Sew Mama Sew Giveaway


 




Hello Everyone, and welcome to the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway. I am giving away this bundle of fqs as chosen by my son.



To enter, all you need to do is answer this question : If you could go to a different time period or fictional place what would it be? For me, I had a couple of ideas, but after just watching the season finale of Once Upon a Time, I think it would be interesting to be in the world of Cinderella, Snow White, Belle and Little Red Riding Hood. I wonder if we will see Ariel next season?

The winner will be chosen randomly and you must have a way for me to contact you. I will leave the giveaway open until May 25 at 8:00 PM Eastern DST. Good luck with this and the other giveaways at Sew Mama Sew!

Hmm that's a very good question... I think I'd like to visit Anne at Green Gables, have some cordial and have a nice chat.

Oh, I agree with Michele. I'd love to live in Avonlea with Anne

Pams said...

Oooh, great question. I would like to have seen New York City in the early 20th century like in Edith Wharton's novels, just because I think it would be amazing to waltz at a grand party.

christinaree said...
