Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day - Giveaway Day 1

This giveaway is now closed. Winner will be announced soon.



I'm joining the giveaway day again. I have missed out the last couple so I decided to host two giveaways. This is the first giveaway. 
These are quilting pattern books and clothing and sewing patterns I haven't used and don't think I will.  Also included are a few fat quarters from JoAnn's that I cannot remember what I bought it for. Maybe to line a soccer bag for son #2, I'm not sure. Let's see if I can list it for you:
  • Garden Lattice Quilts by Eleanor Burns
  • Quilt it Yourself Booklet by Simplicity
  • American Patchwork Quilting Magazine Pattern insert
  • Trip Around the World by Eleanor Burns
  • Irish Chain in a Day by Eleanor Burns
  • Quilts for Kids to Love by American School of Needlework
  • Quilts for Baby by That Patchwork Place
  • Pillow Trio by ModKid
  • Kitschy Corset Apron by Brassy Apple
  • Ruthie's Romper by Izzy& Ivy
  • Long Live Vintage Pattern book by AdornIt
  • Stars & Stripes pattern and templates by Teri Henderson Tope
  • Fons & Porters Printed Treasures Label Kit
Anyway, short and sweet post. If you would like, please post a comment and tell me what the healthiest thing you've eaten or will eat today is. (I like to come up with random ideas for these giveaway comments. hehe)

One entry per person and good luck!  One entry per person and good luck! This giveaway is open to international participants and will close for all on May 10 at 5 p.m. PST. Winners drawn randomly using the random number generator.

ETA: If you are a no comment blogger or an anonymous commenter, please leave me your email. If you win and I have no way of reaching you, I will choose another winner.

Please take a look at Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day post for hundreds of more wonderful giveaways!

Cheers!

We're in a step competition at work - the idea is to do 10k per day - and I brought a rather boring salad to work with me today. However, while walking I decided to stop and get an egg drop soup and the local chinese restaurant that I walk past. The soup isnt that calorie laden and it was great with the salad.

Yikes, not real healthy today. Guess it would have to be a peanut butter sandwich!

robin said...

I had bacon and eggs for breakfast.

Saraccino said...

Salad :)

Rucola with dried tomatoes, goat cheese and yellow paprika with a little bit of very good (and way too expensive but I am addicted to the taste! ^^) olive oil and some 12 year old balsamico. Simple but delicious, especially if all the single items are from a high quality.

Thanks for the chance to win!
