I love the Grabbit that you have in the store - I have had mine for about 16 years and couldn't sew without it.
I just made some applique blocks using Jennifer's fabric and all of them are beautiful.

1 Jennifer Paganelli is AWESOME! What a sweet and talented person she is.
2. Rudy's is AMAZINGLY good. I live 30 minutes from the original Rudy's. We go there often.

3. Don't know what I would do without my Grabbit. Best sewing tool around. I cannot wait to see what you add to your store!

So if I get to pick what I want to win. I want the quilt!

Good luck with the store, it looks promising. And thanks for the giveaway!

Nina said...

Well I honestly do have a lot to say. Firstly, Nancy is a wonderful quilting teacher. Her designs always inspire me to dust off my sewing machine and get quilting again. Secondly, my daughter idolizes her. She says when she grows up she wants to be like Nancy and live amongst all her favorite 4 legged friends.

Sabina said...

Hi Nancy, your blog is so much fun! Very inspiring. I'm going to check out Open Sky as well :)

mo said...

It's fantastic!! I have been meaning to come over and say congrats because I saw one of your lovely horses in a Christmas magazine I bought. Well done!!
