Giveaway updates plus Pinktober!

I can't believe it's already October!  Fall is my favorite time of year.  October is a busy month at my house, both Fire Monkey and Husband have October birthdays and our anniversary is in October.  Lots of celebrations!

October is also breast cancer awareness month, and I am thrilled to be participating in Island Batik's Pinktober blog hop, hosted by Brianna of Sew Cute & Quirky.  Island Batik has created two beautiful collections honoring the fight against breast cancer, Positively Pink and Hope & Heart.  


For most of the month, featured bloggers will be showcasing these collections and telling how breast cancer has affected them or their loved ones.  My day is October 10th, so come back and see the Positively Pink quilt I made. Other sponsors of the hop are Aurifil and Quilter's Perfect Klip. Here is the full list of participants:

Speaking of Blog Hops, September's Tool Talk blog hop was a success!  The winner of my giveaway of three beautiful blue Island Batik fabrics from the Prairie Blue collection is Maryellen!  I've already contacted Maryellen and will get her prize in the mail.

Looking for another chance to win a prize?  Preeti of Sew Preeti Quilts is giving one of my readers a copy of her newest pattern, Arabella's Garden.  Check out this post and leave me a comment there by October 7th to enter.  


  1. You do have a busy month! Hope you enjoy all of the celebrations!

  2. Happy October to all of you! We have all our birthdays in November (anniversary is September) but it does keep that month extra busy.

  3. Such pretty fabrics in each collection. Looking forward to seeing what you put together for the blog hop. Enjoy all the celebrations. We've got 2 birthdays this month too, My Guy and my mother.

  4. This is such a great cause, I have worked win breast centers for years doing mammogaphy and breast ultrasounds . So scary that there is so much of it, but we have to keep on fighting.
