12 of Hearts February Block and a Giveaway!!

Ok! Here we go!!!!!!!!!
This is the block for February! I loooooooooove this one!

Hop over to my Shop to get your pattern.  I have already made two extra's! These are so fast to make!

I have 10 floss kits left, so be sure to get one while the getting is good! Twenty two kits have already been sold!

I also added my sashing strips between the blocks. The measurements are in my shop.
Ok, so let's get on to the giveaway!!!


I do loooooooooove books and love to share them with others. So I decided to give away not one, but two books this month!!  Books by the editors of Victoria Magazine!

One has some fun projects and


the other has lots of fabulous inspiration!




To enter the giveaway all you have to do is leave a comment on this post. If you are an "official follower" one that is officially signed up on the right of my blog roll, you get two chances! Easy as that!
I will pick the winner on Wednesday, February 16th using the random number generator!

Good luck and happy stitching!

Hi Shell, I have my new design and thread. They are the right size to sit and do while at the hospital. My life is a little upside down, but I am getting some much needed me time at the moment with hubby in the nursing home getting some more physical therapy and occupation therapy. I am catching up this morning with my special friends. Have a great weekend. Your Missouri Friend.
