First of all, a big happy cake day to my older sister, Lee Ann! Lee, since it's your birthday, I decided to give a present... to one of my readers!
This give away is going to be so different, you're going to shake your heads in wonderment. Or confusion. (But as long as your head shake of confusion looks like a head shake of wonderment, I'll allow it.)
One of my frequent commenters, Baba, ( I call her Mom.) (You know, I really should call her now.) (I mean phone her now. Not call her "Now", because I really do call her Mom, you know.) (I think I just took you on a tangent you really didn't want to go on, did you?) (Sorry.) is a quilter, one of the better ones out there. No really! Look it up. (Um, on second thought, don't look it up.)
She has graciously consented to making a quilt for one of my readers! (It only took two days of withholding her granddaughter's kisses and negotiations DID break down at one point, but it worked.) (You're welcome.)
Here it is!
(Sprite sold separately.) (She's on back order.) (Why couldn't I stop at the first joke? The second one was definitely overkill.)
Itn't purty? It's a 56 by 72 inch work of one of a kind wonders, full of spring colors and warm enough to chase even the worst chills away. Mom picked the colors and prints herself, ensuring there is no other quilt like it in the world. She then spent hundreds of hours cutting, sewing, (insert other quilt making verbage here), just so you could have this unique winter warmer.I believe the pattern she used is called "Split Decision" in case some of you closet quilters are wondering. (Then again, why would you want to quilt a closet? Odd..) She calls it an oversize lap quilt, I call it "Mah Give Away!"
So, you, yes, you!, can be a part of this Give Away of Awesomeness, not to be confused with HeatherPride's Mini Van of Awesomeness, and all you have to do is leave me a comment. That's it? That's it! (Oh, and make sure your email is filled out when you enter your comment so I can get in touch with you.... And THAT'S it, I swear!)
We will pick a winner on February 7 by using a complicated system of finger counts (And if the comment count goes beyond 10, we have toes as a back up.) and then my mom will pick a winner. Or we'll use that random number spitter-outer which tends to keep things fair. Meh, whatever's closest.
The one who wins will get this gorgeous handmade quilt just in time for Spring, although you can definitely cuddle up in this cold weather now. (Unless you live in Florida. Then you just crank your air conditioning on high and PRETEND it's cold outside.) We'll also throw in a box of Shout Color Catcher to keep your quilt looking great after washing. (Which is true. Blue sheds a lot which causes us to throw our quilts into the wash on a regular basis.)
There you have it! A quilt and a box of Shout to keep your quilt looking perfect!
So, leave me a comment, win yourself a quilt, and snuggle up with a good movie and some popcorn.(Ooh. I should also throw in a box of popcorn! This just keeps getting better!) (John is totally going to kill me.)
All right! A quilt, a box of Shout, and a box of microwave popcorn! (Oy.)
(But what about the movie?) Shut up! Shut up!
There is a catch. No direct family members of Sprite or Sprite's Keeper or Sprite's subsidiaries (i.e. Rupert, Bear, Harry, Blue) may be eligible for the prize. Which means if I have to feed you or speak to you on a regular basis, you probably fall into this category, so you're out. But everyone else is IN! IN! IN!
All right, enough dawdling. One comment per person, please.(Leaving more than one comment disrupts the randomness of how we pick the winner and frankly, makes me twitchy. So, play fairly, people!) Contest ends at 12:01 AM, February 7 and the winner will be posted that day. Residents in US and Canada only. No Nevada entries. Ah, what the hell! Nevada too! I feel like GIVING!
