FBFs Giveaway

It's hard to believe I've been boring the socks off folks in blogland for two years now with my kids' antics, quilting adventures and general whining and that a few days ago I logged my 200th post.  My, how time doth fly, eh?

This is the kids' last week of school (can you hear them cheering?) and summer vacation officially starts at noon tomorrow (can you hear me weeping?).  I've been doing a little spring cleaning in ye olde sewing area while they're at school and have unearthed some treasures.  To be perfectly frank, I've gotta lotta crap, y'all!


To celebrate my blog's milestones (which is a miracle 'cause I couldn't even keep track of the kids' when they were little), I'm giving away two packets of goodies to my faithful blog followers (FBFs).

Each packet has two quilting books, four fat quarters and a fabric panel.  Behold....

A disclaimer here: the books aren't new.  They are either USED (if you're a redneck) or PRE-OWNED (if you fancy yourself a tad more refined).  They're in really good condition because I'm anal about taking care of my stuff.  Yes, I said anal.  It means 'particular', you philistine.  Snicker if you must.

Here are the rules (stop whining!):

1.  You gotta be a follower.  I won't make you drink Kool-Aid, but you gotta follow my blog.  Telling me you follow along through some blog clearinghouse DOES NOT COUNT!!  I must see your shining, happy face in my followers group on the right side of the screen.  Just sayin'!

2.  Leave a comment telling me you're a follower to be entered.  Dropping a comment about how fabulously funny I am won't hurt your chances either.  Just kidding.  Oh, I'm not!

3.  If you're a no-reply type, I gotta have a way to contact you.  Leave contact info.

The giveaway is open to international friends too so don't fear I'm gonna go all cheap on ya and refuse to shell out to ship to wherever you call home!  I might go all scientific and use a random number generator to pick a winner or stay totally redneck and have one of the Co-Defendants choose a number from a hat.  Either way, it'll be fair and square.

And because I hate long engagements, the giveaway closes Monday May 28th at 9 a.m. Texas time.  Don't dawdle!

As always, thank you FBFs for your comments and encouragement.  I'm having a lot of fun!

Happy quilting, y'all!



  1. I am a follower, my chubby little cartoon face is over much cuter than my real chubby face! Congrats on your 200th post!

  2. I follow your blog but I don't see me over there. But, I am not seeing so well this week.

    I will admit you are fabulously funny but I also think you are super sweet and a great mom.

    I can't believe you have a lot of crap. I really need to show you mine!

    Congrats on your anniversary and your 200th post. I have enjoyed them all.

  3. Well, I think you know I'm a follower! I make way too many comments for you not too. (So, I expect some payola, you know)? Just kidding. I hope you have a great holiday weekend and please don't kill the codefendents. I kind of like them, all long distance like.

  4. O.k. so I'm a new follower (shining in one of the little boxes). I found you over at Sarah's Whoop whoop friday and now I'm going to stalk you forever. See. That's what happens :o)

    I'm a mom of two monsters, too (YOU know what I mean...). And I'm looking forward to read what is to befall me in a few years (mine are younger than yours). Please lead the way and send warnings of avoidable troubles ;o)


  5. How wonderful that you have been at it this long. I did find you through another post but i am now a follower. Thanks for taking the time to do this and helping us along even if it's just so we know we are not the only crazy out there.

  6. My favorite part of the day is catching up on my quilting blogs, including yours :) I used to follow through a quilt blog site that includes lots of blogs, but now am an official follower :) Thanks for putting your quilting out there to inspire others like me :)
