that you cannot play along.... YOU WILL BE
CHARGED 5 EURO's .....
Sew be sure if you are making this commitment,

We have some on a waiting list, sew cross
your fingers ladies...you still might get a chance to participate.

My best





 Yes today is the day to 
sign up for the Bowls with Borders..
and how exciting this has been. 
Ok, I speak for myself because I got to make it first...
Here is my progress sew far..

This will be our button above, I just have to make
the code, sew come on back later...
you have till July 1st to place this button on your blog.

FREE Pattern only for those who participate in the blog hop.

Regina;s links on July 1st. ( you can purchase directly from her.
