Because I'm not asking you to:
- become a follower
- 'like' me on Facebook (I have no idea what that actually means as I'm not on Facebook but I've seen it so many times it must be something really good). Actually that's a bit of a lie because I did join Facebook so I could see work colleagues' photos when they were doing their round the world trip. As soon as they came back, I closed my Facebook account but two years on I still get the odd friend request (odd as in 'numbers' and not odd as in 'strange'...although they may well be). I need to work out why I think it's closed and Facebook thinks it isn't
- Tweet about this, or is it Twitter. Don't know, not on that either. ( This is certainly food for thought)
- Go some place else, note the first thing that appears on your screen and then come back here and tell me it is your most fave thing ever
- sign up some place else for a newsletter that as soon as the giveaway is over you'll unsubscribe from anyway
- blog about it
Errr, no, just leave me a comment letting me know what new (to you) quilty website you've found in recent weeks that you really enjoy and you'd like to point me in the direction of.
In return, if anyone is interested I have
Given to me as a gift, I have flicked through it but it's just a bit too abstract for me. In my mind I think I'd like to be abstract but in reality I think I'm a modern traditionalist (if that's not an oxymoron). If you want to find out more about it, there are a couple of good reviews here and Yoshiko Jinzenji has her own website if you want to get a feel for her style.
This was also a gift that has sat on my quilt book shelf gathering dust and is looking for a new home:
Historical quilt stories intertwined with hints and tips - a bit of light bed-time reading for you.
Then for the knitters among you:
|According to the blurb 'over thirty five knitting designs for babies and children up to twelve years.' I made one and it gets worn in bed only by the eldest daughter. I think I know why.|
If you're interested, the odds are most definitely in your favour as my giveaways are the stuff of legends. First one I did was a toss up between two people and in the end I sent them both something. By the time I did the second one word had got out and there were seven entrants.
It all went a bit pear-shaped with my third giveaway with over 100 comments but that was because it was done in conjunction with SewFreshFabrics. So then I got all cocky and did this giveaway but it didn't quite hit the heights of the 100 + one which I'm still smarting about.
So...if you've made it this far.
Link to a quilty website that you enjoy and think I would too.
If you're interested in the first book, include the word 'abstract', second book 'zen', third book 'Rowan kids', fourth book 'Rowan toothpaste' and 'don't mind' if you'd be genuinely happy to receive any of the above books and are not intent on flogging them on Ebay afterwards (several of the Rowan toothpaste ones are on Ebay at the moment for around £3.50 each so you won't exactly be retiring on the proceeds).
That's it. I'll leave you with a quilt block I made today for Renee of Nellies Niceties for her month in Fresh Modern Bee II. A good idea on paper but had I known it all ended with 24 points coming together, I may have thought twice.
PS. I'll keep the giveaway open until Friday 12 August 2011, midday Little Island time.
