Give-Away

I had an unexpected package arrive on my doorstep on Friday.  That's always fun, but I was even more excited when I opened it.  Inside was the 2011 Sewing Calendar by Accord Publishing and Megan Smith.


The box flips open and holds over 100 simple sewing projects.  There are so many cute and fun things to try!


But here's the one that caught my eye first.  Yep, it's my thrift-store-sweater-turned-Christmas-stocking from last year's Thrifty Gifty series!


Megan contacted me and asked if I'd like my stocking to be included, and of course I said that I would.  So now I've officially made it big-time!  Well, me and 100 other bloggers, and it's not so big, but it's still pretty cool!

They sent me two copies, so that means I get to share with you!  I'd been thinking that it's been a while since I had a give-away, so this was perfect timing.  And you will get in it plenty of time to get some ideas and make a few Christmas gifts!

Here's the thing:  we are leaving for the beach on Wednesday and won't be back until next Tuesday, so I'm going to leave the give-away open until Tues. Aug. 3 at 11:59 pm.  Leave a comment on this post for one entry. Since I'm going to be laying on the beach, if you'd like to help me promote the give-away by mentioning it on your blog or tweeting it, I will give you a second entry if you leave an additional comment telling me that you did one of those two things.

Good luck!
