In this episode, I remind you of the upcoming Banned Books Week Challenge and give a brief update about my guild's response to the challenge, and I officially (podcast-wise) announce the Scrapitude Mystery Quilt that has already been announced on my blog and in Twitter.

My account of continuing progress on the 9-Patch Pizzazz, but a change of purpose for it; I also announce my winner of the Banned Book Challenge giveaway, give a brief retrospective of hurricane action in these parts, have some shout outs to Aussies, and do some listener feedback.
As I post this episode, the wind is starting to whip and my windowpanes are rattling with the rain. Yes, Hurricane Sandy is starting to move into my area, so I decided to post an episode quick quick before I lose power like so many of my eastern buddies have now done. The good news is, I finally made some progress on quilt projects! The bad news is, it could all come screeching to a halt depending on what happens in the next 24 hours storm-wise. Meanwhile, listen to my updates on my Banned Book Challenge (including a reference to moving the deadline) and my guild's Untouchables Challenge, and some listener feedback, and a bit about peppermint oil. And now I'd best get back to my sewing machine while I can still run it...
I begin with a little Sandy update, plus an announcement of a new giveaway/challenge I'm co-sponsoring with Tanesha of CraftyGardenMom Podcast: The Banned Books Challenge Giveaway. Listen for the details! The fun then continues with another installment in the design series with Jaye--this time, we're talking about shape.

Reminder to Meet at the Waterfall! Also, I talk about my paper-piecing adventures, a new contest, and plans for next week.
First off, I announce the Boxing Day Sew-In on December 26--find out what's going on and who all is involved! Next, it's time to enter in the 2012 Quilty Resolutions Give-Away! We had fun with this last year so I'm doing it again, but with a twist. Listen to this episode for the new guidelines--I'm keeping it focused!
Check out last year's resolutions podcast (Episode 33 In Which We Make Quilty Resolutions) for more information about SMART Goals and how to be successful at working your plan. And by the way, I've since removed the former Resolutions tab that was referenced in episode 33.
Use the online form below to submit your 2012 resolutions (please be sure to listen to today's episode first!). Submissions must be received by January 31, 2012. If, for some reason, the form does not appear below, click here for a direct link.
