Want some mice in your kitchen?

Not the furry squeaky kind of course!!  I mean, these mice:


That’s right – these are the mice that are up for grabs!!  The contest goes live tomorrow, August 19th, on the HandmadeMN blog. How can you enter? Check out the page sometime tomorrow and the post will tell you how. But it’s pretty simple, all you have to do is leave comments on the post over at the Handmade blog and each comment counts as an entry. But wait till the contest is announced! Only comments on that post are counted. =)

Now, for those of you paying attention and actually reading this post – a bonus, of sorts. If you win the drawing, you can pick out any pair of mice in my store. You may love these beautiful red ones, which is great, but if red isn’t your thing, I’ve got lots of other colors too. So if you win and you want a different pair, just let me know. Good luck!




Just in time

I’ve been working away the past few months preparing for the Powderhorn Art Fair, which is THIS weekend!  Just in time, I finally finished that scrappy rainbow quilt I’d been working on. I like how it turned out, though I kind of wish now I’d had a friend machine quilt it. The hand-quilting is fine, it does make for a more pillowy finish – but it takes forever!

I also got these chubby little chick quilt hangings done. I don’t think I’d even mentioned I’d been working on them. My mom sent me the chubby chicks pattern and I’ve been working on them on and off for probably a year. I have another half dozen chicks in process somewhere. But at some point I decided to make two small wall hangings instead of a bigger quilt and I like how it turned out.

Oh, and for those of you who were interested, I’ll have a pair of my mouse hot pads up for grabs, in a giveaway, in a couple weeks. Stay tuned and I’ll let you know how you can enter to win!

All you local folks, I hope you can drop by and see me at the Art Fair this weekend! It’s in Powderhorn Park and I’m on the lake, space #17. If you don’t want to drive, you can take the bus for free!
