April Giveaway

April is here and the warmer weather looks like it may be coming. Maybe it is spring after all. I love it, I do, I do.

I made that sassy skirt for my granddaughter and forgot to take a picture. I asked my daughter to take one of her wearing it and post it for us to see. I can't wait, it turned out so cute.

To celebrate spring I thought I would give away a fat quarter of each of the 5 new Riley Blake prints I just got in.


Leave a comment telling me what you would do with 5 FQ's of spring. You can blog about it or put a link for a second chance. I am thinking I will pick a winner on the 15th of April. Taxes are due, hopefully everyone is getting money back. At least someone will get lucky that day.

  1. Since these are the colors of my spring wardrobe, I'd probably make a cute, new bag to carry instead of the leather one I've been dragging around all winter.
