    Who Wants A Freebie?

    (Keep the comments coming. I'm throwing in another set just for fun in a totally random drawing!)

    I've decided that just for the heck of it that I would offer up a freebie. I might even make it a monthly thing. So for October, let's say, I'm offering this:

    But what is THIS? you ask. Well, it's a bundle of 5 fat quarters of quilting fabric. How do I get my HANDS on it? you ask.

    It's SEW simple! Just leave me a comment telling me you want it. I'll accept takers until midnight on October 15th. When I get moving around on the 16th, I'll put all 26 letters of the alphabet into a 'hat' and draw 1 out. The first "NAME" in the comments section beginning with that letter will win. Easy to do, very fair, and easy to verify!

    I'll post the winner to my blog by the end of the day. If I have an email address for you, I'll contact you. Otherwise, just check back to see if you've won. As soon as I get an address, I'll ship it out. I'll even pay the postage. And I WILL ship to an International address, so everyone can play!

    I hope you will join in on the fun. Until next time...Happy Needling!!!

    WOW, what a neat post to run across. Funny thing is I am in the planning stages of my own 'freebie' which I hope to post about by the end of the week.

    I'd love to play in yours and hope you'll think about playing in mine.

    Don't know how I've missed your blog along the subbed now thru bloglines. Since all my stash is in storage and my hope has dimmed of seeing it anytime soon, I could probably use some Spring/Gardening fabrics! LOL!
