578 Posts and 327 Followers…

Cause for a celebration!  Most people wait for a round number, but as I’ve past the 500 post milestone a few months ago and the number of followers changes daily, I thought I’d just get on with it. 


There will not be 1 winner, but 3!  With the Queen’s Jubilee right around the corner I’m feeling generous.  First place will get the jelly roll which I’ve carefully selected and cut from my stash of red, white and blue fabrics.  Second and Third prizes will each receive a charm pack of red, white and blue fabrics.


Although I’ve only photographed the fabric, I will be adding more to your prize…just little things, but things I hope will be a nice surprise when you open your winning package.


To enter for your chance to win comment on this post. First name pulled will get the jelly roll and 2 others will get the charm packs.
Anyone can enter as long as I have a way of contacting you.
(Leave your email address in your comment if you don't have a blogger account.)
One entry per person please.
I will choose a winner

(which happens to be the Queen's birthday!...boy did I time this well!)
The winners have been chosen...
Thanks to everyone that left a comment. 

Until next time....

This is great! I remember the Queen's Silver Jubilee in 1977. All the festivities took place during the last summer we were in England before immigrating to Canada. Our street had a wonderful fete and my mum made long dresses for my sister and me. Good times! I would SO love to win your giveaway. The whole thing just makes me feel nostalgic.
