A very special giveaway

Good Monday to everyone!!  I am off work, and didn't even get a call to come in...wow!  A real day off!  I have been enjoying the above...the latest paperback from Jennifer Chiaverini!  Many of you enjoy her novels, and I do too.  So....here is your chance to receive one of these copies of her book, "The Giving Quilt".  Just leave me a comment, and I will ship anywhere in the world!

This one is a good one, as all Jennifer's books are.  This is near and dear subject to so many of us, as quilters, as giving people...about Project Linus and giving to others.  You will really enjoy this book, and I found it a fun and uplifting read.

"At Elm Creek Manor, the circle of quilters, is hard at work preparing for "Quiltsgiving."  Held annually the week after Thanksgiving, expert and novice quilters from near and far gather for a special winter session of quilt camp to make pieces for Project Linus.  As the week unfolds, the quilters respond to the question, "why do you give?"  in ways as varied as the life experiences that drew them to Elm Creek Manor. Each of the quilters, including a librarian, a teacher, a college student, and a quilt shop clerk  uses her unique talents to teach, inspire and give back to her fellow campers."

So there it is in a nutshell, folks...please leave a comment and one of these books and pins can be yours.  I will draw by random number on Friday, the 5th.

Have a great day, everyone!!

A few years ago, one of the women that works at our library (she knew I was a quilter) told me about Jennifer's book collection. I started with the 3rd book, I've read all but the latest, they're wonderful, so engrossing. I even got to meet Jennifer, when our LQS had her as a speaker when she put out her fabric line and "Sylvia's Wedding Quilt" book. Thank you for such a fun and quilty giveaway! ;-> Toni Anne

A few years one of my quilting friends was on the same cruise as Jennifer. Since then I have loved reading or listening to her books. The Aloha Quilt inspired me to go see Queen Lili'uokalani's quilt at the Iolani Palace the next time I visited Oahu. It was gorgeous!
Thanks for having this giveaway.
