Table Topper Blog Hop! and for me... It Is All In The Kiss!

I want to thank Madame Samm for allowing me to participate, even with my inability to remember things this past couple of months!  I almost let this slip by but Samm threw me a life jacket! I truly appreciated the reminder email because I so enjoy participating in all of the things she dreams up for all of us bloggers!

You can go HERE to view all of the table toppers that have already been posted but I highly recommend using the list of links as well and go visit all of these quilters on their blogs!  You never know what you will find... might even find a new friend! :)

Would you like to see what I have made for the  

Yes???  Well, ok.. if you insist!

I have been in the notion of making this mini quilt for my hubby for a long while and when Madame Samm posted this blog hop I knew it would be the time to get this in a finished state! Our bedroom is decorated in a romantic theme and this fits in perfectly!  I put it on the Ackfeldwire Quilt Stand and placed it on the corner of our dresser.  Then I called my hubby in to see what I made.  Of course, he had to give me a kiss or two or three right then! ha!

 I had purchased some fusible batting a while back just to try so I got it out when it came time to put the backing on the quilt. A lot of quilters have raved about fusible batting but I am not sold.  I think I prefer regular batting to this.  In all honesty I will give it 5 stars on one point.. My mini quilt is really straight and does not do the dog ears dance on the corners.  I do like that about it.  I might keep some around just for mini quilts.  We shall see.

I also found a super use for double edge finished 1/2" wide silk ribbon!  It makes for an awesome sleeve for small projects such as this!

This is the batting I used.

As I studied over the finished mini quilt, I see some things I would do differently if I remade another one.  The stem on the rose is a little fat and my embroidery needs some fine tuning.  I really need some embroidery lessons from a pro!  And I might just use regular batting if I were to remake it.. We shall see...

I wanted to show you something that was posted on my blog about 2 years ago.  My friend Martha does my cross stitching for me since my eyes will no longer allow me to.  This piece was entitled "The Kiss" and it hangs over our bed!  Martha does impeccable work!

 I am not the only blogger on today's road show for the table topper hop!  Please make sure to go and visit these other quilters to see what they have created for today!

And if you did not see my other post listing the quilters who were on the hop since April 16th then here it is again so you can go and visit all of them!

Some, but not all,  of these bloggers have giveaways tied to their post and there may be a few who have not chosen a winner yet so get to hopping and go see what is up for grabs!

For me... I think I am going to give away this mini quilt so that it will spur me to remake it all over again!  And I won't let it take me so long to do another one this time around!

Sorry, the stand is not part of the giveaway.

If you would like a chance to own the mini I have shown above, please leave me a comment!

And thank you, Madame Samm, for another fun and fabulous bloggers extravaganza!!

We Have Winners!!

I want to thank each and every one of you who came out during the celebratory giveaway and commented to let me know how you like the look of my new and updated website, and left a comment to be entered to win one of the boxes of laces and other goodies!

I had friends come from far and near and I really enjoyed seeing where you all are from! 

USA Friends!
Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi,  Missouri, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania,  South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin

International Friends!
Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, Netherlands, Ireland, Malaysia, Israel, Australia, Switzerland, Brazil

And there were several who didn't say where they were from and their location wasn't in their profiles but know where-ever you are from, I count you my friend!!

And that brings me to one more tid-bit of information for this giveaway!

Not only will there be 2 boxes given away ... but I have now added a 3rd box for those people who I do not know where you are from! I did not make entering your location a requirement of the giveaway so I feel like I should have a 3rd category so you all have a fair chance of winning!  If I put one of you in the International list and you wound up being from the USA and your number was chosen to win, it would knock an International friend out of her winnings and vice versa.. So, since I don't know where to put you.. there is a 3rd category!

Does that make you smile?? :)

It should!!

SO!! On with the winners!!

USA Winner!! (Claimed!)
From Ohio!

International Winner!! (Claimed!)
From Ireland!

3rd Winner!! (Claimed!)
From California!
 Jennifer Cheek-Payan !!

I will send each of these winners an email as soon as I post this! If either of them fail to reply to the email within 5 days, I will draw another winner!

I hope that you all will periodically browse my website to see what has been added new since your last visit!  I am in hopes of stocking many more different items to keep the site full of interesting finds to keep you coming back, time and time again!  If you are ever in search of something that you simply are having a terrible time finding, shoot me an email and I will see if I can locate it for you!

Now, get those needles humming!

Happy Stitching!

I Am Back and With A Fabulous Giveaway!

The giveaway is closed as of 9:05 am!
I will be announcing the winner this afternoon after I take my mother-in-law and her 2 sisters into town for a fun girls day out!

YEP! It has been a month since I have posted!! But I have a good excuse! I have been VERY busy with a few things and one most important thing was revamping my website!!  
I wanted to have this posted earlier today but my internet carrier decided otherwise! grrr

I have had a website for a few years that was dedicated to my longarm quilting studio.  With a few health problems (nothing serious), I have been unable to quilt like I would like to. So I have been pondering over moving in a new direction.  I made the decision to invest in crazy quilting supplies to offer on my website and I have been busy over the last month putting a brand new face to the site and stocking the shelves!!

And a  face lift warrants a brand new name!!

This blog post and giveaway is in celebration of a Re-Grand Opening of my website...

Crazy Quilting is a full service crazy quilting supply shop bringing you various supplies such as venise lace, venise lace motifs, silk ribbon, vintage buttons, charms, fancy fabrics, threads, reclaimed jewelry bits, brooches, costume jewelry,  button storage for all of those beautiful vintage buttons, Czech glass buttons, Beaded Cabachons, trims and so much more! 

You will just have to come over to the shop to see all of the goodies available! And over the next month, I will be uploading even more goodies so keep checking back because you never know what you might find!!

And just so you know... There is free shipping for all orders over 100.00 for my USA friends and 1/2 price shipping for orders over 100.00 for my International friends!

To celebrate I am giving away 2 beautiful boxes FULL of laces, charms, buttons, embellishments and thread!

1 box for a USA friend!
1 box for an International friend! 

Both boxes are identical!! They are full to the rim with goodies that will make any crazy quilter squeal with delight!!!
Please grab the code off of my right sidebar and place my button on your websites and/or blogs to help me spread the word about my new site! I would truly appreciate it!

Please leave a comment here on the blog in order to sign up for the giveaway telling me what you think about my website... what you like about it, what you don't like about it, what you would like to see available in the future...! 

You MUST leave your email in the comment if you do not have it in your google profile. If I do not have an email to contact you with, your entry will have to be voided. I need a way of contacting the winners.

Good luck everyone!!

Giveaway ends when I get up on Friday morning - 4/20/12 - after I have my oatmeal!

Just so you know.. 
I will still be quilting but not on a full time basis.  
I will be quilting for a small number of clientele who make show quilts because as most of you know quilting for show makes me the happiest!
There is a link to the quilting studio at the bottom of the home page of the website.

All Set And Ready To Go!

I have been sneaking a half hour here and a half hour there to crazy quilt but I am SO ready to dive back in and stitch for as long as I want whenever I want! I have been so busy getting my website stocked for the re-grand opening that it has consumed almost all of my time! I am also working on some longarm quilting for clients and one important show quilt for a friend so the crazy quilting has gone wanting..

Today I took the time to reorganize my crazy quilting closet! It had become a wreck but there was no time to devote to getting back in shape! Today I just had this overwhelming urge to get in there and get er' done and that is exactly what I did!  Well it is now ready to go full speed ahead once and again and so am I!!  

I need a serious CQ fix!! Not just a half hour or so!

I wanted to share my crazy quilting space with all of you and hope to inspire some of you to get your spaces organized, if they aren't.  You can work so much better when you can find what you are hunting... 
Just ask me how I know. :)

I am in a couple of block swaps with other ladies and will be hopefully finishing blocks for 3 ladies this week if I can squeeze all 3 in with the longarm quilting I am doing. Maureen, Cathy and Connie have sent blocks my way and I will be returning them a block from me.  Once they receive their blocks, I will show photos of what I received and what I sent out.... so stay tuned..

For now enjoy the eye candy of my crazy quilting closet! I can't wait to drag out my table and sit down right in front of that closet and stitch!

My flowers, butterflies, Czech buttons and other goodies!

Tons of beads!!

Books and buttons and more embellishments!

Lace and lace motifs!

 Finished pieces and unfinished pieces! Oh yeah, more beads!

Floss and threads!

Linens, rickrack and ribbon!

Riversilks and Thread Art ribbon! and lotsa buttons and charms!

Some of my quilts!

By the way...

Have you seen the post for the giveaway I am hosting??


Well then.. Go HERE and check it out! :)

I LOVE A Good Swap Party! - March Linky Party 2012!

Thank you all for being patient through February as we let the Crazy Quilters have center stage!

It is now March 1st and time to start a new I Love A Good Swap party linky party!!

***For those without blogs.....If you don't have a blog, send me your story with photos and you can still play too! Use the Contact Me button on the right sidebar of my blog. ***
Don't want to leave anyone out!

Remember... Your UFO that you work on has to be SWAP related.  That is the main objective behind these challenges are for us to get in our drawers and pull out those items we have swapped via online forums or within quilting circles around our hometown.  These blocks or items have stories to tell and we want to know the story behind the swap when you show your finished piece.

Let's refresh ourselves to the rules:

Are you all ready to start digging out those blocks that you have stored away from swaps that you have participated in over the years and get them finished into usable items like quilts, pillows, tablerunners... etc...

If you answered YES!, then this linky party is for YOU!



I will host this linky party on the 1st day of each month for 2012 and it will run for the ENTIRE month each time!

How many of us have several stacks of blocks in a drawer that are the result of some fabulous block swaps that we have participated in over the past few years?? I know my hand is WAY up high in the air! I may have close to a dozen or so quilts waiting to be made from blocks I received from swaps that I was in. I am a swapaholic and I hostess quiet a few swaps myself! I am addicted!!

So I got to thinking how cool it would be to have a linky party so we all could show off those blocks as we finish them up in to quilts or other items such as table runners, pillows, journal covers, wall art, etccc....!

It doesn't matter what size the quilt is. And those blocks do not have to go in to a quilt...... any finished object with your UFO blocks will be awesome.. Pillows, framed blocks to hang on the wall, journal covers, stuffed animals, ornaments, tablerunners... Anything you want to use your UFO blocks for. .. The sky is the limit....The main thing here is getting those blocks out of those drawers and do something with them!

Your quilt {or other creation} does not have to be completely finished in order to link up ... BUT... there will be prizes.... and your quilt {or other creation} WILL need to be completely finished to be eligible for the prizes!!
Remember, it has to be a finished item if you want to be eligible for prizes. The photos you submit would need to cover the item fully to show it is completely finished.

Anytime during the month of March, and before 11:59 pm {Pacific time} on March 31 , you will need to create a post on your blog telling the storyline of that particular swap and how your quilt {or other creation} came to be. Insert a clickable link to the quilting site, forum, group, or blog where you participated in the swap if it was online. If not tell a little bit about the group you participated with in the making of the blocks. One of the things to put in your story would be how many states are represented in your quilt {or other creation} ... Isn't it fabulous the stories our swap quilts {and creations} tell???

You do not have to wait until you finish your UFO to create a blog post and link up here.  Go ahead and create your post as soon as you know what swap item you are going to work with.  Upload photos of the swap item and then once you are finished, you can go in and update your blog post to show the finished photos.  that way all readers can come and visit you all month!

AND... please be kind and leave a clickable link in your post back here to my blog. That way your friends can come and play too! Thanks so much!

Again.... Your quilt {or other creation} does not have to be completely finished in order to link up ... BUT... there will be prizes.... and your quilt {or other creation} WILL need to be completely finished to be eligible for the prizes!! I am working on the prizes now but you can be assured, they will be really cool!

In order for me to be able to tell who finished their quilts {or other creation} to ascertain who is eligible for the prize, each month your blog post should include at least 3 photos of that particular swap quilt {or other creation}. One full photo of the quilt {or other creation} , a close up of the quilting and binding of quilts and close ups of your other creations showing finished details. Before any prizes are awarded, I will visit every blog who has linked up to see who is eligible to be put in the drawing for the prizes for each given month.

And as I said... You do not have to finish your quilt {or other creation} in order to link up... only if you want to be eligible for the prizes! So do not stress where stress is unnecessary! One month you may link up with an unfinished quilt {or other creation} and the next you may have found time to finish one!

Just have fun!! That is what quilting and crafting should be! FUN!!

I will host this linky party on the 1st day of each month and it will run for the ENTIRE month! This will give everyone a chance to play if they don't find the linky party right away! A prize for that month will be awarded on the 3rd day of the following month to one lucky person from all eligible entries!

I have a button on the sidebar of my blog so please feel free to grab it and put it on your sidebars to get the word out! Who knows, there might just be a special prize each month to someone who has helped me advertise the linky party. Post on your blog about it, tell your friends, tell your guild... tell everyone!
 GRAB that button! I would really appreciate it!

NOW - If you have your own blog post ready, go click on the title, grab the URL link in your browser, and come and link up and join the fun!
