It's not about the taking part................'s all about the winning,lol. I finished the Peeps quilt on Monday night, just about the time Lynne posted details of a competition over at Aurifl threads. So I thought, what the heck! I'll submit my quilt. Apparently it's ok to shamelessly ask friends to vote for your quilt so please pop over and vote for me even tho there are tons of better quilts on show.
These are the prizes on offer -
I did hope for a bit of sunshine to show off The Peeps but it's dull and raining - no surprise there, then!
 the front
the back
and my close up fmq - have to show it off, not perfect but I am pleased with it.

and now for something completely different, but well worth winning:-
Ali, over at Very Berry Handmade has a wonderful giveaway linked to New Year resolutions. I have been reading several bloggers' resolutions and have been thinking about it all morning. It would be fairly easy to make a nice long list and then promptly do little or nothing to achieve the goals set out. So, my aim is sort of back to front - I am going to try not to take on too many new projects this year and to reduce my Christmas makes to just a few, for special friends. I have a notion to make my son a new quilt and have fallen for Circa 1934 by Cosmo Cricket so that idea is festering in my mind. So far this year I have joined Rhonda's Finish a Long which I think is concentrating my resolve to clear up those UFOs. And, I jumped into the Mouthy Stitches Swap, how could I not?
So why don't you visit Ali's blog and leave a comment, you might win one of the fabulous prizes on offer. I think I fancy this one -

or maybe,
Good luck!
