Once Upon A Summer Give-A-Way



Have you ever heard about "those people" who  buy something.....like a quilt book......and when they get home they discover they already have that book?
Well.....if I was ever one of "those people".....I would want to share one of my copies with a friend.


Hello Friend!
It is feeling like summer here in Minnesota.



Once Upon A Summer by Heather Mulder Peterson has 12 fun patterns that were inspired by her honeymoon trip to California.

Heather is a designer from Minnesota.  Anka's Treasures was named after her Grandmother.  You can visit her at http://www.anka'streasures.com/


I am planning on making this penny rug one of these days.
If you would like to be entered in the drawing, just leave a comment.  If you share this Summer Give-A-Way on your blog, I will enter your name twice.   
I will draw a random winner on June 1.....when I get home from my dentist appointment.

You are not alone! I have done it a couple of times.. buying duplicates. I get home and think... o my gosh!! Duh! And then I share them :o) I actually have this book, so please don't include me, but I just wanted to share with ya.

I am forever buying patterns/books that I already have. Honestly we must really love them that's why we buy in duplicate. lol
Good luck at the dentist. That is one place I do not like going.

I would like to have this book. I usually don't buy the book because I am afraid I already have it. But I don't have this one!

Ms Quilt Hollow told me about this. It looks fabulous and I'd LOVE to win it, if I'm eligible as I live in the UK?
Oh, and yes, I have been there, done that and even got the t-shirt (2 t-shirts actually)!

Yes...I have heard of those people and used to BE one of those people. Now I keep an alphabetized list on my computer of all my quilting books AND patterns and keep a printed copy in my purse. No more duplicate-buying for me!!! (People laugh but then they realize it is a GOOD idea to do what I'm doing!!!) Mary from Quilt Hollow told me about your blog. Please enter my name as this is a book I do NOT have yet!

I would love a chance to win this book, it looks wonderful. Plus since the author made the projects because of her trip to California, It would be perfect because I LIVE in California.

I just adore Heather. I follow her blog and love her fabrics as well as her books and patterns.

Not only have I bought "double" books, I've also bought double patterns and just when I thought I had a certain charm pack - I didn't...LOL

My brain just isn't what it used to be.

I can also relate to buying two of something- I chalk it up to being busy and wanting to be sure that I have that particular book- Someone is going to be real happy when you draw their name to win this lovely book.
Thanks for hosting such a nice giveaway.

Hi Sheila. I found your giveaway on Sharlotte's blog. I'd love a chance to win. I love the pic of your grandson on the tractor. I have a 2 1/2 yo grandson and tractor was one of his first words. He loves riding on the tractor with his paw-paw. I have a daughter that just turned 14. I am not ready for the driving thing either!!! lol

Cute book. Think there must be a club of us who have purchased the same book (or item) twice. mlwright29 (at) hotmail (dot) com

arlette said...

kerrykatiecakeskeb43 said...

LOL! I can't tell you how many times I have done this - I am blaming it on memory lapses due to aging. Maybe though we should both consider it a sign of continued good taste?
Hugs,
