Congratulations Winners!

For those of you who have been participating in the Quilting Gallery Blog Hop Party I am happy to announce that  #23 Linda V. won the Fleur de Lis Quilts giveaway.  Linda answered my email this morning, and I've promised to send her prizes which are posted here  on Monday.  
What she doesn't know is that because her comment noted how much she loves vintage patterns, I've decided to add another vintage pattern to her winnings!  This one is already packed up with her other items.  I hope she likes it.
Most of my weekend has been spent working on a special project for our living area.  We have a large window seat that has not been used very much for various reasons, but now that there are so many of us, someone generally ends up sitting on that uncomfortable seat.  I decided that it's time to make a cushion for it.  
little did I think it would involve so much work.  I've made small cushions before, but this baby is 108 inches long and has a funny shape because the bow window has five separate window units, meaning there are five different angles.  Oh, making the pattern was easy.  It's cutting into that expensive fabric that's difficult!  But it's cut and some stitches are in, so there's no going back now.  Hopefully I'll have photos of the completed project on my next post.
Besides working on this sewing project, I've been working a bit in the yard and garden.  The strawberries are driving us crazy. 

I've made about 20 pints of strawberry preserves or strawberry syrup (for pancakes) but as you can see, there are more strawberries waiting for the pot.  They'll have to wait till tomorrow, but if I'm late getting to the computer, it's the strawberry jam that's delayed me.  
Welcome to the new followers from the blog hop party.  I hope you find something of interest here.  And to everyone, please leave a comment and let us know what is keeping you busy this weekend.  You might also congratulate Linda on her win. (hint, hint)
Happy quilting,
