The prize is this copy of StrataVarious by Barbara Persing and Mary Hoover. It has some wonderful quilts in it. My DD ended up with the copy I gave her at Christmas and one from her brother. I'll borrow hers if I want to do any of the quilts. But, heck, I have a hundred quilts from my own books still to be made! I haven't decided if there will be a second prize or not. I'll be snooping through the studio to see if there is anything. Maybe a fat quarter or two of my hand dyed fabrics.
Here's the plan. Leave a comment on my blog. If you do not have a blog that lists a way to email you, make sure you leave your email with your comment. Let me know what your current project is -- you don't have to write a book. You'll get an additional entry if you post a link with information about the give away on your blog. The cut off will be based on the time stamp on the comment -- 11:59 pm on Wednesday, 5/6/09.
Saturday we decided to give Raggs some alone time. We left him in our bedroom which is about the only room we can close up on the ground floor. We were gone, maybe an hour. He was soooo lonely. By the time we were back he had tried to grab my pillow off the bed and in doing so he had pushed around some things on my night stand. And, of course, I had forgotten about the glass of water on the night stand which was all over the floor, a little rug, a library book, some papers, etc., etc. It wasn't all that horrible -- he didn't chew on anything. And no accident. Yea! Water mops up pretty fast. The book was a paper back....
So today, we were going to church and Raggs was going to be by himself for about 5 hours. We moved most of the stuff he could get to off my night stand. We moved the big basket off the floor. We moved the stuff off the phone table. You get the picture. Five hours later we come back. Raggs had moved his water dish from the hardwood floor on to the carpet without spilling a drop -- don't ask me how as it was a heavy bowl! But he decided to try for my pillow again but without much luck. He did pull tufts of fur off a rug I had on the floor. Oh well. But there was no other damage. And, he must have exhausted himself as he's been asleep for the last hour. Until yesterday Raggs didn't jump up on his hind legs at all -- or at least not that we had ever seen. Rescue thinks he had been hit by a car before he was found. He had surgery on his leg and hadn't been using it much. He is now using it more especially when we take him for his walks. So, the jumping up on the hind legs was a big surprise! I've got your number Mr. Ragg Man!
Time to hit the studio and sew! I have to sew the rows together on the wonky 9 patch and then decide about borders.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
