'Cozy Afternoon' is a free Block of the Month Quilt, designed and led by Jacquelynne Steves. The sweet little mouse is her artwork as well - I copied it from the theme fabric I will be using in the borders, from her line, "Joy, Love, Peace, Noel".
Here are all my 'Cozy Christmas' blocks so far:
I am having fun with these critters!
Only one more block to go and then we get an additional month for the setting! Yep, that means there is still time to receive the patterns! Visit Jacquelynne's blog, The Art of Home to sign up.
Jacquelynne has generously offered an electronic 'pattern bundle' giveaway -
This bundle will be awarded to one lucky reader at each stop in the blog hop!
To enter the giveaway:
Please leave a comment on this post prior to Sunday August 16th, at midnight.
I am interested to know of your favorite authors and/or books! A short, yet heartwarming book I recommend - a favorite since I was young, "That Quail, Robert" by Margaret Stanger.
Have you read any of the books (to the right) I have conquered this year?
BTW, I am a 'hands free' reader! 80% of the books I read are on CD, often with headphones!
Followers of my blog may leave a second comment for another entry! I know, I know, shameless right? But followers should be rewarded, yes!! And I am coming up on my 300th post so this is good timing - hint hint;)
The winners will be contacted by email on Wednesday, the 19th!
Remember to leave your email address if you are a no-reply blogger!
Thank you so much for visiting! Please know how much I appreciate your comments even though I may not be able to reply to everyone during a giveaway!
