August is Flying By

August is just zooming by.  School starts this week for the rest of the metro Atlanta area which means traffic gets 10 times worse and I'll have to stop hitting snooze a million times get up earlier.  I am working on three gift quilts at the moment. One just needs a label, one needs binding finished, and one I am quilting myself.  I'll have photos soon, as I hope to get these all out this month.

Oh and a big day is coming at the end of this month.

Someone is celebrating his one-year-old birthday on August 29th.

In honor of not-so-little-anymore Remy's upcoming birthday, I'm having a little giveaway for my faithful readers, who have followed his antics since November.

There is a choice of giveaways.


 Choice #1 is eight fat quarters of batiks.



Choice #2 is nine fat quarters of an older Kansas Troubles line called Strawberry Jam.

Just leave a comment on this post and let me know if you would like choice #1 or choice #2.
Drawing will be held on Mr. Remy Mischief's Birthday August 29th.

Fine print:  Random drawing. Please make sure I can get ahold of you via email.  Thanks!! Remy thanks you too.

UPDATE:  Giveaway closed!  Thanks for entering & for all the birthday wishes for Remy!!!

I would love # 2 Please :-D

Susan said...

Oh--hard decision! First choice would probably be #2 but I'd be happy with either!

Nancy said...

Only a year ago? Doesn't seem possible! I've enjoyed watching his antics. If I win, I'd like the batiks, but the KC fabric would work, too :)

Becky said...

Looking forward to seeing your gift quilts. How lucky for Remy to have found you! Happy Birthday, Remy! Today, my favorite is number 2. Tomorrow, it could be number 1. Take care!

Happy birthday Remy! Hope you get to celebrate in style!

I would love the Kansas Troubles FQs if I should win.

Thanks for letting us celebrate Remy's birthday with you!

Kansas Troubles, definitely. It would be right at home with me! Happy Early Birthday to Mr Remy; they grow up so fast. I still think of my youngest (cat) as a baby, but it's startling to realize that she is four years old. The kitten phase is so cute,I hate to see them grow out of it.

Michelle said...

Awww Happy Birthday Remy!! Time does fly, doesn't it? I was just realizing our cat, Whiskers will be 16 in October. I would choose fabric #2....thanks for some fun prizes!

Nancy, Near Philadelphia said...

sunny said...

Happy happy happy BIRTHDAY Remy! It's hard to believe a year has gone by already. Our kitties just turned 1 last month.

Don't worry about including me in the giveaway. I already have more fabric than the law allows. My husband says if I buy any more, he'll be required to install fire sprinklers.

Stitched With Prayer said...

Hi Gretchen! Wow, I can't believe you have had Remy for a year, where or where does the time go? You know I love all your furry babes, but Remy just pulled at my heartstrings from the day you showed us his very first photo. What a handsome guy he is now...of course there was no question he was going to be handsome and debonaire was there? LOL I can't wait to see your gift quilts. Are you quilting the one buy hand or free motion on your machine? Okay, now about that generous giveaway...Both sets of FQs are beautiful, but given the choice, I would choose the Kansas Troubles, simply because I don't do much with Batiks right now, though I hope to after I play 'catch up' on my UFO's. But if I'm lucky enough to win, I would be delighted with either set, truly. Thanks so very much for the chance to win some yummy quilty treasure and give that cutie...er, handsome gentleman Remy some big birthday hugs and scratches for me. While your at it, give your other furry kids some loves from me too. Big cyber hugs coming to you too...

Happy Birthday to Remy. I'd love to win #1 the Batiks - thanks for sharing.

Louisa said...

Woohoo! 1 year old, the pretty old man. Either would work - I love batiks and I have a plan for a KT quilt or 2. Thanks and Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday to a very handsome one-year-old. I have really enjoyed watching Remy over the course of this past year. If i were chosen as the winner, i would choose either bundle, but would probably prefer bundle two. Thanks for the chance to win, and keep up the great work on your blog.

My baby cousin shares a birthday with Remy, but he will be 2, not one! Happy early birthday to your precious kitty :) If I won I would love the batiks fat quarters. I'm collecting them for a quilting project.

Lori said...

Happy Birthday Mr. Remy! My first choice would be the batiks. Thanks!

Dolores said...

My two little kitties Pixel and Digit would like to wish Remy a very Happy Birthday. They are senior girls and I am so glad that they are still in my life. Those batiks look absolutely dreamy...

Happy Birthday to Remy! I don't know my dog, Rudy's exact birthdate, but he will be one around the same time.
Both fabric groups are awesome, but if I have to pick one, I think I'll go with the Kansas Troubles.
Thanks!

Sherrill said...

Remy's beautiful and Mr. Fang says HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I think I'd lean towards the batiks..thanks for the giveaway!!
