Crochet Flower give-away

06 Sep 2010

We will post our crochet flower give-away winners here on Thursday.   I just learned about the many rules facebook has put in place for give-aways/contests (Yes there are many!)  So instead of running the chance of having our facebook page deleted, we moved our contest to our blog.  I wrote down the names of all who posted comments on fb for the give-away and I will enter those names plus anymore who post comments here in the drawing.  We love hearing from all of you! Thanks for your understanding.
