DST Giveaway

Yesterday got away from me... including my camera...
so I wasn't able to show you my first DST giveaway!
(de-stashing time)
I found a nice little jelly roll of Basic Grey and a Jelly Roll book
that I want to find a home for.


If you are interested in this little giveaway just leave me a comment and I
will pick a winner for it on Monday. But I have another little something that 
I will post a giveaway for tomorrow. 
So please check back!
I am loving the weather this weekend.
I am looking forward to DST (daylight savings time)
but mostly because of more light hours. I enjoy winter...
I just need more LIGHT! Longer days mean I can get more done!

This weekend I am working on putting the border on this 
little quilt. I am having a brunch tomorrow for my family in
honor of  my stepson getting engaged to his girlfriend of 9 years. 
A little one, a boy, will be joining the family latter this month.
There isn't a whole lotta fussing about the sweet baby...
I think it has to do with having all sons. They aren't 
excited about baby showers etc.
So, instead of that, I am having the boys all bring diapers
and books for the baby. 
That way the baby will have a book from each of his uncle's.


If there is any other time available to me this weekend I hope to 
put the final borders on this quilt too.
Wish me luck...
oh, and I wish you luck in the giveaway!

Love the quilt! Those flowers are so happy looking. Love the idea of the books, too. We took our favorite books to a shower for my cousin's first baby. It was amazing that no two people brought the same book!

Congratulations on the additional baby in the family and the engagement. Uncles aren't half bad to have and a book to read is always nice to have.
I have ever had a jelly roll in my quilting life so that could be fun.
Thanks for being so generous
