The giveaway - I was amazed everybody actually answered the question! The winner was JMF who's favorite band in High School was Creedence Clearwater Revival. I happen to be fond of some of their songs myself. Her and her husband have a small buffalo herd, how cool is that? I am envious of their chickens too, but I know I can have chickens if I want, so I should probably keep my mouth shut.

I was productive on Saturday while I had the house to myself - I pieced a back for a baby quilt, put a couple of hours into my Totally Groovy quilt, started a padded dining table cover (with NOT a lot of fabric planning ahead of time, which means it might not turn out - note to self, look for some books/articles about choosing color/print combinations) and even got some paper piecing worked on.
Two things that came out of the weekend, my lanyard from the game convention has a clip at the end, and although its not long enough to reach everything I need to use it for, I can easily release it, and it does reach my sewing machine just fine to clip things. No more having to go fetch scissors, cause even though I have 4 small pairs, I usually have left somewhere I'm not.
Secondly, my husband brought home a plushie crab monster...they were giving them away "freeze dried" vacuum packed in plastic... I'm pretty sure that its going to go sit up on a shelf in his room soon here. It has scary teeth.

My list of in progress projects is getting out of hand, and my list of projects I WANT to do...phew. I haven't started on Christmas projects yet and it's already September isn't it?
