Giveaway Day!


It's here -- today is Sew, Mama, Sew's giveaway day and I'm participating. This is what I'm giving away --

1/2 yard of Laurel Burch fabric, suitable for beautiful quilt labels -- and a skein of Trellis yarn which could be used for knitting, crocheting, or embellishing.

I'm also planning to make one or two small things out of my selvages, so those will be thrown in as well. No pictures of those, of course, because they're not finished yet. You'll just have to trust me.

Here are my rules -- please be sure to read them carefully.

1. You must comment on this post by 6 PM Eastern U.S. time on Sunday, May 31st. Tell me where you live (no, I don't need your street address -- town and state or country is fine) -- I think it's fun to know where my readers are from. One comment per person, please. There will be one random winner picked either on the evening of the 31st or the morning of June 1st.

2. I will ship internationally.

3. You must leave me a way to get in touch with you if you win. If your profile is set as anonymous or "no reply", I can't contact you if you win. This is important. Too many people lose out on winning giveaways because of this.

That's it -- pretty simple. So go ahead and start commenting and be sure to visit all of the other bloggers with their giveaways. Have fun and thanks for participating!
