May Giveaway Day at Sew, Mama, Sew

***Giveaway is now closed***

It's May Giveaway Day over at Sew, Mama, Sew! Make sure you head over & check out all the other giveaways.


If you're stopping over from Sew, Mama, Sew, feel free to take a look around & think about joining in on the next round of the Amy Butler Style Stitches Sew Along. Come to think of it, this month's pattern (the Perfectly Pleated Clutch) is so quick & easy, you could probably jump in this month if you'd like.

For Giveaway Day, I'm giving you all a chance to win this Keyka Lou Lots of Pockets tote. It's one of my favorite Keyka Lou patterns, and one of my favorite fabrics.

I've also got a matching wallet for the winner.

You don't have to be a follower to win, but why would you not want to be? We have fun around here. :)

For entries, I'm going to mix things up a bit - we're going to play a little game of "Would you rather...?" Each person must answer the question from the comment before them, and ask the next question. You may answer & enter as many times as you like, except you cannot answer your own questions, so you've got to wait for someone else to ask a question.

Comments have gone to a second page, so please make sure you click the "newest" link to make sure you're answering the most recent question! :)

I'll kick things off with the first question - For gifts at the holidays, would you rather recieve a store-bought gift, a handmade gift, cash, or a gift card?

Entries are open until midnight, Wednesday, May 25. I'll announce the winner Thursday, May 26. Please make sure you either leave your e-mail in your comment, or have your e-mail on your profile. International entries are welcome. Winner will be chosen at random by random.org.

Until next time...

    Is it worth it to eat dessert if it's not chocolate?

    ReplyDelete
  6. It is TOTALLY worth it to eat a dessert if its not chocolate... hello, its called CHEESECAKE my friend haha.

    Q: Would you rather hot or cold climate?

    ReplyDelete
  8. I prefer luke-warm ;-) ... hrm, if I had to choose tho, I guess I would say hot. I need to be out of doors as much as possible. But I have a 100lb newfoundland mix so he would probably choose a colder climate :)

    Cat or dog? Which is better? :)

    ReplyDelete
  9. Cats, of course! They take care of themselves - dogs you have to pay attention to.....

    Q:which do you prefer, sewing or crafting?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Sewing, for me!

  15. I would rather a plane ride, but driving always makes more sense to me because I have a lot of baggage...

    Would you rather live some place that is hot and humid all the time or some place where the weather changes every 5 minutes?

    Mary

    ReplyDelete
  16. Love your original idea for commenting but love the bags you're offering even more!!

    Oooh it would have to be changing every 5 minutes - I couldn't bear hot and humid all the time - ok for a while but could get boring.

    What is your favourite crafty thing to do?

    Teresa x

    ReplyDelete
  17. Quilting, duh! LOL

    Mary
    http://www.quiltgenius.com

    ReplyDelete
  18. Life without cheese is not worth living, so sick, definitely, LOL.

    Would you rather be a stick thin supermodel or a voluptuous quilter? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  20. hmmm...I don't know. I would never want to be stick thin and I do love quilting...and since I am "voluptuous", I guess that answers that. LOL

    Would you rather have fun with your money now and worry about retirement when it gets here or save every penny and never have any fun while you are young enough to have fun?

    Mary
    http://www.quiltgenius.com

    ReplyDelete
  21. tricky!! I certainly want to be taken care of in retirement, but want to enjoy life now!!

    Would you rather cook dinner yourself or eat out??

    ReplyDelete
  22. EAT OUT! i am absolutely useless in the kitchen!

    would you rather go on vacation to a place you've been before and loved or would you rather go some place new and take the risk of having a so-so time?

    ReplyDelete
  23. oh, goodness. we love going back to some of our favorites . . . but if i were going on vacation this week, i'd go someplace new - with my hubby and kids, we'd have fun no matter what! we once went on a 10-day camping trip and it rained 9 of those days . . . we still had fun! we just love being together!

    what's your favorite way to exercise? (conventional or not!)

    ReplyDelete
  24. That's a tough one- I am part creature-of-habit and part adventurer! I think I would opt for somewhere new without kids, or somewhere I know with kids.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'd rather stay up late :)

    Would you rather spend money on fabric or money on new shoes?

    ReplyDelete
  28. both isn't an option? probably fabric--the sense of pride from making something far outweighs the joy of new shoes or me.

    would you rather someone notice you made something (and comment on it) or have everyone think it is store bought?

    ReplyDelete
  29. I would love for people to think it is store bought, but then I would def. tell them it was made by me to get the recognition.

  137. I'd rather stay at home with kids (that I don't have yet) and struggle to make ends meet but I'd hope that I never have to decide between those two!

    Would you rather have the love of your life long distance or the one you settled for right there?

  138. stay home and struggle, doesn't that sound crazy?

    this game is fun!

    would you rather keep the house you have or buy/build another one?

    ReplyDelete

    Would you rather travel around your own country or visit another one?

    ReplyDelete
  142. I've definitely done both, and I love both for different reasons. This country is huge and has so many different regions that are each special and individual and so interesting to explore (I've visited 41 of the nifty 50!) and yet traveling the world makes me realize what a small world it is! :) It's always neat to experience other cultures. So I'm going to have to say travel abroad.
