It's a GIVEAWAY... as promised!
WHY? Because you are all so darn sweet!!
I looked in my gift drawer and this jumped into my hand... the left one.
It's a Mary Engelbreit chair that is actually a pincushion. The little pillow lifts off.
It would also be cute just perched on a shelf or holding a little doll.
It's 5 1/2" tall and 5 1/2" wide.
If you'd like to be in the drawing... just leave a comment.
Tell me what you're reading or plan to read.
Fiction or non-fiction.
Can't you visualize yourself curled up in this chair with a book?
Curled under one of your beautiful quilts you made.
Wearing a pair of hand knit wool socks.
Sipping a cup of tea or coffee.
GO FOR IT!!!
Hugs to you all.
Joni
Mr Yummers will pick a name from a hat on Wednesday evening.

Oh me me me me ME! Please can it be me because I'm first????? That chair is adorable! So, what am I reading at the moment? Nothing (apart from the weekend section of the paper!) but I am about to start reading a Maeve Bincy - Whitethorn Woods and I also want to read my Elm Creek Quilts book - The Quilters Homecoming, but at the same time I want to read my new vegetable gardening book and I haven't had time to read The Art of Domesticity yet or my new Janet Bolton book - aaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh too busy knitting at the moment - determined that Fred will have two mittens for school tomorrow!

Enough info there? Hee hee!

Hey girl!

I'm reading "Bringing Up Boys" by James Dobson. Right now, it's NECESSITY reading.

Other than that, I'm reading "Blue Like Jazz" by Donald Miller.

This is cute -- but I'd be just as glad if someone else wins. I just wanted you to know that I *AM* reading! : )


. . . something about simplifying ones' life, and having time to read.

Cute!!!
I'm reading "Eat, Pray, Love" by Elizabeth Gilbert and loving it.
I'm also working my way through the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency books by Alexander McCall Smith. Since I have roots in Africa I love these.

WooHoo, we love pincushions!!! I think I even have a pattern somewhere for a chair pincushion sort of like that one! I just started World Without End by Ken Follett. Read his Pillars of the Earth several years ago and LOVED it, so I'm looking forward to this book. Also read The Book Thief last year -- I liked it better than his I Am the Messenger which we just read this fall.

That pincushion chair is so cute and very useful, I can tell because I've an identical one on my shelf! So don't count me in for the drawing, I'm sure you gonna make someone else very happy with it! I'm not reading anything special at the moment. I love to leaf throug magazines and read the morning paper each day. How is your hand doing? I hope its goes better.

How darn cute!!! Love Mary E. What am I reading? Well, not counting craft books and quilt mags (those are constants), I started The Reincarnationist before Christmas and had to put it aside due to all the holiday hoopla. My desire is to get back into it---soon!!!

Pat said...
