September's Winner is.......

Mrsmarg is the winner of September's prize which is the Vintage Lifestyle book.  Congrats Margaret, random number generator has picked you!

Now for October's prize.  I was amazed at the number of pictures posted on our Flickr group. Ninety eight pictures for September.  Woohoo!  You women amaze me.  One prize just doesn't seem like enough.  For October I will be offering two prizes to be drawn randomly from all the pictures posted to our group.

The first prize is Nancy Halverson's latest book and pattern.  You will just have enough time to make something for this Christmas.  The second prize is a Hoffman Bali Pop called Caramel. Mmmmmm good.

This block from our Flickr group really impressed me.

Betty really mixed things up, went her own way, and came up with this stunning block.  I will have a little something special coming Betty's way!


  1. Congrats Margaret! Great prizes Linda!
    I loved Betty's interpretation of this block. Unlike all the other blocks posted which feature the geese, Netty's features the centre star complimented by the geese. Wonderful Betty!

  2. Congratulations to Margaret and thank you for hosting. Oh, that is a stunning variation of the circle geese block!
