Sew Mama Sew Giveaway

Welcome to my little corner of blog land.

I put together some of my favorite projects for those who are new here.  Me in a quilty nutshell.

My finished string quilt top - will be quilting this soon.
Indian Summer Quilt
Victory Garden quilt
Red and Aqua Chimneys and Cornerstones quilt
Red and Aqua Matchbox quilt
My Sunkissed granny squares - quilting this one in July
Okay, on to the giveaway.

Here's how it works.

In order to win, you must do the following:

Blog about my giveaway, but you have to type the blogpost whilst standing upside down.

And you must have photographic proof.

And then you have to promise to religiously read my blog posts, even the boring ones where I blather endlessly about my current fabric and pastry obsessions, teething babies, law school husbands and potty training.

Okay, not really.

 But I would like you to leave me a comment. Tell me your favorite something: book, cake, movie, workout video, color, perfume, musical, vacation spot, baby name, bird, TV show, whatever. But if you skip over these instructions and just leave me a comment and there isn’t something “favorite-y” in there, you are disqualified. Because I’m in charge.

And here are my favorites. Are we kindred spirits?
Book: Pride and Prejudice
Cake: Coconut cake (I have the world's greatest recipe!). Oh, and yellow cake with chocolate icing
Movie: Chocolat (my first date with my husband)
workout video: Jillian Michaels' Ab workout is killing me these days
Color: Yellow
Perfume: Poeme by Lancome
Musical: Anything Fred and Ginger
Vacation spot: Seattle (that's the one that will happen sooner rather than later - used to live there so I know all the great things to do and the best places to eat)
Baby name: the one I wanted to use and didn't get to: Megan
Bird: Osprey
TV show: Downton Abbey

 I think we'll have three winners. Three different charm packs: Summersville California Girl and Vintage Modern. And I'll most likely throw in some other fun things.


The technicalities:
  • I will not ship internationally this year. Sorry!
  • The giveaway will stay open until 25 May at 5 p.m. PST (give or take)
  • I'll draw the winners Friday night and notify you by e-mail. Check and make for absolute sure you aren't a "no reply" blogger. If I can't reach you, you miss out.
  • One entry only. I'll be checking.

You do not have to follow my blog. Can I tell you how much I dislike this requirement? Follow because you like me, not because you want an extra shot at my giveaway. Do you know how many times I've followed a blog, just for a giveaway, and then stopped following because I wasn't really interested in the blog? Yeah, too many to count.



Have a great time visiting all the blogs.

  91. Okay, first, I LOVE LOVE LOVE that victory garden quilt! That was enough to make me follow. Secondly, I named my 3rd son Ransom. Love that name, and so does he. And thirdly, several of the other SMS giveaways have asked for my FAVORITE (lol) summer meal, so I'll give you that one as my fave.

    1 package Tyson already cooked Pork Roast with au jus (in meat section).
    1 can Black Beans in seasoned sauce, un-drained.
    2 Tbsp. Goya Sofrito (spanish tomato sauce, sold in the Hispanic foods section)
    1 package Egg Noodles

    Heat pork in microwave as directed on package, use 2 forks to shred meat and au jus in a mixing bowl. Stir in beans and Sofrito. Serve over cooked egg noodles. (I also add a chopped sauteed onion). My family loves this and it literally takes less than 15 minutes to make, start to finish! I double it to feed the 9 of us, and we have a little left over. Oh, forgot the cost. It only costs about $9 to make!
