Polka Dot Swap

I am in a cute little swap over at Craft Buds, for a polka dot charm swap. Run over and take a look - here is my selection.
The swap is limited to 28 people, you could still get in if you hurry!

Giveaway from FatQuarter Shop and Melissa

Melissa at Sew Bitter Sweet Designs is hooking up with the Fat Quarter Shop for a give-a-way - take a look at her post with details here.

I am sharing the fun, but hope that I am the winner - I have been drooling over the Prairie Paisley II and would love to have the Lazy Angle Ruler too.

Good Luck to my great followers :)

The rules are here

But here is a quickie from the site:
What you need to do:
  1. Go to The Fat Quarter Shop website and choose 12 coordinating prints and 3 solids from their selection. There are various ways of browsing - I started off in the 'modern fabric' section and went from there. 
  2. Either a) create a blog entry about your set of fabrics;  or b) if you don't have a blog, upload them somewhere they can be seen in one link - eg flickr, picasa, etc. You must include pictures of your fabrics. You can 'borrow' these from the FQS site. It would be very helpful to the judges if you could do a photo collage of your various prints. Instructions below if you don't know how - new IT skills are always useful!
There are great tips on the site how to do this. 
Even if you don't win it would be LOADS of  FUN!
