Weekend Wonders Giveaway Winner- Congrats to Linda!

The winner of the Weekend Wonders book is lucky number 38.... Linda!  And that's no April fool joke, Linda!  Linda's blog, Stray Stitches, has been on my reading list for quite some time.  Her blog is a good read with lots of good information.  Did you know that today is National Tatting Day?  Who knew?

I've always wanted to learn how to tat.  My grandmother made many beautiful pieces- many of which I now own.  The problem is- I don't know what to do with them.  I never learned because I never had the desire to have the finished product.  My grandmother used to make edging for pillow cases and sometimes bookmarks... but I digress.

Back to the reason for this post- CONGRATS to Linda!  And thanks to all who entered.  And a great big "Welcome" to all of the new followers this month.  It's great to have you reading along!

I'm going on another quilt retreat this weekend (lucky me!).  I'll be posting pictures when I get back.  And I'll put up a new giveaway for April next week.  Have a fantastic weekend, everyone!

Congratulations to Linda!
I have done lace work, but not tatting.
I don't think I have the patience anymore.

Where is your retreat? Hope you had a fun time! Lucky you to have some tatting. Do you CQ? Lots of folks that do incorporate tatted things into their crazy quilts.
