Since today is my birthday, I’m giving away 3 books for the third of July.
Here’s the first one- Christmas at Buttermilk Basin by Stacy West.
I love wool appliqué and used to do lots of it but it just feels too slow for me these days. Stacy is a friend of ours and I’ll never forget the day years ago when her girls were little that she stopped here at Country Threads. It happened to be sweet corn season and I sent a bag home with her. It’s Christmas in July if you win this book!
The next give away book is Stitched From the Heart by Keri Turner-Goodhart. The book is filled with inspirational stitchers combined with patchwork.
These small projects are meant to give away to a friend with a message included. This is a very sweet book!
And last but not least a copy of our book Civil War Remembered which is not new but has many favorite patterns inside.
Here is the cover quilt block made into a small brighter version. This is called Devil’s Claw.
Remember this picture I took? It’s one of my favorites!
So how do YOU win a book? Leave a comment with your name and an identifying mark of some kind so I can post a definite winner. Such as mary71 – instead of just Mary. Thanks! Tomorrow on the 4th of July, we’ll pick 3 winners and then I’ll need the winners to email their mailing address to me at marye @ncn.net.
I caught up on my rug last night while I enjoyed the breeze on the porch. My goal is 2 rows a day. Here’s my rug today.
We have sent out lots of rug books and on July 15 I’ll start a rug from the beginning and anyone can follow along with me. Please look through the book before July 15.
Anybody remember this quilt by Linda Brannock? I think it’s called America. When Rick and I got married on June 14, Flag Day, 1997, the staff made this quilt for us and it’s one of my favorites of all times! I’m enjoying it in the porch table this 4th of July!
And I close with a sweet picture of JB!
