Blog Hop Party - my GIVEAWAY!

Beat the Winter Blues - Quilters' Blog Hop Party
My giveaway runs from 8th to 14th March 2013.
The Quilting Gallery is hosting the 'Beat the Winter Blues' Blog Hop with Giveaways and I am happy to be participating once again!

This is such a fun way to find and visit new blogs and meet new sewing-minded people -- AND  have a chance at winning something which will help to beat those terrible winter blues!

A BIG thank you for stopping in!  If this is your first time here, please do come back soon and have a little look around!  I love making all sorts of things, especially fast projects that I can complete and feel a sense of accomplishment!  I am participating in several bees and a few swaps as it is a brilliant way to try new techniques and use fabrics that I normally wouldn't have.  Plus, I get to meet lots of neat people along the way too!  Here are a few of my favourite 'makes', though some are still works-in-progress!


My giveaway:
One lucky person will win a frame purse that I made a little while ago and it will be FILLED with scraps.  We all love scraps, right!? 

Check out the gingham lining - so happy and fun!

I love scraps (especially someone else's!!) and I figure that lots of other people do too.  Hopefully the winner will like the selection I send as I have tried to include all sorts of colours.  I reckon that these scraps can be used towards a ticker tape quilt, a string quilt or even a scrap vomit quilt (I will be sure to send some 'pretty' and some 'pretty ugly' fabrics for you to enjoy!).  Scraps are fab - you can add them in to so many different projects!     


How to enter:
-Please leave a comment (any comment) on this post and be sure you have a way for me to contact you!
-If you are a follower (new or old), tell me so in your second comment! 
-This giveaway is open internationally!
-Entries close on 14th March and a winner will be chosen by RNG or similar, emailed and announced soon after.

Thank you for stopping by!  My apologies that on this occasion I will not be able to reply to comments but I wish you luck just the same!  Be sure to check out all the other blogs and their giveaways too - there are 150+ apparently!!  Happy blog-hopping!
