Some Teasers and a GIVEWAY!!!

I thought I'd tease you a bit and show you the quilt kits that will be coming in soon for Threadheads Online!!



This is from the Alliance collection.....a GORGEOUS kit using 1830-1840 reproduction fabrics...and this will come in a LOVELY tin! WOW! Measures 92 x 92. $129. Simple nine patches! I love them so!!!

The next one is from Barbara Brackman...civil wars! Oh yeah!



The pattern for this will be in the December/January Quilters Newsletter magazine! Be sure and grab one! You'll need it to go along with this yummy Civil War Home Front fabric kit!!! This one measures 79 1/2 x 79 1/2. $105. I am in so much trouble...this is another definite do for me!!!

And oh my GOSH! You've heard about it....I've dreamed about it....and LOOK!!! From THE FRENCH GENERAL!



Words cannot even begin to describe....I am so so so in love with this entire fabric line AND this kit!!!! This one will measure 80 x 80 and comes with the BAG! $89.

Now...let me say that I have an EXTREMELY limited number of each coming, so if you'd like to reserve one, or you'd like me to let you know the second the UPS driver arrives with them...I will be happy to do so! I'm not expecting the first of these to arrive until September so there's still time to gather your wits. ;o) AND...if kits aren't your thing...I will be getting bundles of each of these fabric lines...and then some! So if you don't get one of the few kits, you can still get the fabrics and do your own thing!

And....since you were so kind as to read this far and let me promote Threadheads Online stuff....I'm going to have a GIVEAWAY!!! It's been a while!

Since I SO love the French General stuff.....I'm going to giveaway a couple of the accessory items from the line. Those of you that already have these lovely pieces, I'm sure you wouldn't mind winning more..these make great gifts!!!




The sewing book! Perfect for stitchers!!

OR you can select the set of tape measures...



These are great! Ticking tape measures...I love them! AND they come in the cute little bags....this whole French General line has me going ga-ga!

If you'd like to be entered in the drawing, just leave a comment....and as always..if you link this to your blog and let me know, you'll be entered again! Please make sure to note your email so I have a way to get in touch with you if you win!!

Two winners will be drawn on Sunday, August 16! Maybe by then I'll have some more entertaining news to share...and at least perhaps a sock with a heel! The sock knitting installment class went well! I'm going to have to probably read the pattern a couple times before I just 'get it', but I trust our most capable teacher, Judy, knows of what she speaks and I will end up with socks with heels and covered toes! So exciting!!!

Okay---that's it for tonight folks! As always, thanks so much for stopping by!

*Peace!

I love the sewing book, I looked at it when I was at my LNS, but chose to buy threads instead because that's what I needed. I love seeing what is new and soon to be released....I love the new line. I love homemade quilts, nothing says "love" better than being cuddled under the warmth of a beautiful stitched quilt.
