Are you ready? This evening is drawing time for the winner of the Quiltmaker Magazine issue, and the Moda Summer Breeze charm pack from me in my joint Give-Away with Pat Sloan!
I hope I’m not jumping the gun on her –when we discussed drawing for winners she said “Thursday Evening” And by my watch – that’s any time after 6pm!
478+ Entries! This was SO unexpected! This whole Leap Day thing kind of snuck in and when she emailed saying “Wouldn’t it be fun if ----Why don’t we ---“ I said “Why not – lets!” and here we are. WOW!
So here we go:
The winner of the charm pack and the Magazine is JAN! She wrote:
I am a faithful follower of both you and Pat Sloan and remembered listening to her podcast interview with you while I was on the treadmill.
I also had the priviledge of attending one of your workshops a couple years ago in Indiana. You will also be at my guild in Plainfield, Illinois in May where I get to take the Night Flight class with you.
This is a great giveaway as I have done many of your quilts as well as Pats!!! Thank you!
Congrats Jan! I've sent you an email asking you to send me your snail mail address so I can send these off to you.
Tomorrow I’ll be drawing for the winner of the “On Track!” magazine from the International Machine Quilter’s Association. Those of you who attended Mid Atlantic Quilt Festival this past weekend – this cover quilt was on display at the show! Did you see it? I would have loved to have seen it in person, the quilting looks AMAZING! Head on over to the post, leave your comment, and I’ll draw for that tomorrow evening.
And just because I can ((HA!! I wasn’t going to, but can’t let this one pass me by!)) Here is tonight’s kindle freebie:
May Day ,the first title in the Murder-by-Month Mysteries series by Jess Lourey, is free in the Kindle store, courtesy of Midnight Ink.
Minneapolitan Mira James has been taking it easy since college graduation--too easy. Due to a dead-end job and a cheating boyfriend, the Twin Cities have lost their charm, and Mira decides to begin a new life in rural Battle Lake.
Right away she is offered jobs as an assistant librarian and part-time reporter, and falls into an unexpected romance with a guy who seems to be the perfect man until he turns up dead between the reference stacks her tenth day on the job.
Anxious to learn more about the man who had briefly stolen her heart, Mira delves into the hidden mysteries of Battle Lake, including a old land deed with ancient Ojibwe secrets, an obscure octogenarian crowd with freaky social lives, and a handful of thirty-something high school buddies who hold bitter, decades-old grudges.
Mira soon discovers that unknown dangers are concealed under the polite exterior of this quirky small town, and revenge is a tater-tot hotdish best served cold.
A hip, humorous, and gripping account of small-town murder, this novel is the first in a series of cozies featuring Mira James, an urban woman with rural Minnesota roots.
I had to post it! I had to! You can take the girl out of Minnesota, but you can’t take the Minnesota out of the girl, and once it mentioned Tater-tot hot-dish, I knew I was going to grab it and post it. Pass it by if you want, but if you want it, grab it while it’s still free.
Happy Thursday Evening!
