Dog Days of Summer

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket


*Edited to add* My drawing will be on Monday - my husband and I are getting away for a much needed weekend away!

Welcome to Robinznest! I hope you have time to come in and browse and spend some time.

I love free stuff! And Shannon at Rocks in My Dryer is hosting a free stuff giveaway bigger than you can imagine. You should go check it out! And I figured if I plan to enter my name for every single give-away offer in this carnival the very least I could do would be to give away something too. So, I am having TWO giveaways! Here is the first:


I had a pattern and fabric for these "stack and whack" placemats for quite a while and I was excited to make them. I was really pleased with how they turned out. This is a set of four rectangle placemats. They are tan, brick red, and green. I will draw a random name on Monday to see who gets these.

Then, when I was sitting in a hospital waiting room last week, I browsed through a current issue of Martha Stewart's Living magazine and found this idea:

It's a really nifty way to use a pillowcase to make a fun bag. This bag can be used for books, crafts, overnite stuff, beach stuff, or as a grocery bag. It is washable and very sturdy. I grabbed a pillowcase and stiched several of them in no time. The one I am giving away is right here:

If you look very carefully, you will see an added decor that will be fun for all those who love blogging - can you see it?


So, if you are interested in winning either of these just leave your name and you MUST leave me an email address. Also indicate which prize you would prefer or mark both if you would like either one. Isn't this fun?
