Yay! It’s the start of Sew Grateful Week, hosted by the lovely Debi!
This is the third annual Sew Grateful Week. If you haven’t come across it before, the idea is over the week we show how grateful we are for the online sewing community through hosting giveaways, reflecting on what we’re grateful for/about, sharing tutorials and patterns, and making projects using things provided by others (such as giveaway wins, online tutorials, etc). It’s so much fun!
I love having this chance to show how much I appreciate the online sewing community. Seriously, you guys are just awesome! I’ve made so many lovely new friends, learnt a lot, gotten lots of opportunities to indulge in sewing-and-craft related discussions, and even won a few things (which always totally blows me away!). I still find it a bit hard to believe that people actually read this little blog of mine – it started as a way for me to keep track of what I make, and now, it has followers! Who comment on it!! Seriously, it’s pretty darn amazing! I get a little *zing* of happiness every time I get a comment. 😀
So, thanks Debi for once again hosting such an awesome event!
And since today is Sew Grateful Week giveaway day, here’s a little giveaway to show my appreciation for you all and your awesomeness.
I thought I’d give away a few of my favourite things.
Firstly, chocolate. Because, well, chocolate! (Do I really need to say why?!?) This one is a New Zealand brand, Manuka honey flavour. Very tasty, or at least I think it is! (I may have to buy another block for the giveaway, I’m not sure this one will last past this evening. Willpower and chocolate – pick one only. *sigh*)
Next up, a tea towel. Not just any tea towel though – this one is a repro 1940’s Kiwiana print. In red! (Retro Kiwiana, 1940s and red – all Very Good Things.) It’s repro rather than vintage, so it’s safe to use for it’s intended purpose, or whatever else you feel like doing with it. (Such as turning it into a picnic blanket, perhaps.) (The shadows aren’t included though.)
For the third part of the prize, you get to choose one of the following:
Option A: Simplicity 6336, a skirt pattern from 1965. Waist 34″, hip 44″.
Option B: Butterick 3445, a cute dress from the 1960s. Size 16 1/2 (half-size). Bust 37″.
Option C: neither of those patterns appeal? Option C is a soft toy, made in your favourite colours. You even get to choose which type of soft toy – have a look on the Pieces of Us Project blog (or just pick a type from the collage below) and let me know which one you’d like to get. A bunny girl? A cat? A rabbit? A bug? A house?
Want to enter? I’m happy to send this anywhere in the world, so everyone is eligable! Just leave a comment below and let me know which you’d choose – option A, B or C. (Please make sure I have a way to contact you – if your email address isn’t linked up to your profile, leave it in your comment in the format name (at) whatever (dot) com.)
I’ll close the competition off next Tuesday (12 Feb) and announce the winner here next Wednesday.
