Welcome Blog Tourers!


Is "tourer" a real word??  Well... it is NOW! 



We're going to print out our comments for November 7th and put them in a "hat"!  The first and second names pulled will be the winners of a free copy of  Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Collector's Edition volume 4.  YAY!!   The third and fourth names pulled will receive a selection of fabrics perfect for embroidery or pieced backgrounds and a pattern. 



THEN !!!!!!!  We also have this little word puzzle above.... we're going to put all of the people who respond with the correct answer in a "hat", and the winner will receive a kit (fabric, tea towels, floss & pattern) for a brand new pattern called Peppermint Stick Tea Towels.  It's SO NEW.... it won't be released until next spring!  ........... all you have to do is take the letters given and find 9 (nine) words that have to do with stitchery and quilting!  You should use all the letters....but no more than the ones given.  I'll give you some really great hints to get you started.......... I have a fabric line called??? WHITEWASH, with LECIEN fabrics, and I stitch only with COSMO embroidery floss.... is that subtle enough???? LOL!  That should get you off to a good start...........

We'll post the winners next week, so check back to see if you need to email with your address info so we can send your prize to you!


Here's another little sneak peek at a couple of the new "A Gardener's Alphabet" blocks.  These are the last two!!!  YAHOO!!!!  Now all I have to do it trim them...sew them together.....figure out borders......write the pattern......photograph the quilt.......hmmmmmm....... there's a LOT of work yet to be done!  But the stitching is completed at least!  So it's time to celebrate!  This pattern should be out in January if all goes as planned!  I'll show you some of the other blocks as soon as we get them back from Lecien (they had them in their booth at International Quilt Market). 


OH!!!  The very first stitchery shown is a project for our Winter Stitching Sojourn Retreat that will be the first weekend in December.  I'll show you the whole thing once the retreat is over... I've already spoiled the surprise!  I can't keep a secret to save my life!!

Speaking of the winter retreat!... I spent the day shopping for Christmas stuff!!  I found WAY too much great stuff I couldn't live without at Beaverbark (my favorite store in the world!)  Got there just in time to pick stuff up out of boxes before it even made it to the displays!  Talk about 7th heaven!!  I also got a new Christmas tree for the studio to replace the one that was abducted and held for ransom a couple months ago........hopefully THIS tree will be the "stay at home" kind, and it won't wander off! LOL!!!! 

Well, good luck on the drawings and the puzzle.......... it was nice of you to stop by and visit Crabapple Hill Studio if it's your first time here!.......... and have a nice time on the "tour"!!

Eewwweee, way to early in the AM for this brain to find/figure out words (even with your super hints), so I'll grab the easier approach to snagging your 1of2 magazines. My first name is Jackie, so thus I'm first...hummm, pretty hat please ;) and grab this blog tourer!
And "welcome" to you, too. Love your designs!!!!

Quiltbirdie said...

I definitely want my name in the hat, but as for the nine words - I got eight and had 16 letters left over - so I think I'll skip the puzzle!

JoyceLM said...

Congratulations on being included in the new mag. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

Sam said...

Good morning! Love your designs, Meg.

Cotton Blossom said...

Well, I am rubbish at puzzles, but I must say I love the embroidery designs. I am new to embroidery, but find myself looking for opportunities to add it to many different kinds of projects. Thanks for designing a block for the magazines. These magazines are such treasure troves for quilters who participate in swaps and bees.

Sandie said...

Oh Meg! The pics are soo exciting.. as always! I have been away from the blogging world and basically everything for a few days.. my precious daughter was diagnosed with lymphoma last week..

I cannot wait to see the gardeners alphabet quilt- that looks like it will be fun to stitch! and the piece that you are doing for the retreat!! VERY PRETTY! I am just starting on the "HOPECHEST" that I got from you at the SLC market.. will be a good project to take with me as we are traveling back and forth to Boise for Hailies care...

THANKS for keeping me STITCHIN can't wait for the NEW ones

Grandma Rita said...

I can't wait to see your alphabet garden quilt all put together. It's such a tease! Your patterns have awakened in me the memories of the embroidery I did as a small girl, the very first handwork I learned. My favorite thing to do when I was a kid was color. I spent hours and hours with the color books and paper dolls. Combine all this with quilting and I am complete! Thanks for the memories!

Cyn said...

Love, love your block! Especially that it includes embroidery. :-)

Welllll, I found 10 words in the puzzle. Does that give me extra credit??? LOL!

kwiltnkats said...

Love your stitching designs. I'd say you have a lot yet to do on the journey to releasing your new set of designs. Wish I had the time and knowledge of stitchery do-dads and products to play along, but think I'd have to check books out from the library to compete! Thanks for the opportunity to win Volume 4. Sandi
