Sew Mama Sew Day Giveaway

Welcome if this is the first time you are visiting! I hope you take a look around and come back often to see what I am working on. I am biting the bullet and trying this out by doing my first ever giveaway!  I love to try to win prizes so why not be willing to give something back as well.


I am a newer blogger just started last November.  Just a little background my main craft is quilting.  Trying to use up the large stash from the last 20 years but buying up the new pretty fabric too.  So yes, there is some hoarding going on over here.

So enough of that stuff.  Here is what I am giving away:

A charm pack of the "new colors"  - are they still considered new?  I hear there will more new colors coming soon.  Either way I love the Kona Solids.  Here is what I did with the a charm pack of solids in the beginning of the year.  It is a Moda Bake Shop free pattern.




Here are the necessary rules.

1.  The giveaway will stay open until 5:00 PM PST on Friday, May 10th.  I will notify the winner by email before the end of the day on May 12.  Sorry US shipments only.

2.  No-reply commenters, please leave your email address in your message, otherwise I will have no way of contacting you if you win which would be unfortunate.  I will then draw a new winner.

3.  One chance to win by telling me what you have lined up for summer fun this year.  I can't wait for it to get here and we spend alot of time on the lake with family and friends.

3. There is no requirement to sign up to my blog, but if you would like to, new followers are always welcome and of course, as an added bonus, existing and new followers will gain an extra entry. So please leave a second comment telling me so.

I hope you come back to visit and now I have to go enter more giveaways too!
