Giveaway Game

To celebrate 3 years in blogland I thought I'd have a giveaway (with a twist!).
Below is a sneaky peek at what you could win ... you have to guess what the 3 items are!
(Hint: 2 patterns and some fat quarters.)
To enter leave me a comment which includes your 3 guesses. I will use the random number 'thingy' to choose the winner. (All comments will be included so don't panic if you're unsure about your guesses!)  Overseas readers are welcome to enter ... I enjoy finding out who you are and where you're from.



With 250 posts in 3 years I am certainly not as prolific as many bloggers but I do try and keep it interesting and focused on quilting/stitching. Pre-blogging I was not very confident about my stitching abilities but that has changed a lot with the encouragement I receive each time I do a post. However, I think the best thing about my blogging adventure is the good friends I've made both locally and globally. Thank you to all of you.

I will close the giveaway at midnight on Friday 14th January ('Penguin' time!)
Good luck to all.

  57. Well, I could copy some of the comments above and act like I knew the answer, when in fact I was absolutely clueless and knew none of the answers. So instead of telling a fib, I'm going to be up-front and say "adore the fabric with the words, it is totally awesome" and love the other items too, even though I have no idea what they are. I'd love to win them, so I'm glad I don't have to have the correct answer to win. Cool giveaway idea. dmj53(at)hotmail(dot)com
