When I first learned a little about blogging, I would see giveaways and wonder...why? One of the first I entered was for the bloggers 100th post. Well, I said to myself, I could never find enough to say to log 100 posts. Mr. SS would differ with that statement, but I really believed it.
Here I am just eight months later, celebrating 100 posts. Yeah!! I can't believe it.
So this post isn't about me, my family, my home, my cooking or my sewing...well maybe a little about my sewing.
This post is about you!! Yes you. I want to have a giveaway, so one of you who read or follow me can win. I appreciate each and every one of you who reads my blog and leaves a comment. It is fun getting comments and I always follow up with a visit to your blog. And if you don't have a blog I appreciate you too, and will answer with an email.
This is what I am giving away to one of you, and after you see the pictures, I'll tell you how you can enter to win.
This is where my sewing comes in, because I made this for one of you.
I started this almost a year ago when we were in Tucson on a job. I had lost interest until my friend Suzanne posted about a bag she had been given by a customer/friend.
Click on her name to read about it and see her cute bag. It is the smaller purse version of this tote which is Bow Tucks by Quilts Illistrated.
I knew right away I wanted to finish this tote and use it for my very 1st giveaway.
Anyway....back to how you can win.
1. Leave a comment (even if you don't have a blog, check back and if you win you can e-mail me how to send it to you)
2. Become a follower (Google on my sidebar). If you are already a follower, leave a comment telling me so.
3. Last, if you have a blog, please mention my giveaway on your blog and leave a link and come back and leave me a comment telling me you did so.
You will have until July 31st to enter and I will announce the winner on Aug. 1st.
As I reread this, I thought you might think you need to do all three to get a chance to win. You will get one entry for each one. Of course I would love it if you do all three and have three chances to win.
This will be an out of the hat draw and I will have Mr. SS draw. I don't know how to do it any other way...yet.
Oh! One more thing. Since this is a roomy tote with lots of pockets, there will be some suprises inside.
