Giveaway spotted right here ............

We all know winter's coming, (unless you live in the southern hemisphere of course, in which case summer's on the way) so I'm giving away this book which could help you decorate your home for the cold times ahead.
There are some great projects here from lap quilts to table runners, wall quilts to cushions.  

Just take a look at this quilt, which is my favourite,

or this fun cushion being beautifully modeled by Mary's cute little dog Rufus.


Need a present in a hurry?  How about this table runner?


What child wouldn't love to have this wall quilt hanging in their room on Christmas Eve?
Love working with wool?  Then this is just the project for you.
This book has been given to me by Martingale & Company, to give away to one of you.  So, here's the deal:

1) leave a comment on this post for one entry
2) become a follower and tell me that you have done that (or tell me if you already are) for a second entry
3) post about this giveaway on your blog and then come back and tell me you have done that, for a third entry

I will keep this open for seven days, and will close it at midnight BST on Saturday 25 September, and announce the winner on Sunday.

  5. Hey, it took me several minutes to figure out how to do it ... again... but I managed to blog about your giveaway and even put your blog address on. I'm sure it's my computers fault and not mine that it doesn't always work exactly like my daughter says it should!

  58. I'm back, Sue, I'm in the process of "renewing" my blog. People are seeing that I'm "cleaning" the content so it's not so "full" of "stuff".

    I've removed alot of my sidebar.

    I now follow blogs through Google Reader so I don't show up on people's "followers" gadget.

    I've recently met you through Facebook and now am a follower of your blog, enjoying your posts.

    Hugs, Cindy

  113. Looks like a great book, and your blog is wonderful - the problem with visiting blogs is each visit seems to link me to another 5 or 6 I HAVE to visit, so i become a follower and add to my reader, and so on ... I need more hours in the day! Can't possibly do with fewer blogs, or fewer projects.

    Thanks for the opportunity, and for your blog!
