Drum Roll Please . . .

Okay, FINALLY, I've taken some pictures and now I'm going to announce my first EVER giveaway!!!  Yay!!  I just realized that my first post was on December 26, 2007.  Wow!  That was a long time ago.  Tomorrow will be 2011.  Yikes!!  Here's wishing everyone a WONDERFUL new year and may all your quilting/creating journeys be filled with excitement and JOY!!!

The giveaway includes: 
  1. Five one yard cuts of assorted fabrics
  2. Six one-half yard cuts of assorted fabrics
  3. Package of 40 basting pins
  4. Set of Bohin Patchwork and Quilting Needles (for handwork)
  5. Set of Bohin Machine Needles (size 75 and 90 or 11 and 14)
  6. Two glitter pens for paper or fabric
If you are interested in this giveaway, please leave me a comment and then rush out and tell all your friends about the giveaway and have them hop on over and leave a comment.  If you blog about it, leave me another comment, etc., etc. . . . Lots of chances to win.  Lots of fabric to give away!!  I'll keep the giveaway open until next Saturday, January 8 (US time) and I'll pick the lucky winner on Sunday January 9.  This giveaway is open to EVERYONE and I'll ship internationally so not a problem, just comment away!! 

Here are a few more pictures of the sketchbook project.  This morning I woke up and I said "hey, don't I have some watercolors around here somewhere?".  And, yes, I did.  So, today I've been experimenting with the watercolors and markers.  I still have a ways to go, but I'm enjoying the ride.




 
This one was painted awhile ago so it is acryllic paint.

Ah, love those fabrics. I'm drooling! Thanks for the chance to win. I'm also jealous of your drawing ability. I tried keeping a journal. While I can write fairly well, drawing is another thing altogether--yuck! Now I just blog and take bad pictures. Happy 2011!
