Fat Quarter Friday for 8/29/08- Teal Floral Fabric

Here is this weeks fat quarter. Please leave me a comment this week between today and Thursday evening at 11:59pm central time. Good luck.

Here is a picture of Andrew trying to roll over. He hasn’t made it yet but he is close. I took him to the doctor yesterday. He has an ear infection and some chest congestion. They gave him some meds and gave him a breathing treatment at the office.

Here is a picture I took this morning. I can’t believe he is already four months old.

Scrappy Candle Mats

Today I finished making 7 candle mats. I had some scrappy blocks left over from my wall hanging. The candle mats are about 9 inches square.

I have been meaning to take a picture of this fabulous pillow my mother in-law Judy made for me. She makes gorgeous quilts too.

I have an appointment to take Andrew to the doctor in an hour. Poor little guy still has a cough. He was supposed to get his four month shots tomorrow but I don’t think they will still give them to him. We will see. I am very anxious to see how much he weighs. I am guessing close to 20 pounds already.

Today is the last day to comment on the Batik fat quarter that I am giving away tomorrow. Good luck and happy blogging.

189th Post

Only 11 more post to go before my 200th post. Yippee. I am going to have a give away. I think I am going to pick more than one winner. I have a few ideas in mind.

Have any of you swaps heard of www.swap-bot.com? It is a pretty neat place. You can join 5 swaps at one time. So far I have been in a 5 inch charm swap, a book mark swap, and a nine patch swap. I have received my goodies. I started two swaps. A fabric postcard swap and a 2 1/2 inch fabric strip swap. Some of the swaps are international. It is a good way to make new friends. Just thought I would share this with all my sewing friends. It’s not just for fabric. Go have a look and see.

Killen’s Founders Day 5K Run

This morning my oldest son Tyler and my husband ran in a 5k run. They did an awesome job. Tim finished in 31 minutes and Tyler finished right behind him at 31:08. I am so proud of them. This is the 3rd time my husband has run it and the second time Tyler has. Tyler finished 15 minutes faster than last time. Way to go.
