Another Giveaway and Another Oklahoma Beauty Block!!

Friday! The day before my designated sewing day (or Saturday as some of you may call it). Last night I was finally able to sew and I made another Oklahoma Beauty block:
Don't look too closely...the paper got wet so it looks a little rough but it's really okay. As my grandmother always said, "it will quilt out in the end".

Now for a giveaway! Many of you know my daughter, Gina, through my blog and her's too. She's been going through so much lately and is trying to get back to blogging. So, If you would be so kind as to pop over to her blog and leave her a comment, then come back and let me know you did so, I'll enter you to win a charm pack of Polka Dot Stitches fabric by Lori Holt and a yard of the main Polka Dot Stitches red fabric to go with it!
You can visit Gina's blog HERE. Also, don't forget to leave your email address in your comment to me so that I can notify you if you win. I'll pick a winner on Monday, the 25th. Also, if you haven't entered my February Giveaway, you can enter that one HERE!  Have a great Friday! Hope you find some time to sew! Cheery wave from Bev!

I visited your daughter's blog. Her paintings would make great fabric. Nancy: rangerer@sbcglobal.net

Emily C said...

Love the painting she made. Left a note. Sometimes it is difficult to express yourself on a blog. I didn't have one for a long time and I have only 10? followers right now. But then I post randomly when I'm working on something and my projects tend to take awhile to finish. Too many other priorities.

Mary Ellen said...

Popped over to say hi to Gina! How sweet to you encourage her blogging this way!
