A Silk Giveaway.... Times 2!!

Hello Everyone,

Over the past few weeks you have been reading about my love affair with silks. My friend Victoria, of Bumble Beans, Inc. and I are just beside ourselves and can't wait to play with them.

But we thought that maybe some of our faithful readers would like to play with them too!!



So, do you like these? Aren't the dupioni's beautiful?


A beautiful yellow, orange, pink, aqua, and gray.


Tons of loveliness! I would like to share these colors with you. But first, a break for station identification...


Episode 18 of my podcast is out and ready for your listening pleasure by clicking here or downloading it from iTunes (for free). This one is a keeper, it is all about getting ready for Quilt Market and what to expect. A sort of sneak peek. I am packing today and heading to Houston tomorrow and will be reporting, so come back often!

Now back to the giveaway...

To win the fat quarter bundle above AND a chance to win a fat quarter bundle from Victoria, here are the rules:

1. Leave a comment here for one entry. Make sure you leave an e-mail or a way to contact you if you win.

2. Leave a comment on Victoria's blog Bumble Beans Inc. and come back and let me know in a second comment for another entry.

3. Become a follower of my blog and Victoria's and leave another comment here for a third entry.

You can choose to do all of these or just one!

The giveaway will remain open until 10:00 PM EST November 1!

Good luck!

Thank you to all who entered, the giveaway is now closed!

Until Next Time...
