sunshine and a giveaway

Well, winter has finally grown into spring.  Although the trees are not fully leaved out, many are full of buds and small leaves or are blooming.  Daffodils are blooming and we went from dry crunchy brown yards last week to "do I bale it or mow it?" grass because it's been raining and 80 degrees and was too wet to mow this week.  Now is the super busy time at work.  Amazing the change in just one week.
Anyway................
I've been working on these snowmen (seen in previous posts) and I bought fabric to set the two quilts together, but it's just not what I want.  Soooooooooooooooo,
I am going to give it away.................
along with the redwork snowball pattern with 16-6.5" blocks
to two people. 




The drawing will be held April 30th, one person will get 3 yards of the Thimbleberries Santa Town blue fabric shown above, the snowball pattern and a mystery gift, and the other will get 3 yards of the Thimbleberries Santa Town red fabric with a snowball pattern and a mystery gift. 

Simply leave a comment ( I love comments!) and a color preference for one chance, become a follower for two chances, mention the giveaway on your blog for three chances,  link it to your blog for four chances.  The first 10 people get an extra chance.  Chances/Names will go into a drawing.  The first name out gets their choice of color, sorry second draw, you get the remaining fabric choice.  If you're not a regular blogger, send me your email address so I can notify you if you win.  Good luck!  Going home to finish a gift for a new blog friend.  Talk to you tomorrow.

just added: to those of you leaving "no reply" comments, Good luck and thanks for playing! If you just can't stand to wait you may order the complete pattern or individuals from one of the stores in the "about me" paragraph.  They both have them.  There are also some freebies at the link at the bottom of my sidebar.

UPDATE:Fo those of you are emailing me about buying the snowball patterns individually or the set, you will have to CALL the stores in the "about me paragraph", neither of them have the patterns on the web page yet. Sorry!
I could not email some of you back, because you have a "no reply"email address. Guess what, it's going to be hard (impossible) to notify you "noreply" people if you win too!
