Giveaway Day - Selvage Bucket Scrap Bag

*****Thanks for all your comments!  The winner of this Giveaway is Michell!  Congratulations, and I hope you love the little Selvage Bucket!***

Hi and welcome to my blog for those of you that are new! I hope you will take a look around, and don't judge me by the past month - my baby is getting ready to graduate from high school so I've been a little distracted from my usual quilting and sewing lately.

I almost missed Giveaway Day - but was reminded as I was catching up on my blog reading this weekend (thank goodness for Quilt Market - I didn't fall too far behind over the last few days!)  I had lots of fun last year with my guessing game of buttons, but since I've been so busy this month don't have a similar challenge for you this time.  I guess we'll just have to do the random drawing thing this time - hope you don't mind!  Leave a comment telling us what your favorite color is - I think mine changes with the seasons, but right now I am loving yellow.


I will be giving away this fun little selvage bucket - perfect for keeping on your sewing table to throw your selvages in.  Or you can hang it on the wall to store whatever you like - they really are handy and oh-so-cute!  (It does have a little loop for hanging, though it doesn't show in these pictures.)

If you'd like to have an extra chance, go like my facebook page and let me know in a separate comment.  I will ship internationally, so everyone is eligible to participate - thanks for dropping by and good luck to you!

For more Giveaway fun go to SewMamaSew - lots of fun, and so many opportunities to win some neat items!

I like that. I'm really liking pink right now, which is way off for me because I've always hated pink (except when I dyed my hair black, then it was great!)

Laura said...

My favorite colors are orange and green!

Amy said...

My favorite color is usually blue except for when it's purple or orange or yellow. I guess my favorite color is dependent on whether I'm going to be wearing it, looking at it or using it in a project. Does that make sense?

Sandra :) said...

My favourite colour is pink (especially when it's paired with orange!) :) My fingers are crossed - I love selvages, and I love this cute little bucket :)

I'm totally in love with turqoise - we've had a long love-affair and when in doubt a little splash of it just rounds a project off nicely.
