Christmas Challenge and a Hot Potato!……

I am rather late (I hang my head in shame) in running this Hot Potato Giveaway, but I finally have made this gorgeous Little Wallet up.

Of course I couldn’t just make one. I ended up making six!!
DPP_0005
I loved making them and want to keep them all for me but I will keep the Green one…of course!! and the rest will go in my Christmas Box.
So Judith, I have five goodies to go into the Christmas Challenge and I am number 34 on your side bar on your blog.
This Hot Potato started with Sarah from Sarah’s Prim Treasures and she hopes it continues to be passed on so it goes around the world. Which is exciting.
Would you like to win the giveaway of the pattern?
Wallet

but, the rules are clear!  When I won this pattern from Melinda of Melinda’s Fabric Fancies, I could have it for 1 month then had to pass it along in a giveaway, so that someone else could have the joy of making this very quick and easy little wallet for 1 month, before they too, had to pass it along in a giveaway.  Specifically, and these are direct from the source, the rules are as follows:
1. You must have a blog to be in it.
2. Once you receive it, you must pass it on to another blogger via a giveaway within 1 month! It will be great to see where it goes around the world......
3. Add your name and blog address to the card provided which will also be passed on with the pattern.
So, if you agree to have it made and to pass it on within this time frame, please comment on this post! I am happy to post anywhere in the world. 
I will make a random selection for the winner next Saturday, September 25th, 2010, from all comments left on this post. Only one comment per person please.
Hugs to all……..Vicki Purple Flowers
