Q2 FAL Sponsors, link your Q2 lists by Monday midnight

When Rhonda from Quilter in the Gap asked me to host the 2013 Finish - A - Long, I wondered if very many people would join in. Clearly that was not necessary - there were 357 finishes linked up! And as I am writing this post on Sunday morning, there are already 130 Q2 FAL lists linked.

In case you are still wondering if you should join us for Q2, today I am going to tell you about the generous sponsors that we have for the Q2 finishes. I hope that you will support our sponsors over the quarter and if you have a chance, thank them for supporting the FAL. It just makes finishing that little bit more fun knowing that at the end there will be an entry for each finish into the random draw to win all these wonderful prizes.

By the way, I recommend each and every one of these wonderful sponsors to you for your fabric shopping. I have shopped at all of them but one - and I will be getting my order in there very soon - and each of their service and selection is excellent. And remember, I am in Canada, so all but one of our sponsors ships internationally to me without any difficulties. 

I also want to again thank our tutorial writers for taking their time to create such inspiring and helpful tutorials for us. If you missed any or want to check them out again, you can find the tutorials by clicking the tutorial name:

So remember that you have until midnight MST, Monday April 15, 2013 to link up your Q2 list - you can link your blog post or flickr picture(s). You must link up your list to qualify for the prizes. And don't forget to join our flickr group and post your progress throughout the quarter.

Again!!, about 4". And I am in the south of  Alberta too. #notgoinghometoday

I have no new sewing pictures for you as I have been away from home for the last week and will be staying put until at least Monday as now a new snow storm has hit. That picture was the snow on my car as I cleared it to go to grab a coffee this morning. Now I am using the day today to catch up on my blogging homework - this post, checking off the Q1 finishes so I can award the prizes, and catching up with blog reading. 

If I have not commented on your blog recently, it is just because I have been very busy on a new project this week, please forgive me and I hope to be back to reading and commenting when I get home, which will be whenever this snow stops and the highways clear for my 6 hour road trip home.
