Quick Draw on Saturday!

Who remembers this little guy?   

Ok just me then..... showing my age again!

This is Quick Draw McGraw!   He is a horse and a sheriff and a bit dim!

But I don't have Quick Draw and his helpers Baba Louis and the bloodhound to help me choose a winner for my blog birthday draw so instead I choose my eldest.....

Ok no real similarity with Quick Draw - apart from hat wearing but this hat came in quite useful....

Lucy you are in there, and Rachel....and all the others who wanted to be included from my blog birthday post and who left me such sweet comments.  Thank you ladies!

Drumroll please - see no cheating - she couldn't peek in and as you can see she closed her eyes anyway...

And the....


and here's what you get as soon as you send me your snail mail address...

Cindy has three blogs!  How does she do it!?  Tops to Treasures, started in January, 2011 and is also the name of her long arm quilting business as she wants our quilts on the bed not stuck on a shelf in an unfinished state!  If you want to know more she tells you a bit about herself here!  Her other blogs are Quilty Friends, and QF Elements which are part of a block of the month Cindy runs for her quilty friends and her local Frisco Quilt Guild.  Correct me if I have got it wrong Cindy!  Some nice blocks clearly explained if you are looking for a new block....

Phew - first proper givewaway!   No animals nor children were traumatised in the choosing of this winner.  Heehee!

Ha and now that is concluded this is what I got up to yesterday ....buses and Rose Star blocks come in threes as everyone knows!

Have to say I maybe becoming a bit obsessed about making these!  They are more-ish like a nice bit of chocolate, a salty snack , or even a large glass of wine!

And here is my block for Judith in her Bee Blessed role.... a wee Scottish lassie all dressed up in tartan dress, Argyll patterned tights and she is ready to Strip the Willow anyday that's a dance just for clarification to ye sassenachs!

That was fun - may have to give more stuff away - as I now have over 100 followers...unless you all leave in disgust of course?  No don't go...I didn't mean it!


  1. Well what do you know.....

    I know Quick Draw, he is one rough and tough hombre, a western version of Dudly Doright of the Royal Mounties. I even refer to my little cat as Bubbs Loo. I love the trip down memory lane.

    And I love your little mini. Thank you to your beautiful assistant for picking my name. I'll send you my address shortly.
