Book Winner

In the middle of Thanksgiving festivities and such, I received word from the publisher at Split Tree Publishing of our winner in the book giveaway I sponsored in October.


My Frienzie Pam was the winner! How nice! Since most of my readers here are friends and family, there was a really good chance that I'd know the winner. Congratulations, Pam! I hope you like the book! It's a sweet little thing, in my opinion. Pam has a strong sense of family and tradition, so the book is perfect for her. I have seen a couple of quilts that have been handed down in her family displayed around her house. 



I have more to add! And it is so relevant! I can't believe I didn't think of this when I made the original post. (Fortunately, I have friends I can count on to be my brain when my brain needs help!)

Just after Pam retired from CHS where we Frienzies all worked together, she set about to write a book. Her years of teaching and counseling teens gave her much material to use in a YA book about teen pregnancy.  Her book is called Pregnancy is the Common Thread and is available on Amazon.

Each chapter begins with a quote about quilting. The book illustrates the effects of an unplanned teen pregnancy on not just the girl, but on her family and community as well. As the story unfolds, the neighbors get together to make a quilt for the young mom. One reviewer explains that this would be a great book for middle school or youth groups to study and discuss.

I so admire Pam for accomplishing her goal of writing a book.

Don't you think it's fitting that Pam would win the give away? Serendipity at its best!

Happy Quilting, Friends!
