MY FIRST GIVEAWAY


Hello friends, hope you are having a wonderful evening. I have decided to post my first giveaway tonight. It is for the new pattern, Live Laugh Love, from La-D-Da, one of my favorite designers, along with three glorious colors of French silk, hand-dyed Gloriana thread, a nice piece of 28 ct linen, and a pack of #26 tapestry needles. Everything you need to start on a fun new project. The catch is simply this....leave a comment on this post only and post a link on your blog telling about this giveaway. I will leave this giveaway open for comments thru Sunday, July 19th, 2009. I will have my son draw a name to find out who the lucky winner will be. I will post the winner on July 20th. I will also have a mystery prize for a second lucky winner. Good Luck!! I will be checking out your blogs, and remember everyone is eligible to enter as long as you follow the rules.
