Giveaway Day!

GIVEAWAY CLOSED 
WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON

Who doesn't love a good giveaway! I'm joining in the fun with Sew Mama Sew and giving away some goodies this week.  Drum roll please....I will be doing not one, but two giveaways! Yay!

For those of you who are new to my lil old blog, let me introduce myself.  My name is Jo and I am a fabricaholic!  I live in England and probably like you, I love making stuff!  I teach sewing to adults and sell home made goodies online and at local markets.  Here are some of my favourite creations.

Top Row: 1. Silver Lining Pillow 2. Cherry Blossoms Quilt
2nd Row: 3. Little Red Quilt  4. Hoo's in the Forest  5. Petite Street
3rd Row: 6. Hidden Squares Pillow  7. Little Red Dolly Quilt
4th Row: 8. Market Apron  9. Blue Birdy Mini Quilt  10. Quirky Glasses Case


So the first giveaway is a small bundle of some really cute Japanese themed fabric.  I spent 3 months living in Japan years ago and totally loved it.  I think this gave me the love of travel and the desire to live in different cultures and countries.


For your chance to win this yummy bundle:
  • Leave a comment telling me where in the world you would love to live and why or what you would make with this fabric! 
  • For an extra chance become a follower and leave another comment telling me you're following!
The giveaway will close at 8pm (UK time) Friday 16th May.

For the second giveaway hop on over here to the next post!
