Giveaway Party

I've been thinking that it's about time for another giveaway.  It's been a while since my last, and there are so many reasons to celebrate: I have lots of wonderful followers, my blog has reached over 150 votes on Picket Fence, and I have well over 250 posts.  
And, on a personal note, I have been keeping up with my lenten plans....the NICU gowns are coming along beautifully and I may even exceed my own expectations!  Yes, it's time for a party!  That said, let's plan one.  


Quilting Gallery blog hop party
Just as I was having these giving thoughts, I discovered that the Quilting Gallery is planning a blog hop party with giveaways!  Now, you know, I had to get on that wagon and hop a ride.  We will follow the rules, just cause I do that when possible.  So here they are


  • blog hop and giveaways begin on March 17
  • everything ends on March 23
  • easy-peasy entry (just leave a comment on this page)
  • international entries welcome
  • hop back to Quilting Gallery to enter other giveaways (that's the party part) 
So what shall we give?  I dove into the studio and found a few goodies that I think you may like: 
  • two vintage patterns
  • a hand-made satin flower (for your hair)

  • a trio of purse accessories (book cover, kleenex holder and card holder)

  • one of my sewing kits filled with all the basic sewing needs, except scissors.

    If you like these items, you could win.  All you have to do is leave a comment.  I'll determine the winner on March 23rd and post it once I've contacted the winner.  And don't forget to go to Quilting Gallery to visit other blogs who are having a party!  I can barely wait till Saturday to begin!


    Giveaway is closed.....and we have a winner!
    #23 Linda V.  I've sent her an email and will let everyone know when she replies!  Thanks to all who participated.....


    Happy Quilting, 
    Mary

    Thanks for a wonderful giveaway! I just had to Google to see where Evergreen, LA is located. My husband grew up in Pointe Coupee parish (Lettsworth). I grew up in Lafayette, but we now live in Atlanta. It's always fun discovering Louisiana quilters. Have a wonderful week!

    Sandra said...

    What a wonderful assortment of such thoughtful goodies. Now I know that every quilter would want this giveaway. Too bad. You will make a quilter very happy. I have had fun on your blog. I have even downloaded your sausage and chicken gumbo. We have snow here in Sonora,CA and this sounds so good. Thank you. I will be spending the rest of my day entering all the giveaways on the Blog Hop Party, hoping to win - something, anything.
