More blogs where you can win THE book!

Check out these two blogs in the next day or two, for more chances to win "Masters: Art Quilts, Vol. 2".

8/19: Cheryl Sleboda:  (sorry, don't know why this URL doesn't appear "live", but just copy-and-paste, and it should take you there.)

8/22: Terri Stegmiller:

Have fun!

And the winner of the Masters: Art Quilts Vol.2 book is ...

Oh, noooo, you're not going to find out in the first line of the post!  First I have to say how surprised and excited I was to get so many wonderful Comments ... some begging and pleading, some intellectual, some pretty hysterical ... this has been so much fun, I'm definitely going to have to do this again.

Well, after much to-ing and fro-ing, frantic hair-pulling, and indecision (OMG, I couldn't make up my mind!  So many great Comments!), I finally chickened out and the final winner has been decided by the Hand of Fate (with the helping hand of my Faithful Little Nugget, FiFi the Wonder Assistant).  We very scientifically put slips of paper with the numbers of each Commenter into a hat (well, actually it was the cat's food dish, but don't worry, it was relatively clean), and FiFi then drew the winning number.

Which was ... #2 YARNGODDESS!  Please send me your name and address privately, Yarngoddess, and I will see that you receive your book directly from Sterling Publishing.

And now ... MORE GREAT NEWS, which was even a surprise to me.  Sterling actually sent me MORE copies of the book to give away, so FiFi very kindly consented to draw again.. #16 KEVIN B and #43 GAIL MYR, step right up and claim your prizes!  I will mail these books to you myself, so please email me with your mailing information.

(If I don't hear from you within 3 days, I just assume you've already gone out and bought your own copy, and I'll then have to pick another name!)

Well, this was too much fun.  Thank you all for joining in the excitement ... if you didn't win this time, maybe next time!  Stay tuned ...

I feel so lucky to have received this gorgeous book for review from Sterling Publishing (via Lark Crafts), and want to share the wealth.  Please see my review in my previous post of August 2, and if you would like to receive a copy, just leave me a scintillating, exciting, amusing, pathetic, intellectual, or downright begging  Comment, and maybe you will get lucky!

The Giveaway will be held at the end of the day, Wednesday, August 18.  Please be sure that your Comment is not "Anonymous", so that I can reach you to let you know that you won, or else be sure to check back here on August 19.  I will be traveling on the 19-20th, but will be checking the blog and emails.  If you win, your copy will be shipped to you directly from Sterling Publishing.  Good luck!  I can promise that you will LOVE this book!
