Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!

The giveaway has ended! Winner will be announced tomorrow morning in a new post. Comments have been closed. Thanks for stopping by!


Happy Giveaway day my friends! If you're a regular blog follower, just popping in, I encourage you to hop on over to Sew Mama Sew when you're done here. You will find a wonderful list of giveaways to enter this week. If you're visiting ellyn's place for the first time, welcome! I hope you'll come back often.

Now, on to the giveaway! (that's why you're here, after all. Am I right?) This time around I decided to give this cheerful pillow cover to perk up your sewing space.
 The front is all English paper pieced by me and quilted by me too. On the back, you'll find some of my treasured Liberty of London fabric....
It fits on a standard 16 inch pillow form. I'm not including the pillow form, just the cover (and surely some other treats will find their way into the package!).

All you have to do is leave me a happy comment here on this post by Friday, May 10. I will close the comments and choose a random winner on Friday evening. Anyone can enter, I love my bloggy friends all around the world. So what are you waiting for? Ready... Set.... GO!
