This will be mailed out Tuesday morning and maybe on some one's table for the Holiday weekend. I have to finish binding it tonight and will do the Random Org. picker around 9:00 pm central time Monday night. So you have until then to leave a comment on the post several down. It measures 58" long X 15" wide. Those that live overseas and a red/white & blue holiday isn't for them maybe you'll just like the colors. Hope someone that can use it will win it.
Would of been earlier, but due to canning and making birthday dresses for some special grand babies, it has ran a little later than planned.
Tomorrow I'm off to sew with Treasured Friends at the Church, can't wait.

If you haven't noticed, I didn't get any sewing done while watching my grand babies at the lake. So my giveaway is a little late, but good news is you can still enter it in the post below. Sneak peek above and there will be another surprise to go with it.
Below is what I've been doing since we got back from the lake. Vegetables everywhere, canned tomatoes, (rotel, Italian style, and stewed), bread and butter pickles, hot peppers for my stuffed roast I make, recipe here, bread and butter peppers (just made this one up) and string beans. I don't know how the women from the pioneer era did all the chores, canning, washing clothes on a rub board, homemade bread, sewing and mending, large families, etc...I just want to crawl into my little sewing room for a day, but I need to be thankful for all the fresh veggies.

LEAVE COMMENT ON THIS POST AND I'LL LET THE RANDOM ORG. PICK THE WINNER WHEN I GET BACK.
I'm off to Winnie Trade Days and then to the lake for a week, (with 3 grand babies, ages 6, 4 and 2). Please send all the energy you can spare to me and my husband.X
Then when I return there will be a surprise giveaway. I'm bringing it with me to the lake to work on so it might just end up being the fabric as the giveaway or maybe I'll get some sewing in at night like I did when my kids were young. But being older I might end up going to bed early too. So I have to say this giveaway is a Surprise. International friends welcome.
Just leave a comment to this question.
What is your favorite fabric color?

I've had this marked for awhile to make and it seems when we meet on Thursday for our sew-in, I stare at all that needs to be sewn and cannot make my mind up on what to take. My husband said the other morning, "I thought you were going to your sewing group," which took me forever to decide what to sew on. Well not anymore. I'm cutting out the quilt on top right hand side of the magazine and this is what I'm sewing on every Thursday till it's complete. The date on the magazine is 1999. We'll see how long this last, (stay focus, stay focus). It is all templates and batiks. I've had these quite awhile and now the first block is done (had to see about sewing circles) and many more cut out. Yeah!!! The block is just sitting on the other fat quarters.
The rest of my time is spent putting up vegetables from the garden, watching grand babies and sewing for the trade-days weekend coming up in a week.
104 degrees yesterday, so hoping everyone is staying cool.
