Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day (And Some Finishes)

It is time again for the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!!  Yay!  There are always fun things to win and new places to visit!  There are pages and pages of giveaways, so make sure to visit and enter to win!

A long time ago (which seems to be a recurring theme around here) I started making seasonal embroidery projects to hang in my kitchen.  I had finished all but the winter one, and that is probably because I had Christmas quilts/embroideries to hang, and I just figured I didn't need to until recently.




The one good thing about it taking me so long to finish it is that it is always nice to have a new something hanging around!  ;)  This was from a pattern card from Primitive Stitches.


I just put the last square on the border of this quilt from a sew along with Lori Holt, #haveyourselfaquiltylittlechristmas, on Instagram last year.  This was such a fun quilt to make, and I cannot wait to get it quilted and hung for the holidays!

Now for the giveaway.  I have a $25 gift certificate to Stitchin' It Up Quilt Shop that is available to anyone anywhere in the world.  The giveaway will be open until Monday, December 14 at 8 a.m.  I'm a little late getting started here, so I will keep it open a couple of hours longer. To enter, just leave a comment letting me know if you are making any gifts this year.  You can have a second entry by letting me know if you follow my blog.  Please make sure I can contact you, if I am unable to, I will immediately draw from another comment.  Good luck on the giveaway, and Happy Stitching!!  --Kristen

I'm trying to finish up a Christmas quilt, 3 table runners & a few small projects like pot holders & dish cloths. Hopefully they will soon be ready to be wrapped & delivered. You must be happy to finish you cute projects in time for Christmas this year and check them off your list. Who wouldn't love to win that gift certificate. Just in case edoodypdx@gmail.com
