I must be getting older… or wiser.. or something… because in the last few years I have developed quite a lust for handmade quilts.
I hassled The Great Aunts for a long time until they made one each for the Twinadoes. They totally came up wiht the good, the girl’s quilts are ‘to die for!’. I have to admit I did waver for a minute or two before putting these delicious quilts on their beds, wondering if I could steal them for myself.
I’ve had fleeting moments when I’ve contemplated having a go at a quilt myself – Muski needs something nice and warm for his cot/bed maybe I could have a go at something simple?? Who am I kidding? I can sew, but not all that well and being precise, measuring and cutting so it all fits together, well that is just not my thing… at all. So I guess I will have to start lobbying The Great Aunts now for a quilt for Muski. A nice boyish quilt for when he gets his own room… sometime towards the end of next year if I am lucky. Hope you are both reading this??
So there you have it.. I have confessed to my quilt lust… and now in the interest of procuring a quilt of my very own I am forced to confess that there is a blog competition going on where you can win the most divine quilt. Now I don’t really want to tell you about this competition, because of course the more people who enter the less chance I have of winning. Plus you all have an unfair advantage…you all can make a video of how much you want to win and upload it to you-tube which is totally not fair because not only do I not have a camera that will take video with sound, at the moment I don’t have a stable enough net connection to upload it either. Yet here I am telling you about this competition anyway, because I am a nice person and want to share the quilt love… ahem… well ok it’s because if I blog about it I get extra entries, and I really REALLY like this quilt.
So here you are… here is the link… go to Old Red Barn and check out this amazing quilt that this amazingly talented woman is just giving away… I’ve lurked on this blog for a while and it is full of wonderful stuff but I have to admit I think Dana is a little mad to be giving this away… but anyway.
Go check it out, but really you don’t have to enter.. really you don’t… just leave this competition to me and 2037 other people who entered – Yes that is 2037 comments, on this blog post at the moment, sure to be more before the comp ends in the next day or two!
