Basket of Blessings- Magazine Giveaway


I got an extra magazine sent to me so I thought I'd do a giveaway. Here's my spread. The directions look so long, but it isn't complicated at all, it just has lots of different colors and prints in it.



I made this quilt before so many deaths in 2014 but I still feel blessed. 
My blessings are not based on my circumstances.  Leave a comment telling me about a blessing in your life and you'll be entered to win. I'll draw a name after my trip on February 2nd. (February 1st we are having a Superbowl party at our house)
Good Luck!

I'll be posting from Bonnie's Buck Mtn Cabin on Instagram if you want to keep up with me!

Comments are closed for this giveaway. Thank you to all those who entered!

  45. Blessings! What a great topic. I just lost my Mom two days before Thanksgiving. She is my blessing. Because she has been fighting her disease for the past four years I was blessed to spend the summers with her at her summer home in Maine. What memories we made and fun we had. Thank you for reminding me of what a blessing she was for me.

  46. Isn't it wonderful to appreciate the great things we have in life? So many take those things for granted.
    I consider my greatest blessing to be my husband of 31 years. I prayed for him so many years ago and God put him directly in my path. We are best friends and love life together!

  54. I had a lot of health issues in 2014 that I hope are behind me for good, and they certainly cut down on my sewing time and enjoyment! Have fun with Bonnie, that to me is a true vacation to be able to eat, sew, walk, and just enjoy being together with friends.

  64. My husband is almost a five year survivor of an aortic dissection with an accompanying stroke. Even his doctor did not think he would survive the first week and considers him a "walking miracle." In fact, he is walking again with a cane and an AFO. It has been a very long road back. Life takes very sudden turns. Enjoy today with your loved ones! And count even your smallest blessings.

  70. I've had many blessings over the years - family and friends, etc. One of the best has been quilting and the fellowship it brings that helps me through all the ups and downs of life. And meeting YOU in person last September at the Portland quilt show was fantastic! Thanks for the opportunity to win! (If I'm the winner, please autograph the article in the magazine!) Love the quilt and have been wanting to try something along those lines.

  72. I have many blessings. I have my wonderful husband who supports me in what ever I want to do. I started quilting a year ago. My first quilt is a Dear Jane. We travel a lot and he helps find quilt shops for me when we are away. He is very silly and board when we are in a quilt shop. He tells the ladies in the shop all his knowledge about quilting. It all comes out wrong but he charmes them!

  73. I'm blessed with Faith, family, friends, and fabric!
