Slow sewing days.

Encouraging words of the day:
Never let loyalty and kindness leave you! Tie them around your neck as a reminder. Write them deep within your heart. - Proverbs 3:3, NLT

Thank you for your prayers for my family and friends who are experiencing a terrible fire in the Ruidoso Downs/Hondo Valley area of New Mexico.  The fire is now 75% contained! Many of the fire resources were able to go home on Friday.
I have not done much sewing in the last two days.  Well, I did quilt 3 more of the Dresden Plate blocks on my UFO.  Then my husband and I cleaned the garage on Thursday and you know how much fun that was.  Yesterday I tackled my library/office since the wind had been blowing for so many days and everything was full of dust.  Well, half of it is still full of dust since it took me so long to clean part of it.  Long story short, I have no sewing to show you.  I’ll be working on my Penny Haren Applique Block for next week later.

Giveaways I've run into while checking blogs, haha, I did manage to do some blog-hopping:

"Fabric Seeds"  has a charm pack to giveaway – ends April 15th.

"We Love Quilting"  is having a surprise box giveaway.

"Sew Fabulous" has a fat quarter bundle to giveaway – ends April 30th

"1 Choice 4 Quilting" has 6 fat quarters equaling 4 yards of fabric to give away to two winners – ends April 10th.

That is all.
