My giveaway for 2010 Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day


No it is not my youngest granddaughter, Kylie, nor the baby turkey she's holding, it's this.............
SEW MAMA SEW is hosting a giant giveaway day.  I wanted to give something away but couldn't decide what........so I think I'm going to giveaway all 3 options that have been bouncing around in my head.  
Leave one comment only please and tell me what you would like to receive as the giveaway.  Include a first choice and second choice.  Although it costs more to send things to other countries I will send them where ever you are, so join in the fun.  Giveaway ends midnight May 20th my time CST.   On May 21, 2010 I will pull some names out of my hat box. With all these giveaways, I am going to have to find another hat box or somewhere for the embroidered pieces I store in it to go. ha ha ha!

So these are the 3 giveaway options:

1. From the Mini Mystery #1, the red bird quilt blocks that I made from the mini mystery pattern. 
  

2. A Snowball pattern (pattern only, not the completed blocks), including the 16 original patterns plus the bonus freebie one.  (which reminds me I need to redo that freebie one as a PDF so it will print the correct size). 



3. A Mystery gift package of a few of my other patterns and some fabric.  As soon as I know what I'll post a picture. Hmmmm?!?

After joining in all the givaway fun, you embroiderers come back and join in the mystery stitch. 
Part B will be posted Monday the 17th too.  Here's a look at what we've done so far.....

    ReplyDelete
  110. Hmm I'm going to be brave and go with the third option as my favourite. Who doesn't love surprises? But I also love the quilt blocks (although I don't actually quilt myself, so I would have to find someone else to make the rest of the quilt, or learn pretty darn quickly!) and the snowballs pattern is awesome too. Anything to do with winter is a hit in Winnipeg! :)
