Time for a GIVEAWAY!!!

Okay, I am thinking it is time to celebrate and do a GIVEAWAY! I have a plan for a basket full of goodies for one lucky winner. Leave me a comment between August 1 and noon of August 25th. I will draw a lucky winner for the basket of goodies at midnight on the 25th (CST) and will promptly post the name. You will need to check in to see if you have won but you'll have til August 31 to e-mail me your snail mail address so that I can send the basket off to you (the giveaway is open to anyone - U.S. and International - that leaves me a comment).

So what's the celebration? Well, I am having a great deal of fun doing the blogging thing, plus it's my mother's birthday on August 25th - that's her in the picture holding a teacup pincushion I made for her birthday last year, plus many of my friends sent her cards and fabric. She really enjoyed that but can't use anymore fabric, so in honor of her birthday and the fact that she taught me to sew and embroider, I will give away a basket of items drawn from my vintage stash of fabrics and patterns, plus my current stash of fabrics and patterns. So are you wondering what might be in the basket? Well, I will start with a few blocks of feedsack fabric on August 1st, then every day for the next 24 days I will add something new to the basket such as a vintage pattern or two, fabrics, vintage trims, perhaps a special pincushion, a little wool, thread, a tiny kit, etc. etc. etc. It's kind of like a mystery quilt where you don't know what it will be until it's finished, only this will be a "Mystery Basket of Goodies". This could be fun! Be sure to tell your blogging friends to join. The more the merrier!
