Mom said so....

These wayward girls of mine have created this blog and now want me to join in the fun. I thought that somehow a post would magically appear, but apparently not. After I got a rather pointed text from the eldest daughter, I realized I had to do something. So.... to introduce myself, I am the lucky mom of four beautiful and talented daughters. I work as an academic coach in a middle school. My crafting goes in spurts. Lately I have spent my time creating a quiet book for my wonderful grandchildren and sewing a quilt for my grandchild due in a few months. I will be sharing both of those in coming posts. I am never quite satisfied with what I create, but I still keep trying! I will probably be the first one to point out what is wrong with whatever I do! (Maybe I should stop that!)

Anyway, in the giveaway spirit of our debut week, I have a lovely group of ten five-inch charm squares of vintage fabrics. My great grandmother was a seamstress in the early 30's and 40's. When my grandmother passed away 10 years ago, we found a bag of my great grandma's scraps way in the back of a closet. I don't know the exact age of the fabrics or fabric contents, but they each have a beauty of their own.

So make a comment on the blog or do any of that Tweeting or Facebook Liking or whatever it is that the girls have listed below if you want to win these charm squares. Since I don't Tweet or Facebook I really don't have a clue what those mean. 

You get:
  • One entry for commenting on this blog post.
  • One entry for becoming a follower of our blog, and commenting on this blog post to tell me about it.
  • One entry for following us on Twitter, and commenting on this blog post to tell me about it. (even if you started following us yesterday, you can comment today for an entry)

  • One entry for blogging about our new blog, and commenting on this blog post to tell me about it (with a link to your post!).
  • One entry for asking us a question about ourselves, new blog, crazy dreams, whatever.
Just so we're clear: each of these should be in their own comments! So if you like us on FB, comment, Follow us on Twitter, you should make 3 separate comments.

The winner will be announced one week from today, and welcome to Wayward Crafts!

Beautiful fabrics.

I'm with you--What is a tweet?? In my way of thinking it has something to do with a little yellow bird.

Good luck with the blog
