Sew Mama Sew Giveaway: Episode Gift Certificate

Welcome!

Here's me, in a nutshell:

I'm a homeschooling mom of five awesome kids. I love to make bags and dresses and most of all quilts. I've started designing my own patterns, and here are my first four:


I've begun a Maxi Quilt Revolution (not a mini quilt gal all the time), and I've maxi-fied my patterns to make some big blocks (30-36" big!) and big quilts:

But you're here for the giveaway! 

I'm doing two: one for patterns and one for a $25 Etsy Gift Certificate. This page is the Etsy giveaway.


All you need to do to win is leave a comment telling me what you're working on now. Me? I'm Santa's sweatshop! I've got lots of gifts to finish before December 24th! Be sure to come back next week for the Santa's Sweatshop Linky Party - I've got some great sponsors lined up (including $50 at the FQS!!!).

Giveaway ends Friday, December 12 at 6ish MST. It is open internationally. You can't win if you are a no-reply blogger, so please leave an e-mail address if you're not sure.

Good luck. And enter the pattern giveaway over here. Have fun and keep browsing all these great giveaways.
