Because Quilters love to help

Friends, I am asking for your help.

You may have heard about this from another social media outlet.  I am telling you this is not a hoax.

My friends' 17-year old daughter ran away December 26th.  Her name is Haley Faith Wilson.  This video was made by her father.  Please watch it as it gives the pertinent information:

Her father has been my friend for a long time.  I want to help him.

Haley may be headed to any of our communities, and I am asking everyone to keep an eye out for her.  If you see her or have any information you can call the APD at 806.378.3038.  You can also contact me and I will pass the information on to the right people.

Please consider reposting or linking back to my post.  Thank you, and Happy New Year!

Happy Giveaway Day!

Good Monday Morning!
Today starts the week of the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day, and I have participated for years because I think it's a lot of fun. 
So if you are here for that, I am glad you are here.

Today I'm giving away 2 things:

The first is a fat quarter bundle.
You can also find this fat quarter bundle in my etsy shop, along with yardage of these fabulous fabrics!

To another lucky winner, I'll send a copy of my Betty quilt pattern, which is a fabulously easy lap quilt pattern made with 12 fat quarters and some white yardage.  You can also purchase this pattern (and others!) in my etsy shop.

And so now I'm going to tell you a little about me.....  

My name is Wendy, and you're visiting my blog, Sewing in the Wendy City.  
I am a used-to-be math professor (who still is, but only online), 
I stay home with my children, and I really, really like to create stuff.
I quilt a lot, I draw, and I write patterns.  I am a chef at Moda Bake Shop.
More recently I have started purchasing fabric to sell with my patterns for quilt kits.

And I am glad you are here!

To enter:
1.  First entry:   Pop over to my etsy store.  Find something you like.  Tell me which item you like best.  Elaborate if you want to.
2.  Second entry:  Become a follower, or tell me that you already are a follower.

I'm going to give these items away to 2 separate winners, and I am willing to ship internationally.

And also, everyone's a winner today.  Use the coupon code CITY15 to receive 15% off any order in my shop during the Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway Days!

Thanks for stopping by, and Merry Christmas to you!
