I love it when I ask for help and people take the time to stop and send me a note.  I appreciate all the feedback I got from this post yesterday.  This morning when I got up, I had a thought.  Yes...a thought if you can believe it :)  If there existed such a database then how would all the designers make the money from their patterns?  Hmmmmm....ya'all know I would not take a dime from any of them as I know just how difficult it is to write a pattern and many also write wonderful books as well.  So, I doubt anyone will be coming up with any databases anytime soon....and you can be sure it wouldn't be me to develop a database anyway!

To show my appreciation....I'm giving a few fun things away to those that left a comment yesterday.  This is what I'll be giving away:
This is my favorite fusible...Mistyfuse and I'm going to give away my sample package from Quilt Market of both Mistyfuse and Transdoodle. 

A charm pack from RJR fabrics, the fabric is Giselle by Marianne Elizabeth.  When the winner receives it it won't be all pretty in that neat pile since I made a fan out of it first.

And a beautiful pattern from Golden Thyme Designs, Sunset in the Sierras.  I adore Lacy Hill....she is a lovely woman and a great designer too.

Today is the last day of school for my co-workers so I've got to run back up to the school now.  When I get back I'll do some random number generating and give these fun things away.

I'll leave you some updated Flamingo pix.  Apparently with all the work they did yesterday....they are have a day off:



  1. I have GOT to get some of those flamingos...what a fun bunch of birds!

  2. I'm telling you, the flamingos are a riot!! They sure do add some interest to the neighborhood. I imagine everyone checks to see "what's new"!

  3. I love it when you post the flamingos! LOL Lots of foul play going on today, huh? :)

  4. I so laugh at the flamingoes. Many years ago it was the geese. Folks in your suburbia would dress them up according to the weather/holiday. I got my cleaning done. Now I have a new, organized stash to shop from! Yay!

  5. One summer when I was a kid the neighborhood had a flamingo like yours who would "visit" the neighborhood yards, doing various things including pushing a stroller on someone's roof one time, but then all of a sudden it disappeared........not sure where it went. (probably some neighbor with no sense of humor stuffed her in the trash) But it sure was good for some laughs to see what she/he was up to every few days that summer. yours make me laugh at their antics and smile remembering days gone by.

  6. I love the flamingo antics! They are such a simple thing that brings smiles to so many of us! Do they know yet that they are famous on IHAN

  7. Oh yea, forgot to tell you, the cover of Zakka Style Sew Along, if you haven't seen it, has a really cute zig zag quilt with eneven spacing between the rows. Geez am so enamored with this idea, now I have to make my own, going to be a busy night, lol

  8. The flamingoes make me smile. Thanks for posting them!
    I do hope you found a solution among the comments.

  9. Looks like the Flamingos may have joined a baseball league. I wonder what it is called?

    Congrats to your IHAN team members that have received their "get out of jail" card, aka get out of school card, and now able to enjoy summertime.


  10. Hi, your blog really touches me, have been reading it for awhile... Just wanted you to know about a website i started It's a place for Bible study guides.. I also put a forum in that can be viewed from a mobile device.. I couldn't find where to contact you privately so I'm commenting, hope that is okay. :) God Bless!

  11. I love seeing the flamingos back on the blog, thanks. Now summer is officially here, when the kids are free and happy.

  12. I wish I had a flock to blog about! They are so fun!

  13. those flamingo photos crack me up. Have a good day.

  14. Man I have neighbors who go all out for each holiday and I know that they have several storage units... I wonder what these peoples garage looks like to keep all the different 'activities' in it! They are just hysterical!! And I appreciate you sharing them with us!!!

  15. The flamingos are hilarious! How wonderful that they are updated so often.
