Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day! I'm in.
Sew Mama Sew is at it again! I just made the sign up last week and I'm thrilled I'm not missing my chance to participate this year. I hope my entry is enticing and I do ship internationally.
There are 3 different giveaways going on and you can link to them here.
Handcrafted Items + Supplies
Sewing + Knitting Supplies/Materials
My entry is the following quilt. It is currently on the frame and I'm finalizing the quilting so I will update the photos with a finished picture tonight, hopefully. For now, you can take a look at the top. This measures approximately 44"x51". Perfect as a lap quilt for reading on the porch or for a toddler's quilt.
This was my participation quilt for the SQ Paper-piece Quilt along that just ended. I was going to call it Sun Over the Pyramid since that was what the hubs named it and it was better than anything I came up with. However, after seeing the news of the tornado in Joplin, MO, I can't call it that. It's much more like a tornado streaking a path and the sun shining on both sides of the devestation. At least to me. So, I'm going to call this The Sun Still Shines. Now really, if you have a name suggestion, and you are the winner, I'll label it with your suggestion. I do not feel my name has to be the one you have to live with since it's not finished yet.
So how to do this?
First, say a prayer or send good thoughts for those in Joplin. They need all the good will that can be spared.
Second, leave me a comment and answer these 2 questions (really, I would love to read your answers):
1) What was your favorite thing about the last quilt retreat (or class) you attended?
2) What was your least favorite thing about the last quilt retreat (or class) you attended?
If you haven't attended any, please answer what you are interested in for a retreat (or class).
And just because, if you are a follower, leave me a second comment letting me know you follow and I'll give you a bonus entry. This is not required, just an extra chance.
The chance to enter closes at midnight ET on May 26. I will announce the winner later that day.
OH! and before I forget, if you do not have a blog or if you have your security settings set so that your email is not linked off your blog, PLEASE leave me your email so I may reach you if you win. I will reply to every commentor here acknowledging entry so if you don't leave me an email in your comment and you don't get a reply, you may want to check your settings and reach back out.
You can leave your email as janesmith (at) iwanttowin (dot) come to avoid auto spammers.
Good luck in the drawing and thank you for stopping by. The winner will be drawn using random.org.
