(A Giveaway) When You Wish Upon a Star...

...sometimes it still doesn't get you to the Sewing Summit! So if you're stuck at home blessed to be at home like me, then there's an alternative pity party get together happening over at amylouwho's bloggy pad!  She's having a linky party that amounts to a "virtual sewing room" for those of us who are #notgoingtosewingsummit. For those of us who are slaving away in our home sewing rooms rather than the sewing summit classes, this offers us a place to check in and report what we've been working on this weekend. I'm not going to link yet because I don't have pictures, but I have actually made some progress. The last Mystery Round Robin block I had to work on has been sent out (though my completely completed one is still here), and I started on another Carpenter Wheel last night.

Also under the heading of #notgoingtosewingsummit, I decided to hold a GIVEAWAY in honor of all the sewists who did NOT get to go to Sewing Summit! Sort of a last minute thing but I wanted it to be good since some of us didn't get to go and we need a little pick me up. I went by my LQS the other day and came across these lovely charms. I was so taken with them that I went back and picked up a few for you guys. I figured a rotary cutter and a sewing machine resulted in a block so that's what I ended up with.

The blade on the rotary cutter is all silver; that's just a shadow (of me) on the right edge. If you want a good closeup of what they look like or if you're interested in more, they are put out by pinpeddlers. Isn't it adorable all put together? Interested in winning it?
1.  Just leave a comment below for a chance to win. Aw, what the heck...
2. if you're a follower leave a second comment for another chance to win.
3. If you tweet, blog, or FB it, you can leave another comment. Have I exhausted everything? Gosh, I hope so!
OOPS! Forgot to add, make sure you are not a NO-REPLY BLOGGER or I can't get in touch with you. If you are or think you are, make sure you leave your email address in the comment so I can reach you!

I'll leave it open until 10/18, and I will pick a winner Friday morning so I can send it to it's new home. This is open internationally! It's light enough that it ought not be too expensive to send. Good luck!
This giveaway is closed!

I know, I know. Not being at Sewing Summit is killing me. So I guess I'll have to shar the pity with all the others that aren't there too. My sad part is that I don't ahve anything to link up with at the pity party since I don't have a machine to use. Oh well. Sometimes things just don't work out.

Michele said...

Of course I follow you! Hopefully to Sewing Summit 2013.

Not at sewing summit either, nor was I. Which is just as well. My new Bloggy friends might discover that I am a terribly quiet and boring person in the flesh.

Kathy Davis said...

No Sewing Summet for me. I wish... I live in the MO Ozarks and the only place to even get sewing supplies is WalMart, but glad to have it. They sure don't sell cute pins like this though.
Thanks for the chance. I LOVE to sew!
