First Day of Spring
I have been doing a little spring cleaning and re-arranging this week in my sewing room. It is amazing how much "stash" one can accumulate and in no time at all!! I am notorious for being the "must have it" kind of shopper/collector; especially when it comes to fabric, vintage items, and quilt kits/patterns.

Since posting my blog a week ago, I have come across and participated in several "give aways" that have been posted and all have been very generous and nice items (such a thoughtful gesture of sharing). While re-arranging my fabric shelves, I came across a few kits, that for some reason or another, I will not be using and thought I would host a give away and share with others too; surely another quilter would enjoy them!

In celebration of the First Day of Spring (20Mar09), I will be hosting my first (of several) drawing giveaways. This one is for a 16 inch pillow kit. The kit is from the 2006 Show Me Safari Shop Hop, Design by Liberty Homestead. The kit includes instructions to make the pillow, pink and green hand dyed cottons by Liberty Homestead, pillow backing, and three mother of pearl buttons.

If you would like your name in the drawing, all you need to do is leave a comment and share with me 1 or 2 of your favorite quilting blogs/sites (sites that are must haves on every quilters "go to" list) and why they are your favorite. I will draw a name and announce the winner on Sunday, March 22 @4pm. Good luck to all!!

Two of the BEST sites around are for Primitive Gatherings in Menasha, Wisconsin, and the other is for Country Loft in California. Great shops! Can get pretty much anything you need, and they have great customer service.

Thanks for the chance to win, you are being very generous.

Polka Dot Pinapple is one of my favorite blogs. She makes the cutest stuff using lots of yo-yos and she has great tutorials.

I also love Messy Karen's blog, lots of inspiration and great photos!

There are so many great quilting blogs out there, so many talented quilters who love to share.
