my first ever giveaway!

Well yes this is my first time doing a giveaway so be gentle with me please!  I am not really obsessed with how many followers my blog has and am always so glad to know that even one person reads what I ramble on about!  I would rather have one person following who actually reads my blog than 1000 who just put their name there.   But I did have the number 100 in my head for the total of followers before I ran a giveaway.

But I just can't wait any longer.  I wanted to give something special away.  Something that is my style and useful too. Something that is me!  I am truly honoured to be part of this wonderful online quilting community.  I value every comment I receive.
*******giveaway now closed! Results this evening*********

So here are the giveaway items!

First up is a 14.5 x 14.5 inch handquilted patchwork cushion/pillow cover made by me!  The insert won't be posted, just the cover.  The fabrics are all from the Happy Go Lucky line by Bonnie and Camille for Moda fabrics.  I handquilted a cross hatch design in cotton perle orange and yellow threads.   The cushion has an envelope closure at the back.


Next up is a little needlecase book which is very useful for your needles and pins.  It is made with gorgeous fabric by Heather Bailey and lined with her fabric too.  There are little felt pages for your pins etc.  I adore the colours in this case.  

And finally there is some fabric too!  I have chosen some of my faves and they are all very useable size pieces.  The smallest is 5 x 5 and largest is a fat eighth ( 9 x 18 inches or thereabouts).  There is a little bit of everything and I hope that it can be useful to someone.  (The little trains are an Echino linen mix).


So how do I enter you ask?

Well you need to be a follower of my blog ( or become one)  and leave a comment - that is all!

Nice and simple!  I don't like giveaways with lots of crazy conditions. ;)

The giveaway is open until Friday 28th February 12 noon and I will use the random number thingy to pick a lovely winner.  One winner will win all three prizes!Now closed.

Open to all and if you are a no reply blogger thingy then you must leave an e-mail address so I can contact you!

I think those are all the rules and I hope you have had as much fun following my blog as I have writing it!
