'In Your Words'/Giveaway

It is the second day of this blog hop; and I have been anxiously waiting for it.  We have Madame Samm and Linda to thank for this one. I can't imagine the work these ladies have put into this for us.  We have a long list of bloggers taking part; so I hope you will visit each and every one of them.   
I had a blast working on my project and it went very well. What I did was; print up my words to describe me in 'Word Perfect'. It was the only program I had that made the letters the size I wanted. Once that was done, I printed them on Inkjet Printable Fabric Sheets. It went like clockwork;I have used this for Memory quilts before and love it.

Then cut the words out and sewed them onto the background fabric. Once that was done; I did a bit of decorative stitching to set it off. Then FMQ the whole piece. Bound and a hanging sleeve on the back; ready to hang!!

So without more talking(reading for you); here is my project:




The tree about me....lol.  Since these words describe me...I couldn't resist calling it 'all about me'.
And I did say there was a giveaway, right?  Here is what I am offering this time around.  A little pattern for a bag and 4" Ruler to make it with.


So; no hoops to jump through....just leave a comment telling me how you are liking the hop for one entry. Followers of my blog get a second entry. I will randomly draw after the hop is over.

Here is today's list of fellow bloggers; please visit each one.
