sew mama sew giveaway day

I'll be honest, I'd forgotten about the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day giveaway day, untill a heap of giveaways started appearing on some of the blogs I love.

A bit of stitching

So after a quick scan of my messy sewing corner I decided it would be nice to do a Giveaway of one of the embroidered hoops I can't stop making at the moment. I just love the Laundry Day pattern by Tasha Horsley that I stitched up recently and have already started another one.

If you would like to win one of these hoops, which I will make especially for you, please leave a comment below.

I'm happy to send it anywhere, and if you let me know your favourite colours I'll try my best to stitch the quilt of your dreams :)

This is open until the end of the day on Friday 16th December. Good luck!



EDITED!
We have a winner!

Thankyou so much to everyone that entered my Sew Mama Sew Giveaway! I wish I could stitch up a little hoop for all of you but that would just be a bit bonkers!

Without further ado, the winner of the Embroidered hoop is.........

Comment 301 who is Judi

I know it says comment 101, but that's because the comment was from the second page of comments, if that makes sense.

Congratulations Judi! I'll email you this evening to get your address :)

Now I've just finished a hard day's work and I'm going to put my feet up and have a cuppa!

Have a great weekend!
