WooHoo! My first freebie!

Well, I've been trying to figure out how I can give you free patterns for a long time. Easy and cheap, that is. I think I've finally figured something out.  So this is a dry run and I need your help. 

In the spirit of football season or whatever reason you feel you need, I've got a mug o' beer for ya' all.   Click on the link and download the pdf file for the free applique pattern. (You'll need Adobe free reader)
Then, if you will, come back here and leave me comments regarding your experience in retrieving the pattern.  I think it's going to be easy but I'd love to hear about it, was it difficult to get to, did it download easily, was it more work than you want to deal with? If all goes well, I'll have more free patterns from time to time and I'll annouce them right here. 

 CHEERS, EVERYBODY! and Happy Football Season!

Quilt Festival at Park City Girl

I had to jump on the Quilt Festival band wagon.  This is one of my favorite quilts, it's not to big but it's the cuddliest quilt I own.  I made it using homespun fabrics with a flannel backing and it's so soft and warm. I don't dare cuddle with it if I'm planning to watch a good movie.  I never stay awake for long under this one.

Join in on the Fall Quilt Festival at ParkCityGirl by clicking the following link or the Quilt Festival button on the left.  Tons of great prizes and plenty of quilty eye candy to enjoy.

Weird happenings in blogland.........

ChrismediumWell, I'm experimenting at uploading photos. For some mysterious reason, my photo uploader here at "B" has changed. And I'm not sure I like it. Sooooooooo, doing a little experimenting.
In the meantime, check out some of my favorite little people.

Mommie, why is the babies' face all scrunchie?

Well, maybe it's ok to have a little brother afterall.

Oh boy! I can go to school now and get away from my new little brother.

I love playing with my Daddy!

Aren't merry-to-rounds just the coolest thing?

Just monkeying around...........

Ok, some of these guys aren't so little anymore.
Hold on, Braiden, GrandpaGreat will stop tickling you in a minute!
My terrific Dad, my one and only super wonderful nephew and his absolutely adorable boys, Sully and Braiden, my great nephews.

Ok, maybe I can get used to the new photo loader, maybe.................except I can't get my name at the bottom of each post. Hum, maybe that will have to disapear altogether.

A few of my favorite little people................

I'll have my dinner in front of the TV, thank you.

Blogger being contrary.............

Well, kids, I was going to post some pictures this morning but, hum, my photo upload button seems to have disapeared. Is it cold? It is only 45* this morning, maybe that's the problem. Anyone else out there in bloggerville experiencing this trouble?

I'm off to search the help files.
