When the world comes calling

***GIVEAWAY CLOSED***

Here is the proof that I am always the last to know things.  I just discovered that Sew Mama Sew is hosting it's 10th biannual Giveaway Day.  There are some pretty amazing giveaways happening on crafting blogs all around the world this week, and I want in, baby!

If you are new here, hello and thanks for stopping by.  I'm Leanne, a proud Kiwi, fabric hoarder and a lover of most things related to sewing, crochet and DIY.  I have been having fun these past few months documenting my crafting journey and discovering like-minded bloggers along the way.

I'm a bit late to the party, but I know you won't mind and I hope you like what I have to offer you.

The winner will receive 15 fat quarters of Lizzy House Red Letter Day fabrics.

If you are a Lizzy House fan like me, you will know that this collection is out of print and some colourways are very hard to find.  It took me over a year scouring the internet to find all of these fabrics, such is my dedication.

THE BORING BITS:
Please leave a comment below telling me where you are from.

There is no requirement to sign up to my blog, but if you would like to, new followers are always welcome and of course, as an added bonus, existing and new followers will gain an extra entry. Since I will be using a random number generator to select a winner, please leave a second comment letting me know that you follow.  For a further entry, feel free to share my giveaway on your own blog (if you have one) and let me know that you have done so by linking to it in a separate comment.  So, that's a possible three chances to win for very little effort - howzat?

This giveaway is open to international readers.  It will close at 8pm on Saturday 11 May 2013 (NZST) and a winner will be drawn randomly shortly thereafter.  No-reply commenters, please leave your email address in your message, otherwise I will have no way of contacting you if you win, which will make the both of us very sad. If I do not receive a reply within three days of making the draw, I will choose another winner.

And in case you were wondering about the random music video, it's New Zealand Music Month, so feel free to play some Kiwi sounds while you're leaving me a message and you might even spot some scenery from your own part of the world in it.

Thanks again for stopping by my blog, and good luck to you all.

  1. So, I'm obviously first, I hope it brings luck. :-) Nobody wants to be first, but to be pickes as first or as 177th has the same probability ratio...

    Thanks for the chance!
