Now all the fun is over I must get back to sewing.  I haven't touched my SBS for 2 weeks and that doesn't happen very often.  Before that though I want to make some christmas coasters.  I received one from a friend and now want to make some more to go with it.  So away from the computer and back to the sewing machine, although I have enjoyed reading everyone's interesting blogs this past week.


*********And the winners are **********

100 charms are going to Denmark to Maria

Xmas panel is going to Sandy in New South Wales,  Australia

All the above two ladies need to do is let me know their snail mail addys and their packages will be in their way. 
This has been great fun

I am completely overwhelmed by the number of comments I have received for the 'giveaway'.  I must rethink how I will make a selection.  My idea now is to select all the ideas then as I don't have an automatic selector on my computer I will put all names in a hat and get my granddaughter to draw one out.  There seems to be a bit of a trend in what quilters are making at the moment, eg. disappearing nine patch and twisters seem to be the most popular.  I have made a disappearing nine patch so know what that is but I am not familiar with the twister.  I have a little square ruler that I purchased at a show which I haven't used yet and I'm wondering if this is what you use.  What I have is called a 'Pinwheel Magic' but it seems by reading the instructions you join diffeent squares together then cut the centre out of where they are joined then then turn it around, is this what you call a 'twister'./

Additional Giveaway

I have decided to add a little something to my giveaway.  With christmas just around the corner, the winner will also receive a beautiful christmas panel kit, which includes the panel and backing and binding fabric.  My winner will still be my favorite use of charms.
