A birthday giveaway!

My birthday is on Sunday and I will be 39 years old.  I want to give one of ya'll a birthday gift from me!  How about a quilt pattern?

This is Celebration by Jane Spolar.  She has some free downloads for placemats and napkins here.
Since birthdays are usually a celebration, I thought it would fit pretty well!

All you need to do to enter is leave a comment telling me how you follow my blog and what kind of quilts you like to make.  I am an old fashioned kind of girl and love the old patterns.  For example the Dresden Plates, Grandma's Flower Garden, Martha Washington's Flower Garden and Wedding Rings, etc.
If you share about this giveaway you will get a second entry.  Just leave me a second comment telling me how you shared.  Be sure to leave me your email address if you are not sure whether you are a no-reply blogger, if you are signing in as anonymous especially!
Did you see my new background?  That is the quilt my Nanny made!  My husband showed me how to crop the photo and make it smaller.  So I followed his directions and then uploaded it under templates in Blogger.  It was so easy once he showed me what to do!  I am so excited!
I also want to share with you a birthday cake I would love to get for my birthday.  I never get a birthday cake, I'm always the one making them!  LOL My favorite kind of cakes are carrot cake, spice cake, orange cake, lemon cake, etc. I love anything with nuts and really want to try the pecan pie cake or the butter pecan cake.  Those recipes are here.

These are just a few of the awesome cakes I've seen!  Well, I said I never get cake, one time my husband did try to make me a birthday cake.  He wanted to make me a checkerboard cake, where the inside of the cake is checkerboarded with two different flavors.  He did peanut butter and chocolate (my favorite combination of flavors!) and he bought the pans and the cake mixes and made my cake with 7 cake mixes for just the two of us.  That was a lot of cake and a very special cake.  I have such a sweet husband!  If I could throw myself my own party, I would do a masquerade ball, but without the dancing.  Can't you just see it?  A fancy ball gown with a fancy mask?  That would be so much fun.  Maybe for my 40th!  LOL
Okay, that's enough of that!  Don't forget to enter my giveaway, I will draw the name on Saturday sometime.  My husband and I have a date that day, so I don't know what time I will draw.  I'll announce the winner sometime on Sunday, probably after church.  Be sure to have your comments left by the end of Friday!
I already know what I'm getting for my birthday from my husband too!  A handcrank sewing machine!  I am so excited!
Have a great day ya'll!
