Giveaway Gifts!!

I have gathered together 3 special gifts for my 3rd anniversary blogging giveaway!   Natalie Bird's "Tis the Season" is a quilt I have just finished and when putting away the book, I discovered I have two - hence one part of the giveaway!!    I also made a pincushion with matching needlecase and scissor pocket with some Nancy Halvorsen fabrics and design.    And thirdly a Nancy Halvorsen tea towel which I have appliqued with a basket of fruit!     All useful and hopefully well received by the lucky recipient!   Remember ..... the giveaway closes at midnight on 30th January (Australian time) and the winner will be announced on 31st January.    For a chance to win ..... leave a comment here

I loved making this "Tis the Season" Quilt and the book has some gorgeous little projects also!

Blanket stitching on applique is soooooo relaxing ..... another simple way to adorn an ordinary tea towel!

And this little set was fun to make and I loved using the Nancy Halvorsen fabrics!    So ....... hopefully someone will be excited to received these special gifts!  Good luck to all who enter and thank you to everyone who has left such lovely comments and sent gorgeous emails over the past three years!   I  didn't fully appreciate how far and wide this blog goes and have enjoyed receiving lots of lovely messages and comments from near and far!   Hopefully I will continue to inspire and provide some interesting reading for others with likeminded interests!!    Have a great weekend .... wherever you are!!
