Follow, Follow The Road To A Giveaway!


Here's the same old story on why I have a Follower's Giveaway:

Way back in March 2008 I started my blog, Just Let Me Quilt, to
have a place to keep track of the few-and-far-between sewing projects I created.
I had some loyal family members and friends who felt sorry for me so they
FOLLOWED ME.

I quickly learned that FOLLOWERS motivated me.

Being a FOLLOWER has never been a requirement to enter my 
usual BLOG HOP GIVEAWAYS.....

....BUT
it is a requirement to be a FOLLOWER if you want to enter my 
FOLLOWER'S GIVEAWAY.

I am so grateful to the few people who want to come back 
to visit me and I know that if they are following me, 
they will know about this extra little giveaway via their 
email, blogger dashboard, or Google Reader. 

This giveaway is my way of saying,
"THANK YOU"
 for coming back.

The Giveaway....
One Charm Pack of
Moda's Towne Square Quilts

All you have to do is:

Be a FOLLOWER (by email counts.)
(make sure you let me know if you follow by email since your
little picture won't show up in my Follower box.)

Leave one very short and sweet comment

Only one entry per person.
The Follower's Giveaway will end on February 7th at 6 p.m. PST
(comments left after that time won't count)

Make sure I have your email address or you can't win!
I'll ship Internationally.

I follow you Carol because I enjoy your blog and you. You don't need to have a giveaway for me to leave a comment. I may not comment on every posting , but I do take a peek at what you are up to. You and I started our blogs the same month and year so does that make us Bloggie Sisters? Lol.

Quilt n Queen said...

Margaret said...

I came back....you are ok. We all have those moments. Tuesday was my daughters birthday and I kept thinking all day that there was something I had to do but never thought what until she called me at 6 pm. Gee, I only have two kids you would think I could remember their birthdays.

Coffee Break Whatever said...

A senior moment...yep, I have them two. I prefer to think of it as a "scrappy moment"...put all them "scraps" together and make a "senior moment quilt" But first...put me back into the drawing!

KatieQ said...

Truthfully, since I retired the only day of the week I keep straight is Sunday because we go to church. Other than that, I can never keep things on track.

tubakk said...

Oh yes, you're just like all other quilting ladies. Happy to understand that it isn't only me;-)

Kathy H said...

I am still following you, even if you are the silliest one. At least you didn't actually go somewhere on the wrong day and wonder where everyone else was! I have heard that this does happen to some people!!! Not that I would know about that!
