fabric giveaway

The fine folks at Connecting Threads saw my post awhile back, and as a thank you sent me some of their Essential PRO Thread. I was shocked that they had seen my post, and even further amazed that they sent me some thread as a thank you. What a pleasant surprise! They also sent me some fabric to pass along to my readers. I have 3 stacks (similar to a layer cake) of Sweet Remembrance fabric to give away. So you know the drill, if you would like to win a stack, leave me a comment here. I'll pick 3 separate winners sometime next week.

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday!

It's great that good things are being seen. When we like something, we tend to tell one or two people, but when we hate it ... we tell 10!

So, imagine the people that you're touching by publishing 'good' posts. :)

And, just for giving your honest opinion .. you win ... and hoorah for your three followers who get to share in your win. :) Of course, I hope that I'm one of the three. What a lovely line of fabric. :)
