Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day

I love these giveaway days at Sew Mama Sew that are usually hosted twice a year; I've been a participant from both sides, giveaway and trying to win!  There's like this frenzy similar to that of Christmas morning excitement in QBL!
http://www.sewmamasew.com/2016/12/giveaway-day-sewing-craft-supplies-fabric-patterns-etc-4/

I have three lovely giveaways for you today, but first I hope you stay a bit and snoop around, have a look at the tabs at the top of the page and see that yup the main priority here is quilting, in all stages of the process, with tips, several tutorials, delicious favourite recipes or books from time to time, and once a month, a Yin yoga pose that can help ease aching muscles and promote good health.  Basically it's a bit about my life.

I started this blog just over three years ago as mainly a way to record my work, my thoughts, and to keep in touch with friends and family.  Little did I know the wealth of friends it would bring me, friends who I consider friends of the heart, some of whom I've met and some yet TO meet...  I love and always have loved writing, and it gives me that outlet as well.  So without further ado, let's get on with it, shall we?  (Not only my mum's English voice is often in my head, but of late it is the Queen's, since I am happily immersed in "The Crown" on Netflix at the moment - and I'm choosing it over Season 1 episodes of "Gilmore Girls" - gasp! - when I do sit down, which isn't often, to watch TV.)  But I digress.

The first giveaway is something I've planned for a couple of months.  It actually is one of my goals on my Q4FAL list, to make a second small giveaway prize with Windfall fabric.  I'd hoped to have it as a my second freebie in the Autumn Abundance blog hop I was a part of in October, but the making of the big quilt, Windfall
Here is Bella, classy cat that she is, lolling about on some of the gorgeous Windfall fabric from Paintbrush Studio used in this mini mini.  Beside the fabric is a pair of my husband's shorts waiting to have a button sewn on...mending or creating? I know what I'd choose, and she does too!😽

and some life drama (selling and moving house, wait, no house to go to, so make that moving into storage) meant I had no time to make that second freebie.  It evolved from original plan, and you will understand why, given that it is now December:
I love it posing in the branches of our friend John's Christmas tree, now freed from the pot!  Here's a sunny shot so you can see it better:
This mini finished at 4 1/4" square and is quilted with Sulky threads: a red, gold and green metallic and a white rayon.  The squares finish at 1/2".
Several times over the course of making this micro-mini or mini mini, I had a heart-grabbing, 'No! I want to KEEP it!' feeling.  Stay strong Sandra.  Those are the best gifts to give, those you want to keep for yourself, right?

Here is the back:
In the hibiscus plant!  Wait, you thought I was Canadian? I am! But we are fortunate enough to spend  a few months in warm, sunny southwest Florida.  This mini can be used as a coaster, a mini mini to go with your collection of them right, or as a Christmas tree ornament by simply putting a hanging thread on it.

The second giveaway is a $10 gift certificate to Pile o' Fabric.  Alyssa ships fast and has excellent customer service.  I have followed Alyssa for quite some time; hers was one of the first blogs I was attracted to when I first found QBL about 4 years ago.  Just last week I decided to check out her sale (getting updates by email is great but also dangerous...) and I was very pleased to find some Avant Garde by Katarina Roccella! 

Several other hunks (and I mean that in the "gorgeous" way as well as in the "piece of" way LOL) found their way into keeping company with Avant Garde.  She saved me a little moola on postage (so sweet) and so I'd like to give back by sending her perhaps a new customer or three, wink!  Supporting the smaller shops is very important.

None of these were more than $6/yard!  Art Gallery, Windham Fabrics, oh and did I mention she has a wonderful selection of Kona solids?  Although $10 isn't much, it should easily get you a couple yards of fabric.  Alyssa mentioned that she just might throw in a fat quarter or two into the lucky winner's cart!

The third prize is a copy of my pattern in my Craftsy shop, (affiliate link), Blue Skies & Sunny Days.
Ahh, hanging in the branches of my friend's Japanese Weeping Cherry tree, mmm!  Both quilts are for sale in my Etsy shop.
All right, all that to say you have a chance to win three items.  You don't get to pick, sorry.  ;-) I will ship internationally so anyone on this blue and green planet can enter.  How do you enter?

Leave me a comment telling me your favourite Christmas ornament on your tree. Note, you must answer the question in order to qualify!

Followers of mine can get a second entry; just tell me how you follow me.

**If you are a no-reply blogger, please leave your email in your comment box (not a separate box, that's cheating!) so I can find you; otherwise I will draw another name.

The giveaway is open until Sunday, Dec. 11 and I will announce the winners on Monday, Dec. 12.  I always reply to every comment but during a giveaway I will not be able to  due to volume.

Good luck and happy hopping to all the blogs!  How do you find all the blogs with giveaways? Click this link, or the button at the top of the post or the Sew Mama Sew link in the first sentence. 😀

It's a wonderful day today too because Angela Walters' first episode of the Midnight Quilt Show was uploaded about an hour ago!!  I watched it already and downloaded the pattern, which is terrific, but even more TERRIFIC is her quilting on the quilt (like of course, duh) and also terrific is just HER.  Love that girl.  But you knew that if you've read this blog any amount of time!

  1. I'll go first!!! It's a hard one since EVERY ornament on our tree is special... We get one every year to represent the most important event, new family member, trip, etc. from the year. But, I'll pick... "Our first Christmas together, 1985" since that started the tradition.

  2. A few years ago my daughter and I made wool felt ornaments and our favourites of those were the moose and bear... they are just so darn cute and we have a cherished memory.

  5. My favourite ornament is an angel, our younger daughter made her when she was back living with us and working closer to home, A little frail now, and always on a tilt, her face a ping-pong ball with eyes and lips outlined in pen, either blue or red according to what they needed to be, wings that have over the years become a bit tatty, but she is still " our angel".

  14. I just sent my daughters beautiful collectors ornaments off to her so she can decorate her own tree. (sniff, sniff) I am left with the ornaments from when the girls were all small and the ornaments needed to be very sturdy or stuffed. That being said, my favorite ornament that I have still is a goofy looking stuffed reindeer ornament. He has the best look on his face, which is why I bought him in the first place. He makes me smile every time I look at him!

  18. Hi Sandra!
    I don't have a Christmas tree because I'm Jewish, but I do own one Christmas ornament and it's my favorite! It's a beautiful glass pug (Christopher Radko style) that my friend Eleanor bought me. She also gave me a beautiful stand, so it is on display all year in my office cubicle.
    I'm a devoted follower. You are on my blog roll and I also follow you on Blogger to make sure I don't miss a single post!
    Pugs and kisses to you, McGiver, Naala, Rocco, and Bella!

  38. I actually have four favorite ornaments on my tree right now. Each grandchild's birth ornament. I bought special ornaments for each child and grandchild when they were born. When they marry and move into their own home-that is their first ornament on their first tree. My oldest granddaughter is getting married next year and will get her ornament then.

  39. Sandra you are so sweet and funny! Very cute mini quilt too and I can't blame you for wanting to keep it.

  41. I still have ornaments that my younger sister and I made probably 40 years ago. She has since passed and I can't seem to throw them away, although they are falling apart. They are in their own box with the the other decorations, and I look at them, reminisce, and put them back in the box as I decorate. People think fancy cars, etc are the treasures, but it is the little things that might not seem that important at the time, that are the real treasures. As long as you can remember them, you will be rich! ndfromsd(at)gmail(dot)com

  42. Three wonderful prizes, my dear friend. You have one of the biggest hearts of anyone I know. Umm...if I win can I have the diva cat or possibly the handsome dog? Are those choices? I know you said I can't pick, but you know I had to ask. Bella is in the picture. Oh, yes and the question...hmmm. Favorite ornament. We have a set of handmade ornaments made by my grandma, that have pictures of family members in them. I think the one of my dad is my favorite, lets me know he's still around even though I can't see him.

  45. Years ago when my husband and I graduated from college and moved to the Washington DC area for jobs, I asked my mom and his mom to send us each an ornament from their tree. My mom sent me my favorite faceted ball--I loved that one and fought my brother for the privilege of hanging it; I've since found similar ones at the dollar store. My husband's mom sent a metal Santa Claus. I remember watching as my husband unwrapped it and wept. We spent that Christmas apart from family but still felt close to them. We hang those ornaments each year and tell the kids about the three Christmases that we spent away from family.

  97. Beautiful giveaway gifts! Thanks for giving me a chance to win!

    My favorite handmade ornament is the cinnamon heart that our son made with his Friday Group friends when he was three years old (1990). The recipe included apple sauce and cinnamon as I recall. It took a long time to dry out enough so we could hang it on the tree, but I put it up every year.

    My favorite store bought ones were purchased a few years later. They are a silver and a gold star. I taught him the song I had learned in Girl Scouts "make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver and the other gold' and we would sing that and talk about friends when putting it up on the tree.

  98. Hmmm.... this better work. I hate typing things out (putting thoughts to paper, in this case computer screens) and then realizing I've missed a step and losing everything! I only recently found out about your page after failed attempts at "fb" ;0). Now you are in my favourites and I just check in every few days! All my ornaments are glass with personal pictures stuffed in of family and friends so I don't know that I could pick just one! I do have an audio one of my daughter when she was a baby saying "momma" probably that one. I do hope it is never recorded over!

  102. My favorite ornament on my tree is very old. It's a peach, (yes, the fruit) holding a hymnal and wearing a gold pipe cleaner halo. Sounds strange, but it was always on our tree when I was growing up. Several years ago, my mom was going to throw away (!!!) some old ornaments and I was lucky enough to save this gem. It's been my treasure ever since!

  122. My favorite ornament on our tree is the ceramic baby Jesus that we always put in the upper center so it is in full view.
