New Blogs and Cool Giveaways - Spreading the Blog Love!

I'm so, (sew) excited to have stumbled upon some great new blogs.  And, I'm sure that will give way to even more great new blogs!  I have lots of different interests including sewing, crafting, and photography.  Well, I recently found some blogs that feature heirloom sewing and ribbon arts.  So much fun!  My blog list is just a wonderful mix of all kinds of talents!  I love sitting down during stolen moments to catch up on all the new posts that hit daily.

Below are a few of the blogs I've recently found.  And, I see quite a few familiar faces of followers among those blogs.  Hey everybody!  It really is a small, small world!  I didn't add pretty pictures from each blog (I would rather have their permission first), but you can pop over real quick with the links and check them out.

Giveaways - they're all over.  Faaaaahbulous giveaways, too!  I'm crossing my fingers - for even just one of them!  I'm the type of person who never wins anything, so if I do - I may faint!  Go check these out if you haven't already!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  Maybe the weather will be pleasant... I hear there is SNOW in our forecast again here in Texas!
