Everyone loves a giveaway - what a nice way to start the new year

Sue said...

Happy New Year, Barb, and congrats your your long running successful blog. I always enjoy reading your posts.

Since I have a quilt shop, I generally don't enter giveaways for fabric. I generally like to see someone else win. But this looks like a cute one- and I used to live in Texas. If I should win, I will make something with the fabric and I'll donate it to a charity.

My birthday is August 26th.

QuiltPeace said...

OOps - don't know if this went through before but wishes for a happy and healthy New Year and Happy Quilting!!

Jeanne said...

Happy New Year, Barb! I just saw your other post - I can't believe you already have a FINISH; it's only the first day of the year, girl. Relax! haha.

Anyyywayyy... my birthday is January 28. I'm not looking forward to it because it ends in a zero this year (yes, it's THAT birthday, the one every woman dreads). However, my husband and daughter are throwing me a top-secret party on the 30th, so that will be exciting!

woohoo....2010..here is to some great quilts and great blogging.....my birthday is august 22nd.......draw me draw me.....

Simone de Klerk said...

Congratulations with so many hits! How fun, to ask for people's birthdays. Don't know why, but I enjoyed going through them. The only thing that confused me, is that in Holland we first put the date and then the month. So I would write 22.07.1959 and I think you would write 07.22.1959. No problem if the date is 13 and above, but otherwise it confuses me. So, when is your birthday?
BTW, lovely giveaway!

Happy New Year Barb, to you and your family...love to be in the draw for your Giveaway....congratulations...Hugs Lyn
