Back in Action Giveaway!

Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways
We had a wonderful vacation in St. Andrew's-by-the-Sea, New Brunswick with my husband's extended family. Beachcombing, playing cards, going to town on chocolate during Chocolate Fest (I never thought I'd hear my kids say, "I ate too much chocolate!"), swimming, geocaching, hiking, and whale watching -- so much fun! I even had the chance to do a workshop with Heather Lair while I was there. Wow, I learned a ton and started some fun new projects that I'll share this week.

For those coming for the first time from Quilting Gallery's Blog Hop Party, welcome! Here's a sampling of some of my projects over the last couple of years:




















I have lots to share with you over the next few weeks, including a new game I'll be playing with my stash that you might like to try too. But for now, what better way to celebrate being home from vacation and back in action, than a giveaway?

For today's giveaway, we have this loverly bundle of fat quarters:


You have two chances to win this yummy bundle:

1) Leave me a comment letting me know your favourite colour combination.
2) There's a bonus entry for my awesome followers. Just leave a comment letting me know you are a follower or new follower.

This giveaway is open to international folks until Monday, September 3rd at 9 p.m. EST. I'll pick a number via Ms. Random Number Generator and contact the winner on Tuesday. If you are a no reply blogger, please leave your email address, otherwise I will have to pick another number and that would be sad. Thanks for playing along and good luck!

There are a lot of other giveaways going on right now so check out the Quilting Gallery's Blog Hop page.
