Giveaway and Taking Care of Business

As we move closer to the wedding date, everything seems to be moving so fast!  We are very busy and I haven't had time to post...yet, so much is happening.  Last Sunday was my daughter's bridal shower...a beautiful celebration given by our dearest friends and her sisters. 



I also want to send some overdue thanks to Andrea over at KnittyBitties.  
I won a beautiful handmade pair of rose earrings in the Spring Board Creative Collaboration.  I have been remiss in posting my thanks.  


How cute is the packaging! See the roses on the allora card...rose earrings on the end of stems.  How clever is that!  Check out her store for some very cute things.

There is so much more that I could share...the wedding of my daughter's BFF, the Baptism of my nephew's daughter and much more wedding things...but I'll save them for another day.  

Now, if you recall, I mentioned that my 100th post was the very same post as my post for Giveaway Days hosted by Sew Mama Sew.  I didn't want my 100th post giveaway to be the same so I postponed it until after the Giveaway Days were over.  Then I received some HAPPY news from Madame Samm over at Sew We Quilt that my daughter's wedding quilt was chosen to be on the June banner. So I posted about that here and let that amazing news sink in before...

I'm hosting my 100th post giveaway! 
I have put together a few things that I hope you will like.  


There is a Schnibbles pattern (Hot Cross), a fat quarter of this cute polka dotted fabric, some coordinating ricrac, a pair of cute buttons, 3 skeins of embroidery thread, and a teacup pin cushion.  

If you would like to win my giveaway...
leave me a comment on this post.  Since June is my birthday month, tell me your birthday month in your comment.  
If you would like a second chance to win, become a follower of my blog and leave me a separate comment.  If you are already a follower, tell me so in your second comment.  
I really appreciate all your comments and encouragement.

I will leave this giveaway open until Monday, June 20th...my birthday!
(10pm my local time) Then I will randomly select a winner.
Please be sure to leave a way for me to contact you should you win.  If I can not contact you, I will need to select a new winner. Good Luck!

  8. Happy Birthday for the 20th Dawn! I am an Easter April baby, has been interesting having birthdays fall over the religious Easter period as a kid! Now, as an adult, it means our daughter is usually in school holidays so we can do something as a family (hubby is also an April baby). I like the look of that pattern... :-)
