Let's Party!


It's about time for a party and a giveaway, don't you think?  And I'm going to make this real easy for you.

First of all, I suppose you'll want to know what I'm giving away.  It's a 7 fat-quarter bundle of Peachy Keen La Dee Da by Erin McMorris.  These are almost too cute to give away!


And then I suppose you'll want to know what you need to do to win these babies.  So here's the scoop:

1.  Leave a comment on this post.  Tell me the name of the last book you read (or the one you're reading now).  Me?  I'm listening to an audio book:  Stephen King's 11/22/63  (And it's good!)

2.  If you're a follower (new or well-seasoned), you can get an extra chance by leaving a comment letting me know.

That's it!  Easy as pie.  This giveaway is open to all citizens of the Milky Way Galaxy.  (Fine print:  Delivery to planets other than Earth not guaranteed.)

I'll leave this giveaway open until September 3rd at 6:00 p.m. (Pacific Daylight Time).  Winner will be announced sometime during the day on September 4th.

Good luck and thanks for visiting!

Now party on!  Return to the Blog Hop Party.

I don't really read books. I have trouble with my eyes. A muscle problem for which I have had several surgeries, soooo I save my eyes for sewing and crochet. I used to read nonstop. If I read a magazine, before I know it, my eyes are so tired, I want to sleep or maybe that is old age and sitting still:)
