Feature Friday {And Are You Signed Up For My Giveaway?}

Wow! What a week! I’ve been fighting feeling low, and I think I’m starting to feel a tiny bit better. I think it helped that the sun came out for a couple of days. I really ought to get one of those SAD lights. Do any of you use one? If so, what do you think of it? Does it work?

Things might be kinda ‘bare bones’ around here next week. My lovely daughter Savi has a week off of school for half term, so I expect we’ll use a lot of that time to hang out together. She is such a good kid. I am SO lucky! I’m hoping we can go shopping, dye hair, bake, sew, maybe even knit together. Plus I’m getting A NEW SEWING MACHINE today! Oh yeah! I ordered a Janome Horizon from GUR sewing machines. AWESOME!! So I’ll be immersed in reading the manual for a few days.

And make sure you’re signed up for my sweet giveaway – there are {at least!} 3 prizes so get in on it now!

On, on with the features! This week’s most popular links were:

We were all intrigued about Patricia of Happy Days Quilting and her pile of rainbow charms. So pretty! Looks like she’s making a New York Beauty block! (I am too, but it’s taking forever.)

Dorian of Ridge Top Quilts has been making some truly lovely scrappy log cabin blocks – there’s very small at only 5″ but so cute! Go Dorian!

See you all Monday for another Manic Monday Linky Party!

    Oh my gosh! That is a sewing machine and a half! Have fun next week with your daughter, I’d be so torn between spending time with my kids and a time with the sewing machine, terrible I know!!

    I shared your link on my facebook wall — Kathy Schaller Snider.

  3. Just got my first Janome- the 3160 QDC last fall, when my Singer died. Then last Saturday I got the Baby Lock Ellure Plus! (Have only been quilting and sewing seriously since last September!) Am so jealous- the Janome Horizon! When hubby gets a new job (he was laid off in August) will start saving for either that, the Ellisimo or a Pfaff Creative Vision 4.0

    LOVE your blog- has been a daily must read since I discovered it!

    I have been sewing on my new Horizon for about 6 months, and you are going to be in sewing heaven! Have fun!

    Jenna, I’ve been using a SAD lamp this winter and I think it’s really helped. I use it for about 30 minutes in the morning on days when there isn’t any sun. I borrowed it from a friend but plan on buying my own for next winter. February and November are my two bad months, but this year has been pretty good :)
