A Sentimental Journey and a Giveaway

Well my friends. We made it. Our last block on this Sentimental Journey. What a fun journey this has been. You may notice that I sign all of my posts with "xx" for hugs. I'm a huggy person and always have been. Something about a hug just makes me feel that everyone and everything is good, ok and that all is right in the world. I thought this was the perfect quote for our final block. I have made so many wonderful friends this year through my blog and your comments and emails are always a hug to me. Thank you for sharing the journey.

I decided I'm going to wait to show you the entire finished piece until December 15th. Most of us are busy right now and this way I can have another giveaway to thank you! So be sure to come back then to see the finished piece. For now, you can hop over to my SHOP and get your pattern.

Our giveaway this time is one of my Wishing Stars. I really do believe that all things are possible if we wish hard enough. It's just a matter of focusing our attention on the good that is around us, the simple and beautiful gifts that we are given and the best in everyone. Wrap all these things up with a hug and life is downright perfect.

I will pick the winner this Sunday, December 5th. All you have to do is leave a comment on This Post. As always, my followers/friends get two chances. Remember to say you're following even though I do know who most of you are. It just makes it easier for me to count. :)

xx, shell, sugie and harrington
