Two - count 'em TWO giveaways!

If I can get this post written quick enough - I can be the 350th person to link to a giveaway for the Dog Days of Summer Bloggy Giveaway thought up and hosted by Shannon at Rocks In My Dryer.

My mother is an amazing knitter. She always has projects going and has even been known to knit in the dark. You should see the cute sweaters and hats that she has made for Grom.

I've been trying to get her to market her stuff - I think she could sell a lot more of her stuff than she does. She teaches classes and sells scarves, purses and more here and there. I admire her because she uses the money she makes to support various missionaries. I like that she uses one passion (knitting) to support another passion (Jesus!).

She graciously gave me TWO items to giveaway. The first winner drawn will get first choice. The second winner will get second choice.

I have a felted purse and a felted hat for the contest.

The purse is an apricot color. It has a fun trim. It's felted wool and fully lined.

The hat is tangerine. It's floppy and can be styled to suit you. It's felted wool and is embellished with a handmade felted wool flower.

To be entered in the drawing, leave a single comment (duplicates will be deleted) below. You must provide a valid e-mail address, but you do not have to have a blog. International participants are welcome. I'll close comments at 9:00 p.m. pdt this coming Friday night, July 27, and I'll draw a random winner from the list. I'll announce the winner sometime on Saturday.
