The Giveaway (a week late)

I said in my last post that I would have a giveaway and then totally dropped the ball on that one.
Things have been crazy here. School started and my parents had to come home from their mission due to health issues (don't worry they are on the mend). Good Looking and I are fixing up their new apartment. Blah blah blah and so forth. Since Baby Sister started preschool today I finally have a minute. Speaking of Baby Sister she showed no fear going to school, I think she was irritated that I was there.

She has got to be the cutest one there though.

So here is my giveaway, and the story behind it.
I have what I call my tool belt.
Good looking no matter what small job he his doing he will strap on his tool belt. I am the same way when ever I am sewing even if it is a two second job I am lost with out my "tool belt". It is essentially a lanyard that holds my nippers. If Good Looking is wanting me to do something while I am sewing I say
"Sorry, I have my tool belt on, I am busy".

I first started using one when I was working in the sweat shops.
I found I was faster if I didn't have to look for my nippers. Since then I have found that once I set them down they are lost. Even if I don't have them on, and thinking that I can sew two seconds with out it I find myself grabbing my chest trying to find it. Something that my friend DJ thinks is hilarious. 

I figured if you were going to be nice enough to vote for my quilt you might like one for yourself.
