A Few Quick Questions and a Tease

Okay, I am asking for help again. I would like you to answer some questions for me.

1. Do you enjoy reading mysteries?
2. Do you like themed books? (example -mysteries with food based titles)
3. What do you call a quilt block that looks like this?
I am looking for the block name or names - I want more than one.
4. Do you like giveaways?

And  you are wondering (aren't you?); why am I asking these questions?  
Here it is the teaser!!!!
I am working on two things - one of them will be a giveaway.  The other is a project that I can't tell you about yet.

GerryART said...

hour glass,
yep, I'm wondering why you are asking these particular questions.

I'm hoping that the one thing that will be a giveaway involves me.

Now, then, I'm wondering what kind of a secret project are you working on?????

Also, I've been more or less tracking your comments regarding your two recent scarf creations, I'm thinking the votes or just about evenly shared between the two.

I'll be awaiting your next post, Gene.

1. I love mysteries.
2. I love themed books, particularly if they appear in a series. I grow attached to characters and want to keep reading them. I have read all of the quilt fiction series that I know of, and I've also read Clare Cosi's coffeeshop mystery series, most of Diane Mott Davidson's food based series, a couple of Maggie Sefton and Monica Ferris's series, Emilie Richards' Ministry is Murder get the picture.
3. I call that the Hourglass block.
4. I adore giveaways - both hosting them AND entering them.

Quite the teaser, Gene. I'll be visiting again soon to see what you are up to!

I LOVE reading mysteries, especially food themed ones. (or any themed ones for that matter, cats, quilts, chocolate...)

I call that block an hourglass block. Or is it a quarter square triangle block?

Of course I like giveaways!

You are having waaaaaaaay too much fun!

I've always called this block hourglass.

Miss Hillbilly said...

1) love mysteries as long as there is no smut in them.
2)Sounds interesting...and yes!(curiosity very peaked here.)
3)An hourglass...sounds very mysterious...
4)Most of the time. Sometimes I know that I am over blessed with some things so I bow out so others might win.
Um....what is up...I am impatient. You didn't ask that.

I am learning to like reading some mysteries. I have some quilt themed mystery books in my stack.
I think hourglass is the winner.
I forgot the other questions -
Happy B'day!!!!

1. Not really much for mysteries. I have so little time to read, that I only invest in classics.
2. I don't know if I like themed books. Never really thought about it.
3. Is that an hourglass block? Quarter Square Triangles (QST)?
4. Oh gosh! Who doesn't love a good giveaway. My favorite are supplies or something I can't make myself!
