Eddystone Light Block and a Christmas Eve Giveaway!

Good morning! It's Tuesday and my deadline day for my writing assignments. Just one week until Christmas! I can't believe it! Last night I stitched up the Eddystone Light block for the Summer Celebration quilt. I'm so close to finishing I can't wait!

I did a little collage on PicMonkey of some of the blocks for this quilt. I see that they are going to start charging for use of their site. It's been free up to now. I've started using Picasa 3.
 So I thought a Christmas Eve Giveaway would be fun for this Cluck Cluck Sew pattern:

It's the Spin Cycle pattern from Cluck Cluck Sew! It sells like crazy in the shop so I thought it would be something everyone would like. It's surprisingly easy to make although it looks hard. I'm going to make one next year with the scraps from all the Lori Holt projects I've been doing.

To enter this giveaway, just leave a comment and tell me what sewing projects you are going to try to finish next year....I say next year because if you are like me, you have projects that you MEANT to finish this year but haven't. Hopefully they will be 2013 finishes (it could happen). If you want 5 extra entries, let me know you are a follower or become a follower. The only other requirement is that an email address MUST be in the comment or your entry won't count. I honestly don't have the time to go searching for an email address. I'll announce the winner on Christmas Eve. So Ho Ho Ho!  Merry Christmas from Bev and 44th Street Fabric.

Don't forget our other giveaway that's going on right now.  It's a New Year's Day Giveaway for a bunch of Lori Holt fabrics from the shop! You can enter it HERE.

Hope you can find time to sew today! Cheery wave from Bev
