Daydreaming about Giveaway Day

:: GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED - thanks everyone for entering! The winner is Abbigail! ::

 Don’t we all just look forward to Sew Mama Sew’s Giveaway Day?! Lots of chances at lots of yumminess (fabric and patterns, oh my!), and a great opportunity to find new blogs to read. Can’t get much better than that (unless of course you win something – then that’s a bit awesome).

giveaway_2013_Dec9

So I’m joining in again! I won’t keep you long – I know you have giveaways to enter and blogs to read and witty comments to think up! So briefly – thanks for stopping by!

I’m a bit of a foundation paper piecing fanatic (possible understatement there) and love to share the paper piecing joy. I host a weekly Paper Piecing Party for people to link up and share their current projects and inspire each other, and I also have a paper pieced BoM, Sew Kitschy, starting next year which I am very much looking forward to!

Paper Piecing PartySew Kitschy

So that’s me. Now onto the important stuff – the giveaway!

I have a charm pack of Kate Spain’s new line Daydream to give away! It’s so pretty and vibrant and just gorgeous.

Daydream Charm PackDaydream prints

You can see all the prints in full detail here at Moda. They are seriously gorgeous!
I will post internationally but please note, I may need to open the charm pack to make the parcel sit flat to cut down on postage costs (otherwise $18 postage for a charm pack?! What the hell, Australia Post?!).

As well as some pretty fabric, the winner will also get their choice of 3 patterns from my Craftsy shop. Currently I have 138 patterns listed – so there’s a bit of choice there Winking smile

Visit Quiet Play's Craftsy Pattern Store »
 

So how do you enter? Easy. Simply leave me a comment Anything will do but if you need an idea – let me know what you’d like to see as a paper pieced pattern. I’m always looking for inspiration for more designs!

Followers get a second entry – but you must leave a separate comment telling me you follow.

Here’s a not so subtle hint:
Follow on Bloglovin

And that’s it! The giveaway is open until 5pm PST December 13th (that’s midday December 14th for us Aussies). Please make sure you’re not a no-reply blogger (or leave an email address in your comment if you’re not sure). I likely won’t reply to comments left during the giveaway as it gets a bit overwhelming! Giveaway now closed - thanks for entering!

So! Good luck and happy giveaway day!
