Happy Giveaway Day!

Happy giveaway day!
Twice a year, the folks at Sew, Mama, Sew host a big giveaway day, where lots of sewing bloggers give away sewn items or sewing supplies. This time I have a copy of the newest issue of Modern Patchwork to give away.
modern patchwork 

This issue of Modern Patchwork has instructions for a pillow I designed. I still think the block would look good made up into a quilt... maybe someday.
pinata pillow

This giveaway is open to anyone living on planet earth.
To enter, please leave a comment on this blog post telling me something interesting. (Something more than "pick me!")
The giveaway will be open until December 13, 2013 at 5 p.m. PST.
I'll notify the (randomly chosen) winner by December 15, 2013.
Good luck with all the giveaways!

I crave root beer popsicles, even in winter

Kara said...

You're being awfully exclusive on your shipping! :) Due to extremely slow service, I have sworn off my single addiction, Sonic lemon slushes. I swore I wouldn't go again until the new year (6 weeks at the time), but I'm going through terrible withdrawls, and thinking of caving.

Did you know an Ostrich's eye is bigger than it's brain!

Jodi - usairdoll said...

Great magazine! Something interesting? I grew up in Alaska, on a farm and walked a mile, each way to the highway to catch the school bus to and from school. Bus ride was 17 miles from my house to the school. All true, hehe. I had a wonderful childhood and wish I could have given my kids something similiar. Wishing you and yours Happy Holidays!

Thank you for a super giveaway and a chance to win.

ruthsplace said...

I love your pillow.

Something interesting...? I have never had a winter Christmas. My goal is to spend Christmas in Germany or Denmark before I'm too old to enjoy it.

Leila said...

We had a pie night today. A meat/potato/carrot pie for the main dish and an apple/cranberry pie for dessert. My kids said we should have pie night every night. :)

Mara said...

I live in a beautiful place called Meteora Greece (look it up) and our house is on a postcard.

Bailey said...

My kids were playing monster and hiding under their bed so I made a trail of M&Ms to lead them out so the mommy monster could tickle them.

juceyj03 said...

My husband and I both have one child from a past relationship and both of them all 11 but the crazy thing is that the both were born on the same day in the same hospital..CrAzY! We now have a child together that was also born in the same month as other other to children but later in the month!!
The kids think it is so totally cool because very one thinks they are twins!!
Thanks for the chance, Jessica

April Boyer // Modern Handmade said...

I recently found out that Yorkshire pudding is not pudding. At least not pudding as Americans know pudding. It's easy to make and delicious as well!

kimberlier said...

I work part time as an art therapist and a counselor at an outpatient mental health clinic and this past year, i a taught our clients how to quilt. We had such a good time!

Jan Baker said...

We have the only grass rodeo left in the US. The 104th is next year in September.

Carla said...

That is a great pillow and congrats on the magazine. I could use a new magazine. I really need to be doing some holiday decorating. I am thinking about setting up the tree on Christmas eve this year. That's what they do on tv and in the movies. I have not purchased one gift this year either. I'm in trouble. lol

I burned the first batch of christmas cookies and need to make up for that. But not today... Thanks!

Jen Barnard said...

2 days ago I finished my first quilt, well, I think that's interesting.

Barbara O. said...

I have a Tilda design fabric angel sitting in a wreath for Christmas decoration. Tilda designs are cute and worth a try, but there aren't any pillow designs. Thanks for the chance!

Donna Kory said...

I couldn't stand to drink black coffee, although I've tried for years. When I gave up drinking soda, I instantly loved black coffee. I have yet to have my coffee this morning, hence this boring interesting fact. :p

Lisa Marie said...

It's still early and I couldn't think of anything particularly interesting so here's something amusing. A poem. My son thought this was hilarious when he was young.

Snowball By Shel Silverstein

I made myself a snowball
As perfect as could be.
I thought I’d keep it as a pet
And let it sleep with me.
I made it some pajamas
And a pillow for its head.
Then last night it ran away,
But first– – it wet the bed.

Nati said...

Thanks for the chance to win! Something interesting about me is that I live in Luxembourg... the tiny little country in Europe! And it is really cold :)

Miz Karen said...

At 50 years of age I taught myself to quilt. I have now been quilting 72 years.

Melissa @ Missouri Mel said...

We've started a remodel project of our living room. We're going to put up wood planks and paint them for a farmhouse/cottage look. I'm very excited about this!

Kayla Yapuncich said...

Thanks for the chance! Something interesting... One time I was watching TV when the remote batteries died so I got up, threw the old batteries away, opened the drawer with the batteries, took out the wine opener, opened a bottle of wine, poured myself a glass, sat back down, and couldn't figure out why the remote wasn't working! I was clearly distracted that night!

Karen P. said...

I love quilting magazines but that is something I never spend money on so I'd love to win it! Congrats on the pillow!

Julia Floyd said...

I'm from Argentina, I have three dogs, two cats and two puppys ♥

cllcraft said...

What's interesting? Everyone's comments!

Laughing Owl said...

Reading all the comments is so much fun :) Well. I'm Russian (snow, bears, vodka, that kind of staff), but I'm currently living in Indonesia. This is going to be the first New Year I celebrate without snow and cold. It feels so strange. My brain just can't believe it's December, because there is no snow. And Christmas decorations in shops look just absolutely out of place and kind of surreal...

Judy H said...

Retired from an airline and moved to one part of the country they don't fly to! And then got a part time job at the library handling books and as an avid reader this is giving the keys to the drug store to a drug addict.

Kim M said...

For many years, I did a Polar Bear Swim in my hometown's river on New Years Day. Some years, they even had to break through the ice to access the river for us!

Although I fly back to my home in California in 9 days, I'm actually finishing up a study abroad semester in Aix-en-Provence right now. The language has kept me on my toes, but I have loved this adventure!

Jill said...

My husband is convinced that our 3 year old will never learn to drive a car. She won't need to with self-driving vehicles which will become the norm. It's so futuristic to me, seems hard to believe.

Bethany Martini said...

Our Christmas tree is made up entirely of pink and silver ornaments!

stephmabry said...

I don't know the likelyhood that I will win, but I wanted to share this site with you any way if you like random knowledge, you will be heaven! *\0/* Cheers!]

Thank you for the chance.

cheeky monkey said...

Pick me!

ok, you want to read more! Let me think! This is kind of a hard question not knowing what you find interesting but I might just tell you some simple things: Did you know that a 6 year old can start laughing when you sing "silent night ... sleep in heavenly peace" cause she thinks you are singing about peas .. or was it pee she had in mind? who knows! she could not stop laughing.

Karen said...

Something interesting....? How about, I've made over 70 quilts in the last 3 years and I STILL havent made one for MYSELLF! That's actually probably pretty common with us quilters, though! Thanks for the chance to win! Enjoy reading everyone's 'interesting' comments:-)

Ali said...

I love some of these answers! I'm going to be vague, I got a tarantula this year, and what it does to cockroaches in order to eat them is very interesting. Horrifying, but interesting. Leaving it at that :|

Jayne said...

Interesting. I find it interesting that much of my fabric is not me...most was bought before I really knew my style. But the most interesting part...I cannot part with it!

Lyanna L. said...

Thanks for the chance to win -- as far as interesting facts go... I love pandas and when I was younger my dream job was to go to China and work on a giant panda reserve.

Since I don't speak Chinese nor do I like any oart of living in the outdoors (bugs, dirt, etc.) and am a picky eater I realized in high school that was perhaps not the best career path for me.

I still want to go to China & see the giant pandas though. One day.

That looks like a great book. I always thought of myself as a traditional quilter until the last year or so. I am loving all of the modern fabrics and designs.

Anonymous said...

I have been going thru my stash picking out fabrics to use to make pillow cases for my 10 grandchildren for Christmas. I like to find fabric that "matches" their personality.

CraftyHourMom said...

This week my 4-year old son surprised me by writing a card for his aunt by himself. He sounded out the letters: "e t emle" (auntie Emily) "FLOVE Benny" (from/love Benny). I like it. New word: flove!

Vicki said...

This comment was emailed to me by Clarice: I live in Maine and love to quilt. Mostly I make lap robes and other things to donate to Chaplinacy Service of Maine. I use scraps and yard sale yardage. I do about one quilt a year which I give to someone in the family. In the summer I garden a little, keep pots of things growing on my patio. I don't do a lot as I am about to turn 85 years old and can't manage as much as I used to. I would love to get your magazine and the pattern you showed on your blog. Have a Merry Christmas. Clarice

patchworkdelights said...

Hmm something interesting, let me think a long long long time ago one of my relatives was related to a Dutch King, does that make me a princess? Or maybe has anyone else that you know had 3 root canals in one year on one tooth before they built up the courage to get it pulled out? The latter hasn't happened yet, stil working on the courage bit! Thanks for the great giveaway, love the pillow! Fi

handmadeby EvaRose said...

did you know quilting is the most popular sewing category hobby after clothes making?
I think it is addictive! I like your chicken quilt block tutorial- I will use it to make a wall hanging for my mum's kitchen. I am thinking of adding a red gingham border and a band of cream linen at the bottom, where she can pin things.
Thank you for taking part and introducing your blog- I ma now a follower.
Merry Christmas

Pat V. said...

Why is it when someone says "tell me something interesting" or "tell me a joke" my mind goes completely blank. Does this happen to everyone? I live near Seattle, and although we get tons of rain we seldom get snow.

amy and the bad cats said...

i have 5 cats, and when one jumps on the bed at night, i can tell which one it is just from the weight and how he/she moves!

hcolvin said...

Interesting? Hmmm, how about this: The automatic popup bread toaster was patented before the bread slicing machine. 1919 and 1928. That’s right, people sliced their own bread for the toaster for almost a decade before sliced bread was sold.
Love the book and your pillow!

Kathy Davis said...

When I was 10 in 1962, I decided to make a quilt. I asked all the neighbor ladies for scrap fabric and with the help of my mom I hand pieced enough 9 patch blocks to make a quilt. My dad built a quilt frame and the whole family got involved. My dad and both older brother helped my mom and me do the quilting. Lots of pricked fingers but we got it done and I still have it today. It is a well loved memory of my first sewing project. Thanks, Kathy

My great grandmother's aunt dated Al Capone and my great grandmother received a fur coat from Al Capone as a gift. Not a respectable man at all. Actually died out of prison due to syphilis but it's still interesting none the less.

Material Girl said...

I bought a bar of Lindt dark chocolate with caramel and a touch of sea salt. The chocolate was awesome but I didn't taste or see any caramel. The sea salt was really crunchy but no salt taste. Wahhhhhh! It was chocolate with nuts, I don't even know what kind. And I bought 2 bars. One was to be gifted,forget that now! How did that happen? Better than pick me? True story!

leighdavenport.net said...

We have a possum which comes to visit and steal the cats food, he has a manky skin condition on his bum (its a type of dermatitis according to the wildlife people I rang) so we decided he's a zombie possum and named him Shaun, because the only zombie movie I've seen is Shaun of the Dead. Hilarious movie, you should watch it.

(Random and hopefully somewhat interesting).

Um...I wish I had something as cool as a fish with no eyelids, but I don't. I guess, I have moved 3 times in the last year. I think I might have to move again, but its up in the air. I had to give away most of my crafty stuff in the last move due to having a small trailer and no money for a bigger one. The next move will be free if we do move! So no more having to give away my prized fabric lol.

My son is napping for the first time in a very tantrum, tear filled week. Besides being upset that he was tired, crabby, etc, I was crabby I was missing prime giveaway entry time. :-) Thanks!

I think I am the only one in Oklahoma who does not have a smart phone and cannot get on Instagram. A clerk in the mall about fell out when she saw my cell phone. I don't have an IPAD or Tablet or Kindle either. I do have two sewing machines, two embroidery machines and a serger though. I am happy to follow you on Bloglovin.

My dog is worth his weight in solid silver just from emergency vet bills, Italian Greyhounds should come with a trust fund.

I froze water balloons with water and food coloring. Put those frozen water orbs in my flower pots. Gives the snow a touch of whimsy!
