Giveaway Winner!

Before I make my big announcement, first an update on things here . . . Since I refurbished my old sewing table with this great red paint, I've been a little worried about the sewing machine scratching the new paint. I decided to make a large mug rug of sorts, or a sewing machine placemat. I wanted it to fit in with the sewing machine cover and the pincushion I had made, so to continue the paper piecing I started with the cover, I used Charise Creates' fabulous pattern for a sewing machine. I just fell in love with her design when I first saw it on her blog, and I was thrilled that shared the pattern. Although I love the full design of Charise's, which includes an ironing board and dress mannequin, I kept it simple with only a sewing machine.

This is the first time I've used someone else's pattern for paper piecing, and it was a challenge, but if I can do it . . .  anyone can!

Now, onto the big announcement . . . the big winner of a copy of Springtime in the Rockies is, by random draw, #23: Joan and Kevin. Congratulations!! I don't have your email address, so can you send me an email at with your snail mail address, and then the book will be on its way to you!
