Give it away!

In an effort to not repeat yesterday's experience (read: here) I have decided to try in every way to make today a happy day. I'm starting with threatening my children with..... just kidding. I woke with a smile and gosh darn it I'm going to keep that smile on my face all day long even if I have to grit my teeth. No, I'm starting with a GIVEAWAY!!!

I haven't had a giveaway in a looooong time and I have all these goodies from market that I just have to share with someone. Do you want them?  :o)


This whole bundle can be yours. Let me break it down for you. 


Three fabulous magazines: Modern Quilts Unlimited, Quilting Quickly from Fons and Porter, and Stitch, Craft, Create Gifts. All three of these magazines are packed full of ideas and inspiration and tons of patterns!


Individual quilt patterns from Swirly Girls, V and Co., and Schlosser Designs


And of course, FABRIC!!! A bundle of 10 fat quarters from Terra Australis by Emma Jean Jansen (LOVE this collection!) with a few Oval Elements from Art Gallery Fabrics thrown in for good measure,
A delicious Chamberry charm pack from Adornit,
And two adorable mini's from Moda including Front Porch from Jan Patek and Sewing Box from Gina Martin

All of this goodness in one bundle- it feels like Christmas!!!

Leave a comment to enter (don't forget to make sure you're a member/follower). 
I'll pick a winner on Friday morning.

For more chances to win check me out on other social media outlets!

HAPPY SEWING!

Mom C said...

I hope the rest of your day went joyously. But I loved the cereal story, so typically kids. One day I went outside to find my kids and some cousins throwing cherries at our neighbors concrete chimney. Because we wanted to was their response. We got hoses and they had to wash them off but even 15 years later I can still see evidence of their misadventure. Luckily we have neighbors with a sense of humor. Love your generous bundle of goodies. Thanks.

I am definitely a follower, a huge fan. Commiserations on your day yesterday but its called yesterday for a reason!!!!

Hope today is a better day for you, but what a wonderful way to start it with such a lovely giveaway! Although a bad day for you equals a giveaway for us, I will wish you only good days!!! Thanks for the chance to win.

VickiT said...

Isn't being a Mom an amazing job? You just never know what tomorrow will bring when you have children. I'm sorry, but I will admit to laughing at the cereal incident. Does that disqualify me from the giveaway now? LOL I kept waiting for the end of the story to come and to see the table as it was when they all left the nest for their day at school.

And yes! As if you need to ask if anyone would like all those awesome goodies? I would be thrilled to win and will even promise to share them with my almost DIL who is living with us right now along with my son and their adorable almost 2 yr old daughter. She's been using my 2nd machine and making super cute dresses for my Granddaughter so I've been helping her learn sewing techniques she's never done before. She would be sharing in my win if I'm the very lucky person who wins all that goodness.
