Free Pattern Giveaway!!

Let's have a free pattern giveaway!!

Summer, here where I am, is coming to a close. School is getting ready to start again, and we are trying to fit in as many fun things as we possibly can! It makes the last few weeks busy, but in a good way!

Let me know what your plans are for the last few weeks of this season, and you'll be entered to win a free pattern of your choice from my shop! Even if it's a different season where you are, let me know what you enjoy doing at that time. Tomorrow afternoon I will draw 3 winners from a hat, and post them on my Facebook page.

If you haven't stopped by my shop lately, take a look for some new patterns that I've added. I also have a big bunch of new things that I'm working on, so there will be plenty of new releases this fall and winter. Fun!

Good luck with the giveaway--and watch for the winners tomorrow.

Have a great afternoon!!
