A Little Something

After that little hoarding scare (and I'm glad to know I'm not alone in that!), I spent much of Saturday night sorting through old quilting books and patterns, trying to cull out the ones that no longer "speak" to me or that I've already made and won't make again. Along those lines, remember this Christmas pillow I made a couple months ago?


(One of my stitchery friends was working on hers today--it was our monthly get together. It's a fun little project.)

Anyway, in cleaning out, I came across the pattern. I knew I had extra button packs and I also had the fabric cut to make a second pillow--but I never did. So I thought I'd have a little giveaway for the pattern, buttons, and fabric to make the front of the pillow (or wallhanging, tablerunner--whatever). (Note that the "kit" does not contain enough fabric for the ruffle I added nor does the pattern include instructions for making it with a ruffle. The "kit" also does not contain embroidery thread--just the button embellishments and basic fabric.)


If you'd like to win this one, and if you have a US address, just leave me a comment, asking to be entered in the drawing. Tomorrow night I'll pick the name of the winner and announce who won on my Monday post. Please come back to see if your name is drawn and email me to claim the prize. Good luck and Merry Christmas!

Cute pillow, what a nice giveaway! Would be fun to win, and even possibly get finished before Christmas! I to have hoarding tendencies, some of the things I find when I'm looking for something else is amazing! I enjoy your blog, it is the first thing I read in the morning. Your adventures jump start my day!

I admit, I have guilt signing up for this giveaway as I won your WONDERFUL selection of scraps, which I have so enjoyed fondling and imagining what I can and will create. But, I so would love to win the "fixins" to create the adorable gingerbread boy's pillow. So with shame in hand, please enter me in the giveaway. Thanks so much for sharing!
