Hello Everyone,

I hope that everyone has had a terrific week! I have, this is the first week that I feel we have had some "summer" weather. I am so happy, I live for the heat. Apparently, my flowers do too. I can't believe I actually have these flowers growing in my garden.

This is the first year that I planted them and they are gorgeous! I just love the colors.

Don't you just love them? I can't remember, but I think they are Dahlias. Do any of you know for sure?

On another note, I recently won a giveaway on Kim's blog and received these wonderful little goodies. The bag is soooo cute and, of course, also has flowers on it. She included a 1930's repro fat quarter (which I love!!) and 2 bars of truffles and a popcorn corn on the cob.

What is in the picture is what is left. I couldn't wait to eat the goodies. I savored the Utah Chocolate Raspberry Truffle (a favorite) and ate the popcorn promptly! I couldn't help myself... YUM! Thanks so much, Kim!

Even with the sun out this week, I did manage to get some sewing in and added some new things to my Etsy shop.

But the big news is that I posted my 4th Podcast episode. It is available here and also on iTunes. This Podcast is all about batting... the different kinds available, how to choose what is right for you quilting project, and terminology that you might often hear. If you subscribe to my Podcast through iTunes, would you mind taking the time to leave a review there. I would greatly appreciate it. I hope you enjoy this one. I am having lots of fun doing them!!

Also, my monthly E-newsletter has gone out and is also available here for you to read.

Well I am off to enjoy the sunny weekend here! It is going to be a perfect 2 days.... 0% chance of rain. Yahoo!!

Edit: I forgot to mention 2 spectacular giveaways...

Go check them out!

Until Next Time....
