I wanted to share with you a little gifty/pattern I'm working on but 'eeks' and 'yikes' - I've been so busy launching geese (my friends on "Easy Street" will understand that) -  I've run out of time to get my 'tute' together. 
 But I can show you a pic of a nifty 'cord keeper' my friend Lauri made.
If you've been following my blog - you will remember I posted a tutorial to make these "cord keepers" - they are super for holding various computer cords, Ereader cords, earbuds...you get the idea. They're sooooo easy to make - and would make great stocking stuffers!
Lauri enlarged hers to accommodate her Kindle charger...I think she got very scientific and used her cereal bowl for a larger circle - heh heh. Yes, you can make this any size!
If you're new here - or just plum forgot - you can find the original tute HERE

Now don't forget:
1)Leave a comment for a chance to win the "Mountain Majesty" panel - that's all, just a comment.....nothing special...a simple "I was here and I think you're awesome" will do ~ LOL.
2)Take a peek at the 'cord keepers' if you missed them before or just wanna peek again
3) Hop over to the PARTY  - and see who else is joining in the fun - rumor has it there are OVER 150 Bloggers ready to Party Hardy!!! (a full list will be available after midnight (EST) Sunday night.
Til Laters....

  8. I know what you mean about the "geese" I finished the geese for the first version of Easy Street, but I still have quite a few for my second version. I am NOT, repeat, NOT going to start another version, even though I love your Jo Morton version!

    Thanks for the chance to win, too!!

  24. Your giveaway panel looks like it might match my giveaway fabric! I got all my pieces for the four patches cut today - still have to sew most of them together. And I got the fabric for the geese cut and 16 geese launched. Probably won't do much again until the weekend... work calls.

I just love to hear from you and I truly do read every comment. Sometimes life gets a wee bit crazy and I'm not always able to reply to them all...but I'll keep trying! If you are Anonymous or a no-reply blogger, leave your email with your comment, otherwise there's no way I can reply to you - and maybe you're okay with that - but if there's a give-away and you win...you'll never know!
