Grow Your Blog Welcomes You, It’s great to have you here today!!

Gift Certificate - Fat Quarter ShopHello, and Welcome to my little spot on the web. I am participating in the Grow Your Blog Hop today and what a fun treat to be one of over 500 sites being visited today. I’ll be making a few visits myself to other sites, and it should be alot of fun for all involved.

Just for visiting today, one lucky recipient will receive a $10.00 gift certificate from the Fat Quarter Shop.

This gift certificate will be emailed directly to you at the moment I purchase it. Please be sure that you leave me a way to contact you today.

To enter the drawing for the gift certificate, all you need to do is leave me a comment on this page. It’s that simple, no need to “follow” me, no need to answer any questions, or tell me your favorite somethings or why the sun sets and why the sun shines.. LOL Just let me know you were here today is it.

While you are here, you may like to have a look around. I have past projects I’ve created on my Projects page, there are also all my EQ Club entries, as well as some fun tutorials.

All my free patterns will show up when you click on the link as well, so have a look, I have quite a few free patterns on this site. I’m currently working on creating a page for them, but until I get that done, perhaps you wouldn’t mind just clicking this easy link to get them. Yep, you’ll have to open the post, but they are all easily accessible on the pages they are posted.

Other things you might be interested in are my current 2014 BOM named Little Treasures, be sure you bookmark me or “follow” me to learn each day it’s posted. You might also like the Around the Web section, where I feature past blog hops, each link on them is to the exact post of the day for that participant. Still their is even more. My Friends section includes sites I’ve come across or participated in blog hops in and they to are wonderful sites to visit. If you have a site, you may even like to add your site to the list. I’d love for you to do that. You can also have a little read about “me” if your so inclined. Just don’t forget to leave your comment on this page. Your free to comment elsewhere, but to get in on the drawing, you need to comment on this page. If you need to contact me, please feel free to do that as well.

The comments need to be made by February 15, 2014. Any other date on your comment will be ignored.

The entries will close on February 15, 2014 11:59pm PST. I will announce the winner on Wednesday February 17, 2014. I will contact the winner via email. If you are a no-reply blogger, be sure you leave some way to contact me in your comment. If their is no way to contact you, I will pick another winner.

The contest deadline entry has been changed to meet the guidelines for the Blog Hop. My apologies for not knowing this information prior to posting it.

Thank you sew much for stopping by today,

Sorry to be late for the GYB party, but have made slow progress because of things not in my control. Your blog is so pretty and whimsical with the cute little people on the sidebars! You are very talented with your quilted creations! I saw the post where you lost your sweet mother and want to extend my condolences. I am so sorry for your loss and pray that your beautiful memories of her will sustain you through this time in your life.

I am signing up to follow your posts and would love it if you would pay me a visit to check things out over at my little piece of Blog Land!
