Congratulations to Gwen, comment #15.   The random number generator picked #15 from last week's comments.  I tried to figure out how to post the random number generator box but was unsuccessful.  I'll have to work on that.  Gwen wins the 3 charm packs.  Gwen please email me with your address so I can send them to you.

This week's FREEBIE FRIDAY giveaway is a pattern that I designed.  It's called God Bless Texas.  Now, I know you have to be a Texan to appreciate this but if you're the lucky winner, maybe you're a true Texan or maybe you know someone who is that would appreciate it.

I designed this pattern for my husband, who is a true Texan.  He was born in Canyon Texas but moved to Missouri with his family when he as 1 1/2 years old.  He was raised in Missouri but the old saying "once a Texan, always a Texan" holds true for him.  He has always put Texas on a pedestal and is a die hard UT (University of Texas) fan.  He was so happy to move back to Texas 7 years ago. There are 3 sizes in the pattern; wall hanging, lap, and queen.

Leave me a comment and tell me if you're a true Texan.  I'll draw a winner next Thursday evening and announce the winner on next week's FREEBIE FRIDAY. 


  1. Ms. doris. I am a true texan by my move from somewhere very cold. This is a beaut. Hope you get lots of responses.

  2. A True Texas by birth. Spent my first 13 years in Texas then my family moved to Kansas City. After I got out of the service my husband and I ended backup in Texas for another 7 years before moving back to be closer to my mom. We are torn between staying here (now for 14 years) or going back to Texas. I suspect we'll end up in Texas again before it's all over.

  3. I was not born in Texas but my Dad was stationed in Texas while serving in the Air Force. When he retired he wanted to move back to Texas and I have been here ever since. I am proud to be a Texan!

  4. Texas, Our glad that people who weren't born here, get here as soon as they can! Texas is so big and diverse that you can find almost any kind of weather, landscape, and interest that anyone could possibly want!
    Born and raised in TEXAS and love it!

  5. I was born in Texas but since my dad was in the Air Force, I didn't get to live there long. I have always been proud to be born a Texan and while I will probably never get to live there again, it remains a big part of me. I live in Arkansas now and have a lot of family in D/FW area and get down there often.

  6. I was born in South Dakota, but got here as soon as I could at age 13, some uh um 42 years ago......Yikes that's been a long time.

  7. Any proud Texan would love this quilt in their home. Also, would look great in the town Library. I was born here 68 years ago and happy to live on this TEXAS soil.


Your comments make my day. I love to hear what you have to say. Please leave me a comment.
