Summer celebration giveaway

Summer vacation is nearly here! I think that is as good of a reason as any to host a giveaway. Summer makes me think of the outdoors greening up, so I have a 5 FQ pack to offer up this time. The fabric is Sweetwater's Make Life. To enter simply leave a comment telling me 1 thing you look forward to this summer. For a bonus entry, stop over to my swap partner's blog (Heather @ A Creative Pursuit) and leave her a comment about one of her cute projects. I happened to see she didn't have a lot of traffic, so make sure to be extra friendly. Then come back and leave me a comment letting me know you did so. Heather doesn't know you are coming, so I think that will be a nice surprise, don't you? (http://acreativepursuit.blogspot.com/)

Looking forward to getting lots of sewing done. It's way too hot here in the summer to spend much time outside, so I get extra time in my "sewing room". Thanks for the giveaway.

This year, at school, I have been assigned to the 4th grade. I want you all to know 4th graders aren't little cute and huggable like the younger ones. They really do things that annoy you. I am looking forward to my 2 months off to read and sew and relax :)
