Grow Your Blog & Blog Anniversary Giveaway


I've been blogging about my sewing for two years this month and thought it would be perfect timing for a giveaway and to welcome new visitors by way of the lovely blog 2 Bags Full. My friend Ginger sells Jewel Kade Jewelry and has offered a scissor charm below to a reader. I have one of these necklace charms and it's a beautiful piece!  The catalog selection is lovely and best of all, the jewelry is made in the USA!

front and back

Ginger designed my necklace below. The possibilities are endless!


Also included in the giveaway are some stash building fat quarters and an Aurifil thread sampler.



To enter the giveaway leave a comment. International visitors are welcome to enter and I'll announce the winner February 15th.

Linking up with Let's Bee Social!

I'm so happy you stopped by!

Deborah xoxo
