I've had a bit of thing for circles after doing these blocks for Krista in the Fresh Modern Bee 2 . So I thought I'd incorporate circles into my giveaway item. I used my new Go!Baby to cut the 1" circles that are dotted around the central circle. I was amazed how easy it was to use and I'm looking forward to using it again very soon :) The base fabric is a warm natural linen, the centre circle is Kaffe Fassett and the surrounding circles are Amy Butler, Denyse Schmidt and Patty Young. I kept with the circle theme and quilted the cushion front with a free motion pebble effect (my first attempt at this so be gentle with me). The back of the cushion is a plain linen envelope back with a brown button fastening.
Yvonne has been very generous and cut into her extensive stash of Liberty lawn fabrics. There are 50, 3" squares up for grabs, they'd be perfect for hexies. Yvonne has made a very cute bag in Liberty fabric to hold these lovelies. You'll see evidence of her fancy new machine at work in the label "Taking Liberty" :) Don't they look tempting?
So now for the details of the giveaway. One lucky winner will win all the loot! The giveaway will run until Saturday 5th February 5.00pm (GMT). You can have 2 chances to win!!
For one chance to win share with us your worst fashion faux pas.
For me this was hair related, a very tragic poodle perm. What makes this even sadder is that I can't blame the 80s, it was about 5 years ago, oh the shame!
Yvonne's faux pas is also hair related (we are so alike, we chose these independent of each other, I guess it's true like mother like daughter!) although, personally, I think the faux pas was my Dad's not hers. After spending hours at the hairdresser having her hair scrunch dried, Dad asked when she was having her hair done. When she told him that she had he suggested she go and ask for a refund! Not a happy Mummy!
For the second chance to win, if you're a follower already leave a comment to say that you are and if you're not please feel free to become a follower and leave a comment to say hello :)
So there you have it, our first giveaway. I think these goodies look rather lovely together. I wonder if it would be wrong to leave a message on my own blog for a chance to win ;) Just kidding you, I promise to let these goodies go just as soon as the random winner generator gadget thing decides who the winner is. I'd better investigate how that works before Saturday :)
Good luck to you all! Please make sure you leave a way for me to contact you if you win as I will have to redraw the winner if I can't get in touch with you and that would be a shame, right?
Note to self, don't be too disappointed if noone enters, the goodies are cute enough to keep all to yourself ;)
