Lucky Friday 13th...

No bad luck around here is someone's lucky day.  While at Quilt Market last fall I ran into these two nuts..

Barb & Mary of
if y'all think I'm crazy...they have me beat!

These two sisters know how to rock a booth...

okay...all at one time...STINKIN' CUTE...don'tcha think?

They have the best imagination when it comes to displays...seriously who would have come up with a light fixture like this?  Fake grass from Ikea, tin flashing and who knows what else they used...but so stinkin' cute.

Now to the "lucky" part of today....
Barb and Mary gave me two patterns to giveaway...
so here goes....
First up....

Olivia Bag, a fun, flirty and fabulous bag!


Simply Cakes, 3 fast, fun and easy quilts!

Y'all know how this works, leave me a message and I'll draw first thing tomorrow morning...
Two winners will be selected...

Good Luck...
until next time...
Be Kind....

  10. Happy Friday 13Th!! I love their fabric and patterns,so thanks for the chance to win.

  11. Love them both, especially the simply cakes quilts!!

  12. Want. Take pity on this poor PA GRRL?

  13. Been doing taxes today instead of quilting! :( I've never met the ladies, but do love their patterns. Either prize would be great! With a grandson turning 2, I'm always looking for new patterns to make him a quick quilt. Our local government has instituted a 'bag tax' so we pay 5-cents for every store bag, so I'm always looking for a cute bag to carry when shopping. Thanks for the give away!

  14. I love the simply cake quilts ! Hope I get lucky on the 13 th !

  15. maybe for once I'll get lucky ;-))) I love cakes…

  16. I love the "Me and My Sisters" designs..... I really wanted this pattern, too!!! And I love the handbag pattern!!! Thanks for sharing!

  17. So cute! It's been a rotten day so I could use a little happiness! My computer is acting up since the Microsoft update on Tuesday, the A/C in the van just crapped out and it appears someone charged $51 on my credit card from LUXEMBOURG (sp) and the bank says I have to call during regular business hours.

  18. Kelly, I love the quilt pattern. They look simple enough for me to do!! I hope I am the lucky one..Becky

  19. Oh sew cute! I love the quilt patterns. Keeping my fingers crossed for good luck!

You see, Jimmy had always been a part of my life, at 57 I didn't know a life without having this older brother that I looked up to. We had lost our other brother, Karl, in 1984 in a car accident. When there were three, we were down to I am just one.
