Day 25 - Working Wednesday...

Let's Celebrate! Today is the last day of The First 25 Days of 2012...so today is also my Birthday! It's my 32nd and it's been an interesting year... last year on my birthday I made my first comment on a blog (to the talented ladies at Sweetwater) to enter a giveaway. Less than two months later, March 17, 2011, I started blogging!

Before we get into more celebratory activities, I'm going to show you my WIP. Lee at freshly pieced is graciously hosting the weekly WIP Wednesday, so here's my new project...

Skirts for the girls (and me)...
I have the girls' cut out, just need to put them together...mine needs cut out still (it will take a little more work than the girls'. They're from flannel I got on sale on Black Friday...and were to be for Christmas. Oh well, better late than never :)

** UPDATE: I was able to get Amber's skirt sewn together today...very cute! Working on Liz's and mine tomorrow.

I also did a little...very little...work on Liz's quilt. Ok, so I didn't actually touch the quilt, but I was trying to make my template for the flower...
It's to go on each of the pieced postage stamp blocks. My first attempt to start cutting it out wasn't working, so I think I'm going to thicken the lines and reprint...try again. I really would like to have her Christmas quilt done by her birthday...in March :)

So, this weeks work progress...

New Projects: 1 [skirts]
Completed Projects: a bunch of little ones covered in other posts
Continuing Projects: 4 [Skirts, Liz's Sashed Postage Stamp Quilt, the Table Topper, and 'the lost' Quiet book]

I also hope to get back to the Quiet book for Liz, but we'll see, because the Curves Class starts a week from today...I can't wait!

Ok...so lets CELEBRATE some more! My first blog comment was to enter a giveaway...and I've entered quite a few more over the past year, and have yet to win one! However, I have not yet had my own giveaway...so without further ado, I'm hosting my FIRST giveaway!

Here is what you could win...

A New Wave mug rug/potholder, a matching Mini Clutch, and a collection of fabrics that range in size from fat 16th's to fat 8th's.

Now to the logistics of a giveaway...

Anyone may enter!

First chance to enter is to just leave a comment on this post or on my Facebook page (under the status regarding this giveaway).
