My First Giveaway(s)

It's hard to believe that an entire year has passed since I started blogging! It has brought such joy to me and I am thankful to the dear friends that encouraged me right from the beginning. I have such a thankful heart to all the friends that I have "met" and all the inspiring blogs that I have found along the way.

July 1st marks my one year anniversary with TDIPT Mercantile! I can't tell you how thrilled I was to be asked to join this talented and caring group of women. I'm not sure that I am in the same calliber, but they have inspired me and helped me to stretch my creative wings - Thank you for letting me be a part of the Mercantile.

To celebrate I created a little group of strawberries from antique fabrics and quilt tops. I've attached them to a mother-of-pearl ring - perfect for hanging. To enter my first give-away please comment on this post - be sure to add your email address so that I am sure to find you :) I know I have several friends out there who are uncomfortable commenting on blogs - so please feel free sending me an email instead to pgagliardi9@hotmail.com just be sure to put Winding Vine Giveaway #1 in the subject field so that I am sure to add your name.

"And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God."

-Colossians 3:14-16


Blessings with a thankful heart, Patti
