Follower Alert!!!

A couple of weeks ago I promised a giveaway for my followers when I reached 600 - it snuck up on me but I'm up to 614 now!  So as promised, if you're a follower and you're interested in these two items:


I have the November/December issue of QuiltMania - a lovely magazine.  And a jelly roll of Cherry Christmas by Aneela Hoey for Moda.  At one of the after Christmas sales I bought one for me and one for you!  :)

Here are the rules for this giveaway - please follow them strictly.
1.  Leave ONLY ONE comment telling me how you follow my blog - on the Followers list on the right sidebar, on a reader, through e-mail subscription, etc.

That's it - that's the only rule.  If you haven't been following but you want to then please add your name to the Followers over there on the right and leave a comment telling me you did so.

This is going to be a pretty fast giveaway - I'll choose a number on Friday.  Good luck!

blessings, Marlene

I follow you using e-mail. I stalk so many blogs that if I did all of them in my reader every day I wouldn't even have time to use the bathroom. This is a very addicting habit. I think I started following you a year or so ago from one of the hops or a swap that I was interested in. Either way, I really enjoy following or stalking you. Congratulations on reaching this milestone.
