Quilters' Blog Hop Giveaway

Encouraging Words of the Day:

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer. ~ Psalm 19:14, NLT



We're driving back to El Paso as you're reading this. Well, maybe. That is, maybe you're reading this because I've typed this up on Blogsy and scheduled it to post while we're driving back to El Paso so you're only reading this if I did it correctly. On second thought, maybe I should just post it before leaving on our trip at 8:00 am, in which case, you are still reading this. Or not. If you're not reading this, then nevermind but I'm babbling.

What I really want to tell you is that I'm having a giveaway along with many others who are participating in the Quilt Gallery's "Celebrate Back-to-School Days Quilters' Blog Hop. It starts on August 27th. Just look for the logo on everyone's blog. I have it posted on the left side of my blog also.



And what do I have to offer? Well I have a pretty 20-piece Japanese charm pack that I bought at Connecting Threads. It's called "Matsuri." I'll also include a 1,200 yard roll of "Essential" thread, color is Parchment and a 100 piece package of 1-inch hexagon paper shapes.

This giveaway is for my followers so all you have to do is be a follower and let me know in a comment. I will ship internationally. Ends September 3rd. Good luck!

That is all.
