Great Giveaway

My dear friend Gerry K (Olderrose) is having a giveaway on her blog.   This is one giveaway that you do NOT want to miss!  Gerry is going to have a drawing on August 31 in which two lucky commenters on her blog will win one of two gorgeous prizes.

The first gift is one of her amazing Victorian Pincushions (her own unique design).    I own one of these beauties, and let me tell you, they are as opulent and well-crafted as they look.  Of course, it’s extra special because it is made by Gerry herself.

The other gift is a set of three hand-painted (by Gerry) antique mother-of-pearl buttons.  Each features a charming bluebird in a different pose.  Gerry’s buttons are meticulously prepared, painted and finished, and the results are luminescent and a cut above (far above) much of what is offered in the marketplace today.

If you haven’t visited Gerry’s blog before, you are in for a special treat.  She is a modern Renaissance woman who sews, paints and draws, embroiders and crazy quilts, creates, cooks, ran a nursery, grew a forest, builds furniture, raises sheep and makes cheese, and drives a tractor.   All while taking care of her DH and loving furkids.  She could probably rotate the tires of that tractor with one hand tied behind her back, too.   The ONLY thing in her life that I can say she seriously needs to improve is Bike Riding in Dark Tunnels.  

Visit her blog here and read back a bit to understand that one!!

I’ll be back in a day or two with posts of the Art Nouveau crazy quilt block I’m working on for Leslie.
