Giveaway - At last

Giveaway has closed now!

At long last I am having my little giveaway to celebrate my blogiversary. My first post was here but I didn't count this as I only started blogging regularly here so this is the post I consider my blogiversary.  I was thinking long and hard about what to giveaway and it's not easy. I'm not super quick with the making like some more prolific quilters in blog land and I don't have a vast fabric stash where I can pull out bundles of fat quarters to giveaway. So it didn't feel like there were a lot of options. I saw that Fabric Rehab had their scrap bags back in stock so I purchased some and thought I'd give one away. As the selection in the bags focused more on larger pieces and had less variety than they sometimes do.  I thought I'd supplement this with some more scraps from my own stash. If I waited until it was completely full and ready to photograph the swap would be in about three months time. ;-)

Giveaway - Blogged

So this is the fabric rehab bag and I'll add some more to fill it out ok?

As an extra something. I'll also be including this Cath Kidson tea towel. Which you can use in your kitchen to dry your dishes or turn into some other crafty item.

Giveaway Time - Blogged

See I told you it was Cath Kidson - it says so on the label!

Giveaway Time

So how can you win this tea towel and scrap bag?

1) Leave a comment about anything that takes your fancy. If it helps to have a topic to comment on, then tell me what you'd like to read more of on my blog. (Or I guess what you'd like me to stop going on about!)

2) Leave another comment if you're a follower because it's nice for me to reward those of you that read my drivel and ramblings witty and insightful musings on a regular basis. :-)

The three people that offered suggestions as to what yesterdays mystery item was will get a bonus entry if they choose to enter because I realised there was no way that any sane person would have worked out what this was without a lot more clues. I mean until Moh requested it I'd never heard of them.  Even my mum said it looked like a pillow for a dwarf and this was after I'd explained what it was! (I will reveal all in another blogpost!)

As is customary with these swaps if you enter please make sure there is a way for me to contact you if you win.  I'll keep it open until next Friday. International people feel free to enter.

  22. I am now a follower but I am in the same senile camp as Hadley because I have been reading you but failed to press the follow button! I didn't have a clue what you were making yesterday and couldn't even hazzard a guess as it was late when I was reading the post and my brain was frazzled!

  24. Congratulations on your blogoversary. What a lovely giveaway. The fabric looks very cute. I'd give the tea towel to a friend of mine, not because I don't like it (I do), but just because she is a big Cath Kidson fan and it would make her day :-) I'd kkep the fabric for mw though :-)
