Tidy Up Tuesday - All About Strings - Personal Hop Winner!!!

Welcome to the next edition of Tidy Up Tuesday!!  This post is a follow-up to my recent All About Stings Blog Hop post.  You see, I asked that people read all the way to the end of the post.

Why, Joyful???

The reason is simple, really.  I wanted everyone to have a chance to win the SURPRISE GIVEAWAY that I was offering!

Here it is, in black and white:

Thanks for reading to the end of my post.  As a result, I want to offer you a PRIZE.  Would YOU like to win your own String-y Quilted Thread Catcher?  Leave a comment SPECIFICALLY STATING that you would like to be included in the drawing!!!

The winner will get to choose the colors that I use for the prize.  Qualifying comments MUST BE RECEIVED by Thursday, April 4th @ 9 PM (EDT) to be entered in the drawing.  Winner will be notified by email, so make sure to add that to your comment, if you are a NO REPLY BLOGGER.

Wishing everyone SEW much luck!

Sorry!!  The drawing is now CLOSED!!!

I was SEW pleased by the overwhelmingly positive response to my recent giveaway.  Sorry to say, I can only have one winner for a FREE thread catcher!

The WINNER is:

Nicole Sender!!!

Congratulations, Niki!!  Nicole has been notified via email.  Beth Strand and TAC73 both missed out by not adding their email address so that I could contact them.

I'm pretty excited because Niki chose a rainbow theme for her Quilted Thread Catcher.  I'm really looking forward to creating it for her.

Enter Saturday's Sew/Craft Friends-zy for this month...

I assembled panels:

Quilted them:


Finished off  the basket:

It took all afternoon, but it was well worth the effort!!  I'm pleased with how it turned out and I think Niki will be, too.

Now, I just have to find time to get to the Post Office.  The BEST part is that I remembered to put it on my Spring 2019 (Ravelry) UFO Club List.  Hooray!!  My 1st finish of the session!!!  Color me a VERY happy quilter.  :o))

Until next time...
It's ALL about those strings!!!
