Sew Mama Sew Giveaway WEEK!

Welcome to the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Extravaganza!


This Giveaway has officially ended!

I look forward to the Sew Mama Giveaway every year.  This time I get to be the giver...and I have to say, I'm thrilled to be participating!


Being a new blogger (very new), I'm still finding my way, my voice and my own blogging style.  This giveaway is a great way to introduce ourselves, build readership and find some fantastic new blogs!

This is going to be fun...are you ready?  Set?  Let's go!!!

I have two prizes up for grabs!  Yippie!

THE FIRST PRIZE
A beautiful collection of Hand Dyed Fat Quarters (1 1/4 yard total).  Hand dying fabric is a new passion for me.  I love creating unique colors and textures.  I have many other fat quarter sets available in my Etsy shop, Twiggy & Opal.  



This set is bright and bold.  Perfect for so many projects.  The variation in the fabric is what I love the most!

THE SECOND PRIZE:  
A great combination of goodies!  A lovely, fragrant and beautiful bar of soap!  This soap is made by my lovely daughter Britt.  She is just getting ready to open her own Etsy shop 'Hello Soap'.  Also,  make-up bag with a vintage button heart on the front!


A great little 'pick me up' for anyone!

How about the rules?!  I bet you would like to know what you have to do to win, well....
a couple of back flips, do a happy dance?  NAH!  Let's keep it simple!

You have two chances to win:

#1.  Leave one comment and answer this question.  What is your favorite tool?  Quilting, sewing, power tool...anything!

#2.  Follow my blog and leave another comment saying you have done so.  If you already follow my blog leave a comment saying so.

  4. I do follow this Blog already - and I love to see what you have to say each time I get a notification that there is a new post!

    Favorite tool - well, the obvious answer would be a crochet hook, or YARN, but I think I have to say instead that my enormous, mountainous, humongous megalo-yarn stash is my alltime-necessary tool to work with. I always have a coordinating yarn, no matter what the project calls for, without running out to the store. (Okay, most just think i am a hoarder - but there IS an upside.)

  122. I wish your daughter well with her new venture. My favorite, and most expensive, tool is...me. Seriously, if I'm unable to sew, quilt, knit, spin, felt, do my farm work, etc., it all comes to a screeching halt.
    My favorite tool is me and I take Very Good Care of me -smile-.

    ReplyDelete
  123. I've been intrigued with hand-dyed fabrics, but haven't taken time to try it out! My favorite tool is a little pick tool from a nutcracker set my mom had since I was a child. I use it to guide the seams to the foot when I'm putting on binding by machine, and also to straighten out corners after I turn fabric back to the right side. And it didn't cost me a dime!
