Several years ago, the Wild One bought some patterns for me from Lynda Hall of Primitive Pieces by Lynda as a Christmas gift. Every quarter, Lynda has a drawing from all the names of people that had bought patterns from her during that quarter...........and the Wild One won! My gift was a hand-made pincushion by Lynda!
What made it so special is that Lynda is allergic to wool so she had to take extra care. I really appreciate her doing that just for little old me.
Lynda also has a blog now. If you have never visited her blog or website, you need to go. Besides quilting and designing prim patterns, she has a wonderful prim house. There are pictures on just about every page of her website and bunches if you click on the "Telegraph Office" tab.
Lynda has also organized a "block party" for the last two years to raise money to fight Ovarian/Breast Cancer. I participated this past year. We had enough blocks to make 4 quilts that were auctioned off. Here is just one of them. To see them all, go to the "Box Lunch Social" page of her website.
Hopefully, she will have another Block Party in 2010.
