Happy Holidays, Blogiversary & Giveaway... Oh My....

 and all of you.... Hope, Wonder, and Joy
for the New Year.



WoW! its been six years since I started my blog, which I started just because and then as an accountability journal of my creativity.  Seriously, I did not know that it would blossom into fun, challenges, and hardwork (writing a post is brain torture...lol).  As I reflect on the  past years of meeting wonderful people, learning, sharing, being inspired & constantly encouraged has me feeling nostalgic.  Also, as I read back through some of my old posts, I mumbled what was I thinking when I posted that, uggh that pic makes me look *%$#,  laughed hard, and at the same time how much I forgot.... thank goodness I wrote it all down....lol  

Most importantly, for all of you still reading, have met IRL and telephone buddies talking up to 3 hrs about what to sew and so on , THANK YOU for the friendship, inspiration. encouragement and looking forward to the New Year with you all!


ok.. time to wipe away the tears and stop sniffling 
and onto the Giveaway for one Lucky Winner......

Assortment of sewing notions, patterns,
Infinity Scarf 
 (which will be made after announcing the Winner)
and for a later post the inspiration behind my infinity Scarves
No pattern was used for this infinity scarf which measures 56" long x 14" wide from a printed slinky knit, which I like to call infinity Jewelry.

& surprise 1-1/2yd fabric (58") to make your own infinity scarf as well....

Sooo lets get this party started... shall we....


To participate just leave a comment.... That's It.

(Giveaway ends New Years Eve & winner will be announced New Years Day... )


until then.... HAVE A BEAUTIFUL HOLIDAY
