And More Great Giveaways!

Incredibly, there are still more giveaways going on by some of my favorite blogs and new favorite blogs!

Here's one from The Old Farmhouse Gathering. If you love PRIMITIVE, you'll love this giveaway!



There are so many items in this giveaway, that you have to scroll down a bit further to see the picture of all the items included, then click on it to enlarge it, to see it all! Then there's a couple more items that will be given away a few days after the basket giveaway. I really don't have enough room here to describe everything, so you'll just have to take my word for it & go check it out!

Next up I have Pam of Rooster Inn Primitives giving away some of her prim punkins! You heard me right - I said PUNKINS, as in more than one! I'm talking one large one and five small ones! A whole patch is goin' on there!

Pam is hosting a give away. Winner to be picked on Oct. 10 click on the pic for details. Pam says she got her love of sewing from her mom, who used to make Raggedy Anns in all sizes! I have a special place in my heart for RA's, because when my brother & I were in 4th & 5th grade, my mother made us Raggedy Ann & Andy costumes for the school's costume contest. My brother, being younger, went first with his class and won a ribbon. My class followed and I actually heard the judges talking, noticing my costume & how it went together with the winner from the previous class. So they decided that since there was already a winner in the family, they went in another direction to pick my grade's winner. It kind of hurt my feelings a little bit, but I realized why they did what they did and was so proud of my mother for making the costumes in the first place, and for staying up so late to sew barn red yarn in rows across the sleeve of Daddy's tee shirt that had the open end sewn together, so it would fit like a skullcap over our heads. She actually made two of those & I remember her waking me up to try it on for a minute, then letting me go back to sleep. That was a wonderful memory in and of itself, but the story continues! When my Daddy passed away, and Mom decided to move into a smaller place, I helped her go through the attic and lo and behold, I found both costumes, complete, along with the pattern! I gave the Andy set to my brother and (sometime) I want to either buy a doll or make one, then use the pattern (which is for both costumes and 2 sizes of dolls) to make the outfit. I'd love to get the stuff back from my brother and maybe make an outfit for a matching Andy! Pam, if you're reading this, hope you know how much I appreciated this memory surfacing, especially at this time of the year!
