It's official...

My blog has a new home here at Mike & Gabby!  I've been planning this move for, oh, a couple of years, but I finally buckled down and did it.  My old blog had the same look for as long as I can remember.  It took a lot of work and some help from, but I like the fresh clean look of my new home.  Hopefully you do too!

Gabriel and I welcome you!!!
If you have a few minutes, take a look around.  There are some tabs at the top that explain a little bit more about who I am, my houseful of pets and my love of quilting.  Although after filling out my list of UFOs, I feel like I should be spending less time on my blog and more time in my sewing room, trying to get some of them done!

To celebrate my big move, I've planned a number of giveaways!  Although most of them are quilting related, I know that not everyone that reads my blog actually quilts, so at least one or two will take that into account.  (Disclaimer: None of the prizes are sponsored.  They're all coming out of my own pocket!)

Since Valentine's Day is just around the corner, I'm going to start with this little bundle to make a table topper/wall hanging: a charm pack of Sent with Love by Deb Strain for Moda, the Dora pattern by Me & My Sister Designs, 1/3 yard red print for the border and 1/2 yard of Bella white for the sashing.  This will make around a 28" square quilt.  All you need to add is the backing, binding and batting!

Valentine's Day Giveaway Bundle
So who's interested?  If my post office can figure out how to mail to your address, your eligible for this giveaway!  To enter, you need to do 2 things:

  1. Follow my blog.  This is a brand new blog with no followers, so you'll be one of the first!  (Hint: The follower button is over on the right hand side.)
  2. Leave a comment on this post telling me you're now a follower.
That's it!  However, if you'd like to earn one extra entry, you also welcome to blog about this giveaway on your own blog.  Just leave another comment letting me know you've done so.  Once I reach at least 10 followers and 10 comments, I'll draw a winner!  I'd like to get this prize out ASAP so the winner can work on it before Valentine's Day.  And also so I can get started on the next giveaway!

And once again, thanks for stopping by!


  1. I have followed the new blog and like the clean look!

  2. Hi Dee, I'm following your new blog now. Glad you still have a photo of Deconstructed on your About page. I love that quilt too!

    I also like that your blog encompasses your faith as well as quilting. I've been pondering how to make mine cover both.

    Thank you for hosting a giveaway. Your fabrics are cheerful and just right for Valentines Day. :)

  3. Your new look is very clean, but I'll miss your header picture.
    Thanks for the instructions on how to become a follower, I needed that!
    And thanks for the opportunity to win more fabric for my addiction!
    Take care

  4. Hi Dee, let's hope I have figured this out and you know I am following your blog - I missed you when you slowed down on your last blog!

  5. Hi Dee, I'm glad you posted about your new blog. I had no idea you had a started a new one. I just got back to blogging about a month ago and was following your old blog. It's still the one I have in my blog list. I will update that right away. I love the look of the new blog. I'm everythingquilts from the HGTV MB. I love the quilt you made for the STT challenge that's in the header of your old blog but the look of this one is great as well.

  6. Your new blog has such a nice, refreshing look to it. But I still like the old one too. I got lost looking through your finished quilts~ wow! I'm a new follower now too! Thank you for the cute giveaway~

  7. Thank you for posting about your new blog; I now subscribe in google reader to follow you. What a cute giveaway!

  8. Love the new blog. I'm now a follower of this one, too. Thanks for the chance to win the give away.

  9. I am a new follower, I am just puzzled as to why you didn't just clean up the blog you already had, instead of making a brand new one? Just wondering out loud.

  10. I always enjoyed your old blog, and now I'll enjoy your new one! Thanks for the giveaway chance.
