Anyway, onto the goodies...
I did use random.org, but I don't know how to do a screen capture, so bear with me...
GIVEAWAY 1: IT'S A HOOT CHARM PACK
goes to: MaryAnne who is a long-time follower and LOVES peach cobbler which I also share a soft spot for!
GIVEAWAY 2: $25 GIFT CERTIFICATE TO CONNECTINGTHREADS.COM

**Edited to add, Gayle, you are a no-reply blogger! Please email me so I can get you your prize!**
I wish I had a little money tree in the back yard so that I could get something special for each of you who entered. It warmed my heart to see so many emails in my inbox! I was just hoping a few people would enter. I'm blown away by the response. Of course, if I had a money tree in the backyard, I'd need a bigger sewing room to store all my stash too!!!
I was surpised to see how many of you LOVE apple crisp or crumble. But, all of the goodies you mentioned sounded so good. I'm going to have to start running a few more days a week to be able to try them all this fall. Mindy said she had a DELICIOUS recipe for apple crisp, and she was right. We made it Saturday night and both kids asked for seconds!
I also spent some time this weekend getting my Fall Pops top quilted. I decided on a loopy free motion because I haven't FMQed in a LONG time and never on my new machine (which I got in January, so that tells you something...) I'm having some tension issues causing the top thread to break and would welcome any suggestions on that front, but otherwise, it's coming back to me. I'm very rusty and my loops are nowhere near perfect, but it's not so bad. Chris says it looks good, and as I told my friend Debbie, a imperfect quilt on our couch to cuddle with is better than a quilt top waiting for perfection in my WIP basket, right? I"m halfway through...Emma's already called dibs on who gets to snuggle in it first. Ahhh, just another reason I love quilting!
