Giveaway Day!

.: Giveaway now CLOSED :.
Congratulations to the winner - Cath! I have emailed you :)


Yay it’s giveaway day! So fun – so many blogs to visit – so many giveaways to enter! So thanks for stopping by here!
giveawaydaydec8
Let’s keep it short and sweet as there’s plenty to see and do during Giveaway Day.
Short: I’m Kristy and I love to paper piece. That is all.

Okay maybe a little longer – I do love to foundation piece and I also design paper pieced patterns – you can find them in my Craftsy shop (see the Craftlet on the right for a quick look at my patterns). I have a BoM coming up next year which I’m a bit excited about. I will be announcing more about that later.

I’m also one third of the Make Modern team – a new digital modern quilting magazine which we’re very passionate about! We also have a fab giveaway over on the MM blog you might like to check out too.

Now for the sweet. Up for grabs for giveaway day is this sweet charm pack of Odds and Ends by Cosmo Cricket. There are some seriously cute text prints in this charm pack and the lovely subdued colours we all love from Cosmo Cricket.
