We have a winner. Or two!

I hope that no one has been holding their breath this morning waiting for me because you surely would have passed out by now! More on my morning in a minute. Lets name our lucky winners.



Our good old Random Number generator produced the numbers 13 & 85 which means Jodie and Suzi are our Autumn Amy Butler winners! I will get in touch with you ladies to get your mailing addresses.

Let me just say here, many thanks for your lovely comments. It was a lovely, uplifting thing to read such kind sentiments. Thank you. Blogging is such an interesting thing. As I'm sure many of you have noticed, it's sometimes a weird sensation to publish something without any idea of who is out there consuming it or what they think. A couple of times people have randomly told me, "Oh, I read your blog!" and I always get a little embarrassed and start replaying old posts in my mind, wondering if this person thinks I am a buffoon. lol. So thank you again for the bloggy love and encouragement. I think if we all met each other in person, we'd have a really fun time hanging out. :)

In other news, I have been sewing (when what I really should be doing is assembling shelves) and I'm off to do more. I will share tomorrow!

Apologies again for the delay this morning. Things are a little off-kilter around here. My 3-year-old is displaying very strange behavior lately. Things like thinking it is hilarious to take off his clothes multiple times a day- especially when he is protesting something, or casually sliding his full bowl of cereal and milk off the edge of the table and onto the floor. I'm not sure whether to attribute this behavior to normal 3-year-old stuff or to some kind of anxiety about our move and new surroundings and unfamiliar routines. I'm sure it's a combination of all of the above, but it's getting a little old. Also, last night I discovered my daughter who said she has been doing her piano practicing all week, has not been doing all of it and is not remotely ready for her piano lesson today. So this morning as I was sitting with her at the piano before school, holding her hand through her practicing, my boys decided it would be fun to be streakers through the living room. Life keeps me on my toes. But as I type right now my little guy is happily entertaining himself with his trains. I will milk this moment and go look at more quilt festival quilts!

  2. 3-year-old granddaughter and 18-month-old grandson. Sometimes they each do the oddest things. But they are both highly entertaining.

    Beautiful fabrics. Congrats to the winners. *sigh*

  7. Ah the "Joys" of motherhood. I listened to a talk by the member of the general RS presidency that was never married. Forget her name right now. And she talked about the "joy" of motherhood. Sometimes that phrase makes me want to lose my lunch! I don't know about joy. I really don't. I felt joy when they were born but 99% of the inbetween days are anything but joyful! Maybe you are different but motherhood is mostly just hard work and enduring to the end to me. When you have adult children you might think like I do, or not. Lets just say I think 8 was overly ambitious of me.

    On the other thought, yes it is kind of embarrassing or interesting to meet bloggers. I remember when we first met I thought just like you describe "gee I hope I don't come off like an idiot". Really we are letting people into our intimate lives in bits and pieces. And that is ok as long as they "get" us.

    Sheesh I didn't mean to talk so much.

  8. I'm so glad I was able to witness said 3-year-old's antics in person on Monday. It seems unlike him so I'm guessing it's a phase... the little stinker.

    I'm so glad I got to see your new house and spend time with the fam. Keep the posts coming cause I sure look forward to them!

  9. Bwahahahaha....love the image of your naked kid!:) Not so much the spilled food! Yep, sounds like a stage...lets see how much attention I'll get by doing something really wild!:) I would think he'll get bored with it, especially when it really gets cold!;) Good luck...patience, patience!:)

    Went to Frederick today, only got to Shab Row, visited the quilt shop there Pins and Needles, cute and remenants are always 1/2 off!!!

    Couldn't find your emporium....is it that Canon Mills (or something like that) place? We drove all around and saw expensive antique stores but I want thrift!!!:) I'm so cheap!! I just love the idea of finding vintage sheets!! I'm on the hunt!!

Thank you so much for your comments - they make my day! I try to respond to as many as my 'mommy' time allows, but life sometimes gets in the way. Please know how much I appreciate each of them.

I apologize for the current comment settings that require a registered user account. They are the only way that I don't get tons of gross spam. I'm hoping Blogger will make a way where people who are not registered users, but would like to leave a comment can do so. Please, Blogger! In the mean time, thanks for your patience.

I also love to respond to questions. If you are a no-reply blogger, please leave an email address so I can get back to you. Or you can email me directly: amy @ diaryofaquilter.com. Thanks!
