Giveaway Revisited and Reinforced


Well, friends, it is Wednesday and while I've heard from Sharon, the winner of the William Morris FQ pack, Mimi has not contacted me to provide her address.  So, as promised, I'm picking a new winner.

The charm pack goes to Quiltmom Anna, who wrote:

Wow Nancy- 1000 posts and so many visitors too. It is easy to see why- I love your blog- I know that when I visit I am coming to visit a lovely lady who cares about others. I also know that you share your thoughts and beliefs and write many thought provoking posts. May you continue to enjoy blogging and celebrate another 1000 posts.


I would choose the French General fabrics- The William Morris ones are probably lovely too.


Paulette of Sweet P Quilting -http://sweetp-paulette.blogspot.com/ I think just used the Rouenneries French General fabrics in her latest quilt- it is gorgeous.


Thanks for the lovely giveaway but most of all, thanks for writing a terrific blog.


Regards,


Anna

Isn't that just lovely?

You'll notice in the picture to the left of the charm pack are some more charms.  These are the squares left from the four French General charm packs that I bought to make the wedding gift quilt (photo someday, really!).  I'd like to give them away, too.

I so enjoy reading your blog. We are of the same generation and I identify with lots of things you blog about. I never win anything but that's okay. I really love the French General lines. They seem to get better with each release. Congratulations on reaching 1000 posts

So, Karin, if you would like these odd FG squares, send me your address, and I'll get them in the mail to you.  And, Anna, please send me your address so I can send your your charm pack.

The fire engine is not being given away.



I thought I should have another giveaway, something purple, perhaps, to celebrate the new laptop.  So I went downstairs to see what might be appropriate.  The closest thing to purple that I found was this little pattern for a cupcake quilt.  At some point, I guess, I thought I was going to make it.  That is no longer the case and so the cupcake quilt pattern is up for give-away.  So, if you need this cupcake pattern, leave me a comment indicating as much.

Rabbits Prefer Chocolate is another pattern I bought, at one time believing I had quilt to make that.  Oh, dear.  That isn't going to happen, either.  If someone out there is a real applique nut and has the interest and patience to do this, please leave a comment saying as much.  And promise to show me a picture of your finished quilt.  If we both live that long!

We'll draw the cupcake and rabbits winners on Saturday.  And, again, the coupe is not a give-away.

I am soooo sad that maybe I won something and totally missed it!! I don't understand how this could have happened, I thought that I was watching carefully (obviously not!) Sniff, sniff

Nancy,

I'm envious of your purple Dell!! When I went to the big box store to buy my new laptop they only had red....well, I'm not a red kinda gal....I'm a purple kinda gall.....so I passed on it. Hmmmpppfffff. I would like either pattern. I know that I wouldn't start either of them until after February because of the bar exam. . But of course, you know, I love your blog!!!

"pented" yours,
Pati aka PurpleDaisee

Nancy, I am totally envious of your purple laptop! I have a full-size tower, and a web book (even if it doesn't have a CD drive) for when I am travelling. I wonder if I dare....

And more giveaways! You are such a generous lady! I'd love to have the cupcake pattern if I am lucky enough to be picked - in fact I nearly bought a pattern at a show back in June. I didn't, because the owner of the stand was having SO much fun, chatting to a couple of women about another show in August and I wasn't willing to wait indefinately to be served!
