Mystery Giveaway and a New Blog from Colorado

I'm not tellin' what's in this box. You have to win it to find out. See below.

I couldn't resist this photo of Lily Bear: great smile, chubby toes, couture outfit, the works! It's from Heather's brand new quilt blog called How Do You Do This Again? See her selvage bag there too.

How to Win: Visit this new blog and sign up to Follow, or leave a comment, or just take a look. Then come back here and leave a comment. Nothing fancy. It's a random drawing. (Sorry, you can't win the baby!)

I commented on Heather's blog. And "no thanks" on the baby. She's adorable, but I've got three grandies of my own! They're 15 months, 8 months and 9 weeks. Enough already.

Thanks for your giveaway, Karen. You're being as generous and nice as can be!
