Fresh Picked! A sweet, Summer Giveaway!!

 
The beginning of Summer holds so many fond memories for us all! Getting out of school, days by the pool, the sun warming your skin, cut-off shorts and popsicles, picking fruits and veggies from the garden...all conjuring up a time of feeling ultimately free to be! And that's why we all love Summer, don't we? Having some extra free time to slow down a little and enjoy all the little things in life...like fabric and creating!
 
And you know what little thing we enjoy the most? Hosting a fun GIVEAWAY!!!
 
 
 
 
Up for grabs is the super fun and Summer appropriate, Fresh Picked Fat Eighth Bundle by Sentimental Studios for Moda! This awesome assortment of (25) 9" x 22" rectangles in fun fruit & veggie prints is valued at $45!!
 
 
 
 
Aren't they darling! I love the pea & blueberry prints so much! But the cherries & strawberries are super cute too!! So much fun stuff to do with these fabrics! Make new potholders, or piece together a groovy apron! Throw a few patchwork pillows together for your outdoor dining set or embellish some fun tea towels with strips of your favorite prints!
 
What sweet, Summer plans do you have this year?? Enter the Giveaway by commenting with the sweetest thing you'll do this season and your email address! You can also like us on Facebook to be entered a second time!! GOOD LUCK!

I enjoy cooking very much and us much of the harvest from our veggie garden-2nd year, includes potatoes/carrots/zucchini/onions/beets/yellow and butternut squash/broccoli; and, various berries. We love camping in our RV and most always take a quilting projects, since Ron and I both quilt. We look forward to the Houston quilt Festival in the Fall. However, I must have rotator cuff surgery/recovery for the next 6-weeks so will dream of what I could be doing for a while. That's not such fun, but just wait when it's all over. In the meantime, I'll be pampered by family, including 9-GC; the youngest are 3 years and 2-year-old twin girls; adorable! LOOK OUT WORLD!

Sylvia Anderson said...

The sweetest thing I will be doing is baby sitting 2 of our great granddaughters a couple of days a week. At ages 3 and 6, they pretty much run us ragged, but they are so sweet and we are so fortunate to be able to spend time with them.

I will be taking chocolate chip cookies and my newly finished quilts to my dad's assisted living center to show them off! My dad will be 99 in August and every time we talk about my quilts, he tells me (again!) the stories about him setting up the quilt frame so the farmer's wives and church ladies to come and sit and stitch. He always wants to know if we sit around a frame and quilt:-)
