Time for a Giveaway

Next Tuesday, Sept. 2 is my first anniversary of this blog called "My Quilting Porch" with that beautiful Maryland sunset for a header.

Many of you have been faithful in following my quilting, weather disasters, gardening such as it is in these woods, and visitors. So I now want to give you a chance to get a little piece of some of my work.

I love scrappy and using up all those bits and pieces we make doing big quilts. So this is a little bit of scraps. Mostly Thimbleberries.


So from now to Tuesday if you make a comment for the giveaway your name shall go down for the drawing which I shall do sometime in the late afternoon of Sept. 2. EDT. Please if you are an anonymous be sure to leave your email Addy so i can find you.

Now to show you the newest guest in our home.


Doctor decided it was time to give me a little relief from pushing the wheelchair around and ordered a Scooter for hubby. He's having a hard time learning to drive but is improving every day. Isn't it Jazzy? That's his name.

Funny the other morning after hubby had taken a Vicodin for pain the night before, he said he woke and thought I was sitting in the living room with him. LOL! Just Jazzy sitting there.

Then Tuesday when I went to the basement to finish quilting my paper pieced quilt, I looked out the window and saw this


He is growing fast and eating the weeds. That's better than the leaves off the azaleas. I went back upstairs to get my camera and shot this out the downstairs porch window. He was just as far away as the width of the driveway. All by himself. Yesterday while I was gone, hubby said that the home care nurse and Bill, our friend that is coming and sitting while I have a day out, was fascinated watching both of the fawns and the Mother eating away in the back. These city people don't know what they are missing. Our neighbor said there is also a young buck around. I haven't seen him but their antlers are just growing now and unless you are a hunter they are hard to see.

So the comment list is open. Good luck to one of you. Thanks for visiting.

I like your hubby's Jazzy. My hubby has something similar. Very nice, but loading and unloading can be difficult! You may need to check into a lift for your vehicle.

I'd love to be entered in your drawing. Very sweet little quilt!

Amanda said...

What a lovely little quilt - I really think it should be heading over to the UK! I do hope your husband gets on with his new scooter, it should make life a little easier for you. We live in a town, so get foxes visiting, but my parents used to have deer turning up regularly. They made my mother so mad because they used to eat all her plants!

Hi there.

Love the little quilt and the pretty handquilting. What a nice gift.

The baby deer are cute and I'm sure much fun to watch.

I am so happy that you get time to yourself and days away from the house and all your responsibilities .
Nice that he has such a good friend to come and sit with your DH.
I love seeing your pictures...
the little quilt is just perfect, really reflects you with the hand quilting and all.
What a treasure that will be for someone to win.

Your quilt is wonderful and will be loved by whoever will win it. I am also having a give-away that ends on this coming Wednesday so be sure you hop over and sign up for it, I would love it if you would! I try and go thru the Mystery Web Ring a couple of times a week and love all the quilters in the ring and their blogs!

Your give-away quilt is just darling! I'm so glad that your hubby can have the scooter--will feel much more independent! Your deer picture is precious. Thanks for having a give-away--what fun!----from, Anne's Mom, Jan

Candace said...

I wouldn't miss your giveaway, and the quilt is adorable. I hope your husband enjoys his new 'jazzy' scooter. Anything that makes life easier is worth a good try. Your picture of the fawn was a day brightener, just a happy picture.

Kim said...

Your scrappy giveaway quilt is delightful. I am a big fan of hand quilting, your work is so well done! Has this baby deer been living there all summer? So sweet when they are young, before they move on to eating every bit of the landscape! Our deer can clear out a large Hosta garden in just one night. Nice to have a new vehicle for hubby to get around in, wheel chair pushing takes a lot of energy.

Fiber Happy said...

I'm a lurker and I love your little quilts. The quilting on this jem is tremendous and I would love to have a chance to win it. The deer picture is wonderful. Thanks for sharing, Happy stitching, Helen

What a cute little scrappy quilt. I would be honored to have this hand quilted little gem.

Glad to hear that hubby got a Jazzy. I think when he gets use to it he will be in love. Makes him more independent and makes it much easier for you. Are you able to get it in and ot of the car?

That Jazzy will be so nice for your hubby to get around in. I wish I had that when my dad was in a wheelchair. The little quilt is so lovely.

Happy Blogaversary! You have made a nice little quilt that I would be honored to win!

I enjoyed reading your blog.

Quilt Hollow said...

Your little quilt would fit perfectly in my home....have a look at my blog and you'll see what I mean. We have many deer here in the Fall/Winter time and one morning I walked out back to see at least 9. I couldn't get my camera fast enough. I share movie popcorn with them every now and then.

ratherbquilting said...

What an adorable little quilt, and hand-quilted too! Count me in, please!

Love the deer, BTW! My DH and I saw two baby raccoons in a hollow log on the nature trail yesterday.

Carol said...

Happy blogiversary Eileen. How cool is that seeing Deer right outside your window, I would love to live in a place like that someday. Your little quilt is so cute, I would like a chance to win. I'm in the QH group, I think you've seen posts from me before.

D Rubio said...

I love your little quilt. I do love hand-quilting and this is done so nicely. Thank you for sharing. Denise

Happy Anniversary and congratulation on the new ambulatory method for DH. Beautiful pictures and I loved the sun bonnet sue remembrance. You come from a fine tradition of quilting. I hope one of those beautiful granddaughters picks up the needle and thread some day.

Congratulations, Eileen, on your blog's anniversary! I don't get by our TB group much anymore but I do make an effort to read your and Kim's blog a couple of times a week. I like Jazzy! I've been telling my Mom she needs to get one for my Dad! Enjoy seeing the pics around the area you live! Big Hugs!

Happy blogaversary. Kim sent me over to sign up for your give-away but I already have you on my google reader as a favorite. I watch the deer in my yard eat all my gardening efforts. Cursed darn deer!!! Only city slickers think they are cute!

NanaKaren said...

Congrats on your 1 year blog anniversary! The little quite is really nice...love the colors! Looks like you did a wonderful job. The fawn is adorable....we have some in our back yard and they are growing so fast...one has nearly lost his spots. They are such peaceful animals.

HI Eileen,
The deer is so cute- That looks like one fine machine for your spouse.
Please enter me in your draw- what a lovely thing to do.
Regards from a Western Canadian Quilter,

I like your husbands new way to get around. I laughed out loud when he thought Jazzy was you!

Your Sunbonnet Sue blocks are beautiful. My mother made one quilt: a Sunbonnet Sue for me. She did lots of creative things in sewing, but quilting wasn't one of her best things. She passed away 19 years ago, so she would be so proud of my quilting hobby.

I, too, would love to win one of your handquilted quilts. Please enter me in your drawing and Happy Blogiversary!!

Amanda

Kim said...

happy blogaversary :)
The mini quilt is so adorable :)

MARCIE said...

Oh wow, it is 5:00. Did I miss the drawing? That would figure, as I am always behind. Your little quilt is adorable, and I bet it is so nice to have deer in the yard. My daughter's family is enjoying that in their new home also.
