Sew Mama Sew Giveaway

Love these giveaways! To earn a chance at this basket simply leave a comment on this blog entry. I’ll hold the drawing on Sunday, Dec. 7.

This basket is made using the basket pattern from Pink Penguin and the 13-Square foundation from Miniatures in Minutes. You can find a pdf file on how to adapt the foundation to this basket and a link to Pink Penguin’s blog site and directions on how to make the basket on the projects page of my website.

To find a listing of all the wonderful giveaways, click on the giveway icon:

Here’s a photo of the December project in process. It will be finished up and posted this weekend:

For those who were following, my ending NaNoWriMo word count: 58, 574

nano_09_winner_100x100

Well, I wanted to redeem myself for not finishing when I attempted last year, so right now I’m feeling pretty good about myself! The novel is still in progress. Perhaps I’ll finish up a full draft by the end of December . . .
