It’s a new month and all of you PhD students know what that means, right? Time to put September’s project away and start working on your next assignment. I’ll get to that in a minute, but first, a little business to take care of…namely, progress reports from September!
We had three students report in this week with finishes (!) for the month! Melanie brought in a quilt that she’d made for a friend who is ill…I didn’t have my camera available the day she brought the quilt for Show & Tell, but she’ll give us a picture at graduation. Her #3 project was listed as:
3. Me and my sister charm squares quilt – finish quilting, bind and label
Great job finishing the project, Melanie, and I know your friend will cherish the quilt you made for her!
Leiann caught me on a good day camera-wise, and this is the lap quilt she finished piecing:
I know she’s been working on this project a while because it was a fabric collection we had in the shop not long after we opened…six years ago! But it’s done and off to the quilter now, and it is truly beautiful. I remember that I wasn’t especially fond of the fabric collection when we had it, but seeing this project makes me wish I had some of the fabric in my stash! Leiann’s #3 project was listed as:
3. Trip Around the World
Great job, Leiann!
Barb came by with her finished project photographed, but she couldn’t get the pictures downloaded from her camera…so she brought the camera in to show me! A sampler-type project that you’ll get to see at graduation, too! Barb’s #3 Project was listed as:
3. Finish quilting wall hanging from Tallahassee/ quilted and appliqued. Needs to be quilted and finished.
I can’t wait to see this one in person, Barb! Great job…
So three finishes means there are three names in the pot for September’s $25 shop gift certificate. I used the random number generator at random.org, but I couldn’t figure out how to copy and paste the thingy to show you…you’ll just have to take my word for it! The winner of the $25 gift certificate is…..drumroll, please…..Barb Rintamaa! Congratulations, Barb, and great going on finishing September’s project!
Ten “students” registered for the September PhD program, and the winner of the $10 shop gift certificate is….drumroll….Doli Larotunda! Congratulations, Doli!
If you’re reading this blog post and wondering what the heck is this PhD program or if you can’t remember the parameters for the program, you can read my initial post here for all the details. It isn’t too late to sign up, but you must send me an email with your project list to be eligible for the monthly gift certificate giveaways and the graduation ceremony. So go find your five projects and send me the list of project names to email@example.com and get busy on this month’s project.
So the moment you’ve all been waiting for…
