PLUS this cute little container of embellishments!


Ribbon, trim, beads, buttons, and even some bells!


Then, all these supplies come in a reversible fabric bowl I made.
One side is Christmas themed...


and this is the other side.


TA DA!!!! My merry (mostly supplies) giveaway!!!


Just to add an extra bit of fun, your prize will also come with this little suprise bag!!!! 
(Not an empty bag, of course, but a bag filled with a few more surprise supplies!)

OK....How to win...

1. Anyone who leaves a comment can win my giveaway including people who do not live in the US!
2. My middle son will randomly pick a number based on how many comments I get.
3. Leave a comment sharing what you do while you quilt, if you don't do anything else, share that too!
4. Commenting starts today and closes at 5:00 pm PST on December 16th.
5. Winner announced Saturday December 17th!!!

I sew in a corner of my bedroom, right next to the dresser that has a TV on it. When not subbing, my most favorite time to sew is at 10:00 am while the View is on TV. The Ellen Show used to come on right after the View and those were my two happiest hours for sewing, but now it's just the View that I really like and then I usually switch to a news channel for a second hour before reality calls. So, I sew, smile, get my creative juices flowing, tap into my mojo, satisfy my authentic self, AND listen to the gals at the View.

Good Luck! Boa Sorte! Buenos Suerte! Buona Fortuna! Bonne Chance! 頑張って! Powodzeniza!

Lykke Til! удачі!

  46. What an absolutely great and fun giveaway. "Santa, define naughty" - teehee.

    I am not a quilter (yet) - I've only been sewing for a few months. I do tend to put off all other stimuli though and just listen to my little Elna sing while she's working. The occasional colourful word does come into the mix though - today she broke 4 needles. Not a good zipper day at all - so we're having some 'seperate space' time. The relationships we need to form with our wesing hardware :)

    Thank you for a great giveaway and a chance to win.
