Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!

Congratulations to #534 OhioLori!  You're scrap packs are on their way!!

Thanks to everyone who visited!!

**********************************

Hi all!  I'm really excited for Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day!  I've loved entering it myself in years past, and now I get to join in on the giving!  


For the newbies here, I'm Mary and I love sewing, and knitting, and pretty much everything that involves making.  I love filling this space with projects that I'm working on and showing off some of my finishes.  


My big love lately has been scraps.  I've been collecting better and better scraps, and I love a good sewing project that lets me just play with them.

My bucket of little scraps, made from scraps!
And what better way to share my love of scraps than to get you some of your own!  I'm too much of a hoarder to part with mine, but I'll offer up two scrap packs from Hawthorne Threads.  They are really generous packs; you get about two yards of either warm, cool, or fresh colors.  So you can pick two different ones, or two of the same, whatever you want!

These are just some of the yummy fabrics I've gotten in my Hawthorne packs!
To win, leave a comment telling me which two packs you'd like.  And if you choose to follow my blog, you can leave a second comment letting me know where you follow.

Comments will be open until May 16 at 5 p.m. PST (2 p.m. EST).  I'll announce the winner on May 18.



Here's a look at some of the things I've made from my scraps recently!

  1. Hi, I am a new quilter without much of a stash, so whatever gives the most variety, I guess -- maybe one warm and one cool? I LOVE scraps too, in fact that is all I'm working from! Thanks for the giveaway. sarah@forrussia.org
