Blogging Break and a Giveaway!

Sweety and I are hitting the road and are going to go to Colorado to visit our son. Yea!!!! I love him so much and I love Colorado so it's a win, win situation. We'll be back when we get back - oh the joys of retirement!! In the meantime I'll be AWOBL (Absent Without Blogging Leave).

I didn't make that one up. I stole it from Carrie over at Miss Rosie's Quilt Company. If you are a quilter, you know all about Carrie's wonderful company that produces patterns and books. Her collection of Schnibbles patterns are all the rage.

Tell me I am not the only person in the world that buys patterns and books only to find out that I have them at home. Please! Sad thing is how many times I've done it. Now I've done it again!!!

This time with Carrie's wonderful book, A Touch of Rosie. It's chock full of beautiful quilt patterns. Since I ordered it online, I can't return it so one of you lucky quilters out there will benefit by my mistake. Just leave a comment and let me know you would like to win the book. Pass the word around to all of your quilter friends. This book is a gem!!!

See ya when I see ya!!

***I'm sorry that I forgot to mention when I would draw a name to win the book! I'll do it when we return home from Colorado. Thanks for being patient!

I'd LOVE to win this book! And no, you aren't the only quilter to do that! If you buy it more than three times, I think there is a problem. :)

Enjoy your time away. Will miss your posts and pics of Maggie.
