SuzGuz Design Give Away

Well, it's finally here. The first day of school. They are so clean and polished in their new duds!

I can't believe that Tink is already in the fourth grade. She asked to walk in by herself this morning when we dropped her off. So, we did (tear, tear, sad face). I am so glad they were excited to be going back. It makes life much easier.

Pumpkin and her friend goofing off. Way too much free time on their hands.

And the most exciting thing of all, at least for Russ. He talked Pumpkin into taking tap again this year. Ms. Shelley will be so happy to hear this news.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot. This week's giveaway is the pattern for Candy Bar Road from Susan Guzman at SuzGuz Designs. This pattern was designed for Dana at the Old Red Barn Co. for a previous giveaway and was inspired by Russ. And here is the best part of all. This week we will be choosing not just one but three lucky winners!




Have a wonderful day!
Rhonda:)
