I know, I know...

I only seem to post about giveaways lately - but this one is special. This blogger - Katie - is giving away a quilt to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society - a cause near and dear to her because her husband has been battling Lymphoma for three years. Go check it out and make a donation if you can - every little bit adds up!

Have a pieceful day!

I received this gorgeous mini from Laurie (locodowo) in a swap on Flickr - the Quilt Swap Boot Camp. It was a swap I ran for new swappers - it was a small group but I think a good time was had by all!

Pincushion Swap

Pincushion from Midland Design
Originally uploaded by piecefulchaos

I participated in a couple of pincushion swaps this summer on Flickr. This is the pincushion I recently received from Midland Design - isn't it adorable? I just love it! I collect pincushions and love all different kinds but animal/whimsical types are my favorite. Now I just need a good place to display all of them!

Oh, and I am trying something new -the Blog This feature on Flickr. I've been neglecting my blog since I really got addicted to Flickr so if this works and maybe I can blog from Flickr I will have no excuse!

My son got engaged!

Here's a picture of the happy couple right after it happened!


We just couldn't be happier! She is a wonderful girl - they've been dating 6 years since high school so we feel like she is already part of the family. To top it off, my son got a job offer this week as well (he just graduated college) so there was lots to celebrate this week!

Have a pieceful day!

No excuses

I have no excuses for being away from my blog for this long. I had stuff to say, just never seemed to get here to say it. The longer you are away, the harder it seems to get back into the swing. So here I am and hopefully I can get back into the swing of it.

I have a bunch to catch up on but I am going to start with the most recent - this weekend was the quilt show for a local guild - I used to belong 20 years ago but they meet during the day so I can't participate anymore. The show was great -and even better I got to meet a friend from one of the swap groups I belong to on Flickr!

Piecefulchaos and quiltedoma
This is Andrea (Quiltedoma) and I at the quilt show. It was so cool to meet someone from an internet group in person! Andrea belongs to a local guild that meets at night and invited me to a meeting. She might come to a group I belong to also.

Also today I received my placemat from the placemat swap on flickr. Lori (lollydo) made me this great placemat:

It is double sided! Hexagons and spider web blocks - two of my favorites!
