A Guessing Game Giveaway!

Here we go!  

It's been a while since I've had a giveaway.  Remember back in the spring, Brandie Lynn Maslowski did an interview with me on Quilt Talk Radio?  I was all about Fibre Art Postcards.  She later organized a Canada Day swap with a Maple Leaf theme.  Since then, Brandy Lynn caught the bug big time and has organized more postcard swaps via her site!  : )  At the end of the summer, we submitted information to Quilter's Connection magazine.  Hers was an article about hosting a swap and the love of postcards.  Mine was project instructions for making and sending postcards.

It's here!  Hot off the press.

This entire Canadian quilting magazine issue is devoted to art / artfulness.  Here is a peek at Brandy Lynn's.  5 pages and lots of samples!


I was really surprised to see 5 more beautiful pages they printed for me as well!  Being in between studios, time was tight and resources were scarce.  I could not provide samples of my own.  So I asked the makers of a handful of my favourite postcards if I could send those in to be photographed. I have received these through online swaps.

I'm so glad I did!  So, congratulations (and thank you!!) to Sheila Munro in NS (5 images), Vicky Baker in AB (1 image), Cheryl Coville in ON (1 image), Judy McCrosky in SK (3 images), and Mary Anne Kingston in ON (2 images) for contributing to have your wonderful postcards make it into the pages of the magazine.  And it looks like all your names are in there too, spelled right.

Quilter's Connection Magazine - Winter 2014/2015   Pages 18-22

To celebrate - a give away!!  I have 2 prizes each of a 1 year DIGITAL subscription to this magazine, courtesy of Quilter's Connection.  I know not everyone prefers the digital version, but if you are like me, you have piles of magazines and still manage to spend most of your time on the computer. ; )  It's not so bad, and it's free!  All you need to do is say hello in the comments and give me a number.  The two closest guesses to how many postcards I have received from around the world will win the subscriptions.  ONE GUESS per entry.  Enter as often as you want.  (HAHA this should be fun!!)

You have until the end of this week to guess.  I'll announce the winner on Saturday, December 6th, 2014.  Good luck!  I guess I had better get counting...
