I have been working on a mini quilt to give away to one lucky blog reader to celebrate one of my favorite days - Valentine's Day - a day to celebrate all the people you love! I didn't sign up to the "One World, One Heart" event this year...I got a ton of spam and junk mail following last my participation. So I decided to have my own giveaway for my blog readers this February! I even trudged out to the back yard to take a photo of the quilt in the snow, but then I cropped the photo so much that you can't even see if it's taken on a snow pile or my design wall!
Juicy Bead Ladies at a bead show last October. You can see a close up of the beads here. The flowers are held on with a tiny white seed bead in the centre. If you'd like to own this little "Kisses and a Hug" mini quilt, leave a comment on this post and I'll draw the winner on Sunday February 14th.
And what about some candy and chocolate!?!? Since I wrote a post last week (read it here) about quirky things, here is another Canadian quirk....Smarties. In the U.S., Smarties are little candies sold in rolls...see a photo of them in Judy's post here. In Canada, Smarties are little bits of chocolate with a candy coating...you eat the red ones last :) And the little candies sold in rolls are called "Rockets" here. So, I will send along some quirky Canadian candy with the Valentine's parcel!
