402!

Can you believe it? It's been almost two years since I joined this wonderful community and started making many wonderful new friends. Today is my 402nd post!

I struggled to come up with a really good giveaway to celebrate this milestone and thank you all for your neverending encouragement and support. It has definitely played a giant roll in keeping the creative juices flowing over here.

So here it is...


Leave a comment on this post between today and 12pm PST on Friday (the 6th).
I will use the random number generator to generate 2 winners.
If you win, you'll get to choose any 4 fat quarters (or 2 half yards or 1 yard) from the fabrics in my store.

And, because I want everyone to be able to get a little something, between today and Sunday, you can get 30% off your entire order in the store.
Just enter 402THIRTY as the coupon code when you check out.


Because I couldn't have a completely picture-less post, I played around in EQ5 a little and came up with a scrappy look for Geese in the Forest.
Scrappy Geese in the Forest
