It's giveaway time!


For my Christmas Giveaway (and also coinciding with my 300th post!) I've joined forces with Corrie from Retro Mummy (you know her already, right? Fabulous online store with gorgeous fabrics, books & gadgets - basically a sewer's paradise!)

Corrie and I are offering a $50 gift voucher to spend on anything (yes, anything!) you like in the Retro Mummy store.

So, here's what you need to do to enter:

1. Leave a comment here telling me what would be the first thing you would buy from the store if you win. (This will give you one entry)


2.
Blog about this giveaway with a link back to here. (This will give you two entries)


I will draw a random winner on Sunday 6th December, that will give you a couple of weeks to spend the voucher and totally spoil yourself for Christmas.


Fingers crossed for you!

Oooooo me first???

Given that I already know what I want from Retromummy this is super easy.

I've been eyeing off the Bontany Charm pack for a while now, I've got some Ladybird waffle in my cart but havent been through checkout, I love the petite rose (it reminds me of a fabric that was on a much loved outfit of DD) and I would get a metre of something from the Grandmother's Flower range... just not sure which because there are so many gorgeous ones to choose from.

Off to blog!!!

Jade said...

oooh - the first thing I would rush over to buy is those gorgeous handmade knitting needles!!!

Nic Wood said...

groundginger said...

Mmmmmm. Retro mummy is lovely hey? Great service too. I would buy the chandelliers and butterflies. And then I would sit on my hands (impossible)..

Vindiciti said...

Oh.My.
The first thing I would buy would DEFINITELY be fabric.
Either the Mini Scene on Cream...or the Cute Girls on Pink...or the High Tea...or the Cherries and Strawberries on Pink...or the Chandeliers and Butterflies...or the Super Soft Sheep Flannel...or the Bambi and Friends on Black...or...I could keep going! EGAD! There are so many GORGEOUS fabrics that I could make beautiful things for my little girl! I'd never be able to decide if I won!

Karen said...

Thanks for the lovely giveaway and congratulations on 300 posts, wow!
I think I would have to go for the red cherries and strawberries fabric - though I know Corrie has some Red Riding Hood coming - so once that is in it would be my first pick.

Sue Cahill said...

I would put the prize toward the Grandmother's Flower Garden - Lecien Strips, they are too lovely and would make an incredible quilt.

Clare said...

Hmmm so tough limiting to just 1 but I would definatly buy fabric Squirrels and daisies is my favourite at the moment but I also love all Melly and Me patterns so I would have to get a few of them too! :S

Quilary said...

I would get the In a Spin quilt pattern because I have a hoard of paisley prints that I want to showcase - and that looks just like it would do the trick.

CraftyMummy said...

Hmmm... so tricky to choose... very tempted by the PVC after reading Retro Mummy's blog about using it as a tablecloth... but might go for the "cute girls on cream" fabric. Heading off to blog now...

anne said...

zofia said...

Wow what a generous giveaway!
Retromummy has such yummy stuff!
I'd go some of the Grandmother's Flower Garden fabric and some Two Little Banshees patterns.

Nanbon44 said...

Maybe the jelly rolls like Grandmother's Flower Garden fabrics might be the first thing I would rush to buy. Any fabric would work for me as I use it in my Charity Quilts for Seniors.
I just love giveaways, now I am off to my blog to let everyone know about this one.
