Followers! Giveaway! Has Ended

The Follower's Giveaway has ended

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 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.

All you have to do is:

Be a FOLLOWER (by email counts.)
(You can become one right now if you want to be a part of this giveaway.)
Leave one very short and sweet comment
(make sure you let me know if you follow by email since your
little picture won't show up in my Follower box.)
Only one entry per person.
The Follower's Giveaway will end on December 8th 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.

THE PRIZE?

It's a Christmas gift so I can't tell you what it is.
Hopefully, you'll like it because I have a no exchange or return policy.
Just re-wrap it and re-gift it if you don't like it. LOL!

P. S. I'll post what the "PRIZE" is after I have a winner.

I love surprises!!! But! You have to promise to show us all when you pick a winner what the prize is... deal? Thanks for the chance, I am a follower.

Jeanie said...

I'm a follower. And I'm wondering what the suprise might be! Whatever it is, I'm sure it's a keeper!

Joyce said...

I had to laugh when I read about starting your blog and your only followers were family and close friends! I started mine just recently and my brother, 2 sisters, daughter and best friend were my only followers for quite awhile. I finally joined the U R Priceless Blog Hop to gain a few non-relatives! I happily follow yours! Merry Christmas!

Marjorie Nath said...

Oh, great a surprise present! Will it be wrapped? DH & I are in our 60's and to explain to him what I want & what online store to go to is more than he can deal with. We live in Mexico now and I haven't found a fabric store that carries a variety of cotton fabric yet alone batting etc. So I would love a surprise gift.
