Step Right Up Folks We Have a Winner

 It is way past time to tell you the winners of my giveaway!
So sorry to keep you waiting.

I was actually trying to coordinate the announcement with another little announcement
but that isn't working out. So you will just have to wait for my other news.
 Here are the giveaway winners:
For the Mini Wall Hanging Kit:
It is #34- Betty Lou!


Next is the winners of my Three Blind Mice...
(and isn't that ironic that it was 3 icky mice along with a nest that
were in my car engine causing all of the problems)


Does this picture make the ears look big?




How about this one... is that better?
Ok, here are the winners of the mice:
 Julie of Having Fun Quilting
 Kris at Simplify
  Brenda of Quilting Along Life's Way

but that's not all... I have another winner.
I am giving the 3 Blind Mice pattern by Fig Tree & Co. away to Sherry L .

Thank you all for your support, advise and comments!

But wait. I am not done yet. Since it is my celebration of over 400 posts and over 600 followers
I thought we should continue through the month with a little fun.
Since blogging is all about sharing, I thought I would share this.



This week I am having a little giveaway for these patterns.
 I was on line and was thinking how much I liked The Cotton Way pattern in the middle...
but thought I might already have it. It was a good thing that I checked, because,
not only did I find the one I already had at home... but the next day I found a second one...
I had already bought the pattern twice and was about to buy it a 3rd time! 
iey yie yie!
Obviously I love the pattern. So I am giving it away to someone along with the
sweet Bunny Hill pattern (very doable by Easter) and the Pinwheel Flower pattern...
that is a big quilt. I saw it made up at In Between Stitches and fell in love with it.
It's just a happy quilt.

I will pick a winner on Monday. Just leave me a comment.

How cool! I've never been comment number one, ever! Thank you so much for the giveaway! Count me in! And it's nice to hear that other folks do what I do...buy the same darn pattern and even fabric, I've already bought!

Vroomans' Quilts said...

Congratulations to the winner. And thank you for hosting another give away.

Stacy Lindblom said...

That's funny that you bought the same pattern twice....and almost a second time. I did the same thing once. Thanks for the giveaway! Happy Day!

Donna said...

I too was ready to purchase a pattern when it dawned on me I already had the pattern So what I bought was fabric. I obviously liked the pattern. Why not make the quilt!

Congratulations to the winners.

Penny said...

mall the quilts were so pretty. I am going to make a star quilt as soon as I finish the basket quilt I am working on. Hope everything is going good with your husband.

Sincerely Penny

Kim said...

Congratulations on all of your followers--I hope to build mine up someday! (I guess I need to post more often.) I need more time in the day!

Thanks for the chance to win!

Gwen said...

Thank you so much for the chance to win! I have bought the same book on more than one occasion-- and gave my nephew the same birthday card two years in a row! :-)

Me and My Stitches said...

Don't you hate when you re-buy things! I think we all have done that. But...thanks for the chance to win!

Dee said...

I've done the very same thing so many times. Just last week, I bought some fabric for a backing (4 yards) and when I got home, I realized I already had another 4 yard piece of the exact same fabric! Obviously I must have liked it and will certainly find a use for the new piece. Congratulations on the milestones!

Jill said...

Love your blog, & the Schnibbles program, I am actually going to try to do the challenge this month. Bought the fabric & the pattern, now just need to get to work.

Jill

Dianne Mitzel said...

ytsmom said...

Don't you hate when you buy something twice. Sometiimes it is even fabric! Congrats on your blog milepost. Not sure how you are keeping it up with everything youve got going. I appreciate all your posts. Thanks

pinsandneedles said...

Thanks for another cool giveaway! Seems many of us do this very same thing. Yep, me too!

Jackie said...

Well that makes me feel better to know that I am not the only person that tends to buy doubles.... reading the comments, many people have this addiction LOL
Thks for the chance!

Kathy said...

Congratulations on all your posts and followers.

I've bought the same pattern, magazine or book before, too. It's very irritating! Thanks for the giveaway chance.

Kelli said...

Congrats on all the milestones and thanks for hosting another giveaway!!

Betty Lou said...

Well, I am hoping that the Betty Lou that you chose as a winner of the wallhanging is me. Not many Betty Lou's out there so I will keep my fingers crossed. I have purchased things twice, even fabric, but I don't think three times. You must really like the pattern.

Stitched With Prayer said...

LOL...I end up with multiple quilting magazines more than anything. Happily there is always someone very happy to receive them. I'm having problems getting the pictures on your post this time to load but I know I will love the patterns your giving away. I love all of Bonnie and Camille's things and Bunny Hill's too. Oh, let's just face it...I'm a pattern, magazine and FABRIC junkie.*sigh* Support group anyone??? Hugs...and thanks for a chance in the giveaway.

Congratulation on your blog success. They are so entertaining and inspiring. Love the pattern- would be great to win it.

Julie in WA said...

I've done the same thing...I was ready to purchase a great DVD when I thought I had better check...sure enough I already had it...twice! Oh well.

Carol said...

Great patterns! If one pattern is good, then two must be even better. Even when I have duplicate patterns, I haven't always used them - maybe in my next quilting life.

sandra said...

Hi Sinta, I was thinking about you and was wondering how your husband was doing I haven't seen an update lately.
I have also a few times Bought something and got home and found I had already bought it. I guess as everyone said it must be something we really like. Blessings Sandra
