GiveAway Day!!


This GiveAway is now closed, thanks to everyone who entered!!

WooHoo!! Happy 10th GiveAway Day!! 
3 Cheers to Sew Mama Sew for organising such a fun event.


I can never just pick 1 winner so I've got 2 giveaways on offer.

The First one is this bundle of text prints. Lots of fun wordy fabric to spruce up your projects. 

I'm loving this fabric called The Lucky Country by Veritas Designs featuring names of Australian cities, towns and places.
 It even has the Blue Mountains on it. 


The second prize is a lot more colourful! 

This book is such a joy to flip through.  As the title suggests it's full of all sorts of fun, pretty projects for the home. 


You'll want to make every project ...

Okay , here's what you have to do to win one of these  great prizes. 

Answer this simple question...

If you were going to a fabulous fancy dress ball who or what would you go dressed as? 

Of course if you're a super duper follower you can have a second entry.

I'm happy to ship anywhere in the universe. 
The winners will be picked randomly on May 10th at 5pm PST ( or the equivalent in Aussie time) 

Normally I would to reply to comments but it's going to be a busy week of getting around to giveaways so I'll say a big Thank You now for visiting my blog and taking part in the fun. 
Good Luck!  


This Giveaway is now closed - thank you to everyone who entered - and for all your wonderful comments!!
 The winner of the Text Fabric Bundle is JLVerde
And the Happy Home book goes to Lil'Monkeys Mama.

Melody said...

I would go as Hit Girl from Kick Ass. I already sing her theme music to scare John if he has been bad.

Sooli said...

Hmmm fancy dress costume? Something glamorous and swishy, maybe something like one of those enormous frocks in Gone With The Wind (also good to disguise my large derriere!).

Sooli said...

Love that text fabric - wonderful. I'm thrown for a complete loop on the fancy ball question. I think Calamity Jane, since I'd be far more comfortable in men's style Old West clothing (ooh fringed leather jacket) than I would in a fancy ball gown. Thanks for the giveaway! (and if you draw my name on the book you can draw again...)

kbzelazny said...

Capt Janeway from Star Trek-yes I'm a geek. I love the texty fabric!!

Amanda ~ A Crafty Fox said...

Anorina (Samelias Mum) said...

Love that text fabric! Does Wollongong rate a mention?

I'd go dressed as Carmen Miranda. I've liked the idea of balancing a bowl of fruit on my head :)

Hmm, I haven't given that any thought! I love long skirts, but no hoops! Perhaps something from around the Victorian era (provided I could breathe in the corset), one of those exquisite dresses I've gasped over in museum displays, full of tucks and fancy details that are simply stunning! It would be a treat to wear such a dress.

There is a commercial for a new perfume. It looks like people are dressed up and are like puppets on a string. She is dressed up in white and I seem to think this could be Julia Roberts.
