100th post GIVEAWAY :)

GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED

Hey everyone, I'm thrilled today ... it's the first anniversary of my first blog post and my 100th post so I just have to mark the occasion with my first giveaway!

I'll be honest, I really wasn't sure about this blogging malarkey when I first dipped my toe in and, when it took so long in the beginning just to write a post and upload photos (cos I did not have  a scooby what I was doing!), I nearly threw in the towel. I'm so glad I didn't. I know everyone says it but I really have 'met' some of the nicest people through blogging - what a generous, diverse, supportive and fun bunch we are, hey?!

So here goes, this is what I'm giving away today:

1) 7 co-ordinating 100% cotton fat quarters (50x56cm) 



2) 6 red/pinks 100% cotton fat quarters (50x75cm) from the Victoria and Albert Museum quilting exhibition held here in London in 2010 





3) A 'Clover' fusible bias tape maker (12mm/1/2")

4) Dotty garden gloves (I have them in pink - of course - and they double up as great quilting gloves)



5) If that wasn't enough for you, I'm also going to make you a 'Pants Bag' in your favourite colour! Just check out my '2012 collection' (gosh, I love 'bigging myself up' with my delusions of grandeur!) and you'll see the 34 I made last year! 

How to enter my giveaway:

1. Leave a comment letting me know your favourite colour for a Pants Bag

2. Leave a second comment for another entry to win if you are one of my followers or become one (this is entirely optional)

3. Pre-giveaway followers only - leave a third comment just to say hello to be entered again

This giveaway is open to everyone and the winner will be chosen by Random.org



Giveaway will be open for one week only so that I can make your Pants Bag and get to the post office before I go off for a week's skiing in France!

Giveaway closes on Friday 11th January at 8pm CET
Winner will be announced before I get on the  
'plane ... Promise! 


GOOD LUCK! and a Happy 2013 :)

  11. Congratulations on your 100th post! I've seen some of the Victoria and Albert fabrics here in the States recently and bought a lovely soft green piece to use in a wedding quilt for our son. Postage is probably too dear to send something this far, but I wanted to send best wishes.
