oh goody it's GIVEAWAY day!

***GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED***

I'm joining in with the wonderfulness that is the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day.

As I'm currently nearly eight months pregnant and trying to get as many of my own projects done before the little one arrives I haven't made anything to giveaway but am resorting to sharing some of my stash (I will be sharing more giveaways very soon too!).

I decided to pick some quite eclectic fabrics to share today, some of which are my favourites and I have used them all in various sewing projects:


My Blogger's BOM quilt, which is still under construction





Camera Case - I also made a camera strap with the lining fabric



Adore my Infinity scarf!
Pattern by Rebecca and available here


On to the actual giveaway then...


These lovelies could be yours!

From left to right:
Violet (roses print), from Weekends by Erin McMorris - over a FQ (has been cut into slightly)
Unknown but lovely retro print fabric - just less than a FQ
Spotted in the Crowd, from Field Study by Anna Maria Horner - a FQ
Marqueterie, from Indie by Pat Bravo - a FQ



So what do you have to do to win?

Sorry THE GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED

Last time I asked what made you smile today and I really loved reading the responses so I'm sticking with that.

*leave one comment telling me what is making you smile today!

*If you are following my blog or become a new follower (by RSS, email or GFC) leave a separate comment telling me so for another chance to win.

Fair warning because nothing annoys me more...

if I can't get in touch with you then you can't win. Please be sure I can by leaving your email in the comments!

I will post internationally and the giveaway will end on Friday 7th December.
I usually respond to comments, during giveaways it's too much though and I won't be able to but I will certainly be reading every single one!


Good luck and be sure to check out the other fabulous giveaways at Sew Mama Sew
