Welcome to the Sew, Mama, Sew Blog Giveaway!!-Now closed

First, let me say welcome to my visitors from the Sew, Mama, Sew! May Giveaway. I don't have a lot of posts here, because until recently, I've been subjecting my friends over on LJ with my projects. I decided that if I wanted to stay friends, I should find someplace else for those posts!

You may see BookCrossing.com mentioned around here a lot, because that's my second favorite place. There is a link in the sidebar to a page with more information, if you like to read, like to share books, and love Random Acts of Kindness!

Now, on to the giveaway. I'm willing to ship internationally, so everyone can keep reading. I know that's always an important issue.

I am giving you a choice of prizes this time. You can choose between a pair of floral pillowcases or 3 fat quarters.



If you look closely, you will see that the pillowcase isn't finished yet. I have an excuse. I worked 14 hours yesterday, and my dog had surgery today---a 2 hour round trip-made twice, plus I worked. He's fine, but he could use some good thoughts for the next month as he undergoes heartworm treatment. But, I digress. The pillowcases, both of them, will be finished before the giveaway ends.

If you choose the fat quarters, the light polka dot one is actually a mossy green, not as brown as the dots appear.

These things come from a smoke-free house, although, as you probably guessed, it isn't a dog free home.

I will use a random generator to pick the winner on June 1, CST. That way, visitors will have all day on the 31st to enter. Leave a comment, be sure to leave your email so that I can contact you, and, well, welcome, and good luck!!!

Don't forget to head over to Sew,Mama, Sew's site for a list of all of the other participants!!

I'm looking forward to meeting you all!
