Give Away...

My good blogging friends have left a few guesses about my surprise...so far, no one's guessed right, though a few have been warm.

I thought It'd be fun, to make this a giveaway. It's way overdue. ;)

So leave a comment by Saturday, March 21st, with your guess as to what you think my secret might be. Your guess doesn't have to be right for a chance to win, a comment alone will get your name in the hat.
Of course, if you're ambitious, and feel blogging about my give away is appropriate, then leave me a link to your post and I'll throw your name in the hat a second time.
Be sure to leave a way to contact you, if you don't have a blog, or are a "no-reply" blogger. ;)
What do you win? Well that's part of the surprise...it's just something small and fun and I'm hoping you'll enjoy it. Here's a hint...

pwl said...

I'm guessing your patterns have been picked up by a quilt shop and now will be available for sale all over the world! :)

Trisha said...

My guess is your having your patterns published! I hope I am right because how cool would that be to have your patterns published?

dot said...

I am going to guess that your pattern is going to be publised in a quilting magazine in the fall. I will look forward to that. Or your are having a quilting book publised.

holly said...

Oh I guess that your pregnant. Just kidding. I hope you are getting published. That would be awesome.

Leah S said...

My first guess was that you're pregnant. :D And you're making cute little quilty things for the new baby.

But sounds like being published is more closer to the answer. If so, do let us know where and when so we can buy it. :)

Terry said...

My guess would be that your patterns are being published. I see I'm not the only one who thought that! Can't wait to see what the surprise is! And thanks for the giveaway! :0)

I have no idea, sorry. This is my first visit to your blog. Your quilts are amazing, by the way. I'll definitely be back.

rozhearts said...

My first time visit as well, and I agree I love all your quilts.
My guess would be you have won an International Quilt prize for one of your designs.
I will be back to visit
(((HUGS))) Roz.

Hello Valerie, I would love to be in the secret draw, as it ends on my birthday. I would say, it is a Marineers Compass block from Sylvia's Bridal Sampler, Jennifer Chiaverini, Elm Creek Novels.Warm Regards Lyn

Kayla said...

As you know, my guess is that you are pregnant, but after reading everyone else's ideas I think I may be quite off base!

Red Geranium Cottage said...

LOLOL Are they guessing that your pregnant?? I have no clue what to guess. New pattern??

Kathie said...

a new kitty coming to live at your house????

SDQuilter said...

This is my first time here and I have to tell you I love your quilts! Maybe you have been asked to teach on a cruise? Thank you for giving us all the opportunity to have fun and possibly win a prize, too.

Bob said...

Too bad I'm an honest guy or I would try for the prize, since I know what the surprise is. --Dad

Shasta said...

Well since everybody else took my ideas, how about I say you are going to be in a craft show.

Teresa said...

LOL..I posted my guess on the previous post and now I read all of these and see everyone guessing the same. I think we all want to see your patterns available to the world. I love this mariner's compass tease that you are giving us. Hmmmmm...maybe you are going to be a guest teacher on a quilting cruise?

Margaret said...

Pointing inward and outward from the heart of the giver to the outside world. Enjoying your blog.

Crazy for Primitive Quilts and Gardens said...

It just has to be you are starting to sell your patterns :o)

Quilt Hollow said...

Tell Bob (dad)he is such a tease! Ok I tried guessing in a previous post and you said I was warm so I think I will go with online selling patterns through Etsy or perhaps...opening up a shop with dear ol' dad? I'm reaching here! I wanna win!!!

You're preggers!
