Toughest Drawing EVER




I really, really wish I had enough fabric to give each of you a bundle. Melvin feels the same way--believe me.



When he saw the bowl with 149 entries in it, he decided to run away and join the circus. That's just way too much pressure for such a little guy.



It appears Jane has convinced him to stay. At least I think that's the message she was giving him...

None of our winners specified a colorway, so when you email me (latebloomerquilts@yahoo.com) with your mailing address, let me know which you'd like. First come, first served.

For those of you who didn't win, well, real soon there will be a free pattern so while that's not the same as new fabric, hopefully it'll ease the pain a bit!

So here are the winners:

Marmite Toasty
Nurse Payne (hey, I know her!)
Vickie E
Elizabeth (Creative Breathing)

Congratulations!!

I love Melvin and he is sooo cute in costume. I had guinea pigs as a teenager and I loved them. Now I have a Norwich Terrier and when he is groomed short he looks just like a guinea pig only bigger! I love your blog!

Elizabeth, My very first giveaway and I thought I had won a guinea pig! Oh my gosh, I have the biggest fear of fabric because it seems too intimidating to choose, and here you have done the work for me! Thank you so much. I love the fruit fabric if it is not already chosen. Your generosity is very much appreciated! Your blog is lovely! Elizabeth

Melvin has to be the coolest dude around! My DD, who is 8, wanted to know where Melvin buys his clothes LOL!!! I explained that you probably made the ensemble and she now wants me to make her kitten a similar outfit!!! I think I am going to have her banished from the room while I read blogs especially yours and Anne Sutton's!
