The 3rd Day of Christmas

I've been blogging for a year and nine months now, and in that time I have met some wonderful sister bloggers from all over the world. It's so much fun sharing what you've done, and seeing all the wonderful ideas and projects others have. If you don't blog, I highly recommend taking the plunge.


In honor of them, I am having a giveaway for two copies of the book Sisterhood, A Quilting Tradition.





Here are some of the great projects inside, based on family and friendship.











Leave me a comment before midnight EST on Jan. 5, and I will draw two names. Good luck.

I would love to win cause it reminds me of my mother having old women friends over all day working on a framed quilt. They would talk and talk and not realize until done they had sewn their finger to the quilt. One day I asked to help and am still quilting. Constanceoc@yahoo.com
