I ALMOST FORGOT ! and a GIVE-AWAY


edited: give-away now closed

I'm not sure how I did it, but somehow I missed my 1 year blog anniversary.  I re-started this little blog on July 24 of last year, after my previous site had been hacked twice.  So far, I have had no trouble with blogger. Hooray!

Well, what's a birthday without presents !  I am offering up 5 quarter meter cuts of black and white prints.  These could work up into something fun, maybe with a pop of lime green or red?


Nothing to do but leave a comment on this post, and I will let the random number generator choose someone on Saturday.






also, this is # 31 of the hex-a-thon.  21 more to go.





I should really be sewing some of these together............

Thanks so much for making this lots of fun over the past year (and a week)

Good luck  : )
