Big News...and a Giveaway to Celebrate!

EDITED: Thank you to all who entered - the giveaway is now closed. I'll pick a winner soon!

Some big news here in Gnomemade world. The BF is no longer the BF! After 7 years, 6 months and 4 days (but hey, who was counting) of dating, he proposed on Friday night! I can't begin to explain how happy and excited I am!!! He did a great job with the proposal and I'm so thrilled to begin this next chapter in our life together!

Well, since I'm so ecstatic, I felt like a giveaway was in order. I'm going to do two items for a giveaway...

Giveaway item #1: A Flutterbys and Flowers pattern designed by Sarah Tuttle. The finished measurements are 58" x 74".

Giveaway item #2: A cute little pack of three blue and yellow themed fat quarters!

So, if you want to win - simply leave a comment! Anything will do. I'll give you an extra entry if you're a follower - so, please let me know that in your comment section as well! I'll pick two winners in a random drawing. This giveaway will close next Sunday (June 28th) at midnight!

Oh, and now that he's no longer the bf, any idea how to refer to him on here? The FI? I don't know...hmm.
