Sweetening the give away pot

I am learning more "bout" this blogging thing at every turn. I've learned that a "give away" can generate a list of folks that will click on and take a look at your blog. I have also learned that it's fun to check out the blogs belonging to folks that have checked out yours. And of course it's fun to read the comments. And from several sources, I 've come to understand that there is a certain goal to get as many folks as possible to view your blog and leave a comment.

So! at this point I am "SWEETENING THE GIVE AWAY POT". Everyone who visits this blog, and leaves a comment, from this point on will be ENTERED INTO ANOTHER DRAWING as well as the drawing for the framed quilt square.

This additional give away will be a handcarved Santa Christmas tree ornament, similar to the one in the photo. This give away will close on Monday, October 13th the same as the framed quilt square.

Ok, I can't resist the Santa, you have suckered me into commenting! Though, to be fair, you should come over to my blog and comment too!!!!! I don't have a giveaway at this time but I might one of these days. I am starting to get a bit of a pile of quilts of various sizes.

also, changing your comment section to allow comments from other blog places might help get more comments. I know that other blogger blogs have a name and url option so that commenters don't feel like they are "spamming" your blog by putting their url in their comment.

Your carvings are really good. I hope you are selling some. Do you have an etsy shop? If not you should.

Adrienne said...

Wow, you are so talented to be a quilter and a wood carver. I love quilting and think wood carvings are so beautiful, but I am too afraid of cutting of a digit to even try carving.

Wowzer's, just love the quilt you made for your wife. Lucky girl!

Wood and fabric just seem so different, but it all comes from the heart so I guess it isn't different at all.

I have to add you to my blog..nice to have a man around the blog!
