Winners Announced,Color Fix, Fabric and more!

My Book Give-Away Winner Announced!!!
How exciting is this??? Last week I was featured as a guest blogger on Quilting Gallery and I had a book give away, not one but two books. All that was needed was for someone to post a comment on how many scissors and pincushions I owned. As promised, today is March 1st, the day to post the pics of the scissors and pin cushions and announce my winners!

The answer is 45 pairs of scissors
and the winner is
Sherelyn Nichol of Houston, TX who will receive an autographed copy of my book "Quilted Fairie Tales"

The answer is 24 Pin Cushions, bet ya thought I had more! The winner is a TIE....can ya believe it? Each guessed 27. It is a tie between Carolyn Howland and Donelly Barber. WOW! So my tie breaker question is: What time of the day was I born? The closest guess will receive an autographed copy of my book "Bended Bias to Applique" .

Creative Prompt Doodle
Check it out and come join us at Jaye's blog or click on the COW link on my sidebar!!!

My Doodle for the word "Excitement", well I chose to use the word "excited"

Once I doodled out my word for excited, I couldn't stop. It was as if the sharpie black marker took over and before I knew it I had this comical girl drawn. I always drew real life figures, but I wanted to experiment and do something different. This time I used my colored pencil instead of water colors like I used in my last doodle of the tree. It makes me so happy to use colors. Colors make me thrive and be creative!

I had to share my most favorite fabrics "of the moment"....YUM YUM YUM!!!They are so different, but I love them equally. I wonder what I will make with them....hmmmm. The flower and leaf fabric on the left is "The Lindsey Collection" by Karen Montgomery for Timeless Treasures Fabrics.The stripey and fish fabrics are fat quarters and the name idn't on the selvage. If you know the name....PLEASE let me know!

HOW COOL IS THIS? On my midnight quests perusing the internet, I came across this
Laptop Pillow by IF. Check it out!

And as always.....

Your doodles are fantastic! I love the doll. Her eyes look like a doll I used to have - Blythe doll??

I love the people in the top doodle as well. They look so happy, yet are so simple. I might be inspired by them! ;-)

Ok I found this spot to post, so here goes, first off, I am amazed I was even close. Second if I had went with my first scissor estimate it would have been 41.

Anyway I am going to guess you were born at 3:17 am.

Now if I was a good fairie dragon I would pass on the book as I have a copy signed by you. So dear It should really go to Ms Sunshine!

hugs and again it was a joy to read about your life!

I'm feeling 3:53 a.m. Don't know why but that's the number that jumped into my head. Fingers crossed.

Your blog and journal are so colorful! I have a full huge set of prima(?) colored pencils but they do not give me the vibrant colors like your drawings have.
Maybe I should find a good set of marking pens? lol

Teri-They are tactile, huh! Didn't give thought to it when I posted the colors.
Jaye - I'm feeling old...what is a Blythe doll??? Gonna Google it.Hmmm...inspired by my doodle? How so?
Donnely-How sweet of you to forfeit your chance of breaking the tie. I'll let Carolyn know!!!
Ruth B - Oh sweetie...the question was for a special tie breaker....but you are close only 12 hours behind!
Sherri - I have the prisma's too, but they are boxed away in that special place that I can't find. I used the standard Walmart purchased pencils..RoseArt.
