Sailboat, FNSI Finish, and a Giveaway

Today's block is simple, but sweet.  I actually like this one and it would make a really cute, but small pillow.


This is an 8-inch block and number 196/366.  It just makes me wish we were at the lake, not in it, but at it. :)



Here is my FNSI finish.  I started this a week ago and it was nice to get the stitching completed, now to finish it (maybe tomorrow?).  The pattern is "You Are My Sunshine" by Country Cottage Needleworks.  I'm going to have to redo the mouth on the sun.  I changed it from the pattern and I need to rework it.  I used to sing this song endlessly to my son when he was little.



Now for the giveaway.  I received my new McCall's Quilting magazine today, and if I renew my subscription, I can give another one-year subscription to a friend.  So, I figured I would give it to one of you.  Leave me a comment about what is your favorite summer vacation, if you don't have one, give me your dream vacation.  I will draw for the subscription on Friday, July 20, and unfortunately this is only available to readers in the United States.  Make sure you check out the Meadowbrook facebook page as more 9-patch blocks are showing up!! :)  Happy Stitching!!  --Kristen

No summer vacation for us this year, but hubby promises to take me to the Caribbean for our fit weddinganniversary, which is in... 2014! Si. Patience is a virtue! Thanks for the chance to win!

My favourite holiday is camping with my husband and 4 girls; although the amount of rain we are having here in UK isn't making me look forward to next weeks trip quite as much as normal!

My favorite summer get-away is to the beach but if a cruise were available, I'd be gone in a minute. Thanks for the opportunity to win the magazine subscription. What a great idea for a giveaway.

My best summer vacations are spent relaxing with my family with some beautiful weather--not this wretched heat we are having right now. Prefer someplace with sand, water, cool breeze.

Wow. What a giveaway. I would love going pretty much anywhere with just my husband but I love taking the kiddos to Disneyland. We love it as much as they do. Totally one of my happiest places on earth.
