A Bit Late and a Bit Early

April has almost come and gone...where does the time go?  I had planned on celebrating an anniversary in April.  I have now been on the huge learning curve of Etsy for two years.  April 6th was my two year mark.  I think I have learned allot.
Then I noticed that I have been on blogger for two years come the end of June.  Well, thought I, lets combined the two and have a giveaway.
So my good blog friend Vicky said it was OK for me to use her idea and celebrate by listing a few things and having you pick a favorite.  These are some of my favorites!!
1) A set of Raggedy's.  The frame size on these are 10 x 11 and you would receive both.  This is a Susan Jill Hall pattern. 
2)  My try at sewing a bias around this fun bunny.  This hangs 23 inches not counting the ribbon and is 10 inches wide.  This is a Susan Jill Hall pattern.  Love the belly on this bunny!
3)  Love this basket full of posies.  The frame measures 12 x 12 and the flowers are painted on a wider weave of black screening.  Love this effect.  This is a Cheri Saffiote pattern.
4)  Hoppy Spring bunny face!  This frame measures 10 x 6 and is a Shara Reiner pattern.  I love the color purple! 
5)   My fun little bunny in a primitive frame.  This frame measures 14 x 8 1/2 and is a Frank Bielec design.
I really like the simplicity of this design!
6)    Love this Angel.  It is a Shara Reiner pattern and the frame measures 10 x 9.  What more could you want in angel, some flowers, some cherries and a heart!

Here are the rules;
Be a follower of my blog and  new followers always welcome.
Would love for you to post to your side bar if you have a blog.

  19. Happiest of Anniversaries (x2) Barb!! Well, here I am.....I told you I wasn't going to enter your giveaway, as I have been so sporadic in my visits of late - but you told me I should, and I certainly wouldn't want you cross (er?) with me. ;o) You know I think you have a made painting talent, and each is a wonderful work of art - but I'd have to say my favorite is the little basket of posies. (Bet you could have guessed that....) I've posted on my sidebar and I think I follow you on FB (is that the same as "liking"? If not, let me know - I'm FB stupid). Alas I don't do twitter or pinterest..... Happy new week ahead! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  20. Congratulations Barb on your double anniversary! I would love to be entered into your giveaway and while it was a very hard decision I think that I would love to have your angel painting because you can never have too many angels in your life! I am a follower of your blog, I posted a link to your giveaway on my sidebar, I already 'like' your Facebook page, I already follow you on Twitter and I already follow your boards on Pinterest :O) Thanks so much for the opportunity, Deb

  21. I would love to wing any of them, they are all very nice. If I did have to choose one, it would be the basket of posies...beautiful!

  22. I love them all, but I think my favorite has to be Annie and Andy! Please enter me before it is toooo late! Thanks so much.

    Bear Hugs & Blessings~Karen

  23. I love number 2 and number 3. Either would look amazing in my house. I'm making a spot for it as I type. LOL!!!!
