Pattern Give Away

I tried my hand at pattern writing, and I thought this was awful cute!  I am always coming up with project ideas and I have been wanting to do this for years.  Life is short, so why not?  Here goes...


My first pattern!  Alright folks I'm not saying I'm Jinny Beyer or anything, but this was fun and I'm an awful proud girl.  Here are a couple color options:









I would like to give away a free pattern to one of you reading out there, and say thank you for the encouragement and inspiration.  I have come into contact with so many wonderful people through blogging, and I'll tell you what, NOTHING can improve one's self esteem more than a couple comments telling you "good job!"  :)

This is going to be an easy peasy give away.  All you have to do is comment and you're in.  Be sure I have a way to contact you if you should win.  If you're email isn't available through your profile or you don't have a blog, please leave me some way to get ahold of you.

This giveaway starts...as soon as this post is published.  When does it end?  Whenever my little heart pleases!  As long as you are commenting I will keep it open...when comments slow down...I will close it up and draw a winner.  (In other words, you'll have to check back often for a winner!)

Thank you again to all of you who have been following along and "hanging" out with me for the past several years.  It's been so much fun and I look forward to many more years of blogging, and lots of new and fun exciting things to blog about!  :)

How cool!! It's awesome that you're designing your own patterns now. And I like how you didn't make all the flowers the same. :)

Congratulations on your first pattern, and a good one at that. I enjoy writing patterns too, but they are a lot of work. I would be honored to win one of your first designs, of which I am sure there will be many more.
