I know.  I am not very computer literate, lol.  For some reason I could NOT get this copied onto my computer, so you have to settle for a photo of the results. 

Number six...Sharon J. Hughson you are the winner! Please send me your address and I will get the green one out to you right away! 

Thanks everyone for helping me to celebrate my 2 year blogiversary.  It sorta got buried with all of the other goings on in our home (dad is doing GREAT) but this little contest kept it near the top of my mind as I counted down to today.

Today I finally finished the six placemats that will be a gift for a friend.  We will deliver them next weekend and I can't wait to see her reaction!

Here is the front:

And the back:

These placemats have taken FOREVER and involved a whole lot of ripping!  BUT, I have gotten a LOT better at binding by the time I had binded, and then rebinded, them LOL.   Dear Hubby questioned why the cans weren't centered on the back, and why each back is just slightly different.  This fabric was from Spoonflower and, given the cost of their fabric, it would have taken a whole lot more material and money to be able to make the back as pretty as the front, lol.  I guess she COULD use them as reversible, though they weren't meant to be that way. 

Whew, I need a rest!  Maybe tomorrow I will start on a few other Christmas gifts!

Can it really be that my little blog will be two years old on September 7th?  As I said to an old friend the other day, "We must REALLY be having fun because time sure is flying!"

I know things are going to get even crazier in my life with my Dear Dad's surgery next week, so I am going to celebrate my Blogiversary with a little less fanfare than normal.  I don't have time to go out and shop for a ton of goodies to giveaway in celebration, so I am going to give away something handmade by me! 

Starting today, followers to my blog will be able to win one of two drawstring sewing pouches...complete with a matching needle case and pincushion inside. 

Simply follow my blog and leave me one comment telling me:  a) How you follow and b) Which color you prefer...brown or green.   That's it! Easy, peasy!  Winner will be picked on 9/21/14.  This giveaway is open to all readers.
