After my 4Th tea refill I decided to go ahead and select my Elaine Wallet Winners.
So here you ladies are.....I will try to send you an email to let you know and so you can give me your address if I don't already have it.

Thanks for your comments ladies! I will have another give away someday soon.
Here is my little Emma. She went to her second sleepover last night. It was a dress up Movie Star theme, so we decided on this dress. My mom made it for me about 25 years ago (that is a quarter of a centurary...wow.) for a wedding in which my sisters and I were flower girls. My mom made 3 of these dresses. Holy cow! What a ton of work. I stick to bags and quilts...my clothing doesn't turn out so great. I curled Emma's hair and watched her swish around, remembering how I used to do that as well. Thanks so much for sending the dresses, mom! We love them!
This is the quilt top all finished. I am quilting it right now....It is looking so wonderful. This is the second quilt I have drawn out and planned...normally my planning just gets as far as a vision in my mind, but since this was a commission piece, I decided E and her sisters needed a bit more planning. So far it is turning out just like me sketch. It is just like art class back in High school. But more fun.
Oh and this is my Ethan's monster. He has been asking me to make one since I first got the CRAFT magazine with the monsters on the front. Finally I broke down and made him one. It is pitiful, you know? I sew constantly. My sewing machine is almost always on, and there is always something wonderful on the table in some stage of glorious production, but almost never are the things for my family. I need to change that. My kiddos are the most gracious and easy to please of my fans. Ethan has carried this monster around since I finished it. He just loves it. I know, because he said so and he caught it it's own lizard. That is the ultimate compliment. Everyone needs a lizard to love.
Alright, back to the sewing machine for me! Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Birthday to the Queen! I hope it rains all day! If only I could capture the scent of the rain here in the middle of Australia. I wish I could send you all a bottle!
