U.S.A., New Tattoo and Giveaway!!

Soooooo, we have a WINNER!!!

Congrats to #15 GCCMOM!!!! Yea!!!! Please send me a pic of the finished purse, I would love to see what fabrics you will use!!

Now, onto the surprise gift!
Yes there is a second drawing for my most favorite notion ever!! The The Seam-Fix Seam Ripper

I absolutely love this tool, you will never have to use tweezers to seam rip again! The rubber ends were made to rub out the little pieces of thread.... why didn't I think of that?
The Lucky second winner is......

 Giddy99!!! Yea!!

Congrats to you both and thank you all for joining in, I appreciate all the comments!!!  

GCCMOM and Giddy I will contact you through email!

 Sooooo, I am ashamed that I have not been by in a while, but its been a mad house up in here! Lots going on with life and work. All good things though.
First off I got to make an awesome auction quilt for a good friend, and I loved every minute of making this one. It involves two of my favorite things, the U.S.A. and batik fabrics......

 Unfortunatly, I did not get a chance to take a final picture, but it was beautiful if I must say so myself ;)

Next on the blog agenda is........
My New Tattoo!!!
I wanted to have a wrist tattoo of something I absolutely love, quilting!!! 
So I choose this Sawtooth Star pattern, just love it. The quilt square may look a little familiar, It is from In Color Orders BOM. This star embodies modern and traditional all in one. That makes me very happy.

Well, lastly, the GIVEAWAY!!! For some reasons I look at a purse pattern and go completely stupid. I have a hard time grasping the whole purse making thing. But I do know you guys out there are totally awesome at making them. So, I am giving away an adorable purse pattern!!!
Yea!! The pattern is from Bella Nonna! The pattern is Pattern No. 159, the Boutique Shoulder Bag...... Super Cute!!
There is also a surprise gift with that Giveaway!!!! 

All you have to do is leave me a comment. Winner will be chosen randomly by Random.Org on Thursday September 13th by 9pm.
Good Luck and thank you for stopping by!!!
