Day Two Giveaway

You have a chance to win this brand new pair GrabARoo's (size 7) and a Square Dancer pattern by Mountain Peek Creations.

I love these GrabARoo gloves. They are great for free motion quilting and a host of other things too. I gave a pair to my mail carrier and he was thrilled. I love to scrapbook and when I use these I don't get fingerprints on my pictures!!! Woo hooo :) The paper and pictures are easy to pick up too.

The Square Dancer pattern was given to me at Quilt Market by the gals at Mountain Peek Creations. They were sooo kind and generous. I thought I would share this beautiful pattern with a lucky winner :) I hope that winner is YOU!!!

What do you have to do today? Well....lets imagine you were given a gift certificate for $357.00 from and you had to spend it all. What would you buy? Have fun....but just remember you are imagining you were given that certificate.....its imaginary :)

  7. What fun! Guess I would love to try the EQ6. And your portable design wall looks super. The graberoos and the new grip thimbles. Wow wouldn't it be fun to have such a great shopping spree :-) Thanks for the fun idea. Even it if is only imaginary.

    Paintstik Set Professional Paintstiks on Fabric by Shelly Stokes

There are several notions I need, including a new, really good iron. Then I would "try" to save enough to go have a wonderful romantic dinner with my hubby...were 20 days away from our 41st wedding anniversary. Then maybe a new set of bathroom scales that weighs about 10 lbs light, just to make me feel good **wink**. GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!!
