?  Two winners will each get two Animal Party Too! charm packs compliments of Robert Kaufman Fabrics by way of the IHAN blog (they were kind enough to provide them for a giveaway).

To enter, visit the Quilts for Kids website and come back and tell me something you learned.  If you have participated in the Quilts for Kids project, tell us about your experience.   I'll choose TWO winners on Wednesday December 22nd.  Feel free to spread the word if you are so inclined :)

THANK YOU Robert Kaufman Fabrics!!! 


PS....if you are looking for something incredibly fun to do with your kids, or the kid in you, check out Dave's Snowflake Patterns....I love making these during the winter months :)
