It's in the mail

I managed to get to the Post Office just before they closed on Saturday. I got all of the giveaway prizes on there way.

I also got the fabric out for the Spare Change Swap.

Now it is time to get started on the Winter Sassy Apron Swap.

Every one has been a little more fun and this one is no exception. I am excited about it.

We are having a rainy morning here and I love it.

At long last, the time has come to draw a winner

I decided to let the random number generator to pick the winners for me. This has been a lot of fun and I tried to get back to everyone who commented. If I haven't made it to you yet, I will soon.

The winner of the Slash Your Stash Quilt Book is Karen

The winner of the Amy Butler Fabric is Corinna

The winner of the Moda Jelly Roll is G'G'Ma

Congratulations to all of you. Please send me an e-mail with your mailing address and I will get your prize out to you.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by and left a comment with your favorite fall color. I can't possible pick one myself and wondered how many others couldn't either.

Thank you to Debi for hostessing the giveaway. She will be having a Winter Giveaway soon if you are interested, stop by and let her know.

You won't want to make this mistake any time soon

As I have mentioned before, I read a LOT of blogs. Every day. I spend my evening hours at work reading blogs for hours like they are that great new book you just can't put down. I read about cooking and cleaning and sewing and crafts and - you get the picture.
One of the blogs I read every day is A Year of Crockpotting. Stephanie has made something everyday this year in a crockpot. Some have been old stand by meals, some have been gourmet meals, there has even been melted crayons. She did it all in the crockpot. She has been on Rachel Ray. I really like reading this blog.
Last night when I started reading I saw she is giving away a crockpot. I love to use my crockpot to cook since I am rarely home, it is a good way for me to make dinner and put enough away to eat several times without cooking since it is just me to feed. The crock part of my crockpot cracked and so I decided I would enter the giveaway. Fat chance I'll win but hey I won't if I don't enter.
When I was filing out the required stuff on blogger, I checked a box about reply e-mails. I thought it meant that she would reply to that e-mail. OH NO my friends. It means that EVERY SINGLE ONE of her thousands of comments from people wanting to win the crockpot (the one I want) is coming to my inbox along with the hundreds of e-mails from the people entering my giveaway.
I told Stephanie what I did and she is still laughing about it. I bet she couldn't sleep last night laughing about it.
I'm sure glad it wasn't Pioneer Woman that I did that to...

Spare Change

Juliette at Chickpee Sewing Studios is hosting a stash swap. I have asked to be included. I love the quilt she made for her little guy using this method and have seen some others and think I could come up with something nice also. If you would like to join, just let Juliette know. This should be fun! I think I will do mine with paper pieces like this one Littleshika did or this one from Twiddletails.
