Design Wall Monday and the Winner!

 Another week has gone by and I haven't gotten much time to sew.  I'm still cutting the little, bitty pieces for my Fireweed applique.  This was a kit that the Boss brought back for me from his trip to Alaska last November.  I decided that it had waited long enough, now that he's just returned from THIS year's trip to Alaska.  One of these years I'll get to go with him!


My big accomplishment was getting the center done and the last few petals, leaves and centers appliqued onto my Aunt Millie's Garden quilt block.  I used Karen Kay Buckley's Perfect Circles to make the centers and I highly recommend them!

Sadly, my Phillies lost on Friday night, which ended their playoff run.  I've never seen such a quiet crowd leaving the stadium as I did Friday...it was a long walk back to the parking lot!  


And now Daisy (who thinks she's a cat) and Ellen will pick the winner of the drawing for The Devil's Puzzle by Clare O'Donohue.  I finished reading the book this weekend and really enjoyed it.  I'll have a review some time this week...as soon as I get a chance to sit down and organize my thoughts!  I asked Ellen to pick a number and the number is...3.  So that means Jane from Imperfect Quilter is our winner!  Jane, I'll be emailing you shortly to get your address!

Sorry about your Phillies! I love your block -- especially the pop of pink with the green. I LOVE KKB's Perfect Circles -- they're SO cool!
