A Sentimental Journey Block 6 and The Giveaway!

Well here we are again my friends, the first of the month already!!

This month I chose Laughter as my theme because well...I like to laugh and have fun! I want my wrinkles to come from laughter instead of worry. How about you?

So here's the block. You can go to my Website under Free Designs and get it. Remember, it's never to late to start on this journey and I still have floss kits available if you would like to purchase one. IMPORTANT NOTE*** Thanks to the lovely Jade who just left a comment that ding dong me didn't put an "E" on the end of Shakespeare!!! OMG!!! Was I thinking about pears???? Hmmm.. So, when you stitch your design please add the "E". I'm going to go back and add it to mine!! See...told ya I was goofy! Thanks again Jade! Hugs!

This is what my blocks look like so far. Half way we are! This is going to be a great project when we're done. Not your typical quilt or stitch BOM. I wanted a little something different.

Ok, now on to this months giveaway! You remember my shopping bag from the other month? Well so many of you liked it, that I went and bought one for the giveaway. Then I decided I would throw in a roll of my favorite wrapping paper. Remember when David got it at Target after Christmas?? Then I found that cute little note pad and pen and guess what??? Yep...it matched! hee,hee,hee. Then there is a white candle that has the most gorgeous scent and last but not least, a ball of Valdani 3 strand floss in the color Monochrome. Yes...I had to throw it in because it matched. Ya'll know I'm goofy like that!

Anyhoo...all you have to do to be entered is leave a comment on This post. If you are a follower of my blog  say "I'm following" and you get counted twice. You can sign up to follow on my left sidebar. The winner will be announced on June 7th.

Good Luck!

Jade said...

Love the stitchery, but the spelling freak in me is compelled to point out that there is supposed to be an "e" at the end of Shakespeare, unless it's just the camera angle that's keeping me from seeing it. :(

I like your quote you selected this month!! I also like you took a photo of all the pockets so far. I haven't figured out what you are doing yet, but I know it will be really clever and beautiful.

Rebecca said...

Hi Sweetie
Your quilting is fabulous...love the quilt block! Wish I had time to quilt, I used to do a lot of it and even belonged to a quilt club, one of the few clubs I have ever joined!
Hope you had a wonderful Memorial weekend... I spent mine sick, not bad but just enough to take the energy out of my sails.
Blessings to you this week
Rebecca
