Time for that Lace Giveaway

It's time now to get crackin' on the lace giveaway I promised. Yesterday I made up two identical lace groupings for this giveaway. The deal was that since The Lace Fairy has blessed me with so much good fortune of late, I must "pay it forward" to show her I'm worthy of it. LOL.
So, this is how it will work. Today is Sunday, August 2. Leave a comment on THIS POST and you will be entered into the drawing. One post per person (well, you can post a dozen times if you want, but you'll only be entered once, ok?) and ONLY on this post. Let's have it run until, say, Friday the 7th (midnight, MDT). I'll draw the names sometime on Saturday and announce them then.

By the way, make sure you include your email address in your comment so I can contact you. Every time I have a drawing, there are several ladies that are disqualified because they've not given me any contact information. Yes, I will make a general announcement of who the winner is, but I will not rely on that to contact the winners. :-) Thanks.

Finally for today, my studio is a mess. The contractor has just finished replacing the wall that was damaged in our flood in August, then again in February. Here's what one small corner looks like.

But, we've gotten rid of the treadmill (the one I used for a clothes hanger and nothing else) (well.... I DO attend Curves, ya know!) and now we'll be rearranging everything to give me more room. I'll be blogging about that, too, I'm sure.

Meantime, I'd love for you to win some lace!
Cathy

Looks like I am the first "entrant"!
I love your blog BTW.
Funny you say that about winners in the past and not having contact info.
I never remember to go check the few I have tried my luck at!

Hi Cathy,
Good luck on your reorganization! That's what I've been doing all weekend. Hope the contractor has solved your water problems. I know only too well what chaos it causes.

a girl can never have too much lace, so I'm here. you've got my email. I know coz you've sent me lots of much appreciated messages and heads ups. I gave up on my worktable. its all piled up with books and goodies. I sit on my sofa, surrounded by my threads, laces, books and ribbons. it starts out neat looking but I have 2 cats that always create avalanches and then look at me like: I don't understand, why can't I walk/lay/jump here?

Hi Cathy! OMG!! I am new to CQI and am in the lurking around stage to figure things out. Came across you blog address and low and behold...when I read it I remembered you from the retreat! I was only able to come for Saturday (but next year I am in for the whole thing and probably will vend also!). Anyway, I am in the same guild with Tami Schmidt and I remember her telling me you were friends. So, now, here I am, LOVING your blog and okay, I admit, hoping I get picked for your fantastic lace giveaway! Looking forward to actually meeting you next year in Omaha.

Hi Cathy,
Please include me in your lace giveaway. I always share my laces with my dear friend Pam K., who is not well at the moment, and I'm sure this little lot would cheer her up somewhat! Fingers crossed.
