Winner! New Pattern Aunt Sarah Jane

Aunt Sarah Jane
 
The pattern is finally finished and will be on the website tonight. Geoff had the pattern started but with the passing of Grandpa it kind of put a stop to everything. I'm glad to say we are back and working on fun and new projects!
Some words of advice here: If you have a safe deposit box make sure your children or who ever you would like to look in it after you pass can have access. When my parents died they were really prepared with Trusts and such but.. my name wasn't on the safety deposit box and boy what a pain to get access too.
I have been cleaning out my parents house and it makes me know that I need to go through my stuff so that Geoff won't have a mess.. my dad kept papers from 1957..lol
Life is good though and enough about that!
The winner of the gift certificate is:

I use Brenda Henning's Triangulations CD. I can create perfect papers for any size half sq triangle and Qtr Sq Triangle. I use Carol Doak's foundation paper (rips out easy). Someone mentioned "why don't you use kid's coloring paper?"
So I have even been known to use that too. Print as many as you need. Sews up fast, fast. I just did 90 sheets of 1.5 in finished HST. Took me about a week of an hour or two an evening to sew, cut and pull papers, 1600 HST. No trimming needed. It's the best way to do lots at once. 
 
 
Thanks so much for commenting on my blog friends!
I will be having another giveaway soon!

Have a great day!

love all you design and this is another stunner! I feel the same way about cleaning, simplifying now.....but that doesn't include all yards of fabric, tons of books and patterns, etc. my kids will be going crazy going through all that!

Love your new pattern! You are right about the safe deposit box - so many things that we should take care of that we really don't want to think about and deal with!
