Give Away Day Winner

Before I announce the winner of my Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day prize I have to thank everyone so much for visiting and leaving such wonderful comments about your favourite crafting/sewing accessories.

Rulers. needles, super scissors, fabulous lights, Accuquilt cutters, computers/iPod, chocolate were all mentioned... 3 cheers for all those things!!

A lot of you said an unpicker or seam ripper. I totally agree!! I always say I feel as though I unpick more than I sew!! The catch is I could never seem to find one when I was in the middle of a sewing crisis so I went out and bought 5. They are now placed in strategic positions all over my sewing room.

Another popular favourite is the Rotary Cutter. I have to admit I've taken mine for granted. They've been around for all the time I've quilted so I guess I don't really know what it would be like to cut every single thing out with scissors. You all opened my eyes and I promise I'll be more appreciative of my Rotary Cutter in future.

Okay, this might be cheating because it's not specifically a sewing tool but My most favourite, favourite accessory at the moment is our robot vacuum cleaner!! We call him Walter because he vacuums from wall to wall. He happily cleans our floors twice a week while we're at work and for me it means precious Extra Sewing Time!!! He's such a Neato little guy!!
So finally... Who is the winner? It wasn't really me who chose, I left it up to Mr Random Number Selector , I could never choose out of all the wonderful comments, okay...Drum roll...

... It's Deb from Works in Progress. She's a crafty, quilting, thrifty blogger from New Zealand. I'm sure she'll have fun sewing Queen of the May blocks.

I couldn't resist whipping up a Christmassy Queen Of May. If you want to have a go at making some you'll find the templates on the Material Obsession website.

Thanks again to Sew Mama Sew for hosting Give Away Day!!

Time to go and sew now!!

Give Away Day Winner


  1. Congratulations Deb...and thank you Rachael for hosting this giveaway...

    OMG I NEED one of those robots...didn't know they existed!

  2. Congratulations Deb I'm sure you will create up a store with your new templates! I think I need one of those robot cleaners as well....would the cat be safe? ;-)

  3. Congrats Deb! I just may need to treat myself to a set of Queen Of May templates. You have made this block so appealing!!! And the robot vacuum is brilliant...does he do hard wood floors? Maybe windows??? hee hee

  4. Congratulations Deb, that is a wonderful prize.
    I have a couple of unpickers, just in case!
    I could do with a Walter too, he would be very welcome here!

  5. Miss Rachael Daisy!
    You are way too cool. Very organized!
    I love that block you made. I have always liked the circle blocks. I have got to look into buying those templates in future.

  6. I was holding my breath in anticipation......sigh......lucky, lucky Deb!
    It was a great give away, thanks for holding it Rachael, and wishing you a very merry Christmas!

  7. Congratulations to Deb. I love the red and green block. Are you hand piecing these?
    I think I need a robot but worried that I may have too much furniture for it to get around.

  8. Congats Deb! And thanks to this giveaway, I spend a good chunk of a 3 hour work meeting the other day trying to work out if I could use this block for a particular project lol (Alas, the constituent parts are a bit small for the fabric print I'm trying to feature, but I'd still love to give it a go eventually)

  9. Congratulations to Deb! A great treat for Christmas.

    Walter is quite the guy, cleaning up while you're away and giving you just a little more time to spend in the sewing room.

  10. Congratulations, Deb! What a great give away!
