  20. I'd love to win one of the pretty fabric bundles! I'd like to see a utube video by Me and My Sister's new collection. They project so much fun in quilting that it makes one want to start a new project right away!

  21. Must admit I'm not a Tweeter, so I'm relying on my fellow bloggers by going with 88. Facebook posts? I'd be right on that! πŸ˜‰
