Summertime, and the living is easy............
Or so the song goes. Summertime. What does it bring to mind? Sunshine, gardens, mowing lawns, corn on the cob, watermellon, vacations. There's so much to enjoy in the summertime.
At the beginning of every summer, our family would trot up to the mountains. We attended an annual homeschooling conference and then would spend a few days in the cool mountains near Bryson City. My in laws had a very tiny trailer parked between Bryson City and Cherokee. The children always enjoyed our time at the trailer. There was a creek that ran close by, so the boys would bounce down in search of any kind of critter. We would rent those great big tires and float down Deep Creek! One year we rode the Smoky Mountain train. We'd watch the rafters as they would bob down the rough Nantahalla River. Of course we'd drive over to Dillard and Franklin to take in the shops. Such sweet summer memories. Do you have any special summer memories??
One very special memory for me is joining this land of blog, and meeting so many wonderful crafters. I've enjoyed reading and learning from your blogs. Amazing as it is to me, you've followed my little blog. So I thought I would have a little giveaway for you, my followers. Not that it isn't open to anyone else, mind you, but your cheerful voices and smiling emails encourage me every day. There are 98 of you that are visible in my followers, but I know there are more out there :-)
So today you all are inaugurated into CLUB 98. It will be nice to invite new followers, but you will always be in the club. Here is the giveaway.
My mama hen is watching over the fat quarters and coordinating fabric.
She's been watching over them to make sure they stay safe.
She also thought I should add a Clover seam ripper, Quilters Tool ID Tags, and a little chicken notebook. She said someone needed it to keep track of how much fabric they need for a pattern.
But she said "you know, you need something else." She scratched around and was not satisfied until she found some cute chicken fabric and put me to task.
The end result.........
So leave a comment on this post, maybe a special summer memory, and we will have a summer giveaway! Yea! Winner will be announced on Saturday July 11th.
Have a fun weekend and most of all, happy quilting :-)
