Happy Birthday Giveaway


Words for the day:
For we live by believing and not by seeing.~ 2 Corinthians 5:7, NLT
 
Happy Birthday Giveaway
 Today is my birthday so I’m celebrating with you by hosting my first giveaway!
In this morning’s mail, I received a shipment I had ordered from Connecting Threads.  I ordered fat quarters in stripes and checks since it seems there are SO many floweredy fabrics on the market.  It seems like I’m always looking for something to neutralize the flowers, something besides a solid.  So, I’m sharing 9 striped  and/or checkered fat quarters  and, alright,  one floweredy orange fat quarter,  an Olfa Rotary Refill Blade 45 mm, and a spool of 100% Egyptian Cotton Thread. 

You will have two chances to win this giveaway:
1.  Become a follower of my blog and tell me you’ve done so in a comment.
2.  Blog about this giveaway and come back and leave a comment telling me so.  
     Leave me a link to your blog so I can contact you if you win.

If you have a no-reply blog or do not have a blog, make sure to leave me some way to contact you.  If I can't contact you, you will not win and I will have to choose someone else.  I’ll be using the random selector to choose a winner. 

This giveaway will end on Tuesday, March 8, 2011 at midnight (Mountain Standard Time).  I will announce the winner on Wednesday, March 9, 2011.

I hope you like the giveaway and that I’ll soon be hearing from you.  Good luck!
That is all.

Wow! What a cool birthday giveaway photo! Love the Birthday Balloon and matching ribbon...looks so familiar (tongue in cheek). And since I am your sister I am disqualifying myself from your giveaway but want to let everyone else know that I saw the fabric "up close and personal" and it is really pretty....vibrant colors and nice patterns! So Congratulations to the lucky follower who wins!

Well, happy belated birthday!! I'm so glad I found you - I read about your giveaway on Happy Cottage Quilter's blog. I love the name of your blog - my floor is always covered with Hilachas! AND we just moved to West Texas (Seminole) AND before I moved (from Maine) I took a Hunter's Certification class. I am anxious to learn more about hunting in Texas and to learn how to shoot a crossbow. We have a lot in common! I am now a follower - looking forward to "meeting" you!
