Giveaway Day!


Merry Christmas!  I decided to participate with Giveaway Day on Sew Mama Sew this year, and have a fun prize for you to win just for visiting and commenting, and a link for more giveaways today.  Last summer, I did an event on my blog called Christmas In July where I made a tutorial for a sewing kit or jewelry case for giving as a gift. It was just one of several tutorials during that event.

It closes with drawstrings and there is no hand sewing!  If you would like to make one for a gift or for yourself, the full tutorial is at this link – Sewing Kit Tutorial.  Or if you want to win this one with an additional goodie, keep reading.

While you are here, please take a minute to look around and see the variety of subjects on my blog.  I have a lot of interests, and do posts on crafting, sewing, quilting, stamping, tablescapes, decorating, recipes, book reviews and lots more.  There are several events each year on my blog that have great giveaways too, like my Christmas in July event (sponsors) and Autumn Jubilee.  See a this link for a review of the Christmas in July (projects) event for lots of Christmas cheer!   Coming up in the next few days are lots more Christmas ideas and projects, and I’d like to invite new readers to follow using any of the ways on the sidebar.  One table topper I use over and over is the one shown in the picture below, a simple hexagonal shape with rings of alternating values and colors in red, green and ecru. The pattern is free in my Craftsy store. While you are there, please take a look at my other patterns.

If you are in the mood for a quick quilt-along, Scrap Dance Waltz is just getting underway, with the cutting and Block A instructions up.  Block B will be next week (on Wednesday the 14th) and we will finish in January.  After that my next mystery quilt will begin.  The mystery quilts are always scrappy, so you can use up your leftovers from other projects.  Scrap Dance Original and Scrap Dance Tango are previous mystery quilts.

For my giveaway today, I’ll send one lucky winner this sewing kit, with a spool of Aurifil thread!  To enter, leave a comment saying what you are sewing this season.  International entries are welcome, yes, I will ship to anywhere in the world.  Blog followers can have a second entry, just leave a second comment stating how you follow – email, Bloglovin, Feedly, Feedspot, or blog reader/blog roll.  Most of the time I respond by email to every comment except on giveaway posts as there are usually too many to do that.

The giveaway will remain open for comments through Sunday, December 11.  The winner will be drawn on Monday and notified by email.  I’ll update this post with the drawing on Monday.

Update – The random number generator picked #2-8 and the winner is Barb N who commented “I’ve just finished two Christmas Tree Skirts, one for myself, and one for my daughter who will not be able to come home for Christmas this year. First time ever! Going to miss her dearly, so maybe this tree skirt will give her a little cheer from home.”  Congratulations, Barb!  And thank you to everyone that entered.

Linking up with Sew Mama Sew’s Giveaway Day!  Visit the link for lots of giveaways today!  The giveaways all are open until Sunday, so check back for more linkups through the week.   The links are available to see more blogs with giveaways, however the giveaway deadline has now passed.

  1. right now i just finished the quilt from shabby fabrics, blooming butterflies, my two year old granddaughter looks at it and “wows” every time she comes in the house, [yes, it’s for her!], and as per your recent email, i just started a small nine block, sampler, simple, small and alot of fun. [not listed all the wip’s that are always on the go!] i’m also crocheting several babyblankets, with cables [addicted to cables!], and one HUGE afghan for one of my married children.

Amazing how many emails have been sent at this time of morning! Although, I for the most part am pretty happy discovering them at around 7 am. LOL. I am definitely feeling better, now to get completely over the head cold and back to normal hours.

    I definitely remember Deanna and I starting to make this bag from your tutorial. I do not know what happened, but it was not completed for some reason….I must ask her today.

Wait….Triple Bonus because you have added the Thread! Yippeee……I am always needed thread it seems. I have to quilt some quilts today and finish a few small projects, but then will be back to getting more of Block B sewn together! Have a fantastic creative day! Plus, a great big hug for the chance at the give away prize and for letting us know about the other give aways going on!
