Someone said there is no better time to start than the present,
I shared in my last post that
I am intending to giveaway ten quilts this year and here is the front of #1
and the back of this baby quilt my husband took to Mexico for a friend's first baby.
two quilts for my nieces totally quilted, bound, and sent!
OK, so Sarah likes pink and Lucy likes purple...
turns out Aunt Stephanie (me) should read emails more carefully,
because Lucy likes light blue!
Sarah's second quilt (fourth to be given away) in the box (a quilt that has been sitting on a shelf for a very long time and begged to be used by a little girl) looks like this...
and Aunt Stephanie (me) will be forced (hee-hee) to make another (light blue) quilt!!!
Another quilt patiently waiting to be used and not stored on a shelf is this one...
now happily living with the delightful daughter of son #2's bowling coach! This mom was a wonderful coach through twenty eight official bowling matches and numerous practices...
which paid off because the team is off to the state bowling tournament!
(Did you even know there was a state high school bowling tournament?)
Another action I intend to do this year is have a de-stash giveaway each month.
As January is quickly coming to an end...
here are the choices for this month...
(oops - I promise to adjust the brightness on the camera for next month's giveaway):
cluster of black and whites
second cluster of black and whites
Soiree charm pack
Taza jelly roll
How to win? One son will pick four random numbers based on how many people leave a comment sharing what smell they like best.
Son #1 is reading Diane Ackerman's book A History of the Senses for his first college class, English 101, and I picked it up and fell in love!!
What a wonderful book!
I have only read the part on smell, but I am already becoming more sense aware which totally helps to keep me in the moment - my life goal!
OK, I digress...
leave a comment telling us your favorite smell
become a follower for an extra chance
current followers are hugged dearly and will also get a second chance
share the giveaway with others for a third chance
AND...how about this...if someone you told about this giveaway wins - you will win a yummy yard of fabric!!!
Winners will be picked on the evening (pacific time) Tuesday January 31, 2012
Of course, lovely people from far away places can play too!
