Sew Mama Sew Give Away Day!


Hello and welcome if you're calling in today because of the Sew Mama Sew Give Away Day! Please feel free to have a look around my blog if it's new to you and if you're a follower of old: Welcome back!

For the give away I'm giving away this charm pack of Salt Air by Cosmo Cricket for Moda. With summer coming and going to the seaside being one of my favourite things to do it seemed to fit into the summery theme.

_MG_3683a

My sewing mojo has really ramped up recently and the projects I've been making have been filling my scraps boxed to the brim. It was already hard to get the lid on. So how about I also fill a ziplock bag full of scraps for the winner too? I always think other peoples scraps are more interesting than my own and I know a lot of people feel the same way. 


_MG_3682b

And in case you're wondering what scraps might be found in my scrap box - Heather Ross, Joel Dewberry, Denyse Schmidt, A M Horner, Laurie Wisbrun, Echino, Lotta Jansdotta and many many more!

So how do you enter? Leave me a comment any comment. If you want you can guess where my other half is flying off to on Wednesday. I'll give you some clues. He's in the British Army and it's work related and I really wish I was going with him! If the winner happens to guess right I'll throw a little extra something in too!

You can have a second entry if you follow me or become a follower. Just leave a comment letting me know how you follow.

The give away will be open until 5pm, May 16 PST.  Please make sure if you're a no reply blogger you leave me some way of contacting you.  This give away is open to anyone anywhere.

Now I'll leave you go check out some of the other fab give aways over at Sew Mama Sew!
