Since I didn't win...I guess I'll let you

Guess What? 
I didn't win the sewing machine. 
None of us crossed our hands or toes enough.
Oh, well. 
That Horizon is still somewhere over the horizon...


Remember when I said that for today's giveaway that I would
see how many books or patterns that I could fit into a flat rate envelope?
I had enough to fill 4 flat rate envelopes!
Here was the original pile....

I would have loved to just give them all away to you;
but I could not have paid the shipping.
So, I picked out the BEST of the bunch
--that would still fit in a (very stuffed) flat rate envelope. 

For this giveaway today we have

(sorry; all I could find was a thumbnail for this;
and I'm too lazy to set up for photos right now)

(A couple have been opened though.)

What must you do?
Just leave a comment;
be a follower;
 and make sure your blogger is not set to no reply.
Those that were eligible for extra chances have been noted
via my very high tech system of pen and paper.

I know I was going to originally only leave this up a day;
but it's got too many goodies for that. 
I'll probably throw in extra chances for comments this week too.
I'll post the winner next Saturday.
Good luck to each of you!

Oh, look at all those yo-yo patterns. They are so coming back again. The applique by machine books very interesting. Is the 202 log block book a Carol DOak? What a wonderful collection for any one - THANK YOU.

Hi Tonya, I acttually like doing yoyo coverlets. I started doing them when Ii rode with my husband while he was a long-haul driver. (second husband after children were raised.) Also have an interest in lof cabin patterns. I am bidding on the underground railroad because while growing up in vermont, in a county bordering Canada, I explored underground railroad hiding places in two old homes in our town. This history has always fascinated me. Actually I was born in St. albans Vermont the northern most "battle" not really a battle robbers for the confederacy came south from Canada by train and robbed the banks. Set the local economy back a bit. Now I live in the south and realize that much has still to change. Good talking to you. Jill
