Giveaway 2

Since my first giveaway was only for residents of the USA,because of the shipping cost,I decided to have another smaller one that all you lovely international bloggers can enter too :)  Didn't want you to feel left out!  So.........

How about a FQ of herb fabric by Debbie Mumm for Joanns,the second FQ is by David Textiles also for Joanns.  The second fabric has kitchen utensils and recipes on it.  Also included is Java break pattern 3997 from Aunt Martha.

Since this giveaway is open to both US and International bloggers I am giving away a second set of the FQ's and another Aunt Martha hot iron transfer,the second one is New Monograms pattern 3739.  One winner will be International,one will be from the US.

I will toss in a few random skeins of DMC floss with each package too!

For a chance to win these goodies leave a comment telling me what your favorite summer pastime is.  Mine is camping :)

Three finishes!!!

Even tho Saturday was spent at the quilt guild,this was still a very good sewing weekend :)  All my May blocks are done,the last two will be on their way to the bee queen in the next couple of days.  On to my Three Finishes....
Here is Jaxin's finished quilt.  I am loving the one block that is outlined in bright red!  Since there was so much black it needed something to make it pop,and the red did the trick :)
All three baby quilts.  The one in the front is for little Gracie,then Jaxin's,and the folded quilt with the X is  baby Matty's :+)  All three are backed with fleece,because I wanted to use only fabric and batting from my stash.  Since I didn't have any/enough batting for all three,and I also wanted the backs to be soft for the babies fleece was the perfect backing!
Be sure to come back tomorrow evening for my contribution to the May Giveaway Day!!!  Thank goodness the last of the goodies arrived in my mail box on Friday afternoon.

Not much going on around here this evening.  I have been running around like a chicken with it's head chopped off at work the last couple of weeks.  So have not felt like doing much in the evenings lately.

Instead of sewing I have been spending some time  a Lot of time on pinterest!  Which is good and also not so good.

I have come across some great ideas for what to make/giveaway for the May Day Giveaway!  Over at
Sew Mama Sew

Are you planning on participating,either by hosting a giveaway or by trying your luck at winning??
I am planning on both!

So,any thoughts on what I should giveaway here on my little blog?  Ideas are running around in my head,but I would love to hear what you guys/gals think!

mason/canning jar bird feeder tutorial

Tomorrow is Giveaway Day!
click here to go to my giveaway post!
Be sure to visit Sew Mama Sew's blog
for the list of all the giveaways :)

Here is the mason/canning jar you will need for this project.

This chick feeder is what you will need for the base of your
bird feeder.  You can find these at your local Home & Ranch,
or Feed Store. (not sure what the actual name of it is tho)

Mr. P is drilling the hole in the center bottom
of the mason jar.  You will need a 5/16" Carbide
Tipped drill bit,for glass,tile & ceramics.
You will also need a 3/16x2 eye bolt, used to
attach the plate to the jar.

Mr. P drilling the hole in the bottom of the glass
I found this pretty plate yesterday at a yard sale!
You don't need any specific size plate.  Just one that
catches your eye :)  yard Sales and Thrift stores are
great places to look!  You might also find something
in your own cupboard that you no longer use.

The last things you will need are bird seed, and some
type of hanger.  We used an old piece of small link chain.
You could use plastic coated wire (like what is used for clothes
line) or string or twine.
To fill your bird feeder with seed, turn the jar upside down
and remove the chick feeder base.  Pour in the bird seed,
then re-attach the chick feeder and quickly turn right side up.

Here are my two new bird feeders in our little apple tree!
Now if Mr. Squirrel will stay out, Ha Ha!
I am hoping that the plate will help keep him out :)
