Winning/Giveaway/Awards

50 comments
Isn't it fun to win something! It doesn't happen that often so its always very special to be a winner. Jane at Posy had a drawing for these lovely cleaning cloths. They are just darling. And I won one! Yayy. Thanks Jane. I've been a reader of her blog for some time now and I'm an admirer of all she does.

I've been thinking about doing our own give-away for some time now. Next week is the first week in April and to celebrate spring and April I am giving away some quilt kits. I will be picking 1 winner for the full sized April Showers quilt kit and 1 winner for the flag/banner size kit of April Showers/May Flowers. The winners will get kits that will include a pattern and materials/fabric to make the front of the quilts.

This is the larger quilt. The fabrics will be slightly different but this is mostly representative of what it will look like.

This is the small banner. This is called April Showers/May Flowers. The flowers I have to put on the bottom of the quilt are different than this picture, they are better I think.

I'll be using some of these fabrics to make the 2 kits that will be mailed off to 2 of you. I also have some other fabric I may choose from that isn't pictured.
All you have to do to enter the give-away is leave a comment between today and through April 1 - Tuesday of next week. On Wednesday, April 2nd I will name the winners. Tell your friends and spread the word, anyone that leaves a comment in the next 6 days is eligible.

That wonderful T at Purple and Paisley gave us an "I love your blog" award. She's so great. I love her blog, too. And a few weeks ago Rima gave us a "You make my Day" award. Rima leaves such nice comments, she always make my day! Its a good time to combine those two awards and pass them on.

There are so many great blogs out there and I get such sweet comments from so many people its very hard to choose. I award Diane at Out of the Loop Group - she has been a blog reader of mine from the beginning and is so supportive of all our posts. And get this!!! She's having a give-away, too. So run over to Diane 's give-away post and leave a comment and you can be entered in 2 give-aways today. Also to Darlene at Quilting Daze - she does some great work and is also very encouraging, and Anina at Dear Baby Jane - she is working her heart out for all of us following the Dear Jane project. They are all such great bloggers and people and helpful in their own way. They get both awards.
