I came across this giveaway and decided I wanted to participate. For those of you stopping by, welcome and enjoy my blogland home for a bit. I always love it when new faces (and old regular faces) stop by. Wait, not that my regulars are "old." And not that you are "regular" in any way. Oh brother! I just love it when everyone stops by. It keeps a gal from being too lonely!
You see, I hosted my first giveway last month on my birthday and I enjoyed it tremendously. It's very selfish of me, but the feeling I got when I had a chance to give a stranger something fun and different is, well, it brought me some euphoria!
Honestly, it's the same kind of happiness I felt when I watched those Disney movies, like Aladdin with the magic carpet whisking the hero and heroine to safety and to fun places. It's the kind of happiness I feel when I see my kids do something good without being asked. It's the kind of happiness I want for myself and I hope, I can pass on to one of you fellow bloggers by giving my services. By giving you something you usually don't get for free or for yourself. A chance to have someone else do some of the work. I want to take you on my carpet ride of euphoria and therefore, I offer you the following:
2) 2 packs of Dritz inner fuse, and
3) my services*.
*Here's the disclaimer and parameters of my services:
(A) I am not a professional longarm quilter. I have a mid-arm machine and I would qualify myself as an advanced beginner/intermediate.
(B) I will quilt 2 pieces of fleece together for you or a finished, pieced top to a fleece back. No batting will be included and binding your quilt is not included, either.
(C) I will provide the thread and work with you regarding color of thread and design choice for the quilting and I will work with you to determine what you'd like done within my capablities. In other words, this will not be show material. This will be a lovely "I get to use it to cuddle up in," quilt.
(D) You will provide the pieced top and fleece backing (please be sure they are already sized to match with the backing being a minimum of three to four inches longer and wider on EACH side) or the two fleece pieces. (Note, anti-pill fleece works best for the quilting and the durability of the finished product.) You mail those to me and as part of the giveaway, I will mail the quilted product back. (Please note, I am not responsible for any taxes or tariffs, a foreign country may impose on your prize or any postal restrictions.)
(E) The final size can be anything from a wall-hanging to a twin size quilt.
(F) IF YOU DO NOT SEW (as this is a crafting bloggers giveaway) ENTER ANYWAY. We may be able to come up with a way to still give you my services.
To give you a sense of what I can do, here are 2 links to my webshots albums for your browsing pleasure of my work with fleece.
