May for Me - Birthday Week

AND MAY FOR YOU with Marcia

I usually do a special May for Me each year.  In the past it has been with Marcia and Tonya - then Marcia - this year of Simplify, I toned down my May for Me.  More of enjoying family and life.


But what's a Birthday without a party?  So I talked with my dear friend Kris over at Lavendar Quilts to discuss how to throw a fun party for all.  Now I have done business with Kris and her lovely Etsy shop - that's where I got the great lamb fabric.

So here it is - 4 give aways - yes 4!!.. Two for my US followers and two for my out-of-states followers.  You get to pick your prize too.  Any jelly roll or layer cake that you fancy over  at Kris' Etsy Shop.  I pay for the prize and the shipping.

Simply tell me in ONE comment if you are a follower (must be a follower), US or OOS, and which jelly roll or layer cake you would love to win (which means you have to go visit her shop).  I will leave comments open until May 23, 10pm (EST) and post/contact winners the next day.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  1. I've been a follower for four or five years. Read a few posts in Lavender Quilts' blog. Kris makes me smile. Especially the post about her finding a collection of blocks she doesn't remember. That could be me. I like the Red, Blue and White jelly roll because I think it would make a very nice QOV quilt.
    Happy Birthday Dear Sharon ... Happy Birthday To You.

  6. Oh yes, I am a follower ... sometimes no-reply if it gets un-fixed as I think google+ and bloglovin are in battle mode ...What is not to like about Union Blues ... or any blues, for that matter. You could not live in Japan and hate blue!

  7. Happy birthday! I have been getting your posts in my inbox (e-mail follower) and enjoying seeing your scrappy projects. I am in Kyoto, Japan and would be thrilled to win a 25th and Pine jelly roll from Lavendar Quilts for a little bit of Christmas spirit in Japan. ;-)

  14. My goodness, Kris makes it hard to choose - she has a ridiculous amount of things that I would love! I've narrowed it down to Crazy for Reds, though - just dithering over jelly or layer or jelly or layer or jelly...
    Jelly.
    I put you on my Feedly list a couple of months ago, after stumbling over a pinterest pin and following it back. I always love to see what you're up to!
