Friday Fun Day ... The Giveaway and Ooops

Hi Everyone,

I woke up at 2:30 in the morning realizing I hadn't sent the Newsletter yesterday. I guess I was too busy being awesome :) If you can give me grace for a day or two I will have it out to you no later than Monday. Hopefully the internet and phone will be installed at the shop today so you all won't have to wait so long for me to answer your messages anymore. Half of the reason I forgot the newsletter was that I had 3 hours worth of messages and emails to answer when I got home last night and by then my brain was mush.

The Giveaway is a Fat Quarter Bundle of my favorite colorway of Flutter:



That Orange just makes me happy!


To win just leave a comment. The giveaway goes until Midnight 11/23

Talk soon.
