My Two Year Blogiversary Giveaway and other stuff....

Hi Everyone,

Two years do you believe? I don't... I never thought I would have anyone want to read what I had to say that is for sure!

So here is the giveaway stuff... A Little Apples Jelly Roll

Modern Log Cabin Quilting Book (forgive me Amazon for stealing your pic since I have teenagers piled in the room where the camera is)


A fat quarter pack of Taza in the pink and red colorway

And a fat quarter pack of Heirloom in Ruby  (because I am on a pink and red roll today)

Rules for the giveaway:
Leave a comment for each of these things seperately if you do them.

1. Follow me or let me know that you do already (we haven't done this in a while)
2. Alert the media: blog, tweet, facebook...do what you do to let others know about the giveaway

That's it. I will close this giveaway on Friday 8/5 at midnight and announce the winner on Saturday along with the winners of last weeks Friday giveaway.

Now just one or two more things... Taza is in and it is totally gorgeous:

(see above for the red colorway)


Here is the Blue and Grey

Here is the Yellow and Aqua.

Terrain and Little Apples Pre-cuts are in the shop I only bought a very small amount so if you want them you will need to buy them soon.

Thanks for making my last two years in blogdom such a pleasure. Thanks for all of your friendships and all of the encouragement you have sent me. I am so grateful for you all.

Talk Soon!
