100, Let's have a Giveway!

Wow! how exciting. I can't believe this is my 100th post. Let's have a GIVEAWAY to celebrate this milestone!! When I got to work on Tuesday the girl's had surprised me with my quilt patterns, all done and packaged up. One little thing though, they decided to change the name to Shannon's Quilt. They weren't quite sure on the name we had decided on last week. I thought it was kind of original but they thought we should keep it clean in the quilt shop! That's ok with me though. So in honor of the release of this fun quilt I am sponsoring a giveaway, so if you like to sew and ( if you don't sew and you still)want in on it leave me a comment. The giveaway bundle will include the pattern and 10 skinny quarters to get you on your way to making this adorable quilt. I'll be drawing a name on the 2nd of February so don't wait to long. This is the finished pattern, packaged and ready to sell.

Thanks to the gal's at the Corn Wagon for helping me with this project. And to my wonderful husband who thinks my first love is my sewing machine, not true. He has always been very supportive in all my endeavors. Thanks Stuart, you will always come first. Thanks to my kids and grandkids for always being on the receiving end of my projects. They are always the ones to get the firsts of everything I make. I don't hear to much complaining going on though! Also thanks to my friends and family for letting me create for them too. All of you are my inspiration to keep doing what I love "SEW" much, "SEWING"!!

Of course I am going to post a comment, I love Shannon's blog and all the fun stuff she creates. It kind of inspires me or depresses me to thinking she is an over achiever. We like her anyway. Thanks for all your help Shannon on our sewing projects and having the patience my mother never did have with me.

You know I don't usually comment, but I'm really impressed by this. Having the quilt with your name on it is very fitting. You are so talented, and so good to share your talents with everyone. It's just not fair that you got my share of the domestic talents. Congratulations and good luck on the kit sales. Love ya, Collette

I learned how to sew a button on a shirt in cub scouts once, does that count?

Just kidding. Congrats mom

Angie said...

That's so cool! This is my first 'blog comment'! Kind of fitting I guess! Your work is sooooo beautiful! My mom loved the apron you made me! I only know the basics of sewing so I'm in awe :)

It is so exciting to see you have a pattern with your name on it!

I would really love to get a copy of your pattern and the fabric to get started on it.

Kira Rae said...

Does the small print does it say anything about "you may not enter if your a blood relative"? If not sign me up! If there is the relative claus, I still buy one. Save a pattern for me! Congrats!

Suzee said...

OH, so fun! Pick me, Pick me!!! I love to read your blog and I am always so jealous of your wonderful creations. Hopefully some day my kids will think it is cool that I sit and sew all day. Congats on the 100 post!

Hey Shannon!
I absolutely LOVE reading your blog! I think you should get paid for writing it! My husband has said many many times " I wish I were a piece of thread" I just want to be adopted into your ward sewing group. Is that possible?

Shannon,
What a great honor! I have to admit you are one of those people who have such a creative mind and use your talent to create such adorable things. I am not so good at the sewing thing but it secretly has been a hobby I want to pick up. Love ya much!

Judi J said...

Shannon, How I would love to win this. I have sewn though out the years, but for the last few years I had slowed down quite a bit. But I decided a few months ago to start up again and I would love to try this project. So count me in on the drawing.
Happy sewing. JJ

Are you sure we are sisters? I can't believe the talent you have for this. Like Collette said, you must have got my share of the domestic talents too. I know I am lucky to have been on the receiving end of many of your projects and I have loved them all.
