GIVEAWAY EXTRAVAGANZA!!!

I love to watch the Ellen show 
because it makes me chuckle, laugh, smile, and occasionally cry. 

This past week she had a guest, 
Tom Shadyac, 
who made the very touching and joyfull movie called Happy.
(available for free download from itunes)

On the Ellen show, 
when Tom said, 
"Move into your own heart and find out what brings you joy." 
my heart skipped a beat and 
I knew right then what this week's "little" would be...


My house of love set up in my heart, open to new deliveries of love!

Limited sewing this week as it was SUNNY 
and the outside was calling!!!

We went down to Seattle for the 50th anniversary of the Space Needle


and again inspiration struck as I thought about this month's giveaway.

1. SEVEN FAT QUARTERS OF SPACE THEMED FABRIC!


As I was searching for my space themed fabric pile (get it?! Space Needle), 
the happy sunshine bug must have bit me 
because I created... 

FOUR MORE GIVEAWAY SELECTIONS!!!
(all goofily tied into our Seattle trip -
five total giveaway choices since the Space Needle is five decades old!)

2. FIVE FAT QUARTERS OF THE LOVELY  "TANGO" BY PAMELA MOSTEK


(since we saw so many great spring flowers)

3. SIX FAT QUARTERS AND ONE 1/2YARD OF PICNIC THEMED FABRIC


(Since we ate delicious burgers from a food truck named Charlie's)

4. SEVEN FAT QUARTERS OF SHOE THEMED FABRIC!!!



(Since we took the Monorail to Pikes Place Market and hiked...and hiked...and hiked)

5. EIGHT FAT QUARTERS OF HEATHER BAILEY'S FRESHCUT LINE


(This line is quite sweet. I think we had a sweet time and I know all of you who read my blog are sweet!)

OK! Here's the nitty gritty - 

Everyone can play! 
One chance - Leave a comment sharing a cool tourist attraction where you live and if you ever visit.
Also, tell your first and second choice of fabric. I will try very hard to give you what you want.
Second chance - become a follower.
Third chance - tell someone new about my blog.

Son number 2 will pick winners next Sunday night.
Enjoy!!!

  3. A cool tourist attraction where I live is the cloud gate, but everyone calls it the ' chicago bean'. It really does compel you to walk up to and around it. I'll be in that neighborhood next week so I'm sure to stop by!
    The freshcut line never goes out of style so that's my pick!

  4. I'm just outside of Seattle, loving this low 70's weather! I'd say my favorite tourist attraction is the Pike Place Market, since I never get around to going unless out of town company shows up.
    Thank you for the giveaway!
    My first choice would be Heather Baileys Freshcut line
    My second would be the picnic themed one..yes my husband was suggesting I make him a food related themed quilt just last week, and he does want hot dogs and bacon in it..

  5. I live in Marysville, and unfortunately the big tourist attraction is the outlet mall or maybe the casino, it's a toss up. Well I guess we could call Aunt Marys quilt shop a tourist attraction, it is one of my favorite places to go. My picks on your giveaway would be 2 and 5. Thanks

  7. I live in Springdale, Ohio. Not a big tourist area. But... I do live down the road from Jungle Jim's International Market. Google it. I visit often. It is an awesome place. My picks would be picnic fabric and shoe fabric. Thanks!
