A Pink Chalk Giveaway..

..to celebrate 500 followers!  I still can't quite wrap my brain around the fact that one person ever found and followed my blog, (go say hi to Sunny--the person who's followed the longest.)  So I want to say thank you to all who follow along--for stopping by, reading and/or commenting and for generally even caring about my sometimes boring posts.  And tolerating my less than stellar photos.  It's been so much fun, this blogging thing, and I've met so many great blog friends and you're all so wonderful and creative and I've loved being inspired by you all.  Thank you also for tolerating my run-on sentences. :)

Sooo..  I will shut up and get to the good stuff... Pink Chalk Fabrics is helping me celebrate and thank you all by sponsoring a giveaway of a twenty dollar gift certificate to their shop.  



It's full of gorgeous fabrics, notions, patterns, and they even have this AMH laminated cotton on SALE right now.  



Or you might like one of these FQ sets.. 



(perfectly perched or quiltcon solids)


I will draw the winner next Thursday, October 18. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment letting me know you follow.  If you want extra entries, you can share the giveaway via tweet, FB or blog and leave me a comment for each one, but that's not required.

I'll leave you with a tease.. this is what I'll hopefully be working on, if I get the fabric I need to finish it this next week. :)



And I'll still be working on quilting the Jacks.  Have one of the three flags done, so I'm one third of the way through. I like how the quilting is looking, if I can only finish it the rest of the way w/o any huge tucks in it..












Oh, one more bit of happy news.. little Reubenita the Fashionista is turning into the little donkey that could.  Today she was featured at Sew Happy Geek.  Who knew that a little dotty donkey would get so much love?!? Thank you Jenna!!

Have a great weekend everyone, and don't forget to enter the giveaway! :) You all are the BEST!

xoxo

Congratulations! I'm a new follower and not quite a blogger yet. Thanks for the chance to win! Apparently I'm a no reply blogger even though I'm not a blogger, so I've no idea how to fix that. Just in case I win: hlofgren201 (at) gmail (dot) com

Holli said...

This isn't for your giveaway (I already did those comments): I just wanted to say that since I became a new follower I read many of your most recent posts, and am inspired to make the Jack Attack quilt and Swoon quilt. Yours are beautiful and I appreciate how you wrote about them. Thank you so much for sharing. Seriously, it's like a gift to be able to read about and see such great work.

Holy shit girl how did I miss this? Oh riiight, three sick children, one sick husband, and spotty internet. 500 Followers? Damn! ;)

Hi Kelli, congrats on your 500 followers. Of course I am a follower and I love visiting your blog! Love your Swoon quilt in your previous post too, it's a gorgeous finish, hugs Wendy

Kelli said...

Congrats on so many followers! That Jack is looking good with the straight-line quilting, can't wait to see it done! And I am a follower as well. :)
