Gifts of Grace Block #5, and a good read!

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all having a good day.
I've been really tired the last few days.
I've been working so many nights shifts,
that I have a hard time switching my sleep schedule back to sleeping during the night.
I have to work day shift this weekend and
 that's going to be a shock to the system I think.
I haven't done much sewing the last couple of days, because I've been so tired.
 But I did manage to get Block 5 done of the Gifts of Grace BOM by Val Laird.
really like this one too.

I also read this really great book, Belong to Me by Marisa de los Santos.
I really loved this book.
It has a complex story, but it keeps you captivated through the entire book.
I couldn't put it down.
I read it in 1 day and a half.
So, if you haven't read it already, go get it at your local librairy.

I also wanted to let you know
about some of the GO! giveaway's going on in Blogland.
Here they are:

A quilt is nice - Giveaway coming soon!

So, If you are looking to win one of these GO! cutters, GO! check these sites out.

My GO! Cutter got stuck in customs this week. It got there on Monday, and it should finally be on it's way again today. Hopefully I will get it tomorrow, or the next day. I can't wait to get it. So keep checking back. I have a few patterns I put together that would work with the dies I'm getting. I can't wait to share these tutorials with you.

Edit: It is 5:00 pm eastern time and my GO!
Cutter has finally left Windsor, Ontario and is on its way to me. Yeah!!!!!

A reminder!!!
My 300th post giveaway ends tomorrow.
So make sure that you enter on this post!!

Hi Ariane, So many GO giveaways, thank you listing them.

I really do enjoy my GO and am so happy experimenting with the dies, especially combining the dies to come up with new patterns.
