Giveaways...aways...aways...

That's my rendition of an echo. haha.

Pat at Silver Thimble is having a wonderful givaway to celebrate her 150th post. I hope you go and visit her, even if it means you reduce my chance of winning! Every time I see "Pat of Silver Thimble" I always think of the L.M. Montgomery (author of Anne of Green Gables) book, Pat of Silver Bush. I loved that book when I was a young girl. Little did I know I would grow up to marry a man from the same island as Lucy Maud. Since Mr. P and I met, I've had the chance to visit all the Prince Edward Island tourist sites based on her books, including the house that inspired Silver Bush.

But that's not what this post is about, is it? Here's another great giveaway: Go and visit Gene at Gene Black an Alabama Artist to help him celebrate his 250th post and the arrival of a new 'baby' (the easiest kind of baby - no diapers to change, just bobbins).
.
And it's the weekend. I'm supposed to be marking. In fact, I have assignments piled all over and they're getting in the way of me playing on the computer. I get sidetracked easily, though, which is why the marking has been shoved aside so I can blog. Better get back to it even though I have other, more important (fun) things on my to-do list, like finishing that "Let it Snow" quilt which has been nicely laid out on the spare room bed for months, waiting for me to sew the blocks together. Oh, it's been hanging around for such a looonnnnggg time now.

As my mother always said, There's no rest for the wicked. I wonder if she was actually talking about me when she said that. Hmmm...

Have a great weekend!

I loved Anne of Green Gable, but never heard of Pat of Silver Bush. Not sure how I missed that one! Hope you found time to quilt this weekend.

I only said "no rest for the wicked" because my mother always used the expression. Love you Mum
