Quilt Market Give Away!!!!!!!!!!

One of the highlights of Quilt Market is getting to view the Primitive Gatherings Booth and meet Lisa Bongean, after all I may be one of her top 10 customers...behind a few of you! lol  She was kind enough to let me get a peek at this summer's Wool BOW!!!  She had it tuck under the counter so she could work on it during the down times (as if there is any at market)  Those of you that are signed up already are going to be sooooo happy you are doing it...and those of you who haven't yet signed up you had better get crackin'!!!  The designs will be simpler than last year with less layers of wool and the script is a wonderful addition.  She said the script writing was simple using the pen they offer on their site, she used a light box to trace the outline of the script and then sat down and filled it in...easy peesy!



the blocks are warm with wool and the script are things I aspire to live by.


And NOW for the Give Away!  When Lisa heard about the Woolie readers she gave me a kit!!!! to Give Away to one lucky follower of the Woolie Mammoth.  I was blown away by her generosity.  If you are interested leave me a comment on this post and I would like you to be a registered follower of the blog.  Two weeks from today a winner will be announced!!

Thank you again...I know I have said but from the bottom of my heart to the tips of my sewing fingers...thank you to Karen, Anne and Sandy for a wonderful weekend!
