It's That Time Again -- SMS Giveaway Day!!

I love Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day (twice a year).  This will be the second Giveaway Day that I participate in --it's just so exciting.  For those of you unfamilar --

 "We coordinate one day when everyone with a shop or blog can give something away. We create a master list, and we leave the lists up for several days so readers can take their time visiting the hundreds of participating blogs and shops. We also provide some structure with categories and international shipping info. Giveaway Days have been a lot of fun for everyone involved!"  SMS


Now for my little giveaway--
  • Two FQ from vintage sheets.
  •  Quilt Blocks (6 in all) for you to use for pillows or a wall hanging.  The printed area is 6" x 6" with a bit of fabric for piecing.
  •  One yard of a heavier weight birdhouse fabric -- perfect for a bag:)
  • One pack of  7/8 "buttons to cover
  • One and a half yards of crochet lace
I don't have fancy items--but I hope you like them.  All are welcome to enter;  I will ship internationally:)

                                   






  1. To win leave a comment --tell me your favorite craft or quilting blog. 
  2. For a second chance become a follower of  "Just One More Thing."

Make sure you check out the awesome giveaway at Flamingo Toes -- if you like jewelry and fabric, this is the one for you.
