A little Holiday Giveaway

I'm kicking myself for forgetting to sign-up for the Sew Mama Giveaway Day this time around. But then I realized it didn't have to stop me from having a giveaway anyway - and this way it only goes to my regular 'peeps' as a thank you for kindly returning from time to time to this kooky little blog. :) (Even putting up with my whiney posts like the last one.)

So here goes: for this giveaway I am offering a free PDF copy of the Retro Christmas Quilt pattern (which is also available here) and to get you started on your own collection of Retro Christmas fabrics I have 3 fat quarters of retired Alexander Henry and Michael Miller retro Christmas prints.
You know the drill. Just leave a comment to be entered. And thanks again for being the lovely people that you are.

POST EDIT: Giveaway ends Saturday, Dec 18th at noon (MST). Winner announced Sat night!

This weekend I'm going to share a couple of last minute Christmas present ideas. See you then!
