Giveaway Winner...2 little quilts!

This giveaway is now closed. Thank you so much for all the wonderful comments... You are all so nice and sweet. And the winner is (drumroll) Zlaty! I will get in touch with you soon.
 It is a New Year! 2010 was a good one, but I can not wait to see what 2011 will bring.  I have been working on a surprise giveaway and yesterday I finished the binding on the last little quilt. I would like to give both little quilts away to one person.
 The first little quilt is a Snowmen Quilt with two pine trees.
 I did the blanket stitches around the snowmen by hand.
 The second little quilt is from my scraps and I made the pattern up as I went.

Backing of the two quilts, the red backing goes with the Snowmen Quilt. 
If you are a follower or a new follower of my blog and would like to win these two quilts, please leave me a comment on this posting. I will pick a winner January 11. Good luck to all of you!
  Thanks for stopping by and for making me SMILE each day.
