So, you can't have books without fabric. I am also offering 7 1/2 yard cuts of Riley Blake Sugar and Spice. To enter just leave a comment. If your a follower just leave a another comment for an extry entry.The same goes for Facebook Fans. This giveaway is open to everyone and ends September 3 at 12:00 am.

  128. I haven't started blogging yet...for the very reason you mentioned with your first blog.....cyber space eating it.....So much of what I post goes off into lala land. Maybe one day I will 'master' the ability to post without anything 'going missing'. I am glad to know it isn't just me..that it happens to other people too!!!! Our thoughts must be greater than the internet can process, therefore they are eaten by the internet to gain knowledge.....that's my theory and I am sticking to it! :)
