SEWN Launch Party Giveaway!

This Post is a little bit late in timing! However, here's what it is all about - I originally had joined up the SEWN Launch Party Giveaway and intended doing a giveaway, but as you know things catch up with me from time to time! I received an email from Sarah, saying I was one of the winners of the launch of her new site - I am so very thrilled, but one can hardly be a winner if one hasn't fulfilled one's commitment, can one? Oh, this is starting to sound so funny!

Here is my giveaway - a delightful pincushion designed by Heather Bailey (a really fun pincushion to make!) and two of Kaffe's fat quarters - I really welcome Comments and let your friends know, as I would like to help Sarah out with her new venture - she has given so much to Australia with her two books done in partnership, Material Obsession and Material Obsession 2!

I'll close off the giveaway Monday morning - our time - June 22 - so good luck and please visit Sarah's new site SEWN by clicking the button on my sidebar - you are in for a lovely surprise!
PS - I am happy to post Internationally as the parcel should be quite light, so please let me know if you are interested - Sarah Fielke does have international followers and I'm sure you will find a lot of inspiration there over time!

I'm not going to try for the giveaway either as it would probably cost a fortune to mail to the US. Just visiting and wanted to say hi and that I love your goodies. What a lovely pincushion. Hugs,

I just adore that pincushion. The Felts are a perfect colour match. To say I love those Kaffe Fassetts fabrics is an understatement. I would just love to be part of you giveaway :-)

'Better late than never' is the saying Lurline and in this case it's worth waiting for. That pincushion is just fabulous and of course who wouldn't like some Kaffe. I will just have to keep everything crossed for this one.
Big hugs, lizzie
