Birthday Giveaway

On February 28th 2010 I pushed the Publish Post button and A Garden of Threads
was born. I cannot believe one year has passed. 
 I have enjoyed the year, meeting new bloggers,
 playing along on the memes and learning something new everyday. 
To celebrate this 'milestone' I am having a giveaway, a way for me to say thank you,
 for all the wonderful comments and inspiration you have shown over the past year.  



Included is a quilted table topper (which I made), a plate and a scissor pals.


A closeup of the plate.


 Scissor Pals can be attached to your scissors.
I have one attached to my good quilting scissors and everyone knows not to touch.

If you are interested in winning this giveaway, please leave me a comment
 requesting your name be added to the pot.
I will post the winner on February 28th.

Take care!!!

What a lovely giveaway and great blog. I like the idea of the scissor pals but fear that nothing will stop my husband from using my scissors and not replacing them!
