Wildfire Containment Celebration Giveaway

I declare, it's time for a celebration!  And what better way to celebrate than with a giveaway!

If you read my last blog post, Wildfire Postpones Quilting, you'll be glad to know that yesterday all the evacuation notices were lifted for our valley. Such great news! The fire is 70% contained, and many of the fire crews are returning home because they've been on the scene here for two weeks now.



The crews did such a fantastic job - it's a huge coordinated effort that saved four towns from possible destruction. If this had been a hundred years ago, this fire would have consumed our valley. But only one home and less than a dozen out buildings were lost!

So, my friends, I'm partying with the Sunday Funday  Giveaway hosted by Julie at 627 Handworks.


Sunday Funday Giveaway Party

 
For my giveaway, I'm parting with this great Moda charm pack called Nature's Basket by Blackbird Designs.  If you like blues, you'll love this charm pack!




Entering is easy!
1.  Leave a comment telling me what you are celebrating this week.
2.  For a second entry, leave a comment telling me how you follow Mountain Quiltworks.

The giveaway will remain open until midnight mountain time on Friday Aug. 30. I'll randomly select a winner next weekend! Giveaway is open only to US locations.  Good luck, and thanks for following along.

Remember to quilt with a smile,
Barb

  46. I am really glad to hear about the containment. I've been keeping up with that FB page you sent me.
    This week we are celebrating our oldest grandson's birthday. He flew in on Tuesday, his birthday, from his job. He works 28 days on and 28 days off on a rig that is being moved to the gulf from S. Korea. He just sailed across the Indian Ocean, and when he goes back, he will be sailing across the Atlantic.
    He has been completely around the world in 30 days either flying or sailing - still quite an accomplishment!
