Happy Birthday to Me Giveaway

Encouraging Words of the Day:

Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him! ~ Psalm 34:8, NLT

Happy Birthday to Me! I'm celebrating with all my followers by having a giveaway. I've been wanting to start using my stash instead of constantly adding to it so I've pulled 7 fat quarters for my giveaway because I'll be 67 years old. That's a little easier than trying to think of something to sew with them :) and a lot easier than giving away 67 fat quarters although that would certainly thin out my stash. There are 4 turquoise/aqua colored fat quarters from various designers and 3 fat quarters from "1001 Peeps Arabian Nights" by Andover. The Arabian Nights are so pretty but I've never been able to think of anything to make with them so maybe someone else will use them. Also included is a pocket-sized tape measurer, a little tablet for your notes, and a book called "Redwork, Winter Twitterings" which consists of embroidery designs. I sometimes crochet and have added a little dishcloth I made so if you're a follower and interested in any of this and would like to own it, just leave me a comment.

I'll draw a winner on Thursday night, Feb. 27th.

That is all.

Happy Birthday to YOU! I follow you with Feedly. Thanks for the chance in your birthday giveaway. I would use the aqua turquoise fabrics in my Mod-Mod quilt and the darling prints to make totes–Santa Fe is going bag-less at the end of the month and they would get a lot of use and be pretty, too!

HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
I follow you via GFC/Bloglovin. I really like to do embroidery on the things that I make so it would be great to have the book to get ideas from. Thank you so much for the awesome giveaway.

Happy Birthday to you! I had a friend who would add her numbers together, so at 67 she would be 13 years old, she always got a kick out of telling people her age. I am a follower and would love the 1001 Peeps Arabian Nights, I think it would make a perfect pillow for my son.
