WHY NOT A GIVE- AWAY?

As I mentioned in a previous post, I am participating in a blog hop, just for fun.  Want to join me?  Sure, why not?  Each blog you visit will have something they are giving away.  There will be chances to win some wonderful things.  The "blog party" button on the right, will be updated Dec. 10 with all the links to the participating blogs.  All you will have to do is click on one to go and check them out. While you are there, you can enter to win that give-away. Simple. 

Starting Dec. 9th you can leave a comment on this post for a chance to win a copy of "studios", a pattern, and  a pillow cover (minus the pillow form) with a bazillion french knots. Depending on how full the envelope is, I may just sweeten the pot a bit. This is just a little "thank-you" for your interest in what I do and for all your encouraging comments.  



For those of you who want to comment but don't have a blogger account, you still can by selecting the "anonymous" button and following the instructions.  Just be sure to leave me a name and an e-mail address so I can get back to you : )

Have fun hopping around all the sites.  See you back here on the 9th. The comments will be open until the 17th, then I will randomly choose a winner ; )

Thanks to Michele for putting this on.

Are those french knots or punch needle on the pillow? Thanks for the give away! And PS - moms of little ones have the same excuse for not sewing, although mine is usually strawberries and whip cream.

To receive such a Christmas package is one to treasure and cherish. We all can't be winners but I'm sure you will make one of us smile with your warmth and geneerousity. I wwish you a Merry Christmas and Hally New Year.
