Getaway Giveaway

 There is a lot to celebrate this weekend!

This is my 506th post. (#500 came and went!)
My blog has 200 amazing followers.
I will be spending the weekend with 60 of my closest quilty friends!


I wish you could all be there with us. Since that is not possible, how about a giveaway?

Leave a comment and I'll select a winner on Monday morning. Your gift will include a treat bag from the weekend (fabric, candy, etc.) and one of my paper pieced lapel pins.


Wishing you all a happy, quilt-filled weekend!

Tina, I hope you have a fabulous weekend - how can you miss, really!

Angie Burrett said...

Congratulations Tina on 506 posts - that is quite an achievement. Hope you have a great weekend away with your special quilting friends - I think we will all wish we could just "drop in" and see what you are sewing and have a cup/glass of something with you and a good old girly gossip - enjoy! x

I just starting reading blogs. It always amazes me how so many people out in this world are quilters. I never even knew anything about quilting until my husband spiked my interest about 2 1/2 years ago. One Of these days I hope to be able to have a circle of friends that quilt. Thanks for the tutorials and the giveaway.

MaryLee said...

Good Morning - I just found your blog and I am delighted with the tutorials since I am still a beginner - a bit more advanced than last year but still ripping out seams and learning from each mistake. The fun of creativity is definitely worth the frustrations. I hope you have a great weekend!!
