Grow Your Blog - Giveaway Closed

Hi, My name Amy.  This is my very first year to participate
 in the Grow Your Blog Hop at
2 Bags Full
 
 
2 Bags Full



Well, I thought I would tell you a bit about
myself. 

I started blogging almost two years ago
after a little contest I entered,
before that I really didn't even have a clue
what a blog was! 
This was also the time I started quilting.
Since then, I haven't stopped.
I love meeting new people and
some great friends along the way.

Here is just a few things that I blog about....



 
 



I love to do just about anything crafty and
share it with all of you. 
I also love to join hops
over with Mdm Samm at Sew We Quilt.
It is a great way to challenge yourself
and meet some great artists.



I am having a little
Giveaway,
But it is a surprise...

LOVE surprises..

Do You trust me??
Maybe a little fabric
or some great thread?

Here are the rules!!

1) It's open to anyone and all you have to do is leave a
comment telling me what your favorite hobby is. 

2) If you are a already follower, new or old,
you can leave a second comment saying you follow.

That is 2 chances to win.
The giveaway is open until February 15th
when the winner will be announced.
 
Good luck!

Congratulations to Vicki!
 
Thank you to my  friends new and old for visiting.
