We are at it again... This is one you don't want to miss out on! Are you ready for some Blog Candy? Forgotten Scraps and Grandma's Pearl (that's me) are working together with our sponsor, Little Miss Muffet Stamps, to bring you up to FIVE different Blog Candies with many chances to win! We also have some fabulous items that have been donated by Make it Crafty. Thank you Zoe for your stamps and beautiful chipboard embellishments!

Little Miss Muffet Stamps

What you need to do is become a follower of all FOUR blogs. Here is the first lot of blog candy you can win from this site. Great Hu? Yes, one lucky winner will get all this... Make sure to read to the bottom to see more prizes!


Now for the Rules

This blog candy will remain open until Wednesday, May 11 at 10:00 pm Central time. Winners will be announced on May 12 and included with that week's challenge winners at Little Miss Muffet Challenges.

UPDATE: Add either of the Blog Candy badges to your blog layout and enter your name into the linking pool for an additional time! (Add "Candy Bar" to your name or something similar.) Just remember to link up to a different card from you blog because the InLinkz pool doesn't allow duplicate URLs.

700 Followers on Grandma's Peal Goal Details

And before you go... look at the second lot of blog candy! If THIS blog reaches a goal of 700 Followers then this will go out to a second lucky winner!!

So grab the ginormous badge from the sidebar, or even the "candy bar" at the top, and spread the word! The more people that follow, the more loot to win!! Plus there is some special prizes available only at the Little Miss Muffet Challenges blog.



Free Digis Details

BUT WAIT...THERE"S MORE!!! For every increase of 100 Followers on Each site, Little Miss Muffet Stamps will have a drawing for TWO free digis!! For example, on THIS blog, one lucky participant will be selected from the linking pool every time the Followers count hits a 100 mark. (So the first mark is less than 67 away!!) Be sure to become a Follower on all four of these blogs...
Little Miss Muffet Stamps

When EACH blog hits their 100 Followers mark then one radom winner will be selected from the linking pool to recieve two free digis. So if all four blogs increase at the same time there will be FOUR winners...and so on! All winners will be announced on Thursday in the winners post at Little Miss Muffet Challenges.

piecing layout #1



While we wait for a computer program to work, I want to share Common Bed Sizes with you:

Crib 23" X46"
Youth 32" X 66"
Twin 39" X 75"
Double 54" X 75"
Queen 60" X 80"
King 78" X 80"
California King 72" X 84"

And Decimal to Inch Converions:

.125 = 1/8"
.25 = 1/4"
.375 = 3/8"
.50 = 1/2"
.625 = 5/8"
.75 = 3/4"
.875 = 7/8"
1.00 = 1"

We can't get away from the math, but if we print it out, write it down and put it with our quilting supplies, it will be easy to work with. We still have a lot more ahead of us but this is going to be it for this time. I will have my scanner up and running for next time.
Be sure to write any comments or question you mite have with the comment bar and share with us any blocks you have made, using Mr. Link.

Thank you for looking and have a GREAT DAY QUILTING!
