A Giveaway ... Just Because

I made a few things to giveaway here on my blog and they are just because....
  • You leave such nice comments
  • I had 10 people participate in the  Compliments Guaranteed Party (join in if you would like and check out the garments others have linked)
  • I made a super-flop of a top this afternoon and it is not going to get me down (I repeat it is not going to get me down)
  • My oldest is going to have a birthday in 1 week and 2 days
  • The sun is shining and March is almost here (come on spring we need you)
  • The last home varsity basketball game is tonight, Kaitlyn is dressing varsity.  Meredith and I are going to eat Mexican before the game. 
  • I have a pile of fabric and patterns on my cutting table, some nice transition type garments for early spring
  • I saved money at Joann's. I went to get a few McCalls and Vogue patterns today after a doctor's appointment.  I couldn't get to the McCalls patterns, a couple of customers in the pattern drawers and they had big lists, too!  I couldn't stay, had to get back to work.  No patterns, no fabric. 
So here are the giveaways, don't get too excited, little things, easy to mail things

First up a set of four cloth napkins. 

If you would like to make your own cloth napkins head over to Film in the Fridge for a great tutorial (and better pictures)

Next up 2 potholders in the green color family:

then two more potholders in the red/blue color family:

So leave a comment to win a little something, made include your just because in the comment.  I will draw on Monday, all comments through Sunday will be in the drawing.
