Quilting Gallery Blog Hop and Giveaway!


Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways

This Giveaway is now closed

I’m so excited to be participating in this blog hop.  I love hosting giveaways.  I’m not going to take up a lot of time telling you about me and my blog.  If you want to know you can read my about me page.  I will say though that I love quilting and many forms of needle work and I started this so that I could share that love and find other people like that.  So thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you will want to come back again.

Now for the fun part.  Since I’m loving hand stitching right now I wanted to share it.  I’m giving an embroidery package.  It includes the book Stitchin’ Retro, 2 towels ready to be embroidered, 10 skeins of DMC floss, a pair of embroidery scissors, and one of my favorite tools a frixion pen.  I’m going to make this an easy giveaway.  No hoops.  I would appreciate it if you follow my blog if you like it but all you need to do to enter is leave a comment.  Tell me about one of your favorite projects or just something you are working on right now.  This giveaway will be open until Midnight March 23rd.  I will draw and post a winner March 24th.  The winner will also be notified via email.

Also be sure to follow this link http://quiltinggallery.com/quilters-fun/quilters-blog-hop-party/ to visit other blogs participating.

I also wanted to share a drawing that my favorite embroidery store http://www.embroidery.com is having.  They are giving away a $50 gift certificate.  All you have to do to enter is to like their facebook page.  They will be drawing for the certificate on April 3rd.  If you like their page and come back and let me know I will give you an extra giveaway entry but it isn’t required.
