back with a giveaway!

{Giveaway now closed, thanks to all who entered!}

I’m baaaack!  Hope you didn’t miss me too much, hahaa.  But really, thanks so much for all your kind comments, I appreciated all of them a ton.  I had a really nice break and am really glad to be back.  It actually made me realize it wasn’t that much less work not to blog, so I guess blogging itself really doesn’t take up that much of my time (it’s all that other stuff, ha, like actually sewing, taking pics, etc). 

We had fun playing in leaves,

taking pictures (my new profile pic taken by Natalie),

and enjoying time together.

So as a thank you for hanging out with me…
Here we go:
1st prize:

this lovely runaround bag complete with magnetic snap, zippered interior pocket, and slip pocket
2nd prize:

a runaround bag PATTERN
3rd prize:

a USPS flat rate box filled to the brim with my scraps

How to enter?

  • Please leave one comment, include your email address so I can contact you when you win!
  • One entry per person.
  • Giveaway ends Friday, October 29th.

    This giveaway is absolutely lovely, I couldn’t think if I’d like best to receive the first, second or third prize, they are all wonderful :)

    I’m happy also to comment here, saying I’m one of your followers, and thanks to you I gained some courage to use my sewing machine :)))

    I probably shouldn’t enter since I JUST got the bag pattern, but I super duper love the fabric on the version you made! Just in case I don’t win, what is it/where did you get it? That just might be the perfect fabric for my mom’s Runaround bag Christmas present.

    I feel the same way! I have a very small blog and my friends and family assume that I’ve been super busy, when there has been a lag in blogging. It’s not the blogging itself that takes that much time. Creating the content, that’s the timeconsuming part! LOVE all of the prizes, anyone would be welcome! Welcome back! We did miss you…

    i love this bag. and oooo i love scraps.

  287. Anna @ Fresh Dew Drops 10.27.2010 at 12:48 pm #

    Thank you for your generosity. I have plenty of bag patterns so if possible I would like to just be entered for the scraps. I could use some scraps as my daugthers are always snatching from the scrap box for their own cutting and stitching.

  288. Kristina 10.27.2010 at 12:51 pm #

    I love your blog. It actually inspired me to create my own! So thanks. Great giveaway, and especially love the third prize one, what an awesome idea :)

    YAY~ You’re back. I might not post that often back to you (feel free to smack me since you don’t know I’m reading if I don’t) but I love reading your blog. I’d miss you if you had decided that blogging is a time killer and you stopped.

    Cute pics. I love seeing others kids playing in the leaves and all the other great pics like that because my kids are all grown and out of the house now. I really miss the days when they were little. Well, I do miss them but I’ll admit it’s nice having my entire day and night of freedom too. :)
