I was fortunate enough to finish 2 more projects for the challenge in January. I finally sewed all the binding for my Smores quilt. I am glad I finished it before the snow melted! My daughters love it.I have also been working on a few tutorials for Moda's new blog Moda Bakeshop. My Lil Zipper Bag (as named by my daughter) was my first tutorial. So yeah, I get to post it as a finish for January!! I have a whole lot going on, including a few quilts coming from my cool quilter, more tutorials, my super awesome fabric buying spree this week....yeah lots to blog about....
In celebration of my 4 January finishes...I am going to have a giveaway....so comment on this post and make sure that you send me your email so that I have a way to contact you. Post about my giveaway on your blog for an extra entry! Let me know that you posted on your blog so that I may check it out! I will draw on February 8th.....for this...Chez Moi charm pack and a heart hand knit dishcloth....Good Luck!

The other 2 will go out Monday. I have to say that I saw your tutorial on Moda Bake shop yesterday and was wowed!!! I saw who posted it and was so excited for you. Congrats. I did leave you a comment there too! Can't wait to see more from you!

Hi Vickie, I wanted to let you know that I am new to blogging and I found your tutorial on the Lil Zipper Bag at Moda Bakeshop. Of course that lead me right to your Mid-Ohio Knitter blog. What a nice blog. I have made one of the Lil Zipper Bags. You can view it on my blog. (www.truecreationskathy.blogspot.com)
I am encouraging others to make this cute Lil Zipper Bag. It goes together so easily. It only took me an hour.
I can't wait to see what other tutorials you'll be coming up with!

Good, this gives me a chance to tell you that I love your blog, I use it to play music, and I love the updates to the other blogs, who has posted recently. Your latest quilt is so pretty! I am sorry I did not buy that fabric. I enjoyed your story on the quilt shops, I have had that same experience. Our local shop in Bryan-College Station, Texas is awesome, I am very lucky to have it. I am goint to make one of your Lil bags. :)
