NEW PATTERN AND GIVEAWAY

Soooo I told my sister that I would wait for her to put this pattern in her store...... I didn't really tell an untruth...well....gosh sakes.... I can't wait until tomorrow...tooo excited.
So you get two patterns (this pattern is 20 pages long)....oh my stinking gosh!!  I can't even believe it myself.
Now you know where I have been.....  I did the topper first and then thought...oh......wouldn't it be cute as a quilt...

My husband looked at me kinda funny when I had the topper just ironed down and not stitched....

I was very very worried but when it saw it finished, his eyes lit up....he is my person I go to for critiques and when he doesn't like something I get worried.
This was so fun to watch come together.  Now my son Nathan didn't like how I had the poles situated on the birdhouses but I told him that I tried to center them but it just didn't look right....so my comment is....if you do this pattern...."Do it your way!".....it is your party and you can do what ya want.

Oh...and don't you just think if you chose three birdhouses that it would be a cute wall hanging?  Or rectangle runner...yes...I was going to do a rectangle runner but ...well...I want to go on to other things.  You know me and staying focused.....I can only hold my attention span so long and then I am off again.

my son is hiding behind that quilt....HA!!!  

So to one person I will give this pattern , it is pdf so I can send it right over.  Just leave a comment and I will chose a winner when Jeanette gets the pattern in her store, so probably tomorrow night I will chose a winner.
