One more week!

There is only one more week of voting left!  Where has the time gone??  I mean 6 months ago I had entered Spirit of Hope for the first round of voting.  Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would have made that first round.  Now, here I am in the final challenge and I still cannot believe I am even partaking in something this big!  The prize package is totally out of this world!!  Check it out for yourself...scroll down the page to   McCall's Quilting Contest

Blue Suede by Shirley Jobson
The last Canadian in the challenge and I'm having the time of my life!  How else can you top that?  Winning the second round (See .. I won!!) was a huge win against the caliber of designers I was up against, and again NEVER would I have ever dreamed of winning it!  Honestly... I even said to my hubby (my Martha) that I knew I wouldn't be voted in to stay in the final challenge and I was okay with that.  Boy was I wrong - I won it!

I have never been an Elvis fan, but did you know that the song Blue Suede Shoes was actually written by Carl Perkins and notably covered by Elvis Presley?   You really have to read up on this song... it really is quite amazing actually.  Blue Suede Shoes

Is it all a dream?  Yes, this really feels like a dream and one I don't want to wake up from - I'm having too much fun!! LOL  But either way, next Tuesday is the last day of voting. If this gets your feet taping, singing the song or just makes you happy... please vote for it... Vote for me if Blue Suede makes you happy!
I'm happy to say that I have made some really great friends during this challenge and I do wish everyone of the contestants all the very best come next Tuesday!


Elvis Presley Blue Suede Shoes Lyrics

(Words and music by Carl Perkins)
Well, it's one for the money,
Two for the show,
Three to get ready,
Now go, cat, go.

But don't you step on my blue suede shoes.

You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes.

Well, you can knock me down,

Step in my face,
Slander my name
All over the place.

Do anything that you want to do, but uh-uh,
Honey, lay off of my shoes
Don't you step on my blue suede shoes.
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes.

You can burn my house,

Steal my car,
Drink my liquor
From an old fruitjar.

Do anything that you want to do, but uh-uh,

Honey, lay off of my shoes
Don't you step on my blue suede shoes.
You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes.

Well, it's one for the money,

Two for the show,
Three to get ready,
Now go, cat, go.

But don't you step on my blue suede shoes.

You can do anything but lay off of my blue suede shoes.


Keeping you in stitches and thanks for voting,
Choux
