Giveaway Day!

I'm really excited to be participating in SMS Giveaway day for the second time. It's a great chance to find some new blogs, possibly win something (ask Danny about that...) and find inspiration in some great handmade items.

I have two giveaways this year, but since one is fabric and the other is handmade, I thought I'd split them into separate posts...

I am offering seven quarter yards (9" x WOF) of fabric from Anna Maria Horner's Garden Party collection. This is possibly my favorite of her collections I think (although they're all gorgeous, so it's hard to choose).





 If you'd like to have a chance to win this bundle, leave ONE comment telling me why you love AMH fabric.

If you're a follower, leave a second comment for a second chance to win!

Giveaway will close May 25th at 5 PM PST. I will use Random.org to choose a winner. I am willing to ship internationally. If you're a no-reply blogger please leave me a way to contact you.
