How to win you ask?  Leave me a comment saying you’d like to enter and if you would be so kind as to mention this giveaway on your blog, I would very much appreciate it.  Nothing elaborate.  Just a little blurb sending folks back over here with this graphic used as a link back to me.


Am I making sense?  Sound like a lot of trouble??? It’s not really.  And since you are so nice to oblige me in this…I will be adding a toile apron to go with your new sewing book!  A one of a kind toile apron made by Moi!  How does that sound?  Pretty sweet huh? The deadline to leave a comment is Thursday at noon CST.  I will do the drawing Thusday evening.  And just so you know…I will be doing a Valentine’s Giveaway as well!

Good luck everyone! Now leave me a comment and I will put your name in the trusty mason jar!
