A giveaway to keep you warm...

Have I been away that long from blogland? My mother and step father decided spontaneously to come to visit for two weeks. I was already having trouble being able to blog as I am busy making 13 gifts for my quilt group Christmas party and my swap gift for the party. As you can imagine, it is all top secret until after the party. It is also a busy time as I decorate the house for Christmas.

In the meantime, a gift to my blogging friend Barbara arrived. I was so pleased she likes it (photo above). I made her a cowl of her own which you can see above.

I had made this blue one for my mother but now she decided that she wanted a red one instead. I already crocheted her a cowl just after she arrived last week. She and I thought it would be a good idea to give away the blue cowl. Here it is and it could be keeping you warm for the winter if you leave a comment on this blog entry. If you are not a blogger, you must leave your email address in your comment in order to enter. I need to be able to contact you if you win. *grins* The giveaway is open until Sunday, December 11th. Good luck!

Edit: This giveaway is open to everyone no matter where you live. So yes, I will send it to Spain or any country if your name is drawn.

We have been below freezing here for what seems like forever...grins...so a cowl would be lovely to help keep me warm :) Normally we are fairly mild where we live but a nice blast of artic air with a heavy windstorm has dropped our temperatures...I hope you and your mom have a great visit and have fun with all of your gift making...hugs from CA.

Hej Heidi, leuk om even van je te horen, het was zo stil, maar je bent dus erg druk met alle cadeautjes maken. Gezellig dat je ouders op bezoek zijn geweest.
Mooie sjaals, maar ik sla even over, zo hebben anderen meer kans.
Fijne adventtijd, groetjes

Vicki said...

Yes, I was wondering about you since no recent posts on The Cranberry Chronicle but, yes, it's a busy time of the year and I'm just glad you're enjoying it with family and friends. Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, Heidi and Jos,
