Stash Report and A Giveaway!!!

Today's my Birthday!




Aren't these some gorgeous flowers my wonderful husband game me?


It's been a wonderful day so far, filled with hugs, and phone calls & cards from loved ones :*D  
I even got a video message from two of our Grands in North Carolina... what a treat!  




Isn't modern technology an amazing thing?  I would have loved to send such a message to my grandmother when I was small :*)

When my Mom was visiting, she and Darryll gave me their gift to me...





The Tin Man!!!  Isn't this just the cutest thing?  There's a story behind this that I need to share with you someday :*)  My sweet hubby told me to order a couple of fabric cutting dies and he's taking me out to dinner out at Olive Garden tonight!  Whoohoo!!!!!  

Am I a blessed girl or what ???  =^..^=


But of course, the day is not all about me.... As promised, I'm celebrating with a GIVEAWAY!!!

I received two of these in the mail last week....


The new Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Vol #6 !!!!
.... and I want to share one of them with you, just to say thanks for stopping by this past year, leaving such sweet comments and supporting me as I found my blogging feet and gave birth to A Quilt and a Prayer!  

I'm also going to throw in this cute Harvest pattern, because somehow I ended up with 2 of these too :*)  It's great for 2-1/2" strips and jelly rolls!  I've also seen it with a black background and it's gorgeous!!!




You don't have to be a follower to win, just leave a comment below, because your comments make my day :*)  However, if you are a follower, or decide to become a follower, you may leave a SECOND comment for a second chance to win!  I do want to be sure to appreciate my loyal followers =^..^=  I will ship anywhere, so feel free to comment no matter where you live.  The giveaway will be open for one week and I will announce a winner on November 11, 2012.
PLEASE make sure you also provide your email address if you are a no-reply blogger!

                                                     ++++++++++++++++++++++++

I'd also like to ask for your votes in the Blogger's Quilt Festival..... Go HERE to see all the wonderful quilts in the contest (scroll down past all the sponsors), and then if you feel so inclined you can vote for Scrappy Bearpaws as Favorite Bed Quilt or Favorite Scrappy Quilt.


It's #299



                                                     ++++++++++++++++++++++++

  16. Happy Happy Birthday to my beautiful and talented daughter! So glad you got so blessed by so many people. I could not pick up the video from the kids, but the flowers were beautiful and I think it was a beautiful thing to give something away on your birthday! Was tickled to hear that so many liked the little Tin Man. Of course I knew you would be thrilled with it. Hope the rest of the day is even better than the first and that the years ahead will be much better than those behind! Love you!!! Your Mom
