Memorial Day Giveaway

I am so excited about this giveaway!  I've been working on my "Liberty Logs" wall hanging and I'm having so much fun!  This is a BIG step for me since I've pretty much only made quilts with squares and rectangles (remember . . . I'm still a beginner . . . don't judge too harshly!) and I'm having a blast!  I'm having so much fun I decided I wanted to give this wall hanging kit to TWO of my Quilty Friends (followers)!!!

I LOVE AMERICA and all the freedoms we are blessed with in this country!  In honor of those freedoms, and the men and women who have helped protect them for us, I thought this wall hanging would be perfect for the upcoming holiday!

I looked up Memorial Day in Wikipedia to see what they had to say about it:

"Memorial Day is a federal holiday observed annually in the United States on the last Monday of May.[1] Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the fallen Union soldiers of the Civil War. (Southern ladies organizations and southern schoolchildren had decorated Confederate graves in Richmond and other cities during the Civil War, but each region had its own date. Most dates were in May.) By the 20th century Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died in all wars. Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.[2]

By the early 20th century, Memorial Day was an occasion for more general expressions of memory, as people visited the graves of their deceased relatives in church cemeteries, whether they had served in the military or not."

So . . . here's what you need to do to be eligible to win one of these wall hangings:

Write a post about this giveaway on your blog and encourage your followers to come here and leave a comment (one comment per person, please).  Encourage often, because the more comments there are that name your blog, the greater your chance of winning is!!!  :o)  In their comment on my blog they need to tell me who's blog they saw the giveaway on and also tell me what their favorite item is in the My Lazy Daisy Catalog.  If your blog is named the most often in the comments for this post I will randomly pick an entry from those comments only and both you AND your follower will receive a "Liberty Logs" wall hanging full kit!  Here's what a sample of what a comment could look like:

     "I saw your giveaway listed on such-and-such blog on such-and-such date and my favorite item in the My Lazy Daisy Catalog is the "Piggy Tales" quilt!"  (And anything else they may want to say!!!)

Simple!  :o)

OK.  Here's the fine print:

1.  You can't name your own blog or my blog for where you saw this giveaway information, so do some blog hopping on your favorite blogs and list one of them that posts about this giveaway!

2.  Please list the date of their post that refers to this giveaway.

3.  Only one entry per person, please.  (You can't list different blogs in different comments.)

4.  You need to be a follower of my blog to win.

That's it!  :o)

I'll leave this giveaway open for two weeks!  On Memorial Day (May 28, 2012) at 10:00 p.m. (MST) I'll choose the two winners!

If you have any questions shoot me an e-mail!  GOOD LUCK!!!



Thanks for taking the time to comment! I sure love reading all of them! They let me know that I'm not out here in blogland all by myself! :o)
