April Giveaway!

This month's giveaway is for a Smartek mini iron and 2 fat quarters.  The mini iron is oooooooh so cute!  And yes- it really does work.  It has a little cord and everything.  The fat quarters have just a little sparkle in them, in case you have a project that needs a little bling.

To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post.  That's all there is to it! 

If you want a SECOND entry, tell me that you are following this blog, or start to follow this blog..

For a THIRD entry, mention this giveaway on your blog.  You can post it on your sidebar or link to my blog in a post about the giveaway... whatever you like.  Just give me a shout out.

I'll draw a name at random on May 1st..  I'll post the name of the winner and I'll send you a private email, as well.  If you are a "no reply" blogger (no email in your profile) you will need to check back on May 1st to see if you've won.  If I have no way to contact you, I'll give you a couple of days and then I'll have to draw another name.

I'd love to have that little iron!
Perfect for classes--and my current
English paper piecing project!! (I'd let my hubby have my old one all to himself. He's taken up quilting in his retirement.)

Hi Sue,
What a nice iron for someone- it looks like a great thing to take to a class or retreat. I am not sure that I am a follower but I do have you on my blog list- I think I may be a follower as well but am not positive.
Thanks for hosting another lovely giveaway.
Regards,
Anna

I'm sure the iron is a really smooth operator.
Probably doesn't do the English grid though. But hey, does it matter

great to click on!

I have an American friend who would love it x x x
