Spotty Dotty Snails, a sale, and a giveaway!!!

It's time for a sale in my Etsy Shop don't you think!!?
How about...
Buy 1 get 1 free!!!

I have even added some of your old favourite designs to my Shop, as well as this new one!

**Spotty, Dotty Snails**
This is Francis Snail, known to his friends as Freckles (and I think you can see why). He had a childhood dream to be a rodeo rider but when he met the love of his life he gladly gave up the dream to be her main man. But Francis began wearing a bandana around his long neck as a reminder that maybe one day that dream just might come to pass. Maybe when their daughter leaves home, perhaps?
 This is his ever loving wife, Mayberry. She's a collector of dotty hats, pearls, a lover of pink, and an avid gardener! Francis is her hero, and if one day he wants them to ride off into the sunset so he can try his luck in the ring she'll happily follow along!
 Juliette is their only child, an indulged tween who just can't get enough of bags and bows! She doesn't know why her father wants to work in the dusty, dry rodeo circuit when there are so many wonderfully clean and bright shopping malls yet to explore!! Her motto is 'Shop till you can't fit anymore bags in your mouth!"....
 You will find this pattern and many more HERE in my Etsy Shop from today!

PLEASE NOTE:
If you purchase 1 pattern tell me in your purchase instructions which extra pattern you would like me to send you free.
Purchase 2 patterns, get 2 free...and so on.

One more thing before I head off to do a mountain of washing and cook Sunday brunch.
Aren't these CUTE!!!??
I saw a similar pair on Vicki's blog and loved them! The very next day I saw these ones in a patchwork shop and had to bring them home. Her name is 'Polly Pink'.
I thought you might like a pair too?
Leave a comment on this blog post and on Wednesday night I'll randomly draw a winner ... or two. :-)
Share about it on your blog and you can leave a 2nd comment for an extra chance!

Now, off to the washing!!
Hugs
Jenny
