A Giveaway - Enjoy!

It has been quite a while - I hope you are happy to try your luck! I am giving away the Owl Nesting Quilt Kit (44 x 44 inches) by our very own textile designer Saffron Craig - only 12" of the spot and the binding fabric are not supplied. It will be very simple and lots of fun to make - instant gratification! - hmmm, do I really want to give it away, lol?

Here's anothery! A Layer Cake of Sherbet Pips, a nice little pack of Meadow Friends by Moda and a super pattern by our own Melanie Hurlston, featuring gorgeous little elephants.


I will close off this Giveaway next Sunday 16 October our time. No frills, you don't have to do anything special at all to enter - just have fun and maybe tell your friends. Perhaps the winner/s should have the choice of Number 1 or Number 2 - what do you think? I'd love you to leave a Comment, but more than likely I won't get to reply to all! I am still trying to be a little bit more regular with my Postings.

Will say ta-ta to you with the smell of roses - Seduction I think it is and is somewhere linked to Iceberg - I did ask the opinion of the very nice young male assistant at Bunnings, Seduction!! - a few blushes and then I bought three, lol! - another has been given to me in the meantime by Girlfriends! - oh, I am so easily charmed!

Happy week ahead!

quiltmom said...

What nice prizes for your giveaway and the roses are so pretty- Fall has arrived here and the trees are golden and in places bare from the wind. Such a strange thing to think that it is spring where you live and fall in the Northern Hemisphere. Quite the amazing world.
Thanks for hosting your generous giveaway. Your winners are going to love your prizes.
Warmest regards,
Anna

Lizzie said...

Lurline, it's lovely to see you back in the saddle again, I've missed your smiling face in blogland. What a generous giveaway, thank you..

Lurline..I came to your blog (which I don't read every day ),to refresh my memory on your great tutorial with the wedge ruler.I re discovered a 12.5 wedge I bought a couple of years ago and as yet haven't used.Its now time.Its 12.5"and has no markings,but I believe it takes 24 wedges to complete the circle.THe Bom block you are working on is fabulous...I love it

Bev C said...

Hello Lurline,

I have the Seduction rose, it is a great bloomer.
Thanks for the chance to enter your lovely giveaway.
Happy days.
Bev.xoxo

SamanthaK said...

Your rose bush is beautiful! unfortunately everything around here has 'retired' for the season :( The fabrics you are giving away are so cheerful! I'd love either one! Thank you!

Anonymous said...

Hi, I just love No. 1, I think Saffron Craig's quilts and fabrics are fabulous and I love owls. Thanks!
Deb from Perth

Mom C said...

I was going to dig up my roses and give up on them but, one is blooming and gorgeous! I think it is the peace rose and it is beautiful. The others are all running branches and no blooms, no matter how much I prune. I think they need a spot where they can just run wild and that's not in my little front garden! Thank you for the giveaway. Either prize would be welcome and worth winning.

Gloria said...

I wasn't going to enter, but last night I heard an Owl so am taking that as an omen!

I don't know the rose in your picture. Is it one bred in the Sothern Hemisphere?

Jennifer Gail said...

Yum, I'm now following. I'm having a giveaway too. Jump on over. I'm more likely to follow if no hoops are required. Thanks I like both:)

Grethe said...

I can smell the rose all the way up to Norway:-)
