Have I Got A Book For You!

 I've got a book for you, actually books for TWO of you! Oh, and as a bonus, a consolation prize too.  The publishers of Jennifer Chiaverini's latest paperback: The Giving Quilt have generously donated two copies for this blog giveaway. They've also included some cloisonné pins for all of you Elm Creek fans and I'll include a few of those with both the  grand book prizes and also with the smaller, spiral-bound journal, consolation prize.  All you need to do is leave a comment (be sure I have your e-mail address) before the  end of the day (where I live ~ east coast, USA) on April 7th; I'll draw the first two names for the books and the third name will win my little "surprise" gift, I'll announce the winners on Monday, April 8th.
This photo was taken right before we left for church yesterday, on Easter; turquoise was the color
of the day! You would have thought that my daughter and I shopped together; we didn't,
but we're intuitive when it come to spring colors. (Lucy Ann was not a willing photo participant.)
We had a joyous and full weekend with all the grandchildren playing and eating together here,
I'll report more on that later this week, I haven't downloaded all the photos yet.
Spring weather is slowly making a return to North Carolina... none too soon for me!

Life is Good!

I read some of her very first books but haven't read one in a long time. Thanks for the giveaway.

I have the book, so no need to enter me, but I had to say--looks like a couple of sisters and a little girl, not three generations!

Amy said...

I would have loved spying your turquoise trio in the pews! My DH and I actually coordinated in... Pink! Thank you for the chance to win the latest from Jennifer.

Love the thought of spring, alas today I once again saw snow falling. ( It didn't last long enough once it landed but it give you an idea of how
cold it is)

3 generations of beautiful ladies! I would say turquoise is definitely your color! Spring has definitely come to the Pacific Northwest. Everything is bursting out in beautiful blooms and gobs of pollen....now where did that box of tissues go?

Beautiful spring outfits on all of you. My mother and I used to find ourselves purchasing and wearing similar colors too. It makes you wonder if that color sense is genetic.

I have read The Giving Quilt and it is a great story - recommend it to all. Thus, I do not need to win one of the books, but I sure would love to win an Elm Creek Quilts pin or your mystery prize.

You all look very pretty and Springy in your teal!
