Blog Party Mania - Giveaway Day!

It's a busy week out there in blogland, beginning with Amy's Virtual Blogger's Quilt Festival.  Last I checked, nearly 600 entries in the show.  Amazing! 

Lots of folks had a great time at International Quilt Market in Kansas City last week and are sharing pictures on their blogs and Flickr accounts for those of us who stayed home to enjoy too!

And now it's Giveaway Day (Week) hosted by Sew Mama, Sew!


I'm giving away a KIT for a sweet little Thread-Catcher Pincushion! 


Perfect for the sewing room, the kit includes the pattern, instructions and supplies you need to make your own thread-catcher, including the pre-quilted "Threads" fabric in the picture.  I fill my pincushions with rice, but you can choose your own filler, which will make it more cost-effective to ship internationally.

Rules:  One random winner, comment below.
The giveaway is open until May 25th

While you’re here, I'd love to have you follow/subscribe to my blog, FB or Pinterest; check out my free Tutorials as well as Quilting Basics Tutes, YouTube videos on the sidebar, or peruse my Patterns.

OK, as for a comment:  My birthday is coming up, so... A favorite birthday gift?  Tell me what it was, is, or would be.  My kids always ask, and I always say, "A clean house and happy kids."  Of course, a cruise might be nice someday, too!

Good Luck!  Be sure to check out all the other giveaways at Sew Mama's.

UPDATE 5/26/12:  GIVEAWAY CLOSED

Happy Sewing!

  3. My husband took me up in a hot air balloon for my 40th birthday - fantastic, although the landing is a bit scary!
    Love this little kit. It would be a cool project to make with my teeny sewing group here in France (there are 3 of us!!) It's good for my French to translate projects for the other two.
    Thank you.

  164. My son made me a stone crab for my birthday last year with help from his dad. He added eggs and details with felt. I love it and it sits on my dresser so I can look at it everyday.

  166. I find that people don't necessarily listen to what I ask for on my birthday. I would love a stack of fabric or a giftcard to my favorite on-line fabric store.

  170. This birthday was a big one for me (30) and i got lots of lovely gifts but the best gifts were the suprise arrival of 2 of my oldest friends and their families who live more than 12 & 18 hours drive away. They flew down just for me. I was ecstatic to see them.
