Well it appears that I’ve quickly turned into a once a month kind of blogger. Unfortunately, I was pretty sick for most of February which really sucked all the energy right out of me. But I’m finally healthy again and back to work.
How will you all be spending your day? I plan on quilting as soon as I get finished writing this post. I have several charity quilts I need to work on for my local guild. We’re trying to donate at least 75 quilts to a local children’s shelter.
I’ve been playing around with Roscoe and some new thread. I thought I would share a couple pictures to possibly inspire you all to go quilt on Worldwide Quilting Day. By the way, the variegated thread is Superior Threads So Fine 40 and it is awesome. Seriously. It’s my new favorite thread.
Since we can all agree I’m a terrible blogger lately, I thought you might like to follow me on Instagram too. You can click the little icon below (I’ve also added it to my sidebar). My Instagram ID is ruebelv.
I haven’t been on Instagram long but it’s a great way for me to easily share pics of current projects. It’s fast and I can snap pics with my phone as I’m quilting. Works out great for me because deep down inside I’m a little lazy. However, I AM going to make an effort to blog at least 2 to 3 times a week. I know it should be more but let’s face it, that’s probably my limit.
Do you think I forgot I mentioned a giveaway in the post title? We can’t celebrate Worldwide Quilting Day without a giveaway. But what should we giveaway? How about an awesome Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 8 and a charm pack of Barcelona by Zen Chic? And I might even throw in a little something extra.
All you need to do to enter is leave a comment and tell me a fun fact about yourself. Here’s one for me…I was an exchange student my junior year of high school. I was lucky enough to spend a whole year in Norway! I would love to go back someday.
If you would like another chance to win you can follow me on Instagram. Make sure you leave a separate comment telling me you are now following me.
I’ll use Mr. Random to pick a winner on Monday. Good luck!
Now go quilt something on this special holiday just for us!
