Way too many pictures

Okay, get ready...here come the photos...

I had everything ready to go Saturday morning for Pattyfair (warning: Jaxon made an attempt to get in most of the photos):

Two crib–sized sock monkey blankets SOLD!


Four baby sets from my Etsy store (Sock moneys sold -- must find more of that fabric!! -- and retro campers and cars sold).


Three new baby sets: Heather Bailey's Freshcut, Joel Dewberry's Aviary (sold), and M'liss Rae's Travel.


Sixteen new diapers and wipes cases and a few left from my Etsy store.


And a little Christmas quilt for the benefit auction. It only went for $5, but that's five more dollars to Big Brothers Big Sisters.


So that's what I took along. I also made up this for my table (you may have to click to make it out):



And these two crib quilts had to stay at home. I got them quilted and laid them out to cut minky for the backing, when I discovered I didn't have enough red or green! I'm going to try to get these done ASAP and in my Etsy store. Everything that didn't sell is currently in my Etsy store. I am having a sale beginning tomorrow, 20% off all blankets and blanket sets and free shipping on diapers and wipes cases! If you know any expecting or new parents please pass it on!

I used the opportunity to practice my machine quilting, and they aren't perfect. They'll be discounted.


And here is what I bought:

A handbag from Heidi, and a necklace and earrings from Rebecca...


...and a delicious rum cake made by Lynn that I won in the auction. No, I didn't eat half of it, I froze some for winter sustenance.


That's this year's Pattyfair! I got to socialize with friends and I think I made some good connections for possible custom orders and sales. But that's not all...there's more...

I won a giveaway at Loft Creations and received this beautifully constructed (and super soft) pillowcase from Stephanie:

This will go on Jaxon's new big boy bed come Christmas.


My first giveaway win! And it makes me feel generous, so...

1. Because I passed my 100th post...
2. ...and because it is the season of giving...
3. ...and because I've been feeling extra creative lately and Charlie has indulged me by keeping Jaxon occupied...

IT'S GIVEAWAY TIME! Yes, I'm shouting, because not only am I having a giveaway, but I am going to attempt to do THREE giveaways. Today is giveaway #1, Wednesday will be giveaway #2, and next weekend will be giveaway #3!

Giveaway #1 is a little different from the others, because it is not something that I made, but is still really cool. I made new stockings for us last year so they would all match, and that left me with our previous stockings. And it made me sad to see them tucked away, not being used. So these very cool quilty stockings can be yours, along with a cute quilty Santa bell ornament.

Forest green and red velvet with a satin cuff and an evening star quilt block. I bought these at Hold Everything back before they went out of business.


Rules for giveaway #1: One comment gets you one entry. One comment per person, please. If you post about the giveaway on your blog you get another entry (please let me know in the comments). Entries are allowed until Noon EST on Wednesday, Dec. 10 when the next giveaway goes live. Please make sure I have a way to contact you!

Fun! I'm so glad for my bloggy friends!

Edited to add: I've been feeling kind of lame about the lack of handmade goodness in giveaway #1, and the lack of comments (except Jenifer, who like a good sister comments on every post) so I am adding a brand new charm pack of Merry and Bright by Sandy Gervais and some Christmas-y vintage buttons from the collection of my great grandma. Happy Holidays!

Good on you for your sales. It has been a highly productive year for you!

Congrats on your sales and on your 100th post!!

Thanks for your support about Mac! She's wireless presently but we plan to have her attached via a cord to the modum when she migrates to the basement to my office/craft room.

Are your laptops wireless or via cord?

Ooooh, I just noticed the comments on the bottom of this post about the vintage buttons. Ohhh, vintage buttons....

Sorry you missed give-away day - it was a blast - but how nice of you to still participate. What a fun blog you have. Your little guy sure is cute.
