It's Giveaway Day!

Woo-hoo! It's December Giveaway Day over at Sew, Mama, Sew! I had so much fun this spring, I just had to participate again.

I know there are a ton of giveaways to enter, so I'll keep this short & sweet. Enter for your chance to win this sweet little coin purse.

Dec Giveaway Day

Dec Giveaway Day

I do hope you'll come back & take a look around once you've finished entering all the other giveaways. Later this week I'll be sharing a tutorial for this fun quilt block. Update: tutorial is finished & can be found here!

Polaroid block

And this spring we'll be picking up on the Amy Butler Style Stitches Sew Along to finish up the last three patterns in the book. I hope you can join in!

For entries, I really enjoyed the question game from this spring, so I'm going to do the same thing again. 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.

I will be monitoring the comments, so if you don't answer/ask a question, your entry won't count. But it's not a big deal if multiple people post at the same time answering the same question.

You do not need to be a follower to enter, but hey, why not? I think we have fun around here. :)

Comments have gone to a second page - please make sure you click the "newest" link to make sure you're answering the most recent question! Remember to keep this in mind if/when you come back for more entries. :)

I'll kick things off with the first question - Do you prefer white or colored holiday lights? Hubby & I recently saw a house with very simple, all white lights, which I thought was simply gorgeous, but hubby insisted it would be better if it were broken up by some color.

Entries are open until Friday, December 16 at midnight. I'll announce the winner by Sunday, December 18. 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.

Make sure you head over to Sew, Mama, Sew to check out the rest of the giveaways!

Until next time...

And them some reading - there needs to be some reading. Having some friends over for tea/coffee, do some knitting and or sewing or preparing for either, a small dinner, maybe some fried mushrooms and a camembert bread and then a good liqueur and some Agatha Christie movies for the night ... aye that could be perfect ...
