My 1st ever giveaway!

Tomorrow, we're having craft night at my house.  That means that I've spent the greater part of today organizing my fabric so that we can mess up the dining room table ... again.  What, you think my dining room table is used for anything like eating?!?

Anyway, I was going through a lot of fabric today and came across this sweet little bag ... who doesn't love a honey bun every now and then?


I won this honey bun in a giveaway last year and figured I'd pass along the Mill House Inn goodness the same way I got it.  So, the winner will receive this gallon size baggie of Mill House Inn honey bun strips.  They're all there, I just managed to take apart the honey bun almost the second that I got it (I wanted to run my fingers through the strips and FEEL them).   Yeah, I'm weird like that.


I giving you a few chances to win here, so pay close attention.  For each entry, you'll need to leave a separate comment so that I can use a random number generator to pick the winner.

For 1 entry:  Leave a comment in this post.
For 1 more entry:  Become a follower of my blog (then leave a comment and tell me you're following me.
For yet 1 more entry:  Blog about, twitter, or facebook about this giveaway (then leave me a comment with the link where you did it, just so I can see that the deed is done).

The winner will be chosen on Thursday, April 1st @ 5 p.m. EST.  Ready ... set ... go!!

Congratulations on your lst giveaway. I too love to touch fabric. And am always amazed how difficult it is to put a jelly roll together. Someday I want to see how they are professionally rolled. There must be a trick to it!
