A pre-giveaway giveaway--CLOSED

Make sure to come back here on Wednesday, July 6 to enter to win your own Go! Baby!


In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to have a little pre-giveaway giveaway.  If you have ever wanted to give hexagons a try, here is your chance.  I'll provide the winner with 45 hexagons cut with my Go! Baby from my own stash.  This is just enough to make my new favorite pillow I posted yesterday.  The winner chooses the fabric: scrappy, Bliss, Riley Blake All Star, Denyse Schmidt Picnic, 12 Days of Christmas or whatever else I can dig up.  There are two possible entries:
  • Be a follower AND leave one comment telling us what your plans are for the weekend.
  • Blog and/or tweet about this little giveaway and leave a second comment with the link(s).  My twitter link is the_blue_chair.  
The winner will be announced Tuesday, July 5.

I hope you all have a great weekend, and a wonderful holiday for those in the US or Canada.

I'm a follower . . . and my plans for the weekend: return my younger niece to my sister tonight, and maybe hit a shoe store or two, since my dog ate the ankle strap off my favorite comfy pair of eastland sandals. And tomorrow, visit Ikea and a place that sells acres and acres of lilies. Hoping to take some pics while there. Then I'm coming home to see my husband for a day before he heads back to his job!
