I won, and so can you... (Giveaway time!)

I have been lucky enough to win a couple of giveaways recently and only now have got around to blogging about them. I don't have any excuse for not blogging about the first one, which was about a month ago, but the last one I just received at the end of last week, and then we had the big ice-storm you may have heard about, (if not, I blogged about it here) and we were without power for a day, and just got the internet back yesterday. Sounds like a good excuse to me!!

Anyway, enough rambling, onto the business at hand. And just a hint...you might want to read right to the end of this post:)

First I won this wonderful lot from Late Bloomer Quilts. Included was a great tea towel from Moda, this pretty cool stuff called 'Lickity Grip', and I got to choose one of her patterns. I chose the bag pattern because I think I have a good chance of getting it made, perhaps even this year. Plus I have seen it made up in real life, and it is just lovely! So thank you so much Elizabeth! I love it all!

Secondly, I won this adorable makeup bag from Lisa at Musings from the Mama Bear during the Sew Mama Sew big giveaway day. Well Lisa must have known how badly I needed this. My makeup is already in it, and my old one was immediately taken over by my 8 year old girl who has dreams of wearing makeup. And for now, that's all they are. Dreams! Thank you soooooo much Lisa! I really truely love it!

Now, since I have been the recipient of some goodies of late, it's my turn to return the gesture. Just leave a comment on this post by tomorrow night, Wednesday night, and I'll randomly pick a name to win a little purse which I made. They were quite popular at the craft fair I vended recently, and just the right size to put your change in, or even your cell phone. Yes mine fits, I tried:) And you have a choice....
The blue polka dot one is made with batting, so is soft, and the Amy Butler fabric one is made with Craft Fuse, so is firmer. And if a little purse isn't enough of a girly fix for you, I'll add a couple of girly cuffs. They fit my 8 year old Sofia perfectly and she LOVES to wear them. The pink one even has vintage ric rac. They would make a great stocking stuffer for a little girl. There will be a whole bunch in Sofia's stocking this year. I might tell her Mrs Claus sews just like Mum does!

Just leave a comment, and say which purse you would choose, (you get both the cuffs)and it could be on the way to you in time for Christmas!
