Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day & Blogiversary

Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day kind of snuck up on me this year. Luckily I was already planning a giveaway for my blogiversary (three years this week!). Yay!

If you are new here, welcome! I'm M-R and I live in Ottawa, Canada with the hubster and my three wild things (9, 7, and 4). I quilt. A lot. It lasts longer than housework. :)

I put together this little purple, yellow and grey combo for you from Mad About Patchwork. Mmmm...


To win this bundle of fat quarters, just leave a comment telling me what your favourite colour combo is these days. Followers get a bonus entry -- just leave a comment. For another bonus entry, follow me on Facebook or Twitter and leave me a comment saying so. 

No reply bloggers, please leave your email address in your comment, otherwise I'll need to pick someone else. This giveaway is open until Friday, May 16 at 8 p.m. EDT. The winner will be chosen via Ms. Random Number Generator and announced on May 17th. I usually reply to comments, but I don't think I'll be able to keep up so I'll thank you for entering now and I wish you good luck! For other great giveaways this week, check out Sew Mama Sew.

Before I go, I thought I share a few photos I was able to get this weekend. With the gorgeous weather we had, I 'made' the boys take me to the Tulip Festival this weekend for Mother's Day. Some tulips were open, but many are just days away from opening. Next weekend should be phenomenal. Can you tell I'm working on the 'close up with the fuzzy background'? ;)






Have a good one!
