A give away!

This is to announce my first give away. This give away is in celebration of the first 10,000 yards of yarn that I used last year.
It is a skein of hand dyed 90% merino wool 10% nylon sock yarn, 400 yards. I am calling it Meadow in Bloom, since it matches one of the quilt I am working on.
All you need to do is leave a comment on this blog. If you can't figure out how to do that, then just email me. Just click on my Profile right under my picture at the left side of the page. It will show you where to email me.
I will number all the comments on Monday and do the random number thingy and award it. Next week, I will do another give away for the second 10,000 yards of yarn used last year! I will announce the winner on this blog, so please keep watching. Leave your Ravelry name, if you are on Ravelry. I will know how to find you.
Understand that just because you leave a comment, does not mean that I have your email. If I do not, I will let you know here. You will have a week to get back to me before it goes to the next person.
I am almost finished with my Meadows in Bloom quilt top. This is part of the next section. I seem to have forgotten how big a full size quilt is! I have 2/3 of it sew together and it takes up almost all my floor space in the living room.
I can tell you that I am having to vacuum the LR rug a lot more. Quilting leaves a bigger mess, strings, threads and pins everywhere.
Here is my 7th square on my Tulip Twist Quilt. 5 More squares to go on that one. No more batik squares today. I am off to finish up my Meadows in Bloom, then got to finish cleaning the house.

Have a great weekend. Don't forget to FOCUS.

Love your Meadow in Bloom quilt. Is the applique all hand-done? I'm going to make one of those quilts like your batik quilt. Congratulations on your many, many yards of knitting.

What a gorgeous quilt. Thanks for the opportunity for the give-a-way. I am always amazed with the numbers that knitters can crank out. We are very industrious people, aren't we? Congratulations!
