Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day!

Winner is Jennifer, comment #5. Announced here. Thank you to all who entered.  It was a lot of fun!


First off, I'd like to say welcome to anyone who may be visiting my blog for the first time!  I hope you will stay and have a look around.  I also have an etsy shop called Winding Bobbins, where I sell some of my handmade items (coupon code TAKE20 will get you 20% off all shop items until the end of 2012).  You are welcome to come there for a visit as well!

Today's giveaway is a huge departure from what I usually tend towards.  Most often I can be found making quilts and other small quilted items.  But I recently learned from a woman at my church how to make infinity scarves, and I'm hooked!  So today I am giving away a handmade infinity scarf made with a lovely voile fabric.  


The scarf has wonderful drape and is soft and comfortable to wear.  The fabric features several different lovely, muted colours - green, blue, orange & gray - along with black on a cream background.


In order to be entered to win this scarf, leave me a comment letting me know what colour thread is currently on your sewing machine!  If you are a no-reply blogger, be sure to leave your email address in your comment so I have a way to contact you if you win.

The giveaway will be open until December 7 at 5pm PST and the winner will be chosen using a random number generator.  I will be happy to ship internationally.

Good luck!

Lovely scarf Heather! I have white thread on my machine - I use it for pretty much all piecing. I know you're meant to use light grey for cool colours, and light tan for warm colours, but I just stick with white for everything!

Tammy said...

I have a slightly off white gutter mans thread ATM, I very rarely use other colours.

I wish I had a better answer than "white" - I'm piecing a quilt that's got a white background. So at least it's a sensible color to use, even if it's not exciting :)

melsdaisypatch said...

Sad to say it is black. My husband left his climbing tree stand out at our cabin and the mice had a lovely time eating away at the material that covered the seat on it. I had to tear it down and use it for a pattern to make a new cover for it.
