patchwork obsession: part 22


stacked coins quilted purse

I have been blogging for one year (and five days) now. Woo-hoo. I don't even want to total all the time I have spent here in the past year, but it's been great!

So that means it's giveaway time again.

Leave me a comment and include your favorite color (just because I think it would be fun to know) and I will enter you into a drawing for this purse. (It's much cuter in person, trust me.) I will draw a name sometime on Sunday morning, November 11th.

If none of you comment, I wouldn't be heartbroken, because I love this purse so much I really want to keep it for myself! ;)

Thanks for reading.

My favorite color is usually a toss-up between green and blue. Although, pink is fast becoming a favorite.

Great purse -- count me in on the drawing too. Favorite color these days is pink. Which is odd, as I used to dislike the color. Hmmmmmmm...

How could you miss with those perky pink flowers? I wouldn't blame you one bit for wanting to hang on to that bag...or is it "left holding the bag"? Hee hee...good job, well done! I certainly enjoy all that you share and appreciate your dedication to your fellow quilters. I leave feeling inspired. :)
