Stationery Winners -- Needed to Re-Post This!

Stationery Giveaway Winners!

Hooray, we've got three winners for the stationery packs from Carolina Pad!
Leslie at Post Grad, JC , and my British friend of Notes from the Frugal Trenches -- this package is for you. (Update: Frugal Trenches, I haven't heard from you yet...e-mail me!)

I've left messages for all three of you; please contact me (cindybrick@comcast.net) with your snail mail address, so I can get these on the road. Consider it an early Christmas present from Brickworks and our buddies at Carolina Pad! (Thanks so much to them for the support.)

It is still cold. Really cold. And snowing. Have you ever heard "In the Bleak Midwinter," that old-time Christmas carol? The boys do their business as quickly as possible, then race back inside to curl up by the space heater. For some reason, the fireplace freaks them out, and they refuse to go near it. So much for the cozy image of dogs snoozing in front of crackling flames.

Time to dig out our collection of Celtic Christmas CDs. They have a wonderful mix of 'chilly' sounding music that's perfect for all kinds of snowy days. (My favorite one is here.)

Diane over at Quiltmaker magazine
mentioned that my long-unobtainable book, Hanky Panky Crazy Quilts, is back! And she's right. We had to buy the whole printing from ASN, but I haven't regretted it for a moment. Even with publicizing the book for only a few weeks, we already have dozens of orders. Want your own copy? It's $12.95, including shipping -- one of the best buys on the Internet. We're supposed to have the books in stock about Dec. 12, and will ship any orders out (giftwrapped, by the way) within 24 hours of getting the books at the Brickworks offices. (We won't charge your credit card or cash your check until we send your book, either.) Click here to order a little Hanky Panky for yourself...or someone you love. (We've got kits, too.)

You'll also want to take a look at Diane's Valentine-themed Hanky Panky variation, in the Jan/Feb 2010 issue of Quiltmaker. Pretty, pretty, pretty. (It's pictured on the blog post, as well.)

Stay warm. I mean it.
