100th Post Giveaway!

I've had this blog for a couple of years I think, but haven't been actively posting until about the last year. It has been a lot of fun for me and serves as something of a journal. I've really enjoyed it! Now I am coming up on my 100th post which seems like a good time to do my FIRST giveaway! I don't have anything purchased yet, but hope to have something to show you by the end of the weekend. You can count on it being fabric-y! Just leave me a comment on this post and your name will be thrown in the drawing! Oh, how fun!! I'm really excited about this! Hope you spread the word too!

In the meantime, I'll show you my latest Dear Jane triangle. It is RS-10 called Grandma Nan's Bodice. It was paper and regular pieced as well as some applique and has 17 pieces. It's always good to get a triangle done!

We have a bit of demolition going on here this weekend. Next week, we are having new carpeting put in our living/dining and bedrooms. So this is our opportunity to get rid of a built in bookcase in the living room that we have not ever really liked since we moved in here. Pete has torn the case out and now I need to go patch up some spots on the wall to make it blend it. I am also going to paint the bedroom before the carpet goes in so I have no shortage of projects! Anyone want to come help???

Don't forget to leave me a comment! We'll see you soon!



  1. Congratulations on your 100th post!

  2. That is some triangle! Nice work on all those tiny pieces :-)
    Hope the flooring installation goes well. You are really packing the time full before heading back to work. All those DJ blocks show you keeping up the progress.
    Congratulations on the 100th post!

  3. Wow - 100 posts already?? Congratulations! I can't wait to see your madeline quilt. Do we get to see pictures of the new carpet, too? Are you still thinking about moving your sewing room upstairs? (Yes-- it IS the question lady.)

  4. i love seeing your dear jane blocks - wish i had the patience (and skill) to tackle them!!

  5. Hi Melanie!

    I was updating the DJ Triangle Achievers' list and was about to update your name on my list when I realized that you had a Blog.

    BONUS! You're having a give-a-way and there's only 5 of us that are trying to win these gorgeous fabrics?!?!?!??!

    Well, that just won't do! I'll have to spread your news around... even though it reduces my chances of winning! LOL

    Please add my name in your hat and I'll go forward your info to others. *grin*
