500 Followers Giveaway!!

"Hey Harrington. Did ya hear the news that we have 500 followers? "

                                                "We do? That's so cool!"

"Yes, and now I demand a raise! After all, we do all the work around here."

"Yeah! You can count me in on that action Sugie. Uhhh...what will we get for our raise?" 

Well you two fuzzy assistants will get an extra treat tonight, but to thank all our friends/followers, we are going to have a giveaway. Something really special as 500 people hanging out with us is so incredibly cool and I'm so darn excited!! I can't believe it!!!!

So, the give away will be my original Fleur de Bunny Wallhanging! This quilt measures 34" x 34", it has hand stitching and machine stitching. It also has glass pearl beads! And as an extra bonus (sounding like an infomercal now) I'll even throw in a decorative hanger so you can hang it up!

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. Remember, followers get 2 chances!! I'll pick the winner this Sunday, January 9th. Didn't I tell ya that the year of the rabbit was going to be fun?!?

Good luck everyone and thank you so very much for spending time with me and the bunnies. We love ya bunches!

xx, shell, sugie and harrington
