May Give Away

I have had a busy couple of weeks, it seems that I haven't been home much and I am tired. The weather is really nice today for a change. I have been playing with the grand kids today. My legs hurt, I feel like I have walked to China and back. Sitting at a desk all day doesn't do a body good.

My uncle died last Sunday and the funeral was Thursday. I live to far away and wasn't able to attend the funeral. He was the uncle that I knew the best and it is sad to lose another relative. Out of 10 kids, my mom and one of her sisters (who will be 100 in 2 years) are still around. Happy Mothers Day MOM and Aunt DD.

The May giveaway will start with a book. A Fine Line : Techniques and Inspirations for Creating the Quilting Design [Paperback] by Melody Crust, Heather Waldron Tewell.



Just leave a comment for one entry, blog about it for a second entry, become a follower for a third entry. In celebration of Mothers Day I am going to add more items to the pot so stay tuned for the best is yet to come.

PS: I added Batiks to this giveaway, look above.
PSS: I am also added a Fons and Porter mechanical marking pencil.

  8. Sorry for your loss. I know how that is since I lost both my grandma and grandpa within a matter of a week apart. I was not able to make the funeral as I was out of state due to our family being military. Can't wait to be with them someday again:)

    We, like yourself ,have now only lovely memories, and perhaps one day we will see them again. Hugs to you, Sandy.
