Birthday Giveaway Palooza!

Today happens to be my amazingly super-talented sister Heather's Birthday!!

Now I would never reveal her age, I am way too loyal to her to do that.  I mean, seriously.
However what I will tell you is that she is much older than me.  7 1/2 years to be exact. :)

Malibu CA 2006 (?)

Sometimes I've found myself wanting to curse her for having a birthday in December.  But then I realized it isn't her fault so I took it up with my mom (or should it be my dad?  Ew.  So not going there.)

There are three sisters in our family.  Our oldest sister Amy is uber talented...especially at making babies.  She has 10.  That's why she isn't able to be in all our crafting adventures...but one day!  All three of us girls (and sometimes mommy too) talk on the phone.  All.  Day. Long.  Really.  If you're wondering, we make it happen with a blue tooth.

Daily we discover our new craft callings in life.  Today I was meant to be a machine quilter (I've officially quilted one table runner) and she an embroidery expert :)  I'll let you know about tomorrow.

I don't know how it happens.  But we always get the same crafting bug.  This time last year we were both knitting hats like nobodies business.  We haven't touched knitting needles in months.  A few years before that we were beading bracelets...making aprons...paper scrapbooking...We have problems. 
But one thing we both LOVE and never waiver.  Fabric.  Quilts.

Do you want to help make this Heather's best birthday ever?!!?
Me too.

My part...I'm giving away some of my own stash to one of YOU!!!
Now I would give that entire stack away if it weren't for shipping charges!!

I am giving away about 2 yards from the fabrics above (if you have a fave let me know I'll be sure to include it) to one of our followers.  So if you already're already entered :)

This is a great way to bulk up your stash...for FREE!

So...if you aren't already FOLLOW us!  I've said it before, but our self-esteem is greatly related to our follower #.  Seriously.  We both get really giddy when we have a jump.

But wait...there's more! :)

I am giving away another 2 yards to a FOLLOWer on our blog hop on over :)

Thank you all soooooo much for making our blogs so much fun to do. 
We love and appreciate all of you for your comments, participation, support, creativity, you are all amazing!!

Love you sister.

I'll also be linking up to some of these parties.

Edited to add this giveaway will run for 1 week thru next Thursday December 16th and I will announce the winner Friday December 17th.  Thanks :)

Happy Birthday Heather!! Love to get my hands on those blues! Oh what a love stack it is. It's a great giveaway, but I still can't get past the fact that your sister has 10 kids! I don't know how she even has time to breathe. Amazing.

Happy Birthday Heather! What a great day and awesome way to celebrate a birthday! I LOVE LOVE YOUR blog.... I am in the process of making my very first quilt because your blog is one that has inspired me! Your taste in fabric is incredible and just makes me excited to see what you are going to come up with next! I would love to win some fabric.... starting at the beginning of the year, I am going to make one quilt a month and donate to a local foundation that works directly with children that have chronic illinesses. With that being said, I am IN NEED of CUTE fabric!

Hope you have a great day!
