Celebrating the Quilt Holidays ~ Count Your Buttons Day

Did you know that all year long there are special days set aside on the calendar to commemorate  quilts, quilting, quilters and quilt-related activities? The are known as the Quilt Holidays and here at Whimzie Quiltz we celebrate each one… Let’s party!

As October 21st got closer and closer, I was thinking Count Your Buttons Day sure seems like a fun quilt holiday to celebrate. Then I realized you actually have to count those silly little things! And when you have as many as I do, it can take quite a while.

Still, since I did take the time to count them, I thought I’d do a little contest over on Facebook to see in anyone can guess how many pink and orange buttons I own.

The person who guesses closest (or a random winner if more than one person gets it right) will receive this sarcastic “Buttons are the only thing keeping shit together around here” wine wrap! (Bottle of Rosé not included 😦 unfortunately)

And as a thank you for reading my blog, here’s a hint ~

there’s more than 1200, but less than 1300.

The winner will be announced in a Facebook post on the morning of October 22, 2019. Good luck guessing!

I’m not sure I’ve actually made my bed since I moved out of my parents house 30+ years ago, but there’s a holiday for those who do 😀 Enjoy?

Yeah, I have NO idea how one celebrates Thread the Needle Day exactly, so I’m dying to know if there’s something special you are doing to observe today… share your needle-threading commemorative activities in the comments!

sewingmachinedayToday is a pretty important quilting holiday, Sewing Machine Day, and I’d like to give a special shout out to all 4 of my sewing machines –

:: my Janome Memory Craft 6500, a dream machine, my constant companion since I started Whimzie Quiltz

:: my Kenmore 385, the reliable back up machine that’s been there for me through a few stressful moments

:: my Handiquilter Avanti18, the longarm machine that’s let me take my quilting to a whole new level

and

:: my Janome Memory Craft 500E, my newest baby, that’s added amazing embroidery to my repertoire

Happy Sewing Machine Day to my much-loved machines and to all the hardworking sewing machines out there that don’t get recognition for the joy they bring to our lives.

Thanks for all the stitches!
