Playing Catch Up...and a Giveaway!

Sorry I've been an AWOL blogger.  I'm fighting off bronchitis, and, frankly, all I've wanted to do is sleep when I've not been working.

Needless to say, not much quilting has been going on here.  When I've been crafty, it's been an ADHD kind of crafty, switching gears every 20 minutes.  Yesterday, I started my Dr. Who sampler, knitted while watching Dr. Who and hand quilted one block (yup, just one tiny block) on the Tula City Sampler that I basted last week.  Not sure how much more is going to get done this last month of my FAL quarter.  Lots in being worked on, but lots sitting partly done.

I *HAVE* finished a bunch, but I haven't posted it here.  I've mostly been living on Instagram.  Here are some that didn't make it here before....

Expect to see some new projects in progress, as I gave in to two swaps on IG.  #makeadalekmakeafriend and I'm in Kay's group from the #igminiswap.
I also treated myself to the Angled Camp from Rachel over at Stitched in Color.
Her classes are fab.

Which brings me to the Giveaway!  As you know, dear readers (reader?), I like to pattern test.  I pattern tested for the awesome Jess at The Elven Garden.

Here's my version of her Roundabout quilt.  (I did a mini version that was given away for the #schnitzelandboomini exchange over on IG.)

Schnitzel&Boo mini!

She's letting me give away a copy of her pattern!

I'll randomly pick someone Friday, Sept 19 at 8pm.  No massive hoop jumping.  Just leave me a comment telling me a book I should read or something that makes you happy.  If you don't win or can't wait, her pattern is available in her craftsy site.
