I noticed that over night I went from 18 followers to 21 followers. Thanks so much!! I was thinking the other day that if when I got to 20 followers I would do a give away. What you think? Want to win something? What could I dig out to give away?
I went digging in my stash and I came up with these cute Safari fat Quarters. There are 5 of them. I have had these sitting in my stash ever since I started quilting. My daughters first quilt she made used these.
These and many other fat quarters were purchased for .99 when one of the two quilt shops closed down. This is how I built my stash at the beginning, thanks to specials she was having. I look at my fat quarters now and remember the fun of digging through the fabrics looking for things to use. It was hard for me because I was just learning to put fabrics together to use and learning to quilt all on my own. This was 2 months after my husband had double bypass surgery and he was off of work for 4 months. He was driving me crazy and I needed an outlet. Funny thing is I had not touched a sewing machine since I was a young child. I think I was 8 and Mom helped me make an apron...LOL. Remember that project Mom???
Sooooo in honor of a 3 year anniversary of my Husbands successful heart surgery and so many wonderful people following my blog already, I am giving this fabric away. I think it is appropriate that I choose to do this on Valentines Day!!
Leave me a comment and share with me something wonderful about your true love and any quilty things you might have made for them. I will do the drawing on Friday, February 17th!!
Thank you again everyone for making this blog thing worth it!!
