Welcome to my first give-away!

It's my first give-away! I just created this blog a few months ago and I'm excited to have you all visit me over here! So on to the give-away. I'm giving away a set of 4 napkins (about 15" square) that would be great for late summer or fall and some fabric to help you get started on your projects for spring!


The napkins are double sided so you can use either side. I love these!
Here is a close up of the fabric. There is half a yard of the pink one and the yellow one is a strip that is about 8 1/2" by 43/44."
Just leave me a note and tell me a tradition you share with your family during the Holidays. I'll pick the winner tomorrow night after 6pm. So you had until 6:00pm (Central time) tomorrow night!
I almost forgot I will only be shipping in the US.

We are in the thick of making new holiday traditions, and this is my favorite: we have an "Advent Tree." It goes up Dec.1 and has crocheted pockets that hold cards with holiday fun on them. One day we make gingerbread houses, one we make candycane ice cream, one we make holiday gift tags, etc. On Christmas Eve, the pockets come down and we decorate the tree with everyone's ornaments, sip cider, and listen to the Messiah.
That was fairly long ;) Love the fabrics and the napkins!

Very nice site you have.
Will be teaching the girls to sew soon and after our first project of an apron, I think we'll make some Sunflower napkins like yours.
