Progress (or lack of)

I’m up to the ribbing on my sock! But, I don’t have time right now to work on it. I need to do the next round on the RRBloggers round robin so that I could mail it on time. It still bothers me that we can’t share photos of progress, but those are the rules. Most of the members want it to be a surprise.

Last week I received my winnings from Susan Purney Mark’s little contest that she had on her blog. Here is the crisp looking fat quarter that Susan sent me. Thank you, Susan!

And now you can check out some of the giveaways I’ve entered recently.

Regena, of Quilt N Quilt Things, is offering a huge giveaway to celebrate her one year blog anniversary AND her 100th post. But, hurry, you have until tomorrow night to enter! Even the quilt in the background of the photo is included!

Heather, of Trends and Traditions, is also celebrating her first blog anniversary with a giveaway. Three different prizes with the first and second being whole quilts! You have three different ways to enter.

Bonnie, of Calamity Jane’s Cottage, is celebrating becoming a rep for Superior’s Texture Magic and is giving away some Texture Magic, Moda Fabrics, magazines and patterns. She will be announcing the winner on September 3, in time for her birthday!

Have fun!

Sock progress

My slow progress on the socks is keeping me from working on any of my other projects. I really have to get back to the redwork baby quilt, while my granddaughter is still a baby. So, here’s the sock, so far.

Did you really think I was going to show you a side view of the sock? Maybe the second one, if it will look any better than this one. I just hope I don’t come down with Second Sock Syndrome!

Rachel Griffith, on her P.S. I Quilt blog, is giving away a $50. gift certificate to The Quilt Shoppe. There are five different ways to enter. She’s announcing the winner on Sunday the 23rd. Check it out.

Good luck,

I didn’t get enough done on my sock this week to take another photo. When I finish turning the heel, I’ll take a photo and post it.

In the meantime, here ‘s another giveaway for you to enter:

Jenny from Elefantz is giving away a vintage reproduction tin filled with a wonderful selection of some of her goodies. Here’s her giveaway post.

Have a great weekend,
