Blog Hop Party! (That means a giveaway!)

Please note: This giveaway is now closed, but thank you for your interest!


(Don't forget to enter our fabric and patterns giveaway, on our post that introduces Jacquelynne Steves as our newest sponsor! Click here to go and enter!)

Padsworth is so excited to be participating . . . he asked if he could have his picture in this post, so here you go, little buddy!




It's time to party!! It's the Blog Hop Party with Giveaways, organized by Michelle, at the fabulous Quilting Gallery!  Starting tomorrow, (or perhaps late tonight) you can click here to get the list all of the blogs to travel to, and hop to your heart's content!

Bloggers who are part of this hop are hosting giveaways, and we are no exception --- if you look closely at what Padsworth is holding in his little green hands, you will see a cute Moda zipper pouch, and two mini-charm packs. One is Clermont Farms, by Polly Minick and Lauri Simpson for Moda, and the other is Maison de Garance, by French General for Moda.

Padsworth does have great taste.

Here he is after I tried to get him to let go of these so I could write this post . . .


He loosened his grip a little. Not.

Never fear, he loves our followers, and when we pick a winner, he will be hopping for joy and help me package them to ship out to the lucky quilter!

How can you win? You have to enter first. Duh. (Grin)  Leave us a comment and tell us this: if you were a spring flower, which one would you be? Easy Peasy! And yes, we will ship internationally!

Then, hop over to the Quilting Gallery and check out all the other blogs, too!

Love,
