Goals for April & Book Giveaway

My First Goal for April is to have Fun!
April is my Birthday Month so it's my favorite.

I bet you would rather hear about the Giveaway first - Right?

Jennifer Chiaverini's book The Giving Quilt is now in paperback
and to celebrate she is sponsoring this giveaway..

I have two books to giveaway and some pins - I think it would be nice if one of these books went to one of my followers. You know the drill - just leave a comment.
 (If you would like to be a  follower - it's easy with the Bloglovin Button.)

In "The Giving Quilt" the characters come together for a week of quilting for charity, Project Linus. I like the way Chiaverini has the characters interact and develop; finding solutions to their problems. I do find the book very entertaining and I highly recommend this book.  It is a lovely "sit by the fire and enjoy reading" type of book. I did a review here.

Now on to April Goals. 

Goal #1. Sew the Second Border on to my Civil War Quilt.
Goal # 2. Turn these bit of pieces of fabric into Terrier Town BOM #3

Goal #3. Turn these fabrics in Sulky Threads' BOM #3

Goal #4. Chose and sew up a 6 inch block for Angela's Quilt.

New Projects I May Start:  ( because what's life without new projects? )
 A quilt for my soon to be grad - Serena
Texas Teardrop Quilt-along

  3. Hi, Linda. I'd like to know more about Terrier Town, please? Are they blocks with terriers (as in dogs) in them? Thanks! And Happy Birthday month!

  4. Woohoo - happy birthday month Linda. What a nice way to celebrate :-) Your to-do list seems achievable; great idea to set goals - and put them into print for some sort of accountability!! Your 'possible start' sounds interesting...:-)

  5. Happy birthday from a happy follower. :-) I love to read, but haven't found this one available at the library yet.
    Your goals sound very do-able! Have fun!

  6. How funny, it's my birthday month too! So we share the same name and the same month. I would love to win this book as I haven't read any of her books yet. Hugs Linda x

  7. Happy Birthday! April's a good month - my daughter's birthday is the 22nd. o:) Thanks so much for the chance to win - I love Jennifer's books. I follow with Google and Bloglovin!

  8. Every time I leave a comment on your blog, I get halfway through and the box "regenerates" and clears all my words. Argh! Anyway, looks like you have some good project goals for the month. I am considering Texas Teardrop (love it), but I have started so many new things, I think I shouldn't..... Happy birthday to you. My brother's birthday is this month, too.

  9. April birthdays are very special ones. My daughter and grandmother were born in April.
    I love Jennifer's books and would love to win this one too.
