May Giveaway

It's May Giveaway time! Let me hear a "Woooooo Hooooo"!

Sew, Mama, Sew! are once again organising the MASSIVE May giveaway extravaganza. This is where hundreds of bloggers sign up to hold giveaways on their blog, all at once! How awesome!!! The master list of who is participating, can be found over on the Sew, Mama, Sew! blog on the 23rd of May.


So what am I giving away? Well, I've gone through my stash and have come up with a few goodies which I hope you will like.

There are 5 prizes in total - which means 5 different winners. Plus a few ways you can enter, so there are more chances of winning.

First prize is this bundle of turquoise & grey loveliness. If you've visited my blog lately, you may have noticed my love affair with fabrics of this colour. Well, I'm going to give away a little bit of that love.


Next up is a charm pack of Symphony by Sentimental Studios for Moda. If you love making hexagon flowers, there are some fantastic prints in this pack... or you can ignore me and just use it for anything you want really. It'll be yours to play with :-)


Next prize I hear you ask? Some fat quarters of Spring Remix fabric designed by Ann Kelle for Robert Kaufman fabrics. Pretty girly colours.


And for prize numbers 4 and 5 - I'll be giving away my quilt pattern 'Fresh Diamonds'. I'll email the PDF file to the winner.


Now... how to get these goodies into your hot little hands? After so many Australian only giveaways lately, this one is open to everyone!!! I will post internationally.

Firstly, you must be a follower of my blog. Why wouldn't you want to be a follower - right?

Leave me a comment - something totally random about yourself (eg you like eating chocolate icecream - but only on days ending in Y).

For another entry, post about my giveaway on your blog, then come back and leave another comment with the link. Help me share the love :-)

If you'd like a couple more entries, follow me on twitter and like my facebook page - the links are up at the top of my blog.

This giveaway closes on 26 May 2011 so you'd better get to it.

For some more great giveaways, go and visit Sew, Mama, Sew! for the master list.

Good Luck!!!
