As of early yesterday morning my oldest sister Tina still didn't know about my humble little blog. For some really odd reason she never got the 2 emails that I sent to her. That has never happened before! So while I was getting ready to head out the door I forwarded it to her work email. She called me immediately! No surprise there. :) Just as I expected, her first thought was that I am sick and of course she wouldn't keep that secret to herself, but then she reread the email and realized that she was way, WAY off base. It did say "it is fun" after all. She made a solemn, pinkie swear promise not to tell any of the rest of the family so I sent her the link, first to the initial post about this little ongoing saga, then the follow up one and then she took a bit more look around. She even commented!
No she isn't mad at me and I can't help but chuckle at the fact that I was trying to share this place with her and she wasn't getting my emails that were meant to clue her in. At least she knows now and she is here. In fact she became follower number 300!
Since I've said in the past that I would have a giveaway when I reached that milestone, I'm certainly not going to go back on that promise now. What can you win you ask? Well....I'm offering up your very own copy of this book:
5-10-15+ Fat Quarters from House of White Birch. It is chock full of great quilt patterns and ideas to make your projects using precuts shine. How about a pretty keeper for your glasses?
I hope I don't need one of these some day.
This table runner would look great in any combo of fabrics.
Need a nice tote bag? This book gives you all the instructions to make one of your own.
I could see this in done different color ways.
And you had to know that this Chinese Lantern one would catch my eye.
For your chance at winning all you have to do is:
1) Leave me one comment (one comment only please, duplicates will be deleted) and tell me:
Do you like or not like Peeps and if you do, do you prefer them fresh or dried out and hard as a rock? It is Easter season after all and what better question to ask than something appropriate for the time of the year.
2) Since this is to celebrate my 300 followers milestone, you must be a follower to be entered into the drawing.
Entries will remain open until Noon EST on Friday March 15th and I'll annouce the winner that afternoon or on Saturday. Please remember to leave your email address if you are a No Reply Blogger so that I can contact you. Better yet, fix that nasty problem once and for all and help all of us who want to help you win. Info on how to do that can be found in this post.
Good luck to one and all! I've gotta run for now. This morning I'm going in to work with 21 preschoolers on our secret school silent auction fundraiser quilt (a secret to the school families but won't be a secret here) and then I have to work on getting more things ready for the big upcoming kids consignment sale. Have a great day where ever you are!
