May For Me Bingo (Edited to add bingo card master sheet info)

Sharon of Vrooman's QuiltsTonya of Hillbilly HandiworksMarcia of Marcia's Crafty Sewing & Quilting, and Snoodles at Lily Pad Quilting are four of the most prolific and generous bloggers I know.  They are having a special blog event in May.  The May for Me Celebration will have games, giveaways, and even a Grand Prize donated by Green Fairy Quilts.
I was lucky enough to win a pack of novelty squares at Marcia's blog to start me in the right direction.  I went over to Sharon's blog for the tutorial to make my very own Bingo card and to Tonya's blog to read about the prizes and rules.
These are the charms Marcia sent me.

 This is my Bingo board.

This is my Bingo board with the Master Card listing my objects for the game.

It's not too late to join.  You must link up your Bingo board from April 15th through the 22nd.  If you use Sharon's tutorial, you'll be ready in no time.  All you need is twenty five 2.5 inch charms.  While you are checking out the Bingo tutorial on Sharon's blog, be sure to allow time for a visit because she has lots of wonderful things to see and learn about.

Thank you to everyone who wrote and asked about my daughter's eye problem.  We are optimistic because the blind spot has stayed the same size.  She is scheduled to see the neuro-ophthalmologist on April 23rd.  We hope he will be able to give us some good news.  On the bright side, she was accepted by every graduate school she applied to and was offered a scholarship (not full, but generous) to the university that was her first choice.  I'm already scouting quilt shops near the campus.


  1. Thank you sweetie, for all the shout outs and promotion. Your card looks sweet. Laughed out loud - scouting quilt shops!

  2. I'm joining the Bingo game too.. Have fun!
    Pray for your daughter's eyes problem.

  3. Cute BINGO Card! This is going to be fun!

  4. I am glad that she is still doing ok. How far away is her college of choice?

  5. Congratulations to your daughter! Nice job on the bingo card.

  6. Great Bingo Card, have fun playing along.

  7. Cute fabric that little monkey!! TFS

  8. Your card looks great. I need to clarify a few things for you (to make it easier for me as I am listing all of these by hand!)...

    B-hens will be called at the same time as chickens (but I'll say hen too);card suites will be called as 'cards';

    I--pocket watches will be called as 'watches'; 'smiley face' will be called as a 'smile'

    N--no changes

    G--golf ball will just be 'golf'; kitty cat with butterfly will just be 'cat'; holly leaves and berries will just be 'holly'

    O--purple cat will just be 'cat'; thread spools will just be 'spools'.

    I hope you understand this helps me keep things a little under control since I am logging literally hundreds of little words (by hand!)

    Got my very nice package today. I cannot wait to get this project completed as there is no sewing time until it's done. I can't wait to make a doll quilt or two!


I am interested in what you have to say so please leave a comment.
