Wednesday and Friday in the same Post?Happy Wednesday. Linking up to Lee at Freshly Pieced where my blogger friend Debbie from A Quilter's Table is guest hosting. I'm also linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts finish it up Friday since I did manage to complete my Pillow -wish I'd installed a cool zipper like Amanda Jean did on hers.
Edit: I added this picture so you can see the lovely bulky white dressing on my finger and to explain why Julia looks like she's sporting a Pippi Longstocking hairdo in the photo at the end of this post thanks to the garland on the wall. SueDee's October show is appropriately themed Day of The Dead. I've also added some pillow details pics because I'm not good at leaving well enough alone - thanks for indulging.

I won't post the zipper pouch photo I made until after Sewing Summit but I'm pretty please and hope whoever gets it like it.
Same thing goes for our Quilt Retreat Swag Bag goodies partially completed this week - attendees should be surprised and that would spoil it.

a Wonderful WINI was reading the CraftBuds post announcing the Craft Book Linky Winners yesterday when all of the sudden I spotted my wristlet clutch in the mosaic. All the prizes were great but I've made a lot of my MQG seriously jealous with the FQ bundle that I have won ... V&Co.’s new collection “Simply Color". Lindsay even offered to hand deliver it to me at Sewing Summit - how great is that!!
Happy Quilting, Karen
