my mama didn’t raise no quitters……

I am not a quitter.  I am a quilter, though… (only one letter different!!!!!!!!!!!!!)


the kimono give-away is not done.  In August I will be 45 years old.  If I am lucky, then I am now at middle age…… half-way there…. the glass is half-full… know, an optimist.

So, Japanese stuff is HOT HOT HOT now.  and I have a bunch of it and I want to share it all with YOU.  When I say you, I mean you craftycreativeartisticfabrichoardingyarnstashingstitchingbitching bloggers.  I have faith in every single one of you…. get out your checkbooks, cash in your paypal accounts, give a little love and send me off an e-mail.  I will write each and every name down on a piece of paper, put it in my dad’s old stetson and then on my birthday I will start pulling names out…..I have enough stuff for at least 2 people, but if  I get a lot of love, then I can find stuff for even more.  So, spread the word….. let’s get this thing off the ground.

 Come over to my side of the boat, let’s see if we can tip this baby over!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    wilbur. wilbur wasn’t a quitter. though he was a pig, he tried to spin a web just like charlotte could. i had to explain the word quitter to my son last night.

    i’m going to try again too. i got confused before and maybe i confused everyone???

    email to follow, but i am going to visit a home for disabled kids off the street this friday and will make a donation that I can afford there.
    they have an excellent, personalized website so check it out!!

    What, only one comment so far for a give-away — and with such enticements as cotton Time and that bunny fabric? Sign me up (even though I’d read your blog without the enticements).

    I guess that means I can`t play in the great kimono give-away as I am in the UK? 😦 I think it is a great idea though! 🙂
