Interweave, anniversaries and a little giveaway

Are you familiar with Interweave? Occasionally they offer crazy deals like this one…10 cents for a download of 2010 Gifts digital magazine! Too good to pass up. They carry some great products, so you might want to check it out.


A couple of anniversaries rolled over this past week. 

Mr. DJ and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary on the 14th.

..and now.


Celebration included lunch at IHOP (Amber’s treat), a cruise around Goodwill and changing the rotors and brake pads on the car. Oh, we rotated the tires, too.  We know how to have a good time!

I began this blog in August of 2009 and to my amazement, I’m still plugging along. If it weren’t for awesome readers who leave nice comments, I’d have given up. So, thank you! I think a little giveaway is in order.

I’ll give a surprise package of hand dyed fabric pieces to one lucky commenter. The pieces are either fat quarters or eighths and it will total at least one yard. (I have a couple of extra goodies in mind, too.) No hoops to jump through…just leave a comment and a way for me to get in touch with you! Here’s a sampling of what may be in your package:

I’ll take comments through Sunday, August 21st and let the random number generator do it’s thing Monday morning. (One entry per person and international entries are fine.) Good luck!
