Back In Action and a Give Away

I took a break from the studio and blogging. It was nice to have family time. You can see photos of our day on Stephanie’s blog, here. Here are Mia and Miles sipping sparkling apple juice and waiting for the adults to sit down.

Yesterday, Mr C and I went to a matinee showing of Lincoln. It is a marvelous movie. Daniel Day Lewis was a fantastic Lincoln. I was most interested in how Congress was just as dysfunctional then as it is now.

Today, I made a huge pot of turkey soup with the leftover carcass. I have enough to feed the whole neighborhood. I also picked up some yarn to knit a Christmas stocking for Paige Ada. More about that later.

I also got back down to the studio and got caught up with my 3 x3’s. Here are the rest.

I feel as if I have had 3 Saturdays in a row and it is finally Sunday, tomorrow.

I was sent 2 copies of the Art Quilting Studio magazine because I have two articles, I guess. If you would like a chance to have my second copy, leave a comment between now and Tuesday, 9 pm PST, and I will do a random drawing for the winner.

    I’d like to win that magazine. It may inspire me to organize my sewing room. I like reading your blog.

  14. Kamilla Mazanec says:

  19. Judy says:

    What a well deserved honor. Thank for the this offer. I have not yet seen a copy of this publication.

  20. Gill says:

    Congratulations!
    I would love to win your extra copy!

  21. Feeling lucky – sign me up for the giveaway. As for your 3 x 3, that second one utilizes some very different colors than what you usually combine. Less zing and more calm. More along my lines, I realized.

  22. Karren Elsbernd says:

    I wrote a glowing tribute to all ‘twelve’ of you after seeing your wonderful exhibit at the Long Beach International Quilt show but somehow it did not ‘send’. And I said such wonderful things about it too. 12×12 was the first blog I ever signed up for and I enjoy all your postings and the chance to click around and visit your individual sites. Now I have the possibility of seeing into your studio…maybe for free. Thanks.

  23. sophie says:

    I keep looking at the Aspens in the neighborhood I moved into 2 months ago and thinking I need to include them in a quilt … so, of course, I’d love to win a copy of the magazine with your article.

  24. Betty Ayers says:

    I know you must be so proud about this article. I’m 1/4 of a little group trying our wings in 12×12 fashion and with one submission done, our next theme is “tree” or “trees” – how funny and coincidental!? I’m not familiar with this magazine, but would certainly love, love to win a copy. Many thanks.

  25. Susan says:

    I can’t wait to see the whole magazine!

    Dear Gerrie:

    I’ve been without high speed connection for over 3 weeks after Hurricane Sandy. Have spent just as much time speaking with customer service all over the world to correct a problem which is 3/4’s of a mile from our home, but cannot be addressed on a local basis. Tonight is the first time I have my speed, but not wireless . . . and you are the first person with whom I’ve connected!

    My husband and I have had long talks about the joys of creating with our hands from our heart. We’re so grateful for people like you who continue to share and inspire. Blessings to you and your family who are reaping the benefits of your time, talents and special, homemade gifts! I’m new to art quilting although I’ve been sewing for at least 60 years, if one counts the little antique doll-like machine I learned on at age 5! Your 12×12 group sparked the flame for me, shortly after buying my first “real” sewing machine! I’d love to be part of an on-line group like yours! Thank you again. Looking forward to your magazine, one way or another! In JOY . . .

  27. Leanne says:

    Hi Gerrie,
    It must be exciting to see your work published. It happened to me once, but with a landscape design. I love Aspen trees, so the article looks very intriquing.

    I love creating all kinds of art quilts using a multitude of techniques. I’m always interested in what others are using to produce their art. I would love a copy of the magazine!

  28. Sandra Ellison says:

    I’d love to win the magazine — thanks for offering it, and congratulations on your articles.

  29. Kathryn says:

    Congrats on your articles. I’m new to your blog but enjoyed looking around and will be back soon. I found you through the post on 12×12. Please put my name in the drawing. I’d love to read your articles.

  30. Janet says:

    I would love a chance to win the extra magazine. Congratulations on the two articles in this issue. Great blog!
