A heartwarming giveaway...

Three days left in January including today and guess what??? I am sticking to my UFOs only so far. Yep...no new starts as hard as it is. My willpower is holding its own although the temptations are great indeed! *grins*

I spent some time yesterday afternoon setting up my Valentine's tree and a few decorations here and there. I now have to get my red quilts out to hang on my quilt ladder today. While getting things out, I came across my heart penny rug candle mat. I have never used this after making it for a tutorial back in 2008. So I thought it would be fun to give this to one of you to say Happy Valentine's Day and celebrate my achieving my goals of no new starts for January's end.


If you would like a chance to win this penny rug, just leave a comment on this post. If you do not have a blog yourself, please include your email address on your comment so I can contact you if you do win. I am pulling the winner's name on Wednesday, February 1st when I will also start a new project. A day of double celebrating being able to have the excitement of a new start along with sharing something I made with one of you! Good luck...

Just a note...those who commented on my last blog post will receive an extra chance at this giveaway. Thank you so much for your comments!

Hi Heidi, your valentine's tree sounds good, can we see a picture sometime? I'm holding a small dinner party on the 11th February for my two sisters and their hubbies and am planning lots of 'hearty' themes for food and music, so any ideas would be great. I would love to take part in your 'heartwarming giveaway' please. Patricia

As much as I ADORE penny rugs - and this one is stunning - I know my kitties would steal it for their own nefarious purposes, so I'll sit out the giveaway. I just wanted to compliment you on it! :)

Oh please show a photo of your Valentine tree. I keep telling myself I will have decorations for each holiday, but still nothing, and certainly not Valentines Day.

I'm still working the UFO's. I tried to tell myself if I started a new one, and set it aside that would make it a UFO!!! Its tempting, but I just keep looking at my finished pile.

blessings, jilly

HI!!
I have had a Valentine's Tree for the last couple of years. It helps ease Christmas out of the house. It is only a small table tree (skinny type) with mini clear lights and different Valentine decorations I have collected over my life time. Includes some of the old Hallmark Valentine pins. Is fun!! Really enjoyed your blog and will check in again.
