Photo Quilt using family photos for a nice piece of photo-wall-art in our family room. I will probably post a tutorial on this later, but here are some pictures of the photo quilt I made for my parents 35th Anniversary in 2006.

  17. Thanks for doing the giveaway. I haven't listened to the newest podcast yet, but I'm really looking forward to it. I've been on the fence about getting the Tina Fey book so I can wait to hear your thoughts. And your photo quilt looks great.

  24. Oh, sign me up for this give-away--I'm dying to read this book!

    By the way, I saw you gave "I Think I Love You" one star. I loved her first book, but could only get through about 20 pages. So disappointing!

  28. Just started listening to your podcast. Checked out your books on Goodreads and have downloaded "Unbroken" on my IPad. I have to say, I am not much of a biography reader, but your review made it sound so interesting. Also, I added your blog to my blogs that I follow. Would love to be a part of your give away.

  30. Hi Tanesa. I've included comments above already but also wanted to say thanks for offering to do a tutorial on how to do a photo quilt. I would really like to do one and would appreciate a tutorial on it. Thanks.

  31. Okay I've spent the last week listing to your podcast from beginning to end. Your 1st post to thus one. It's great to listen while computing 2 days s week for the 3 hour total distance. As I listened I was sad to know I missed giveaways. And happy to know that I am in time for this. The last episode I listed to was seeing red, and I am so interested in redwork yet haven't seen many talk about it. I have lots more to share about how much I love about your style and "add" craftinghabits that sound a lot like me! Hope my name is chosen.

  32. We share the same weakness. I love book and magazines. I love when the mail comes. I truly make an effort to cut back but....... Thanks for the chance of having these in my mailbox.
