Milestones!! A{nother} Giveaway

I know that I just finished a giveaway yesterday, and I really had something else planned for today, but when I logged on this morning and found that this will be my 300th post I just couldn't resist.  That seems like reason enough to celebrate, but I've been promising a 200th follower giveaway for awhile now, and reached that lucky milestone last week!

So here it is.  Another luscious bundle of DS Quilts fat quarters - 2 full yards - for a lucky reader.



 You have a maximum of three chances to win:

1.  Just leave a comment telling me what you like best about fall.  (Personally, I'm really looking forward to cooler temps and less rain - but no hurricanes!)  Please make sure I have a way to contact you!

2.  If you are a follower of my blog, you get another entry, so leave a comment to let me know.  If you become a new follower, that counts too - just be sure to leave a comment.

3.  Leave me a comment my Facebook page.  You can even "Like" me if you haven't already.   I'd love it.  Facebook "page" is kind of a new medium for me, and I'm trying to figure out how it works, and the comments there last time were very helpful.  I'll count the FB entries at the end of the blog entries.



Please, please, please, make sure I can contact you!  If you are a no-reply blogger, I will immediately choose someone else. The winner of the last giveaway was a no-reply blogger, and I find that a little frustrating.  The waiting is killing me.



That's it.  Comments will close on Wednesday, August 15, and I'll draw a winner on Thursday, August 16.

The giveaway is now closed.

  59. I enjoy the cooler weather and since I teach, I really enjoy getting back into the routine of school. I am taking some college classes so I can honestly say I am not really looking forward to that- just because I am nervous. I also love having my windows open and getting to breathe the fresh air.

  136. What I love about fall is that the weather finally gets warm here in the SF Bay Area. Our summer weather is usually foggy and cool, but come September we actually may hit 80 degrees.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Happy 300-th post!! My favorite thing about fall is our annual vacation. When we were a homeschooling family many years ago, we always took some time away in the fall rather than the hot summer. So cooler weather, fall leaves, the crisp smell in the air all remind me of family times away, and I love it. I'd love to be included in your giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  138. I like fall most because the humidity goes way down. When it is hot and humid, I hide out in the house, work, car, stores. But I love to be outside!

  140. I love the fall leaves on the ground. When it first starts to frost and you walk through them and then rustle. And when they fall out of the trees like a gentle rain. Especially when you are camping with friends for a last ditch effort to keep the camping season alive.
