A Giveaway for 2

Welcome! If you are here to check out the goodies for the May Day Giveway, sponsored by Sew,Mama,Sew, I am happy to be participating with two items to giveaway.

UPDATE: Comments closed now.

The second giveaway item is this charm pack of Flutterby fabrics by Tula Pink. (a charm pack is a pack of 5 inch 40-42Β squares)

Leave me a comment by 9pm (central time) Thursday, May 20. I would love to hear what you are most looking forward to this summer, if you live in the Northern hemisphere, or what was the highlight of your summer if you live in the Southern hemisphere. I am happy to ship internationally if you are surfing outside the United States.Β I will consult with the Random Number Generator on Friday morning to choose two lucky winners.

Don’t forget, Amy’s Blogger Quilt Festival is coming up May 21-28!

I am thrilled to have my shop Patchwork Trails participating in that festival as a sponsor!

I will be offering one of my makeup bags for a giveway item at the end of the festival. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  27. Summer- well this is the first year my son actually has a “summer” since he just started PreK this year, however I just got divorced, so nothing special planned except going to the river and catching mud cats πŸ™‚ Or working on my dad’s blueberry farm on the weekends πŸ™‚

  35. What a wonderful giveaway. I love Moda everything! I am most looking forward to a trip to Vegas at the end of August, not so much for the casinos, but I can visit all the Vegas fabric shops. I love the shop hop!

  36. How wonderful. Love a give a way. Well this has been alot of work and no sew time. I am still trying to get moved. We have moved to another state and 3 hours from where we were. Lots of change. No internet,TV or anthing at the old place and i have had to stay there for the last two weeks. I can’t wait to get settled. This last weekend a friend and I did get away from it all. It was nice just wished we had taken our sewing machines. Did some walking thru the woods,and some shopping. Sometimes I think working again would be easier. I’m looking for some calm weather. I’m really tired of cold and rain then heat up humidity. I guess mother nature knows what she is doing.

  37. Great giveaway! Since my kids are grown & out of the house, summertime isn’t really vacation time for me anymore! And we actually have pretty much year round summer in Hawaii, so it’ll be more of the same for me!

  64. To be honest, I’m looking the most forward to not having to bundle up (and un-bundle) my 2 little ones up in layers of winter clothes a million times every day.
    I’m really hoping for a a-pair-of-sandals-and-some-sun-screen summer here in Denmark, but it’s not looking too good so far…

  357. I am looking forward to sitting in our lawn swing in the evenings after dinner this summer.

  358. Hello Terri,
    Wow you have had a lot of visitors,I am so glad our Summer is over and enjoying the beautiful Autumn days. I loved this Summer because we had no day light saving. We don’t need it when we have months of 45c degree days. I hated Summer because we had no rain and it was the hottest on record. 150 years ago they started taking records and this has been the hottest. Looking forward to some rain.
    Happy days.

  359. I am due in Aug with my 6th so I am really looking forward to that and I am also looking forward to floating in the pool and feeling weightless.

  360. Thank you for your generous offerings for the giveaway. This summer, I am working on little sewing projects…cell phone case, head starting some Christmas projects. But the big project is potty training my son….does that count? πŸ™‚

  365. I am really looking forward to summer. It has been winter here in the Colorado mountains for too long if you ask me πŸ™‚ The summers are great here (because of our altitude) – it typically doesn’t get warmer than the high 80’s. Swimming pool here we come!

    Thanks for offering this generous giveaway!

  366. One of the highlights of my recent Australian summer was discovering that setting up a couple of tables in our backyard under an enormous eucalyptus made for an extremely pleasant lunch with friends. This is something we’ll definitely repeat next summer!

  388. Right now I’m looking forward to heading up north to Wisconsin where I am originally from to visit my family. It’s been almost a year since we’ve last seen them and my daughter will be turning two soon so she’s grown quite a bit since the last time they saw her. We’re in Panama City Beach, FL and the oil spill is slowing moving towards us… 😦 It would be nice to enjoy the beach all summer long if the oil doesn’t get to us!

  389. I am most looking forward to taking apart my first quilt and re making it into a hexagon quilt.

What a great way to spend a weekend, especially since all of our kids are grown so it’s adults only, LOL!

  395. I am looking forward to my soon to be arriving new niece or nephew, and a week at the beach.

  396. Thanks for the giveaway! It is awesome! I am looking forward to a relaxing and wonderful summer out on the boat on the river with my friends and family. Oh and ECLIPSE!!!
