Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day




The giveaways keep on coming here! Today I am participating in the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day.




 




I am giving away a half metre roll of a variety of blue 2 1/2 inch strips and a stitchery pattern. To enter, please let me know one of your favourite literary characters, or book. One of my favourites is Nancy Drew. I think of her as strong, kind and who with the help of her friends can accomplish anything and solve most mysteries. Her personality reminds me of a lot of quilters! I must be able to contact you, so if you are a no-reply blogger you will not be able to win. The giveaway will remain open until December 16 at 8:00 PM EST. Winner will be chosen randomly.
