Girls and Giveaways go together!


Let me introduce you to my girls. The top picture is Christine with her little guy. The next picture is Melanie and Beverly standing up, and Jennifer sitting down. The sewing machine and cutting table were smoking at Thanksgiving and I was playing with grand kids. They told me if I put this picture on they were going to delete it but if they know what is good for them they will behave and leave it alone!!!!!!!!!!!
Jennifer is the oldest, she has a degree in food science and works for a potato factory in Idaho, is married to veterinarian and has 3 kids. Christine is next she has a degree in early childhood education and teaches preschool, is married to a pilot and has one kid. Melanie has a degree in economics,is a stay at home mom, is married to a farmer and has 3 kids. Beverly has a degree in chemical engineering, is a stay at home mom, married to a mechanical engineer and has four kids. So there you go. They are all talented and we are going to share those talents with you starting today.

We are going to make this blog and store a family affair. Today the first day of December we are going to offer a muslin mates charm pack from Moda to the first 10 people who order along with free shipping. (sorry but free shipping for the US and Canada only) (these charm packs have a celebration theme, cream and white) Be looking for some free patterns to be given away soon.

We are going to have a giveaway every week of December and this first week of December we are going to giveaway a penguin panel. Just leave a comment and tell us if you like snow or if you are like me and can live with out it. We will choose a winner next Saturday and let you know what the next giveaway will be. Have a great week. It is countdown time......... 24 days and counting.

  3. I'm not a big fan of snow but I love the penguins! Here in Kentucky we only get a little bit of snow, and even less penguins. Enjoyed reading about your family. Apparently you are a smart and talented bunch!

  23. I have loved that Penguin Panel for a while now! I love seeing the snow daily on the mountains that surround me, but I'm grateful that I only see it on the ground at my home for a few days (I live on the West Coast of Canada just north of Seattle).

  24. Snow is pretty to look at, as long as you're inside and warm. But otherwise, I can do without it very happily.
    And, of course, we just moved from Texas to rural Missouri. How dumb am I?!!

  25. I love snow as long as I don't have to drive in it--or HAVE to be out in it. We've only had one good snow so far this year and while it's fun to have the mild weather we're missing the snow.
