May Giveaway Day - Yay!

Well I'm joining in the fun and giving away some fabric and patterns as part of Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day!  Okay, so I know you're doing the rounds (like I will be very soon), so lets get down to business. I'm going to give you some choices people.

The lucky winner will choose one of the following fabrics/packs:

Here we have a half yard of Heather Ross' Lightening Bugs Dream Bikes up for grabs;


OR maybe a charm pack (42, 5 inch squares) of Odyssea by Momo takes your fancy;


OR what about a charm pack (42, 5 inch squares) of Panache by Sanae?


I'm also giving away two of my patterns of your choice. You can choose from the patterns listed down my sidebar, or "Sierra's Forest" or the quilt pattern that will appear in Down Under Quilts magazine next month (I'll email you a sneak peak to help you choose).


Tempted? Just leave a comment telling me a random fact about yourself, something fun or quirky or whatever. I'll pick a winner randomly on Thursday 20th May and email them so they can tell me what fabric/patterns they would like (make sure your email address is available so I can contact you). I'm happy to post internationally so everyone is welcome to leave a comment (just one each please).

So I'll get the ball rolling with a few random facts about me:
  • I trekked through Nepal on my own for a month
  • My teeth click together when I eat
  • My second baby was born in water
See its easy. Can't wait to hear all about you!

Addit: I'm just loving all of your comments!!! You guys just crack me up!

Another Addit: I've just heard Saffron Craig is having a giveaway over at her blog. Head over and check it out (its not on "the list")

  3. giveaway day is so fun! I love that sew mama sew organizes this. Some random facts about me ... hmmm ... other than the fact that I love to sew? I have a sick obsession with chocolate, I love to read, and have been known to stay up all night if I get hooked. I love to travel, by bus, train, car, plane - doesn't matter - but I have never been to Australia : ) Maybe one day. vmiller1091@rogers.com

    Let's see, a random fact about me. If I had a middle name it would be Random. But I don't have a middle name.

    No, that's not it. Oh! How about this? I have 'level' feet. I can tell when standing on a tile or a slab if it's level or not. I learned this when building a retaining wall out of those big cement block things. After the first few, we just did away with the level tool and I just stood on them & could tell where they needed to be raised or lowered to be level.

    Howzat for random?
