yummy fabric! I recommend Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs detective novels, set in the inter war years and wonderfully written
Thank you for making the giveaway open to internationals xx

Have you read anything by Jennifer McMahon? Her books are a little dark, part fairy tale, part ghost story, and hard to put down!

I decided to jump aboard and participate in the Sew, Mama, Sew! Giveaway Day.  It is so much fun to see new blogs - not to mention the possibility of winning some great stuff!

In this giveaway, two lucky people will receive a mini layer cake of Echino fabrics (twelve 9 inch squares of various Spring 2011 Echino prints.)   Perfect for small projects, bags and zipper pouches!

To be entered to win just leave a comment.   If you don't know what to say, recommend a good book.  I am in desperate need of some new reading material!  :)  I love sci-fi, historical fiction and good young adult reads and I have exhausted the supply of decent reading material in our tiny small town library.

Some of the things that I have made recently
Yup, I live in small town Iowa (the corn is just starting to come up!) with my husband, four little girls, cat and six chickens.  I love staying home with my four girls (and another on the way) but quilting provides a welcome creative break from the everyday mom stuff.  I am rather obsessively obsessed.  Somehow quilting is much more fun than washing dishes.  :)

Last year I decided that I need to expand my quilting skills and started the We Can Do It! Skill Builder Sampler.  The Skill Builder Sampler is a series of quilt block tutorials that teach basic to advanced quilting skills.  The Sampler started last year with basic blocks and skills and we will be making "There-is-no-way-I-can-make-that! Blocks" in June to finish off the sampler.   What a journey!  Feel free to join in at anytime and check out the amazing blocks people have made in the Skill Builder Sampler Flickr Group.

For a second chance to win, hop on over and check out the We Can Do It! Skill Builder Sampler and tell me what your favorite block tutorial is or what quilting skill you would like to learn.  I would like to continue to post skill building quilt blocks tutorials in the future.

PS.  Giveaway is open to anyone anywhere - just make sure I can contact you!  I will pick two winners on Friday.
