"Celebrating Spring" Giveaway

You will notice in the picture below that I have 2 copies of this Stash-Buster book. My DB who is living in London right now gave me one for Christmas, not knowing I already had a copy. He said the salesperson assured him I wouldn't have this book because the author was English.
I will be giving a copy of this book to one lucky person.
Below there is 1 yard of fabric from the new Cheep Talk line from Connecting Threads.
I will be giving this fabric away to another lucky person.


My favorite thing about Spring is the emergence of Spring flowers and the fact that there's more daylight. What is your favorite thing about Spring? Leave a comment telling me what your favorite thing is about spring, for 1 entry. Leave a comment and become a follower for 2 entries. Please let me know which of the items you prefer in your comment.

I will choose the winners on Tuesday March 16th!

Good Luck!

Favorite thing about spring...honestly, I love the spring fashion. I got to wear an adorable WHITE dress that didn't have sleeves to church on Sunday...that was definitely a high for me.

I love the longer days we finally get after a long dark winter!! Since I work all day, I like to be able to drive home with the sun still out! (And in a few more weeks it may be light enough to stop at the park for a quick walk before it gets dark!!)
I also became a follower of your blog!
(If I win, I would love the book...but either one is nice!)

I savor every minute of Spring because it only lasts about 4 weeks before it hits 100 degrees.
I love to go outside and read while it is not too hot.

I love the book but the fabric is cute too.

My favorite thing about Spring is being able to come out of hibernation after the long, dark, cold Winter blah! I have a stash that needs busting, so the book would be a nice one to have. I followed your link from the "Quilt With Us" blog.

I love Spring time because the wildflowers decorate our Texas pastures for miles, the trees turn green, the laughter of children rings through the neighborhood because they can play outside again, and finally, I can wear sandals.
Thanks you for infusing my days with so many ways to be creative!

I like the warmth that comes with spring, burning off the coldness in the air. I'd prefer the book - haven't seen that one yet.

Oh Spring....The birds singig in the morning is my favorite thing...and flowers just peeking up thru the groung.

Jessica Christensen said...

Lots to love about spring -- the warmth, the flowers, the birds. I do love when doves nest in my empty hanging baskets on my front porch. I just leave them alone and plant after their babies are hatched and gone.

I think I would prefer the book. I need to bust my stash! Thanks for a great giveaway.

Doina said...

My favorite thing about spring is finally being able to get my hands dirty in my garden and yard! All the time we can spend outside and how late it stays light out!

Awesome giveaway, by the way! LOL

My favorite thing about spring is the crocus and other early blooming flowers and definately the smell of the first grass cut of the season. I would love the book, and I am signing as a follower, please sign mine also

I love the song of birds in the morning after a long winter of silence and to look and find the very first snowdrop peeking out of the ground.
Thanks for an awesome giveaway.

Jessica said...

flowers...especially yellow ones. and starting my garden! I'd prefer the fabric. Thanks :)

tong said...

Like you, I also love the flowers in the spring! Flowers outside, flowers from the florists, and flowers I bring into my house to brighten up the days!

I would prefer to receive that cute fabric please! Thank you so much for the giveaway!

Stacey said...

My favorite thing? Seeing my daffodils and tulips pop out of the ground. I have a super sweet embroidery design that would look adorable with that fabric. Thanks. Your blog is so nice.

my favourite things are being woken up by birdsong and not driving home form work in the dark!

Marcia said...

Please enter me in your giveaway (prefer fabric). My favorite spring things are the bluebirds and robins, and redbuds and pear trees in bloom.

Kristen said...

My apple trees start to get leaves and usually it is one lone branch that begins to bloom. Plus, I get an itch to plant all things that are green.

Kathy said...

My favorite thing about spring is getting out to dig around in the dirt, planting a garden. I love the smell and feel of the earth!

Exuberant Color said...

My favorite thing about spring is COLOR after all of the brown grass and white snow.

I don't have that book and it looks like fun.

Hi there
I have just come across your blog and signed up to be a follower. Thank you for offering a giveaway - very generous; I especially loke the look of the book - I haven't seen that one beore.
Here in New Zealand autumn is advancing but I do love spring. It is the time of newborn calves and lots more farmwork but that means lots more outdoors time which I love almost as much as my patchwork and quilting!!

So sorry I missed this, but my favorite thing about spring is opening up the house and letting the breezes in, clearing out the stale, winter air.
