Sometimes we have that dark cloud that follows us around, which is usually the case for me and sometimes you just have one of those weeks where you are surprised by good fortune.
I guess in my case, it is the adage, is the glass half full or half empty?
I have been sick with a flu for over a week, so stuck at home and I am getting cabin fever. On the other side, I have won three contests which have given me a pick me up, which is much needed.
So, I think it is time I have a contest and offer my fellow bloggers, readers and have no idea who you are visitors;) I do enjoy new visitors though and I do check out your blogs. I also enjoy comments, good or bad and love feedback. So, without further rambling, here is what I am giving away this week.
A copy of Lynette Anderson's newest book, "A Gathering of Crows". This is a signed copy that features quilting designs by Lynette; a quilt, a tote, as well as other quilted goodies. And.... there are two designs that I worked up in punch for her, using her designs. So, if you love to quilt, sew and punch, this would be a great prize for you.
Now here is the catch, lol. You have to go to Lynette's site and look for the new punch patterns that she has published now. You can find them now, on the first pages of her blog, but you may have to hit more blogs to find them, later in the week. Then tell me in this comment section what one you like the best and why. I really do love feedback and it will help lynette and I, in future designs.
The contest will end on Sunday, October 25. Leave your comments here and I will draw a name and announce the winner Sunday night. Hopefully I can brighten someone else's day:) I am sorry to say, I can only open this contest to those in the USA, but if you are not in the states, you can still leave a comment and there may be a surprise for everyone else at the end of the contest;)
Here is a preview of the book. The tote design and the quilt in the background.
And here is one of the punched pieces I did for the book. I have also done a few punched pieces that Lynette is now selling and new ones will be coming in the future, so be sure to check out her site while you are there.
