Who wants some Sweetwater Pure fabric?

*** this giveaway is now closed. thanks to everyone who took part - you are amazing peots! ***

way back in June of last year, i blogged here about how much i was drooling over this fabric. i bought a whole fat quarter bundle which included all the fabrics in this collection. and i still love it so much!

this is what i started to make with it: the hubby's quilt. he loves it, but i still have to finish quilting it. maybe sometime this year... :)

then i thought, how can one enjoy a good thing without sharing it?... soooooo.... i'm going to give away a charm pack of this delicious fabric! interested? read on.

included in this charm pack are two squares of almost every fabric in this collection. i say almost because i used up one fat quarter entirely in a different project i was working on. so, that's 35 fabrics of two squares each: 70 squares of fabric. that's better than a charm pack!

isn't she gorgeous just sitting there awaiting her winner?

well, here's what you have to do:

simply leave a comment expressing how much you would really like to win this. i would really like to see some creative responses... poems are the best! ;) the winner will be selected by a random number generator. BUT the person with the most creative response may just win a little something too... just sayin'.

for an extra entry, blog about this giveaway, or facebook/twitter etc. just come back and let me know you did. one extra entry per media announcement!

giveaway will close at midnight (mountain time) March 2nd with the winner announced March 3rd. good luck!
