Good Giveaway Morning To You!

Well, it's Monday, and you know what that means....off to work. But, on the bright side, it's Bloggers Giveaway Day, so throughout the world, there won't be much legitimate work being done today (though there will be lot's of bosses thinking we are all so industrious glued to our monitors, fingers flying across the keyboards (grin).

Since I am the not the luckiest person I have decided to offer 7 (count 'em SEVEN) separate giveaways. After all, 7 is supposed to be a lucky number, and I am going to Vegas in a few months, (and will be buying lottery tickets this week) so maybe this '7' thing will align my chakras, bestow some karma, change my luck. We shall see.

You might recall the pincushions I made a while back. A celebration of my newfound love for batiks combined with my love for shopping:

3 of you will take home these cute little pincushions. They're 5" tall by 2.5" wide. A little smaller than a coffee cup, they'll hold lots of pins, and under the flap is a square of felt to hold your needles.

Yesterday I dropped a hint by showing you my scissor collection. Yep, I'm offering scissor bling...


I'm  giving away 4 one-of-a-kind scissor fobs/scissor leashes, freshly made yesterday, to four of you who need to keep track of your scissors at classes, or who just like to bling out their tools.

Doesn't matter whether you live in Tallahassee or Tasmania, you can be a winner. Just leave me a comment and be sure to check back on Thursday evening when I'll announce the winners, who will be chosen in a random draw of all who comment. Be sure your comment links to your blog, or includes your email address.

Check out my past posts, sometimes I actually succeed in entertaining my readers with my acerbic wit (or so I've been told...actually, chastised for when I become boring and just talk shop). By all means, feel free to critique. If you've got speakers, turn them on and enjoy the tunes. And do check back because I've decided that it's fun to share, so I'll be running monthly giveaways. Obviously not sewing machines or AccuQuilt Gos, but fun little things I've picked up in my travels, and crafty swag I've made.

Good luck in all of the giveaways, if this is your first stop, click on the Giveaway Day link at the left to hop over to SewMamaSews for the links to all the bloggers participatiing. Enjoy your day!

  3. When do you have the time to make all of these cute things along with all the working, gardening, and quilting you do?? I suppose I can't win because I am a relative, but I wanted to post a comment anyway.
