Happy St. Patrick's Day! Today is your lucky day - I have a wonderful give-away I am announcing to one lucky winner! But before I announce what it is, I have a little history for you on the four-leaf clover.
The four-leaf clover is an uncommon variation of the common, three-leaved clover. According to tradition, such leaves bring good luck to their finders, especially if found accidentally. According to legend, each leaflet represents something: the first is for hope, the second is for faith, the third is for love, and the fourth is for luck. In Irish tradition the "Shamrock" or 3-leaf Clover was also what Saint Patrick used to represent the Holy Trinity: one leaf for the Father, one for the Son and one for the Holy Spirit. When a Shamrock is found with the fourth leaf, it represents God's Grace. Isn't that neat?
I first want to thank all of you who are followers of my blog. I have met some wonderful people with some blogs that truly amaze & inspire me! I am honored to have at this very moment 105 followers! As a BIG thank you, I am offering a giveaway that just had to include a "clover" since today is St. Patrick's Day!
Included in this giveaway package, which by the way is a $60 value, is 1 and 1/2 yards of Spechler-Vogel Imperial Batiste, a large spool of Mettler 60wt thread and a wonderful book, called:
I happened to have two of these books, so I am giving one of them away to a lucky winner! Even if you are not a quilter, this book is valuable in that it teaches how to do many heirloom techniques that you can use in making garments or home dec projects. It gives detailed instructions on lace shaping, puffing, lace insertion and many other heirloom sewing techniques.
Also included in this giveaway is three yards of embroidered eyelet insertion and two yards of lace insertion. This will help you get started on some of the projects included in the book!
For a little added luck, I've added a "clover" to the give-away. The Clover Finger Presser is a valuable tool in many sewing projects. How many times have you used your fingers to quick press something? This tool makes it much easier! When working on an heirloom project, you also want to make sure your iron is clean and Dritz Iron-off will do the job for you - you sure don't want any gunky brown spots on your beautiful white fabric & laces!
