Back to School Giveaway: Sketchbook Sets – Closed

It’s back to school season, so I’m giveaway two of my sketchbook sets. Those of you who know me well, or read my blog regularly, you know how much I love sketchbooks. I love to practice graphite drawing and experiment with different illustrations. Lately, most of my pages have been nature-inspired.

I made one set with Marisa’s Meet the Gang fabrics. Her characters are so whimsical and silly; they just make me smile.

I made the other set with Lizzy House’s Castle Peeps fabrics. I love her unique twist on the fairy tale theme  with her illustrations.

Both sets include a large zipper pouch that measures 12 inches wide by 7 inches tall, a sketchbook cover with moleskin notebook, and a smaller zipper pouch that measures 7 inches wide by 4 inches tall, big enough to fit a couples pens, pencils, erasers and other drawing or doodling tools you like to carry. The smaller zipper pouch velcros to the back of the sketchbook cover (just like this set) to keep your drawing tools handy. Everything fits inside the larger zipper pouch, which can also be used as a clutch. How fun is that!

Leave me a comment by noon this Friday, August 24 for a chance to win one of these sets. CLOSED.

Thanks for stopping by!

A Holiday Winner

Giveaway Day – December 2011 – Closed

It seems like ages since I’ve offered a giveaway, so I’m excited to be participating in Sew,Mama, Sew’s Giveaway Day again!

I am offering the book Pretty in Patchwork Doll Quilts which was the inspiration for the mini quilt I also made for the lucky winner (see below). This book is full of 24 projects for making mini quilts in a great variety of sizes and themes.

Along with this book you will receive this mini quilt I made based on the cover project, a Christmas star measuring 19.5 inches all the way around. Perfect for a table topper or centerpiece.

I used that green fabric for the binding and that red fabric for the backing.

I will also include the scraps in case you want to make something else to match your new mini quilt, like a mug rug, potholder or smaller mini quilt.

Leave a comment by 7 pm CST on Friday, December 16 to be entered. International entries are welcome. Good luck, friends!

Winner of Quilting Kit

A big thank you to all 717 of you for stopping by to enter my giveaway for Sew,Mama,Sew‘s semi-annual Giveaway Day event! What a thrill to meet so many wonderful sewers and quilters from all over the world.

The random number generator helped me pick the winner:

220 – Margie C. who commented:

What a pretty bag! Thanks for the chance :)
hugs, margie

I thought there were a couples things missing from my original kit, such as a pincushion and some sewing needles, so I will be including them in your package!

Thank you again to everyone who commented. Remember, Sew,Mama,Sew hosts this Giveaway Day twice a year, in May and December. Maybe we can do this again in a few months. Hope to see you between now and then!

Fabric Talk

I won a giveaway recently from Lisa of A Spoonful of Sugar. (thank you, Lisa!) It was a gift certificate to the Ladybug Quilt Shop, which is stocked full of beautiful fabrics. It took me almost two weeks to decide what to get! I ended up choosing two packs of Pure charm squares, and a stack of these whimsical Be Merry fabrics. (charm square packs include 40 –  5″ fabric squares)

I also splurged on a few more charm square packs from fabric collections I love but have tried hard to resist. I might have a new favorite designer here. I’m hoping to use these to make Christmas gifts for friends and family.

I’m in the process of re-organizing my stash, so I didn’t want to add more fabric to the piles. I now have a drawer dedicated to charm squares, where I like to keep pattern ideas too. The drawer is just about full now, so I cannot order more. (but I probably will anyway!)

Giveaway Winner

Thank you to everyone for entering my giveaway this week! It was fun to see the variety of favorite colors in the hexagon needle books.

The trusty Random Number Generator gave me number 33, who was Karen P. I have sent you an email, Karen, to let you know you won!

Karen liked the green needle book the best, so I will send it off to her sewing corner along with a set of fat quarters in those henna prints.

Thanks again everyone for playing along! I’m am planning to sponsor another giveaway for the next Sew, Mama, Sew Giveaway Day (in December, I think). I’m so excited because I already have the goodies planned!
