Celebrate, Celebrate...

Okay, so here goes our very first journal entry From Us to You. We have felt the need to keep up with our blogging friends for some time now, so here we are. We don't want to be left out of the loop, you know. Living in Montana is far enough from the loop as it is!

Soooo, as a way to celebrate our blog launch, we decided to have a drawing for a little Maw-Bell gift. Oooooh, this is fun already! We gathered one of each of our five books and will pick a winner at the end of August. Just click on the comments link at the end of this blog and leave a comment. Good luck!

I think of Montana as the middle of the loop!!! I would love to have a Maw-Bell gift, but does it have to be little? Here in Montana, we are into big. As in Big Sky, big cowboys, well enough of that train of thought.

Love the bed and the quilt. Keep it up.

Welcome to a whole new world, I too just started a blog last week, love the photo of the bed & gorgeous quilt. It reminded me of my friends childhood " bedroom" She moved her bed outside tithe front porch when she was little & would sleep outside in the summers!
Thanx for the reminder-looking forward to more

Great new Blog! Your Quilt and display are just beautiful. Your designs are one of my favorites. Your pin cushions (cupcakes & birds) are really something. Looking forward to the next things you two come up with.

I got your site from a post you responded to from Rhonda. Love your photo and welcome to blogging. My ultimate career goal is to have an " Elm Creek Quiliters" group/ bed & breakfast. Dont know if you have read the books I referred to but cant wait to keep up with your blog. Happy quilting.

Cousin Rhonda from Idaho said...

Cousins, how fun!!! Your website is wonderful just as I expected it would be!!! I can never decide which quilt is my favorite...and then you come up with something new just as I think I know... Keep up the good work.

I really enjoyed this email and look forward to more. We spent a week once in the Galletin Gateway resort area near Boseman - I spent my days sitting on the rocks reading books by the river while hubby worked. This was before my quilting days began. I can close my eyes and invision English Paper piecing in the sun and tranquility of the Montana countryside.

I so hope I'm the winner of the Maw-Bell gift. Thank you so much and congrats to the winner. He or She will be one happy person.

It was so nice to get your newsletter today. My girlfriend and I planned a day in the Bitterroot and shopping at the Bell Tower. We looked forward to the day of hanging out and gabbing. Just before our outing we found out that you closed your doors. What a huge disappointment. At least we get to see your beautiful designs online. After I send this, I am emailing my friend to share your new website with her. I will miss the beautiful drive to Corvallis, but I am happy for you, Vicky

It doesn't matter where you are on the loop, so long as you keep it spinning - and talented people like Susan and Sally are a huge inspiration! Thanks for the email. I love it that you used the Mansion for your photos!

It was so great receiving your newsletter. I had been wondering what you girls were up to.
Love the look of your new book.
I look forward to keeping up with your blog.
Hope I win.
Keep up the good work

So miss being able to stop at The Tower Quilt shop on my way to Darby. For sure your web site will be a daily visit my me!

Jody said...

Greetings from another part of the Wild, Wild West---Colorado! Your website looks wonderful (I always wonder how the pioneer ladies communicated about their quilting -maybe wait a bit longer for the Pony Express!) Just to let you know that I
am looking forward to taking a sneak peek at your new book-the cover is lovely!

Congratulations on the launching of your new website!

Michelle said...
