Leap Day Blog Hop and Give Away

 As a thank-you to all my fellow bloggers who have made this past year a pleasure  I have put together a couple of giveaways as part of the Leap Day Blog Hop organised by Elizabeth at Such a Sew and Sew.


The first one would suit those of you who like piercing and patchwork and  is  the book  "Quilt Yourself Gorgeous"   by Mandy Shaw which is full of lovely designs plus a jelly roll by Fabric Freedom - "Sweet Daisy May" plus a couple of  surprise additional bits  and pieces.



Giveaway no 2 includes 2 applique books " Garden View Applique " and "Affairs of the Heart"   and another fabric freedom jelly roll which would be good for applique projects plus again some  additional surprise extras! 




Rules for the Give Away?


For my giveaway - Let’s keep it simple!! The giveaway  starts and end on Leap Day February 29, 2012.
Just leave a comment on which Giveaway  you would prefer and why.
  If you are a follower of this blog, then leave ANOTHER comment saying that you follow and you will get a SECOND chance to win. 
 It opens at 08:00 am and closes  at 10:00 pm.

Good luck

Pauline
