New Year....new challenge....

Happy New Year!  Are you partying tonight?  As you can see we aren't around here.   The retired guy has a bad cold and I am determined not to get it!!  Sew, I thought I'd let you know about something fun we have to kick off the new year!

Andover Fabrics has recently released an entire line of fabric commemorating the extremely popular Downton Abbey television series.  (I have to admit that I was a late comer to Downton Abbey, having *caught up* just in time to be ready for the newest episode the first weekend of January.)  We thought that it might be fun to have a *challenge* to kick off the new season.  Are you up for playing along?  Here are the general contest rules: Beginning on January 2, 2014 an Entry Form and the Downton Abbey challenge fat quarter (seen to the right here) may be purchased for $3.00.  A recognizable portion of the Downton Abbey challenge fat quarter must be included on the front of your project.  Projects must be finished, bound (if applicable), and no more than 72” in circumference.  Projects are not limited to quilts….let your imagination guide you!  (Please keep your entry “anonymous” by covering any type of label or personal identifier.)   Entries must be received by 6:00 p.m. Saturday, March 1, 2014 - sorry, no exceptions.  Entries will then be displayed for two weeks of customer voting, with winners announced Monday, March 17th.  Only one entry per customer is allowed.  Prizes will be: 1st Place - $100 gift certificate; 2nd place - $75 gift certificate; 3rd place - $50 gift certificate; 4th place - $25 gift certificate and a Downton Abbey tote bag for each winner.

Hope you have a lovely New Year's Eve in anticipation of 2014!!
